We stayed at Coldwater Campground for 3 nights over the fourth of July holiday. They had great facilities (toilet and sinks), but no store on the campground. Firewood was for sale from the two campsite hosts located in RVs on the grounds. The campsites were somewhat close to one another, but still felt private. The campground is located between two streams, so you could usually hear the water. Some sites are closer to the water than others. We stayed at site 46, which was fairly exposed. Next time we'd like to reserve a site closer to the water. Great star viewing in the evening. It was definitely windy, so we needed to tie things down (like a shade structure) or they would blow away. Many folks had RVs parked at their sites. There were also a lot of dogs, and kids on bikes. The campsite isn't too far of a drive from a small store where you could get ice and snacks, as well as where you could rent equipment to go out on the lake (the lake is across the street from the entrance to the campground). The town of Mammoth Lakes is a short drive away, and they just installed great bikes baths around the area. The back of the campground is also the start for several great trails in the area - we definitely recommend hiking to Duck Lake, but we aware, the last stretch of the route is very steep. We certainly thought it was worth it though!
