Gorgeous Sierra camping!

This campground was wonderful.. the first campground you come to heading down into Reds meadow or devils postpile area. You’ll want to purchase your adventure pass from either the Mammoth lakes adventure center or from the guard station as you enter the park. The guard station opens at 7am. Once you turn off the main road the campsites are about a quarter mile down a dirt road. Most of the sites seemed to be trailer or RV accessible. Plenty of shade and access to the river for spectacular fishing. There are NO hookups or Cleanout areas located In the valley. There is also a camp host with Firewood for sale. The nearest store Is located In Reds Medow or back up the hill to the town of mammoth which in the summer can take up to 45 minutes to get to up the hill due to the high traffic entering the valley. Note: I had zero cell phone service. Restrooms and water were available. There is also plenty to keep busy such as The devils Postpile and Rainbow falls loop (4 miles) take plenty of water! Scotcher Lake Is also worth a cast or two! Please remember to store your food properly in the bear boxes provided for this is active bear country!
