Big Bend Campground is a beautiful little campground located on the banks of Lee Vining Creek in the Inyo National Forest. This campground is first-come, first-serve and sees heavy use because of its location to one of the more popular fishing creeks in the Lee Vining area. It’s also about 15 miles from Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite National Park.

Big Bend Campground has 16 campsites and the best ones include 3, 5, 7, 10, 12 and 13. Campsite parking spurs range from about 20 feet to 30 feet. A few will accommodate a small RV or trailer. Each campsite has a table, fire ring, grill and food storage locker. The campground has vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection. Cell service is poor in the area.

Outdoor activities include fishing, hiking, biking, hunting, wildlife viewing, horseback riding, winter sports and picnicking.

Other nice campgrounds in the area include Moraine, Aspen (Aspen Grove), Ellery Lake Campground, Junction, Saddlebag Lake and Tioga Lake.

  1. Small, on a stream, campsites not crowded on each other. Bathrooms kept clean.
