Lone Pine Campground Map

We have a fine selection of campgrounds, some high in the mountains and others on the valley floor – you can pick your location depending on the weather and the season. Some campgrounds have several amenities while others are primitive and require you to bring your drinking water.

Our campgrounds are located in Bear country. Please be aware of the proper practices for food storage.

For locations check out the  map of county managed parks and campgrounds within Inyo County.
