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.

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

Camp here if it’s too late to summit Donahue SB

We camped here because it was too late in the day to summit Donahue Pass. Plenty of water! Plan well for water crossing. Impeccable views!!

Incredible views

It’s worth it to grab a fishing license up the road at Ernie’s. It was much windier than we anticipated, so definitely stale your tent down. We woke to a neighbors tent in the trees! Showers were closed because of covid, so check the site for those details. Make sure you grab a bite at the Whoa…

Great Site

Very nice campsite with around 70 sites and three ranger campsites so plenty of help. Went on a rainy day but there was plenty of tree cover and we stayed in our tent briefly.

no longer water-front

Great campsites - deep, lots of space, and quiet. The most remote location I've ever driven into - Kaiser Pass Rd. is a thing unto itself. Really cool chatting up some PCT and JMT hikers as they "laid over" at VVR next door. And we enjoyed some time at Mono Hot Springs, +/-5 mi back down Kaiser…

Beautiful, secluded spot

We were near where the coordinates take you and we didn’t see another person the entire time we were here! We saw a few fellow campers on our way in but felt really secluded when we found our spot. Expected to see more obvious pull in spots for camping but we did not, so you might have to go a…

Love it here

Right by the creek with nice trails along it and if you’re brave a little rock scrambling you can go upward. David the ground manager is the best and so helpful.

Stunning views

Next to a nice flowing river/creek with fishing available, tall pine trees with aspen trees hidden in between them are a gem. There are bear boxes which I suggest you use since there are bears around and we seen a couple of them in the campsite while camping, nice spot for you tents, picnic tables,…
