Let’s be real here—Big Meadow Campground is where it’s at. Even the name itself conjures up the dreamy beauty of this larger yet chilled out camping spot. Just a stone’s throw from California’s infamous Pacific Crest trail, campers looking for something more low-key can explore down the nearby hiking trails to a few postcard-worthy waterfalls. Big Meadow is one of Inyo Forest’s most popular spots, but lucky for us campsites still are secluded enough to feel like part of the great outdoors.
