Overview

Recreation

The Mammoth Lakes area has much to keep campers busy. The majestic scenery and challenging trails are an obvious draw for hikers, mountain bikers and off-road vehicle enthusiasts. The eastern Sierras are known for their exceptional trout fishing, and several creeks and lakes are within a short drive from the campground.

Campers enjoy visiting the nearby visitor center and learning about the area, or taking a paved walking and bicycling trail to adjacent campgrounds, as well as Shady Rest Town Park and the town of Mammoth Lakes.

Facilities

Nine group sites are set up around one large loop at the end of New Shady Rest Campground. The facility provides flush toilets, picnic tables, campfire rings and trash bins. Firewood can be purchased on-site. The nearest dump station and showers are within a few miles.

Natural Features

The campsites are located under the shady canopy of a mature Jeffery pine forest at an elevation of 7,800 feet. Many species of wildlife call the mountains home, such as black bear, mountain lions, mule deer, pine marten, pika and numerous fish and birds.

Nearby Attractions

For campers interested in local events, the Mammoth Lakes Jazz Jubilee is hosted in Mammoth annually in mid-July. Several other events and amenities are available in town.

Many great day trips for sightseers are available in the area, such as Yosemite National Park, Mono Basin and Devils Postpile National Monument.
