This is a forrest service camp. I was in the lower (fisherman's campground). The roads are asphalt and dirt. The turnarounds are extremely narrow. The spot I was in was listed as a 35 foot space. I could barely fit in my 25 foot travel trailer. The spot was broken asphalt and sloped steeply to the rear. It was necessary to chock all 4 wheels to prevent the trailer from sliding down the hill. To walk around my trailer you had to step off the pad and avoid stopping on the brush. It was very difficult to park my truck at the site. This is a beautiful spot with fantastic views; right next to a creek. This would be a great campground for small RV's or short tow vehicles. My overall length (truck and trailer is 49 feet); this was too long for all but a few sites. We camped at Gray's Meadow (upper) in a Travel Trailer.

This is a forest service campground with few facilities. About half the sites have a great view of the Owens valley in direction of Lone Pine, half are closer to the creek and have shade. The Gray's Meadow (lower) campground is tiny but can accommodate trailers and has a few sites with shade and view. Verizon cell reception in both campgrounds is possible. I got 3G but no bars with just my phone making things very slow, with external antenna it's quite OK. We camped at Gray's Meadow (upper) in a Travel Trailer.

This is a Forest Service campground with shaded sites near the creek and upper sites with a spectacular view of the Owens Valley. Most sites are small, but there are a few big enough for a 30 -- 40 ft. motor home We camped at Gray's Meadow (upper) in a Travel Trailer.
