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.
In accordance with standard industry practices, Inyo Recreation will assess an additional vehicle fee for the ''second vehicle'' in each single family campsite, and on the ''third and fourth vehicle'' in any double family campsite, provided these vehicles are not joined to the first vehicle by a hitch and towed onto the site. In the case of motorcycles, the first two are considered one vehicle, and the third and fourth motorcycle are also considered one vehicle. No additional vehicle fees are collected for bicycles.
Fire Restrictions: Fire restrictions may be imposed at any time due to hot, dry weather conditions, at which time campfires and charcoal fires may not be allowed. For current fire conditions or weather closures contact the Mammoth Lakes Visitor Center, (760) 924-5500, or the Mono Lakes Visitor Center, (760) 647-3044.
Refunds: Refund requests made through www.recreation.gov will be charged a $10 processing fee. This fee is retained by the reservation service contractor along with the non-refundable reservation fee. All requests for the return of the non-refundable reservation fee and the cancellation fee will be declined by the campground concessionaire as they did not receive these fees (these are the fees retained by the reservation contractor, a different entity).

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.
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.
Many great day trips for sightseers are available in the area, such as Yosemite National Park, Mono Basin and Devils Postpile National Monument.
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.
Campers enjoy visiting the nearby visitor center and learning about the area, or taking a paved walking and bicycling trail to adjacent campgrounds, as well as Shady Rest Town Park and the town of Mammoth Lakes.
