12 RV Parks near Independance, California

Enjoyed our 4 nights dry camping here, but the park could use a little attention by the county. We camped at Site 112 -the very far end of the park - and while the site was pretty clean the little beach and fishing area next door were very dirty. We picked up trash for a half-hour, but left the wads of toilet paper in plain sight in the bushes along the shore. This stuff had been here awhile... Day users were a mixed lot, but most campers were quiet & neat. Next time I would chose a spot back away from the lake; you can see the lake from pretty much every site. Fine views all around, close to town, (Lone Pine) and the water from spigots was tasty. Lots of sunshine for the solar panels, and Verizon MiFi was pretty good. Haven't seen anyone of authority, and we're still looking for the alleged dump station. Big rig friendly. We camped in a motorhome. - rmlarson

Diaz Lake was a stopover on our way south via US 395. This is a county park operated by Inyo County. No hook-ups. Popular lake. Lots of sites. Some sites in trees. We drove around the lake and had a spot overlooking the lake. Some wind came up. Was a good stopover spot. Probably busy on weekends. We were going to camp at a USFS site out of Lone Pine, but road construction sent us to Diaz Lake. - Al Z

What a find! OK, if you only stay at 10 10 fancy resorts, this is not for you as it is totally dry camp owned by Inyo County. But if you want an easy access for all size RVs in a gorgeous setting, it is wonderful. Camping is on the opposite side from the road, so the lake is on one side and the snow covered Sierras on the other, including Mt. Whitney. Most sites have picnic tables and you pay at a self service kiosk when you enter (cash or credit). Another county park near Lone Pine is Portage Joe which could handle a few large rigs. NFS Lone Pine is at a higher altitude (probably great in the summer but much colder in February) and not recommended for mid - large RVs. Tuttle Creek (BLM) is closed in winter. - BandD

Nice RV Park near Big Pine. Right on Hwy 395, but some sites are a ways back. Good services. After driving all day, We were looking forward to soaking our tired muscles in spa. The brochure they gave us said "winter hours 7a.m. To 8 p.m." We got ready walked over & pool/spa area was already closed at 7p. Saw the young man who checked us in and we asked him about closing time. He said we basically close when we're done. Not happy about that, but it is one of the better campgrounds in winter. - Daisy B

The gem is an oasis in the desert. The office is right up front as soon as you pull in, and check-in was fast and efficient. The park is big rig friendly with easy in and out access. The roads are paved and the sites are crushed rock. There is a western themed social area next to a kids' play area and a small store in the office. There's a very large pet run. Sites are wide and hook-ups are conveniently placed even if you pull all the way forward so you don't have to unhook. I would definitely return to this park - J rys

We stayed 3 nights in a 40 foot fifth wheel. Wish I could have stayed longer. This is a very large, well maintained, beautiful park in an excellent location in the Eastern Sierras. You will have a beautiful view of the mountains with easy access to Mt Whitey hiking and the Bristle Cone Pine forest. The staff were nice and friendly but the young lady who checked us in did not seem to understand RVs. I know...odd, but. So we were assigned to a "drive in" site which is really meant for Class As...as noted, we are in a fifth wheel. She said yes you can pull in and then disconnect. I reminded her that we were in a fifth wheel but she still didn't get it. Then I talked to another team member and he assured me that the utilities were in the middle of the spot and we could drag them under if we wanted. We always carry plenty of hoses and electric so that is what we did. I also thought that the site was very narrow. In their attempt to beautify they added trees, which is great, but then you have even less room on an already narrow site. If we were to fully extend our awnings we would have shaded our neighbors car and our steps were right on the line. Other sites were a bit wider. Wish we could have stayed longer as there is so much to do in this area. - Moe and Flo are on the go
