I loved this beautiful campground! Beautiful lakes with plenty of trails to explore. There were plenty of amenities and the campground hosts were pleasant and helpful! The store had everything you would need. They sold wood if you needed it. Just a short hike up the side of the hill leads to spectacular views! They offer cabins as well as... More

Nice campsites that offer a picnic table, bear locker, and a fire ring. Most sites have a dirt or gravel driveways. Each loop has water spickets and flush bathrooms. Beautiful forrest setting. For RV campers: Fill up with potable water by the campground host just before the bridge that separates Upper Twin Campground from Lower Twin Campground. The campground host... More

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
