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 guide to the right, which has a link to a PDF with a list of the campgrounds in Inyo County with phone numbers, number of sites, dates oprn, elevations, and more.
