This is a large, basic campground behind the Forest Service welcome center in Mammoth Lakes, California. There are no hook ups, although there is a dump station that you can use for an additional $7. The sites are large and mostly flat. They each have a fire pit and a picnic table. There are plenty of restrooms and garbage bins scattered throughout. The restrooms have running water, and while older, are extremely clean and well stocked with toilet paper. The park is "dog friendly" in that they allow dogs, and there seemed to be a lot of them. The park does not have available waste bags. We really enjoyed this park. Even though it's large and there were a lot of people, it was immaculately clean, both the sites and the bathrooms. The hosts were friendly and helpful. We were really impressed with the size of the sites as well. The only reason I gave a 9 instead of a 10 is that there aren't any showers. We camped at New Shady Rest in a Motorhome.

Had site #27 or #28? Large enough for my 37'MH and small toad in front. Great location in town close to all shops and eateries (McDonald's across street within walking distance). Quiet throughout the day and evening. Has lots of trees and gets real dark when the sun goes down. I was able to get a satellite signal and Verizon cell worked fine. Dump station at entry and water fill. Fairly well shaded and spaced well from other sites. I would and will return! We camped at New Shady Rest in a Motorhome.

This is a great campground in a pine forest close to Mammoth Lakes. Roads are very narrow and winding and most sites take a bit of maneuvering to park. Wood available at host sites. No showers but you can go across the street to another campground. Weather is cool in the evenings here even in summer, bring blankets! Tons to do in town from biking, hiking and fishing to eating and bar hopping. Plenty of grocery stores and gas stations. Just under 2 hours to Yosemite Park. Lots of places to hike and dog walk adjacent to most campsites. Overall campground is quiet and shady. USE THE BEAR BOXES, THERE REALLY ARE BEARS HERE! We camped at New Shady Rest in a Travel Trailer.

Very centrally located along main street: just behind the Visitor's Center. This was a friendly, and well maintained campground. Spaces were private and among pine trees. We camped at New Shady Rest in a Travel Trailer.

We loved this campsite so much we canceled Mammoth Lakes RV ( see review) and decided to dry camp here for 6 nights total. The Rangers were extremely friendly and accommodating. The spots are shady and big, lots of room for kids to run around and some terrific bike paths from the campground. We can't wait to go back to this campground. Perfect location, perfect atmosphere! One minor exception is that there are no showers available here. We camped at New Shady Rest in a Travel Trailer.

A beautiful forestry campground on the edge of the town of Mammoth Lakes. The campground is near many good restaurants, a large county park, bike trails, and shopping. Wonderful, helpful camp hosts. A tremendous amount of bird and animal life. No showers, but flush toilets, that are kept very clean. Not a good option for big rigs, but great for tent campers and small RVs. They do have a dump station. The rate is $9 for anyone holding a federal pass (Golden Age, etc.). We camped at New Shady Rest in a Truck Camper.
