    We are thinking of coming up to the Campgrounds this Fri, Sat, Nov. 9 and 10. Is there still fishing available.

    1. Camp Ranger says:

      Hi Donald,

      Fishing is available at Tuttle Creek campground, but we recommend contacting the local sporting goods store in Lone Pine for conditions. Lone Pine Sporting Goods should be able to provide you with good information. Their number: 760-876-5365
