Due to heavy winter snowfall, many campgrounds in the Eastern Sierra may open later than usual this season. However, the Inyo National Forest has over a dozen campgrounds that will be open before fishing season opener – scheduled for this Saturday, April 30. The following campgrounds are set to open up by April 27: Lower Lee Vining, Oh! Ridge, June Lake, Gull Lake, Silver Lake, Convict Lake, French Camp, Tuff, Forks, Four Jeffrey, Big Trees, Intake Two, Upper and Lower Sage Flat. Campgrounds that are currently open include Grandview Campground in the White Mountains, Lower Grays Meadow and Lone Pine Campground.

Additional camping opportunities exist in Bureau of Land Management campgrounds and various Inyo County and private campgrounds in the Owens Valley.

All campgrounds on the Mammoth and Mono Lake Ranger Districts will remain the same price as last year with the exception of Oh! Ridge Campground near June Lake. Oh! Ridge is now 100 percent reservable, with the $25 per night fee covering the cost of a reservation. Campers will now be able to obtain a reservation at the campground if a site is available.
