Sage Flat Campground Inyo National Forest California

Sage Flat Overview

Sage Flat 006

Sage Flat Campground has 28 single-family campsites along Big Pine Creek in the eastern Sierra Nevada mountains.  The campground is located a 7,400 feet and the campsites are set among tall Jeffrey Pine, aspen and cottonwood trees.  Sage Flat Campground has drinking water and vault toilets. Each campsite also has a table, fire ring, grill and food storage locker.

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 and backpacking, there’s also great fishing in the creek. And you can’t beat the stargazing and wildlife viewing.

Other campgrounds in the area include Big Pine Creek and Upper Sage Flat campground.
