OverviewAgnew 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
