Big Meadow Campground is a scenic, peaceful campground located in a gorgeous forest, halfway between Bishop and Mammoth Lakes.

Big Meadow Campground is a small, serene site in Inyo National Forest. Big Meadow is in a great location for fishing and hiking enthusiasts. The sound of the babbling creek that flows directly next to the campground will lull you into complete tranquility. 

The campground operates on a first come, first serve basis and is generally open from May - October, weather dependent. The fee is $25 per night. Dogs are allowed at the campground if kept on leash. The campground provides drinking water and bathrooms, and each site is equipped with a picnic table and fire ring.
