Unique geographic area. Fun camping, just watch for rattlesnakes! Good off roading and views. Nice hikes including views of Mt Whitney. A wonderful place to do photography.

It was cool to drive through. It would have been nice to have a map to see where the different movies were filmed.

This spot was just so, so much better than we even expected, for the following reasons: - No "designated" campsites. This means you can effectively camp anywhere, and we found a choice spot right near the main road with a giant rock 'fireplace'. Even better: we couldn't see or hear anyone around us, even though there were people camping nearby.... More

This place was busy and the food was plentiful and good. Lots of choices on the breakfast menu and I'm sure they are also busy for lunch. No dinner. They kept our coffee mug full.

Awesome to explore the hills and formations for so many "old" movies as well as current movies, Gladiator, Tremors, Star Wars, Iron Man and others filed there.

If you like geology and quiet, this is the place. I love the colors of the area. There are a couple of small arches, and one of them nicely frames Mt. Whitney.

A bit tricky, following the route through the Hills. . .worth the effort. It's quite stunning and there is a great hike to the Mobius Arch.

Whether you realize it or not, you have more than likely seen the Alabama Hills before: in a car commercial, movie, or television show. Hundreds of Westerns were filmed here back in the day, and these hills are still used on occasion for movies and commercials. Fun to walk through if you like the outdoors, just make sure to bring...

Over 100 films were made in and around the Alabama Hills, near Lone Pine, Ca. Starting as far back as the early 1900's, the fabulous mountain scenery, actuallouoy the Eastern side of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, provided the backdrop for many movies about the West, and even about India. Classics like Gunga Din and Lives of a Bengal Lancer... More
