Situated nearby the base of the mighty Mount Whitney, Lone Pine Campground offers an abundance of outdoor activities surrounded by brilliant vistas, desert wildflowers, and vast, expansive landscapes. The campground itself is guarded by sagebrush and sits along the shores of Lone Pine Creek. Frequented mainly by RVs, there are limited tent-only sites and all of which offer little privacy. But hey, just think of all the new likeminded friends you’ll make! The sites offer easy access to trails including John Muir Wilderness, Mount Whitney, and Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park! Need some last minute provisions? Throw those worries out the window--there’s a shop just outside the grounds.

The Alabama Hills/Lone Pine are a great location to view the Leonid Meteor Showers in mid November.

Beautiful sunrises in the Lone Pine area.

Great campground, very clean. Amazing views from every site. Only $5 per night. Can be very windy, we switched from our tall tent to our short one. Amazing night sky. Close to town.

Spectacular sunsets! Very hot - the "walk-in" sites are the least crowded - typically not full even if it says sold out. Theses sites are also close to the river so you can hear the water and even get cooled off!

Site in the walk-in area as viewed from parking. Restrooms at parking,  too! Walk-in area. Trail in back of campground. Lots of rabbits! Trail on the crest behind campground.
