    Overview

    Overview

    Mammoth Pool Campground is located half a mile from the recreation area at Mammoth Pool Reservoir. This primitive campground winds through a stand of Ponderosa pine and cedar trees along the San Joaquin River in the midst of a mountainous landscape.

    Natural Features:

    The Sierra National Forest, located on the western slope of the central Sierra Nevada, is known for its spectacular mountain scenery and abundant natural resources. The terrain includes rolling, oak-covered foothills, heavily forested middle elevation slopes and the starkly beautiful alpine landscape of the High Sierra.

    Mammoth Pool Campground is located near the Ansel Adams Wilderness, known for its jagged peaks, including 13,157-foot Mt. Ritter, and numerous lakes and streams.

    Recreation:

    Mammoth Pool Reservoir offers a variety of recreational activities, including fishing, boating, hiking and wildlife viewing. A boat ramp is available at the reservoir.

    Hikers can access the nearby French Trail, a 12.7-mile foot trail that provides access to the Ansel Adams Wilderness.

    Facilities:

    Each campsite has a picnic table, grill and campfire ring. Vault toilets are provided, but campers must bring drinking water.

    Campers will find a pay phone, gas and camping supplies at nearby Wagner's Mammoth Pool Resort.

    Nearby Attractions:

    A popular pastime in the area is to take a drive on the 83-mile Sierra Vista Scenic Byway.
