Sherwin has become a favorite campsite in Mammoth; we go every year at least once. We enjoy Sherwin due to its proximity to the Village and that it is still peaceful. Most sites at Sherwin are walk-ups so if you bring a lot of supplies camping this might not be your spot. Also this campground does not have showers available; and if you go during motocross weekend be prepared for more traffic near this campground and a few rumbling engines driving by. However, you can fish at the creeks right in your campsites; and if you find yourself partaking in the events the Village puts on or venturing to the top of mountain this is the ideal campsite.

Great campground, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the town. There are two ways to get into the campground, both involving partial unpaved road. If you are coming from Bishop, take my advice and don't follow the google map directions (turning from the highway). Go into town, make a left on the road with the shell station/rite aid on the corners, make another left onto Sherwin Creek Rd. 3.5 miles unpaved vs. 1 mile unpaved. You're welcome.
We stayed in a tent site (site #1). It was spacious and adjacent to the parking area. Restrooms and water nearby. We booked our site online which can be hit or miss, but we were very happy with our selection. We weren't on the creek (site #7, I believe is right up next to it) but you could hear it
