Located just off US 395 for easy access, this large campsite circling the 80-acre Diaz Lake is the perfect location to explore the nearby area or just relax and enjoy lakeside camping. It is only three miles from all the amenities in the town of Lone Pine, which is also home to the Lone Pine Museum of Western Film. Just up the road from Lone Pine are the Alabama Hills, where more than 400 movies have been shot, from classics such as "Gunga Din" to recent hits like "Ironman." Further up is Mt. Whitney, the tallest peak in the continental US. Ten miles north on US 395 is the Manzanar Japanese American Internment Camp, which is now a National Historic Site. The campsite features fishing, boating, waterskiing, a playground for the youngsters and spectacular mountain scenery, with plenty of room for everything from large RVs to tent campers. Surrounding public lands offer hunting, hiking, climbing, biking and touring on ATVs down dirt roads. Potable water is also available and firewood is for sale onsite.
