OverviewPine Glen is a group camping facility located in the eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains, within walking distance of the full-service community of Mammoth Lakes, California. Popular for large families and other groups of up to 15 or 30 people, the campground has access to a variety of activities, from fishing and mountain biking to hiking and photography, near some of the most spectacular scenery in the Sierras.
The campsites are located under the shady canopy of a mature Jeffery pine forest at an elevation of 7,800 feet. Many species of wildlife call the mountains home, such as black bear, mountain lions, mule deer, pine marten, pika and numerous fish and birds.
The Mammoth Lakes area has much to keep campers busy. The majestic scenery and challenging trails are an obvious draw for hikers, mountain bikers and off-road vehicle enthusiasts. The eastern Sierras are known for their exceptional trout fishing, and several creeks and lakes are within a short drive from the campground.
Nine group sites are set up around one large loop at the end of New Shady Rest Campground. The facility provides flush toilets, picnic tables, campfire rings and trash bins. Firewood can be purchased on-site. The nearest dump station and showers are within a few miles.
For campers interested in local events, the Mammoth Lakes Jazz Jubilee is hosted in Mammoth annually in mid-July. Several other events and amenities are available in town.
