This place is quiet and peaceful. We went in winters so it was very pleasant. The place is not far from main city, hence it is easy to camp here and return back to the hotel the next day.

Loved our hike in the Alabama Hills. Unlike anywhere and a highpoint of our trip to the west - we had only a few hours and could easily have spent longer.

We drove on Movie Road to see the Alabama Hills again in June 2018. The dirt rod was a bit wash board like, but the views were stellar on a sunny clear day. Many Hollywood movies were made here. There were some other cars around,...More

Words can't describe Alabama Hills. Childhood memories of the Lone Ranger, Roy Rogers and many other cowboys cone to mind as you meander through this amazing landscape.

Make sure to stop here and see where so many Westerns were filmed. Beautiful area to see. Brings back a lot of memories of the Westerns we have all seen.

We drive a Chevy 3500 extended cab dually & pull a 26’ 5th Wheel. We found several spots we could’ve camped. We chose to go higher up, so did camp there

Yes, you can access this with cars, but be wise, as there are some roads that are not really made for normal non-4-wheel drive cars. I think it is pretty clear which ones will work for your car.
