John Muir Trail: Camping at Bighorn Plateau

Bighorn Plateau - Search Nearby - Added by Kristen Bor

This campsite is located at mile 196 of the John Muir Trail.

Another rare but welcomed flat open space along the JMT. The night sky here will blow you away so if you're a photographer this is a great opportunity to capture the incredibel Sierra night sky. Do be careful about camping in the open space in regards to weather. A thunderstorm in this area could not only be very unpleasant but also dangerous.
