Dry/dispersed camping at it's best! The views are excellent! Pick out a spot that has been previously camped at, and enjoy. The site of many old cowboy western films, plus one of my favorites......."Tremors"! To get to Alabama Hills,Take Whitney Portal Road at traffic light in Lone Pine, drive 2.5 miles to Movie Road, turn right, and when you get off of the pavement, start looking for a camping spot. We drove about 1.5 miles on Movie road, turned left at the "Y" for our camping spot. Movie road and some of side roads are dusty and bumpy, so use caution. We camped at Alabama Hills Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Lots of hiking, may see some rock climbers on the week-end. Eat breakfast at Alabama Hills Café. Visit the Lone Pine Film History Museum.

Make sure you have maps of the area.

This is actually free camping but the website requires and amount. The overall setting of Alabama Hills is overwhelming. Amazing rock formations with Mt Whitney towering in the background. Very dark at night and very quiet. Sites can be close together or very widely spaced. We selected a long pull thru that was surrounded by huge rocks. Anyone driving by wouldn't have been able to detect our 45 foot motorhome. The large sites are few and far between so it's a game of chance for bigger rigs. Leveling appears to be an issue at all sites. We did quite a lot of jockeying and settled on sort of level. The weather was perfect in April but we were told it does get hot in the summer. The 9 rating is due to lack of any facilities, cell coverage and lots of dirt. Be prepared for sweeping if that bothers you! We would most definitely return. We camped at Alabama Hills Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you have a tow, it's best to park in town and drive around and find a spot. It's extremely dusty. There are lots of hidden sites so take your time looking. April was very quiet and there were few campers. We couldn't actually see anyone else from our site.

We almost missed this jewel because the map here is wrong. Turn off of 395 due west onto Whitney Portal Road and head up the hill, into the Alabama Hills Recreational area. You will start to see the Alabama Hills, wondrous piles of rock, on either side. You will see a paved road off to your right in between the rocks called "Movie Flats". There's a big white stone there with a plaque containing information about the history of Alabama Hills. Turn right there and you can park anywhere 1.5 miles from where you first turned in throughout the park. It's all boondocking, no cell service and no Wi-Fi - but it is not to be missed and it's free. It is a magical, beautiful place, camping in among the rocks with the breathtaking view of the Sierra Nevada and Mt. Whitney. Big rigs or tent camping. Totally peaceful. Fantastic hiking or discovering by auto. The night/star photography was amazing. Would stay here forever if I could! We camped at Alabama Hills Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Note, this is dispersion camping and there is no charge. Located about 2 miles west of Lone Pine off Whitney Portal Road - on both sides of the road. One of the prettiest places we have ever camped at in our travel trailer. Scenes from over 400 movies have been shot here, so you most likely have seen it. I would camp here again.
