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.
The vibe at Leavitt Meadows Campground
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!
