Lovely Site With a Great Tent Pad Along the River

Stayed in Site 78 in the upper part of Lodgepole, which was perfect. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, no one was in the site next to us. (That one, site 74, seemed really cramped. Someone had moved the picnic table to the tent pad, but there wasn't really much space to move it anywhere else. If…

  • Sunset from Lodgepole site 78, looking toward site 73 and 72.
  • Site 78. Big tent pad. This is with a 4-person tent. Rocks around fire pit were handy to sit on. River is in background, down a little embankment. Easy walk.
  • Lodgepole site 78. You can see the table on the tent pad of  neighboring site 74, which does not appear to be in use during the 2020-2021 pandemic.

Beautiful and Remote

We loved our stay at this campground. It was beautiful, quite and the camp host was incredibly kind. My only complaint is that we were very far from any good hikes. My partner and I ended up driving 3hours to Sequoia NP so we could get a good one in. However, if you want a nice, lazy weekend in the…

Easy to get to, large sites, dump sit and water

Great location in Joshua Tree but 20 minutes from west entrance. Large pull through sites semi-level. Clean restrooms with flush toilets and running water. Good TV and cell service, close to Yucca City. It does get very windy making it uncomfortable to sit outside. Great hiking trails from…

As advertised

Stayed at Furnace Creek. Facilities as expected. Mix of tent and RV sites. Plan to secure your food and trash. I had a coyote get into the trash bag at 3 am.

Easy spot near Alabama Hills

This spot is great if you want easy access to Alabama Hills but don’t want to deal with having no toilets and no reservations. Still beautiful views throughout the campgrounds. It’s a bit easier for families here.

Desert Snow Magic

This place is absolutely gorgeous. I have camped out here 3 times now. Each time it never disappoints and never gets old. I love that it doesn’t have amenities because it lets me feel like we are far out there even though there is easy access to town.

Incredible terrain, beautiful skies, super easy access

Please note:  This review is regarding the dispersed camping.  There are (at least) two formal camp grounds right near the dispersed camping area.

We went up there with another family, both of us towing camping trailers with 4x4 trucks.  A 4x4 is not needed, nor is a high clearance vehicle. …

Memorial Weekend 2021

Amazing views in every direction. Although it was a holiday weekend, we found a great spot early Saturday morning. Find a spot not too far from a porta potty if you don’t have your own. Also be prepared for the heat and wind. A mister to cool you down and extra stakes or even weights for your tent…

Best. Campsite. Ever.

Everyone knows about Alabama Hills now (thanks social media). That doesn't diminish the beauty out there. There is a plethora of available camping spots that all fill up quickly and for good reason. Falling asleep at night looking at Mount Whitney is something I could never get used to and the…

Got more than we expected!

Needed a spot off 395, pulled in didn't have to go too far and found a spot. We arrived at night so we did not have a lay of the land but the stars were amazing and the sunrise was on point too. Neighbors near by but very quiet. I'll be back to this spot.

My only complaint is other people are very rude. Untrained pets, music from other sites... the sites are far apart, but there is no vegitation to buffer the sounds of other people.

Awesome free camping for Sequoia/kings canyon

Free dispersed camping in sequoia national forest. I got there at around 5 on a Sunday and quickly got a spot. There was a fire pit but also a fire band going on. No at&t cell reception which is true for most of the surrounding national forest/park land. People were listening to music but it…

So cool!

Super fun area! Just off the highway and easy to get to. The volcano in the distance is beautiful and fossil falls is so unique…lots of room to explore the lava flows. The campground has fire pits and a picnic bench. The bathrooms are pretty decent for pit toilets. Good place to stop!

Awesome place!

This is such a beautiful area. Take some extra water and spend some time exploring this place. The rocks give me Joshua Tree vibes, and the views of Whitney are incredible. Have fun!

Super lit camp spot

We needed a place close to 395 and this was the SPOT. The fossil falls themselves were legit, and our site was cozy. It was a bit windy and dusty, but still had a great time.
