    Overview

    Overview

    Agnew Meadows Group Campground is located in the Reds Meadow Valley section of the eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains, just west of the full-service community of Mammoth Lakes, California. Popular with large families, this group camping facility provides access to some of the most spectacular wilderness in the Sierras and many outdoor activities such as horseback riding, fishing, hiking and photography.

    Devils Postpile National Monument and the famous Ansel Adams Wilderness are nearby, and a pack station with horseback riding tours and supplies is just down the road.

    Natural Features:

    The campground sits in a lodgepole pine forest surrounded by high mountain peaks, adjacent to creeks and a small lake. The elevation is 8,400 feet. Spring and early summer wildflower displays bring even more color to the landscape.

    Many species of wildlife call the mountains home, such as black bear, mountain lions, mule deer, pine marten, pika and numerous fish and birds.

    Recreation:

    This campground is a great base camp for hiking the area's many trails. Within a few miles, campers will find the High Trail, Shadow Creek Trail and River Trail, all open to hiking and horseback riding. Trailheads to the Ansel Adams Wilderness and Pacific Crest Trail are in the vicinity. Hikers are required to ride a shuttle to the trailheads.

    Fishing enthusiasts can try for trout in the many area lakes or the North Fork of the San Joaquin River.

    Facilities:

    This facility offers sites that can accommodate groups of up to 10 and 20 people. It is adjacent to the main Agnew Meadows Campground and Horse Camp. The road to the facility is narrow, single-lane and only open in summer.

    Nearby Attractions:

    The area is close to Devils Postpile National Monument and the Ansel Adams Wilderness. Both areas have trails, unparalleled photographic opportunities and are great day trips.

    Reds Meadow Pack Station and Resort has a general store and cafe. The trailhead for Rainbow Falls also begins near Reds Meadow.
