  1. Doug Moore says:

    French camp is awesome and the camp host Kevin is un matched in how he treats his guests

  2. Patty True says:

    Thinking of coming up in a few weeks. Can you tent camp on site #73?

  3. Is there a camp host on site?

  4. Stephanie says:

    By what campsites is/are the restrooms closest to?
    Thank you!

    • Hi Stephanie,
      We do know there are 5 restrooms with flush toilets at French Camp campground, and that they are located throughout the campground (one per loop area, with the except of the tent only camping loop). Unfortunately we’ve been unable to locate a campground map so we don’t have the info as to what sites are closest to each restroom.

  5. Kurt Radmacher says:

    I was camping with my 26 Ft toy hauler about 4 years ago and haven’t been back since. The camp sites are very hard to get in due to the many ROCKS which are placed in a way which can create a lot of damage to once equipment. I sustained damage to my trailer and to my truck which prompted me to look for alternative camp sites. We did however enjoy the time we spent at French Camp and the many rec possibility’s. We usually camp 10 to 14 days at a time in the Mammoth area twice a year.

  6. Thanks for the recommended tent sites. Do you know which are on the river???
    THANKS 🙂

  7. Robert & Olga Wilkinson says:

    French Camp is hidden gem. Due to fires, we had to cancel our Big Basin trip and rerouted to the Eastern Sierras for the week. Camp Hosts were awesome and very attentive to the campgrounds and made rounds regularly. We reserved 027 and were extremely happy with our time in camp. Enough space for 3 or more tents but is not level so beware of tent placement – perfect for RVs. Tons of birds and chipmunks/squirrels to keep you busy. Creek is next to the outbound road and sounds wonderful when resting and sleeping. Stars were out and bright. Will be coming back next year for certain.

  8. Is there a map showing where the restrooms are at French camp?

    • HI Derek,
      Unfortunately we’ve been unable to locate a French Camp Campground map. I do know there are 5 restrooms spaced out throughout the campground. One is by campsites 1, 85 and 86, another is by sites 14, 15 and 81, another one closer to site 75, another by site 37, and a 5th toward the entrance.

  9. Is the a place on site that I can get water for my trailer. I will be camping at French camp in June.

    • Hi Paula,
      French Camp has a dump station and water spigots throughout the campground. There’s also a potable water spigot over by the dump station. You should be able to fill up there, but I’m not positive about the policy.
