    Camping at it's best!

    Special Interest: BikingCampingHikingSports - Winter

    Inyo National Forest (Bishop, CA) offers a lot of activities, such as hiking, camping, mountain biking, and skiing.

    There are several campgrounds and cabins within Inyo National Forest. Dogs must be on leash within the campground and never leave them unattended. Additional rules can be found here.

    Backcountry camping is available, but you must have a permit for overnight trips and make sure you are in an area that allows for dispersed camping. We recommend purchasing a map at the visitor center. There is also a permit required for collecting firewood and to build a campfire. Mt. Whitney has two trailhead campgrounds, Outpost Camp and Trail Camp, but you must have an additional permit to hike Mt. Whitney Zone to get to these campgrounds.

    GPS Coordinates: 37.3625522, -118.4108989 Map

    Dogs need to be on leash or can follow verbal commands.
