We first came to this campground over thirty years ago and loved it. There is a small stream running alongside and a great view of Mt. Whitney. The sites are on the small side. More suitable for tents than motor homes. On my most recent visit I found it in need of some maintenance and repairs. Still, if you want...

We stayed one night at the Lone Pine campgrounds. It's the next best option to staying at the Portal. The sites seemed a bit small in some cases but worth it to be close to Whitney. Some traffic from RVs at night - we went to bed early so we could leave for a summit attempt at 2am. Clean bathrooms....

We have been camping at this campground since the late '70s and have always enjoyed it. The watering system for the trees has been broken for awhile, even before the drought, and they refuse to fix it. Now the trees are dying, and dead branches from the top of the trees are falling off causing potentially hazardous conditions to the...

My borther in-law and I stopped in here on our way to death valley. It was a great campsite at the foot of Mt. Whitney. Lot's of neat things to see. Relatively small campground with roomy sites so you are not right on top of each other. If you have read review of whitedove4444, it is spot on in describing...

Just spent two nights camping out with the Mrs. and our five-year old boy and this place was great. However, make sure you know what you are getting into and you will have a great time. The good: The campsite is small so there aren't a hundred people running around. You actually feel like you are camping. The spots are...

I understand it's a business, but they pack too many campers into a small site. If you have a TT or RV and select a pull through site they are premium, but are not really premium as the word is defined. You are better off with a back in site. The cable tv hookup provides few channels. Wi-if is not...

This was our first time camping here. Our site was great - our friends' sites were great - the whole campground is awesome. The creek was the funnest part for all the kids. The campsite is large, bathrooms are quite clean (non-flushing toilets) - they were cleaned several times a day. The views (Whitney) are phenomenal. Very close to Whitney...

Only the top 8 sites were open in mid-March and the water was not yet turned on, but we loved the blissfully peaceful quiet and unobstructed view of Mt Whitney - SO fierce on the eastern side of the Sierra. The 'Active Bears' sign made us hopeful of a siting, but no such luck. The campsites include bear boxes. Perhaps...

Wow! We were so surprised that out of nowhere there it was Lone Pine State Campground! We almost had to turn back because our old GPS took us to the wrong spot which was about 2 miles before the actual campground. My city-boy type of brother-in-law was getting nervous since it was his first time to camp until we located...
