Camp High Sierra

Public Campground in the Heart of Mammoth Lakes

Family Fun Since 1921

With a historic recreation lodge and views of the Sherwins, Mammoth Mountain and the Mammoth Crest, Camp High Sierra has been a family-favorite campground for almost 100 years. Ideally located between town and the Lakes Basin, this is the perfect basecamp for all your favorite Mammoth activities.

This unique campground offers tent camping sites, trailer/RV sites with hook ups, rustic bunk style cabins, and free hot showers for all registered guests.

Central to the campground is the historic recreational lodge where guests can gather to play board games, ping pong, hold carom competitions, or relax around the rock fire place with a good book.
