Leavitt Meadows Campground sits among Jeffrey pines along the West Walker River. This campground is a great starting point for day hikes. Leavitt Meadows Trailhead leads to a trail along the river, and into lake-filled basins. The trail also leads to Tower Peak, a challenging trek that is popular with climbers.

Drop some Leavitt Meadows Campground knowledge on us.
This is an immaculate first come, first serve campground in the heart of Toiyabe thanks to the amazing Camp Host Dennis. The pit toilets are cleaned twice daily, and almost all sites have great privacy from trees and brush! The camp is on the side of the highway, however it sees very little traffic, and most sites are on the lower portion of the loop away from the road.
The camp sits on the beautiful West Walker River that has plenty of room for fishing, or river side lounging. There are plenty of hiking trails near by the camp, I would highly suggest hiking Leavitt Peak, the trailhead is at Sonora Pass.
Protip: Drive out to the Travertine Hot Springs near Bridgeport. The locals in the General Store are friendly and can direct you!
I camped here over the Fourth of July long weekend and was able to secure a spot. We arrived around ~3pm on Friday, July, 5th 2019 and there were three sites remaining. The last two sites were swooped around ~4:30pm.
I last camped here back in 2015. The camp is still in immaculate condition, and the camp hosts are still amazing!
Worst Campground ever. The camp host woman is obnoxious and rude., she will harass you all day long over the smallest of issues. I've camped here twice and both times there is some argument over money. The camp host woman will not drop it and will try and squeeze every fee she can dream up.
Several friends and I paid for two sites between us, all splitting the costs, this confused her and instead of just letting us pay for two separate sites she wanted us to pay additional fees for group sites and all sorts of wacky stuff. Coming by every hour with some new complaint. The power of hosting a campground has gone to her head.
Straight up, it just made camping there uncomfortable. I recommend going over to Sonora Bridge Campground.
