  • This is a wonderful campground if you love the night sky and the sound of the wind in the trees, and are OK with a no-frills camping situation. There is no water, I mean NO water less than an hour dri...  more »

  • Forest located on the East face of the "High Sierra". Divided into four districts, all full of natural attractions, such as: Mount Whitney, Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, Mono Lake and Devils Postpile.

  • Great service, ranger was very cheerful and patient. Showed an enlarged map with areas to camp on the wall. No free maps available (unlike Mammoth Lakes). Outside is a place to fill water.
  • It's hard to rate the entire National Forest at once, but my experiences in the eastern Sierra are always memorable. The transition from high desert to alpine peaks is breathtaking! My favorite destination is Mt Whitney, but I've only snagged the permits once. The hike was tough but well worth the effort. Not too many people can say they've summited the tallest mountain in the Continental USA!
  • One of my favorite places to be in all of California, the Inyo National Forest is an underdog in forest game, but has so much to offer. The peaks, lakes and wilderness are unlike any other place.
  • Rangers are very helpful. Could move with a little more urgency though, especially when there is a long line. MY LANDS! Bought my son a T-shirt and it was $19 bucks!!! Nonprofit??? Yeah right!
  • This is a beautiful valley! I had the opportunity to climb Mt. Whitney and it was spectacular! If you're ever in the area and want a good challenge, do the mountaineers route of Mt. Whitney.
