Obsidian Campground offers opportunity to get away from crowds amidst shade of aspens and pines. Campground is close to Molybdenite Creek and Little Walker River.__The river is stocked with trout. Area trailheads offer several interesting hikes. The trail from Molybdenite Creek trailhead splits, with one branch heading south into the Hoover Wilderness, and one looping north along Wheeler Creek to connect with the trail along the Little Walker River. This can be hiked as a loop from Burt Canyon trailhead (just west of campground). The Emma Lake trailhead leads to a short but steep hike to Emma Lake on the shores of Mount Emma.Generally open__in late May to mid October, weather and condition permitting.

USFS Campground without the crowds

The good outweighs the bad at Obsidian. It’s a ways from the highway, but the road is graded so it’s no big deal even for trailers and small motor homes. There is no water - pack yours in. There are pit toilets. The aspens and pines separate each campsite so you get a little more privacy than in some of the more popular campsites. If you have a trailer getting to sites past the first loop can be tricky or impossible depending on your size and clearance. There are a lot of hikes and trailheads close to this campground and it’s just a few miles from Emma Lake which is gorgeous. It’s definitely a bit away for some of the larger eastern Sierra crowds.
