“very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

When we arrived the camp host was very nice to us we reserved another spot but he said it was to hot so he put us near the creek on a shady spot a lot of peoples were fishing and we got trout which was very nice

In the creek we could swim

This spot is also very nice if you want to go into death valley

We camped in group site 45 and it was wonderful. There was an amazing creek and there are plenty of bear boxes that even fit large coolers. The bathrooms are close but there are no showers, which we weren't expecting. The site has a fire pit with grilling rack, an oven (which was super cool), a loooong picnic table, and a faucet with running water next to the bear boxes. A bear did visit our neighbors while they were cooking in the dark and stole some food off their table when they weren't looking, so the bear warnings are no joke! (No one was harmed, just surprised.) This place has an awesome view of Mount Whitney, taunting you as acclimate for your big hike!

On our way to do some backpacking, we stopped for one night We loved campsite number 20. Pretty private, steps from the stream. Vault toilets but immaculate. Friendly campground host. Location approximately 10 minutes from town and 10 minutes from Whitney Portal. Not much shade, bit some. National forest campsite. $19 per nite. Lots of people fishing.

Took a chance and decided to go here for some winter camping, buurrrr! But really worth it. It is free in the winter, we were the only ones at the campground, it was very quiet and peaceful, very clean and well kept overall. It was worth the cold temperatures, so peaceful with beautiful views of Mt. Whitney and the stars!

Stayed here for 2 nights before/after out Whitney climb. Pretty bare, exposed sites. But great views! Pit toilets are some of the cleanest I've been to. Grounds immaculate. We stayed in site 16. Had a tree over te picnic table. Site 17 looked awesome, full tree coverage. Wouldn't want to stay there long as very hot. But since we were day hiking the summit, we were only there for 1/2 a night the first night; and the second night we passes out from exhaustion...it worked out just fine!!! And for $17/night? Just perfect.

We just got back from mount whitney today and I had a few minutes to sit down and write a review. The other reviews were right. This place was pretty bare and hot. Not much shade and definitely not much privacy from campsite to campsite. There was a little stream just down the hill from the campsite that we spent some time at and found a great place to relax although the water was freezing! I had to rate the customer service a 3 because I had originally booked the campsite from sunday the 11th to thursday the 15th and paid for it on recreation.gov. Due to some family problems we couldn't make it sunday and called recreation.gov they said there was nothing they could do and call the campsite itself. I did and I tried explaining to the man on the phone we didn't wany a refund for sunday and if we could just arrive on monday. He told us we should have reserved it for monday and should have made sure we could make it before we commit to something, but he said that there could be a possibility that it would be there, but if they needed the space we would be out of luck..even after we paid for the full 4 nights. Luckily it was still open and the only thing that saved the review was the campsite manager there. We was really nice and cool. Also recreation.gov says there is flushing toilets there. There wasn't any near our camp site just a big hole and a toillet placed over it. It was okay, not what we expected but not unusual for camping. Overall not a bad place.

My son, brother, and brothers girlfriend stayed here July 22 to 23 to climb Whitney. Host was very friendly and kept eye on grounds. Bad storms washed only road in/out of campground overnight. They did a fantastic job of rebuilding the washed out road I the morning so cars could get in and out. Bathrooms very clean and neat. They stayed at campsite number one which looked like the best one to me.
