Its a ways from the main road but a beautiful drive. Basic sites, tables and fire pits. Its also free. Pit toilets and pretty dang cold in February, but a great spot to camp if your going to hike wild rose or telescope
Just stayed there with my wife and 2 dogs had an amazing experience no camp fee and great views of the stars at night, took our little teardrop camper and had no issues finding an adequate space for it and our truck. Definitely will be back
We camped here one night on our way to Mammoth from San Diego. We accessed via Emigrant Canyon Road off of Highway 190. The winding road is about 20 or miles off the highway to the site. The campground is a small gravel parking lot with a pit toilet and sites with fire rings. This place is way off the beaten path. It’s high above the desert floor and was actually cool at night in September. The highlight here are the incredible desert vistas. You get a little window from the site but a short hike or drive and you are looking at Death Valley below.
This spot is a bit out there, but it was a great spot to camp out in the desert. There was only one other person there when we went so that was nice that it was pretty vacant and quiet. We stopped here on our way home from Northern California to Arkansas, it was a bit of a random stop but we were tired of driving and found this place. It has great desert scape views and adorable burros! There was potable water available and a pit toilet available as well. The sites had fire rings too. If you follow down the dirt road for a bit too you will find the Wildrose Kilns which were truly a cool sight to see. If you camp here, you might as well go down and check out the giant beehive like kilns. It’s a long dusty rocky trail but worth it!
