  4. Is there a campsite by the creek.

    • Hi Lochlan,
      There are actually no campsites right next to the creek at Lone Pine campground, but the closet ones are 1, 3, 13, 14, 17 and 20. You can click on the Campground Map button to get an idea of where the campsites are in relation to the creek.

  5. Sharon Gregory says:

    Are the bathrooms flushing toilets an running water for washing hands?

    • Hi Sharon,
      The bathrooms at Lone Pine campgrounds are vault/pit toilets. The bathrooms do not have running water, but there are water spigots located at a few locations throughout the campground.
