Launching Point for many Adventures

There are about 10 sites on the edge of the meadow. There are many trails nearby than access the Ansel Adams Wilderness. The Minarets/ Mammoth Pool road from North Fork is the best access through 2022 due to bridge damage on Beasore road. Most of the road is a two lane paved byway that has some…

Sweet year round spot

They shut off the water once it gets cold out so it doesn’t freeze, but they have showers and washrooms handy, and they have one spot you can fill up if your willing to risk frozen pipes.

Live like a king

Awesome spot, I guess they filmed the movie tremors somewhere out here along with a bunch of cowboy flicks. Great access to mount Whitney trails and close to lone pine in case you gotta restock.

Great area!

We camped here in July of this year and it was perfect! Close enough to town but out of the way enough to be quiet. Plenty of spots too. The ones closest to the main road are taken over quick but if you have 4wd you can get back pretty far and away. One of the best nights sleep we had for our trip.

Great Secret Spot!

Awesome spot! it was super close to town, while also being super peaceful! they have showers (with warm water!) and even if your not staying at the camp, you can still use them for a small fee. it was $48 a night for us, we stayed during the week, not weekends.

Awesome spot

This is definitely a boondocker's paradise. Huge selection of spots and all sorts of roads to explore. Super close to the town of Mammoth too.

Great spot!

I camped here in October and there was only a small handful of people here. Nice open area with views of the mountains. Watch out if it's windy because there isn't much covering.

Cute for what we saw!

We were arriving after dark and At first we pulled up to just a county parking lot but once we found the right place it was super cute and well kept! We literally only used it to park and sleep in our vehicle so I don’t know much about the sites but they had dry and electric sites, tokens for the…

Restricted Access

Sawmill was one of four overnight stops on my trip from NorCal through Death Valley.  Unfortunately any area that would have been a Sawmill campground is marked restricted.  There is construction underway in the area.  See Pic.  I didn't know what to make of it, so I took off and stayed in town.

Wonderful and Amazing destination

We have been coming here since the mid 1990s... my Father-in-law came up here back in the 1940s... it hasn't changed.

If you are a camper that likes to party and play loud music, this is NOT the place for you. This pristine environment is a place to re-join with nature, and enjoy the fresh air. It…

Flat and dusty

While this campground was on a lake, it was also dusty due to the sand. (I prefer mountain trees and forest). But access to the water was easy and we had fun fishing and kayaking

Great spot, easy to find

We wanted something near Bishop. Hardly anyone around, but other vans helped us know we were in the right place. A bit windy and cold though!

Great place

Don’t really have any complaints with this campground. It’s free but because of that it’s not the most developed and it’s down a long gravel road. Other than that it’s in a nice spot with beautiful surroundings and we had a great time here.
