Pleasant Valley Pit Campground has 75 single-family campsites located in an old gravel quarry about 8 miles from Bishop, CA.  All campsites are first-come, first-serve. Most are quite large with a lot of room between neighbors.  About half of the campsite are up on a ridge and the other half down in the pit. All have great views of the Sierra mountains and spectacular starry nights.

Amenities at the BLM campground include vault toilets, a book share library and trash collection. Water is not available. Campsites can accommodate tents, trailers and RVs. Each site also has a table, fire ring and grill. Some sites also have lantern posts. Firewood can also be purchased from the camp host.

The campground is a popular base to visit nearby Happy & Sad Boulders Climbing Area (off Chalk Bluff Road), as well as Buttermilks (west of Bishop). Other activities include hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, fishing, picnicking and wildlife viewing.
