The vibe at Onion Valley Campground
Drop some Onion Valley Campground knowledge on us.
Definitely not recommended for RVs or Trailers...not only because the road to the campground is an extreme grade, the campground loop and sites are just not set up for for RVs or trailers. Great place however for tent camping. Beautiful setting. Site 8 is +
It's a really cool drive up to Onion Valley Campground. The elevation gained is very impressive. The campground is usually booked out pretty far in advance. We went up the night to help acclimate with the elevation before a hike to Kearsarge Pass/Lakes (11,700ft)- we'd be carrying heavy packs so thought it'd smart. It was late September, so it was pretty cold up there at night ~35F so bundle up. Once the sun shows up, its plenty warm enough for long-sleeves. Facilities are kept very clean so that's a plus. The drive down is equally impressive- make sure you're brakes are decent:)
In years of heavy snowfall, water pipes and/or reservoirs may be damaged, so call ahead about water availability. Also, if Onion Valley is full, Upper and Lower Grays Meadows are about a 30 minute drive down the mountain, with good views and a short drive to all of the activities that Onion Valley has.
