Lone Pine Creek Campground


Lone Pine Creek campground sits at an elevation of about 5,750 feet. It’s located just outside of the town of Lone Pine California between the Alabama Hills and Whitney Portal Campground. This beautiful campground in the high desert is surrounded with Cottonwood trees, Sage, and giant Granite boulders. Most of the campsites have stone ovens and barbeques. The loop around the campground is paved with asphalt and there are outhouses throughout the grounds that are cleaned regularly and maintained very well. Almost every campsite has it’s own stone circle fire pit and each is thoughtfully positioned to allow the maximum amount of kick-back space for an evening campfire. The setting sun provides an awesome silhouette view of Mount Whitney visible from most of the campsites. Because of the family setting of this campground it’s not uncommon to see children riding bikes, catching fish, and exploring the surroundings. There are 38 campsites in all each with it’s own paved parking apron. Water spigots can be located along side of the main loop and there are 8 total 5 of which are threaded. This campground is open from April 1st through October 31st and has a full time campground host to answer any of your questions and help make your camping experience a pleasant one. Firewood is available and can be purchased from the host or can be obtained at Slater Sporting Goods in the town of Lone Pine . If you plan to go on a hike the Lone Pine National Recreational Hiking Trailhead is located at the top end of the campground and offers an 11 mile hike through some beautiful backcountry. Be sure to bring along a camera so you can take advantage of the awesome views or capture the image of an occasional critter that may happen across the trail. Fishing Lone Pine creek is a great way to relax during your stay and the creek offers Brown, Rainbow and Brook Trout. The deep pools known to this part of Lone pine creek offer easy access to both the beginner or experienced angler. Above the campground the creek is a bit more challenging, but if you’re looking for Broun Trout action this is the best place to find it. Once you’ve stayed at this campground you’re sure to be back again and again. Be prepared to wear out your arm waving to fellow campers and the occasional passer-by. Don’t be surprised if you hear happy kids singing the “Smokey the Bear” theme song around an evening campfire, and don’t be afraid to join in.

  1. Hello! I know this is sort of off-topic however I needed
    to ask. Does running a well-established website such as yours require a lot of work?
    I am brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my journal daily.
