“Great campsite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

My son, brother, and brothers girlfriend stayed here July 22 to 23 to climb Whitney. Host was very friendly and kept eye on grounds. Bad storms washed only road in/out of campground overnight. They did a fantastic job of rebuilding the washed out road I the morning so cars could get in and out. Bathrooms very clean and neat. They stayed at campsite number one which looked like the best one to me.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

I have stayed at this particular campground for the past couple of years for the annual pilgrimage to Manzanar (WWII Japanese American Internment Camp). It's a great place to stay, plenty of parking and room for tents and gear. Bathrooms are very clean and taken care of every hour. The host here is very diligent with the upkeep of the camp and is there to make sure everything is running smoothly. There is a little creek running on the backside of the campground that is great for trout fishing. The campground itself is very easy to access, when you enter the city Lone Pine, you make a left at the only stop light in the city, which is Whitney Portal. You drive up roughly 7 miles and you're here. Great hiking all around the area and everyone is respectful making our trips very enjoyable. Definitely worth staying here!

If it's hot in Owens Valley, you'll be hot here too. Most of the sites are very open and exposed and, well, hot. That being said, the host was very friendly, the sites were well groomed and appointed (picnic table, fire pit, parking) and the bathrooms were clean. The views, well, the cannot be beat! I was staying here as a base camp for a long day hike in the area so I didn't spend much time at the site. Note - the crickets were SO LOUD that you're one who needs white noise to sleep, you'll do great here! If you're road tripping it and need a clean, friendly campground, give this place a try. I'll return someday for sure.

This place defies logic and expectation. You drive up this dirt track destination Mt Whitney; apparently there's a campground here somewhere and just as you think things have gone seriously wrong with the GPS - there it is !! a little oasis in the desert... it's Lone Pine Campground ! Gosh what a setting and enough campsite comfort to make life civil. This was one of the most spectacular settings we encountered in a long RV trip around the western USA and remember it fondly. (I really don't think Seb O is talking about the same place here....)
