Convict Lake Campground – Mammoth Lake, CA

Campground and RV Park Reviews |

If fishing for trout is your thing, Convict Lake Campground (National Park) is worth a try. They have dry camping, flush toilets, and drinking water is available. There is also a little store in the area, and rental cabins.

Each site has a bear box but we saw no bear unfortunately. This is a very popular campground and during the summer reservations are really smart as it’s a long drive from anywhere. The photo is from our site, we had this little brook to lull us to sleep. We had site 53 which is long and level. Not all sites are, most are for tenting and some are just plain steep. There are some handicapped sites.


  1. Up until about 4 years ago, my family (which are actually 3 seperate families) had been camping here for nearly every year for 30 years. This in my opinion is the best lake in the Sierras. We stopped coming here because, in my opinion the camp host is mean. We now go to Four Jeffery about a 1/2 hour above Bishop. Convict Lake is Beautiful. But we will never again camp here due to the unsavory camp hosts.
