This campground is literally at the bank of twin lakes which appears to be crowded but campground is quiet. Nearby shop is also a big help. There were no mosquitoes and there are plenty of hiking and biking trails. Place appear to be very friendly to kids and joy for fishing, even though fly fishing from the shore may not... More

I have been to Twin Lakes camp ground several times. I'm more of the traditional camper (tent and a sleeping bag). I think the bathroom (with a real toilet) is a luxury :)...the fact that they have paid showers with warm water is also a luxury...given that, I think this camp ground is ideal for people who want to enjoy...

Made Reservations for tent camping with water and electricity for extension cords. All sites plugs have been removed. RV 220 only. Since I'm disabled I need a golf cart to make it to the bathroom. Manager never came in until after 2:00pm. Never returned my phone calls. Showers will hurt you like needles. No toilet paper so bring your own.... More

Not a bad area anywhere, lake, forest, either are gorgeous! Hiking, shopping, relaxing, site seeing -- we love it! Good for dogs too. Hard to get in, sometimes but worth it! We loved kayaking, exploring the waterfall, and all the hikes close by.

We were only here for one night, in site 46b. But, the area was incredible. You could view the lake from our campsite. The campground backs up to a mountain side. There are lots of great, tree filled sites , and a very well stocked camp store. This was in Inyo National Forest and the most beautiful site. The Mammoth... More

We have camped here for thirty five years. Two things have changed: predominantly RV, and the reservation system. Imperative you reserve six months in advance. Use ReserveAmerica.com. Easy to use site. Quiet hours 6am to 10pm. Tent users may not be happy with the generator use. We use ours sparingly, but others more so. Now that being said, this area... More

Just returned from a tent camping trip at Twin Lakes. Our last trip to Twin Lakes for camping was 8 years ago. 8 years ago camping was reservations not accepted. Today reservations are required to guarantee a site. 8 years ago, arriving on a Thursday morning meant you had your pick of sites. Today, sites are only open for a... More

The best camping vacation I've had so far. We spent the whole week at this camp ground & loved every day of it. Beautiful scenery all around you. You can bike, hike, & fish down at lake. The bathrooms are kept up on regularly. The camp host up on the upper campgrounds were so nice. I look forward to next... More

So for my first time camping, I didn't know what to expect. It was great. Right off the start. I got to the camp ground early to get a first come- first serve spot. Luckily I got # 73 right by the restrooms. The store is not that far out and the lake also. Ronnie and Jim the Camp Ground... More

Most of all the other comments are untrue. First of all the showers don't take 5 dollars a person. They take quarters for 5 minutes. But make sure to always have jackets and to have mosquito spray. It gets pretty warm in the daytime but can get cold in the night during summer time. I suggest you go rafting in... More

Connie F, Public Relations Manager at Twin Lakes Campground, responded to this review

Thank you for your review, however, I believe you are speaking of the Twin Lakes in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest outside of Bridgeport, with your reference to the upper and lower lakes. This page is for the Twin Lakes in the Inyo National Forest outside of Mammoth Lakes. This is a common confusion, but glad you had a nice camping... More
