This campground is about 10 min off 395 south of the town of Mammoth. There are 75 large campsites and all easy to maneuver. We were there just before the 4th of July and there were plenty of open spaces. Many RVs and 5th wheels had multiple EZ up set up canopies to get out of the hot sun and wind. There are no trees anywhere close. Some campsites are close to the river but river access is very close and easy. If you are there to fish, this is the place to be. There is also a lot of HOV campers, plenty of space to roam. We didn't have a car with our RV and there is nothing close to this campsite. It is about 15 minutes to down town mammoth where there are many shops, restaurants and a Vons in town. The bathrooms and showers were very clean and the staff in the office was very nice. Bring Cash to pay as they do not have the ability to use a credit card. There was a lot of wind in the afternoon and evening, we positioned our RV to try to cut the wind but it only made a slight difference. There is water available to fill your tanks, but you have to go across 395 to dump at Convict lake to dump. While this was an okay place to camp, there are cheaper options around and closer to town with more amenities and on lakes. We enjoyed our stay but would probably camp closer in town or at one of the many lakes mammoth has to offer next time. Beautiful views and amazing sunsets! We camped at Brown's Owens River Campground in a Motorhome.

Great dry camping campground on the Owns River. Huge sites and amazing views. If you want trees stay away. If you want amazing views camp here. You have to experience it to appreciate this campground. May not be for everyone, but it is for us and we have been coming every Labor Day Weekend for over ten years. Mammoth has too many things to do and we never get to do them all. We camped at Brown's Owens River Campground in a Motorhome.

Have stayed at Brown's many times. This is strictly for those who like to fish. Dry camping with store, grill, showers, restrooms, fish cleaning sink and laundry. All very basic but gets the job done very well. Fishing was good for rainbows but no spawning browns right up until the campground closed for the season on 9/30. Personnel are very friendly. I will definitely be back next season. We camped at Brown's Owens River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We have been coming here for years and always enjoy our stay. This last week was no exception. This is a great park with really nice people staffing it. Hostess is really nice, helpful and a very funny lady. She makes you feel at home the minute you arrive. If there is one negative, it is that there doesn't seem to be any restriction for dogs. They run wild all over the park. The owners take advantage of this to let their pets do what they want, where they want. This past week we were next to a three families with 6 dogs. Everytime we went outside these "large" dogs were on us. Not only us but everyone around us. The people were nice but didn't control them even after we hinted about the problem. Nothing worse than stepping out of your rig into dog excrement. Anywho, that's the only complaint that I have. Looking forward to visiting soon. We camped at Brown's Owens River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I have been coming to this park for 50 years. It is an awesome place if you like to fish or just like to stare at some of the most beautiful mountain scenery in the world. Stargazing is beyond compare. It is situated in the middle of the Long Valley Caldera on the upper Owens River at 7000' elevation. There are no trees in this area, just awesome 360 degree views of the mountains. If you like to catch trout, it's the best, Rainbows and German Browns. Check the sport fishing regulations for special fishing regulations at different times of the year. They have a well equipped store, friendly helpful staff (Rhonda), fish cleaning and freezing facilities and trailer storage during their open season 4/25-9/30. We camped at Brown's Owens River Campground in a Travel Trailer.
