We’re fans of that old saying “the more the merrier”, especially when it comes to group camping. So get your squad together, whether it’s a college reunion gathering, a bunch of your (cool) coworkers, or the people from that book club you joined forever ago and kinda sorta forgot to go to the past few meetings. At $70 a night, this place is a steal for a group. Whether you’re staying at a campsite or in a cabin, you’ll be decked out with firewood, fire grates, piped water, and a restroom. The area is known to have a high level of bear activity, so be sure to store all your food in the provided bear box; you don’t want an unexpected furry friend showing up to the party.

I've gotten lucky finding a spot the night of both times visiting Whitney Portal, but wouldn't recommend that method as it books up here fast! Try and book beforehand.

My friends and I scored permits to hike Mount Whitney but, unfortunately, this campsite was already filled up. LUCKILY, they offer two first come, first serve sites! When we got up there on a Thursday night, the easy access first come loop was full but the Ravine first come, first serve site had spots. It is a walk in site so you will have to maneuver bringing in your gear. But, it's clean with plenty of bear boxes (use them, we had a bear trying to break into that thing every night) and a beautiful river right next to us. The only downside is that the sites are super close to each other.
But, perfect launch point if you have a day pass to hike whitney!
