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

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

We were 6 of us here in two tents. The place was set up well with sites having easy access to well maintained restrooms. There was a hailstorm and it was freezing cold, the $7 Firewood at the Camp Hosts was really useful to us at night and in the morning. The place itself is really pretty. You can hear... More

Our family of four plus my sister visited this campground in late August 2014. We were NOT prepared for the cold. At night it went below 40, and in the early morning it is not much warmer. Water froze on the table as I tried to make coffee. Provided you prepare accordingly, you will love this campground. We stayed at... More

This was my first trip to Yosemite and to Twin Lakes Campground (TWC). Let's just say I was all smiles all the time on this adventure! We had spot #064 with an RV and it was lovely. I appreciate how TWC has many offerings to suit your needs. For example, I don't want to see other campers when I'm sitting... More

We have been camping at Twin Lakes campgrounds for the last 15 years. We really like the location since it within 5 minutes from town with plenty of restaurants and shops. The campgrounds are beautiful depending on which site you stay in you have a view of the lake and the waterfall. Beware of Bears..we have on occasion seen bears... More
