Family Fun Since 1921

Camp High Sierra has been providing Family Camping since 1921. Located in the heart of Mammoth Lakes, this unique campground offers tent camping sites, trailer/RV sites with hook ups, rustic bunk style cabins, and free hot showers for all registered guests.

Central to the campground is the historic Recreational Day Lodge.  For nearly 100 years, guests have gathered here to play board games, ping pong, hold carom competitions, or relax around the rock fire place with a good book.
