Big Pine Creek Campground has 29 single-family campsites located along Big Pine Creek and in view of the Palisade range in the eastern Sierra Nevada. Trails from the campground lead to the largest and southern most glaciers in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The campsites can accommodate tents and small trailers/RVs. The campground sits at 7,600 feet elevation and has drinking water and vault toilets. Group camping is available. Firewood is also for sale at the campground. A general store is within a mile from the campground.

Above the campground in Big Pine Canyon, the creek flows into a series of impressive glacial lakes in the North Fork Basin. These turquoise lakes sit at the eastern base of the steep Sierra Nevada at around 10,000 feet elevation. The Palisade Crest rises more than 14,000 feet.

In addition to incredible hiking, there’s also great fishing in the creek. And you can’t beat the stargazing and wildlife viewing.

Other campgrounds in the area include Upper Sage Flat and Sage Flat.
