This is probably the best campground in Mammoth Lakes. Located a short drive north of the Village, the campground is nestled next to Tamarack on the lake. Tamarack has a restaurant, bar, bike rentals and cabins.
Twin Lakes has a convenience store, showers ($4.00 per shower) and plenty of flush toilets and running water basins. These bathrooms were spotless. Bear lockers are at each campsite and must be used. This is "bear country".
All campsites have fire pits and picnic tables and large evergreens and shade. This is a great place for campers, trailers and tents. Bring wash tubs for your dishes. Running water is available but no sinks.
The Mammoth Trolley makes frequent stops to the campsite and has bike racks too. And it's free!
Reservation tip: www.Recreation.gov. If you are unable to get a reservation, keep checking back, frequently, and you will more than likely find your dates. People often cancel but inventory does not last long. I recommend checking back hourly.
