The vibe at Whitney Portal Group Campground
Drop some Whitney Portal Group Campground knowledge on us.
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!
