  1. Donald Watson says:

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

    • 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

  2. Morgan demo says:

    Is the group campsite still available for this upcoming weekend? (17th-19th). If so, how can I reserve?

    • Hi Morgan,
      Tuttle Creek Campground offers 83 single-family campsites all with spectacular views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and Owen’s Valley. All of the 83 individual campsites are first-come, first-served. There is also one group campsite available. It can be reserved by calling the Bureau of Land Management office at 760 872-5000. 

  3. when are the best times to come camping before thanksgiving

  4. lochlan says:

    Are there campsites that are hidden or mildly secluded from the other campsites.

    • Hi Lochlan,
      There isn’t much vegetation in between Tuttle Creek campsites – it’s pretty open out there. Probably the most secluded campsites (with room in between others) include 24-28 and 51-55.

  5. How does the group campsite compare to the other sites as far as view and vegetation?

    • Hi William,
      I’d say the view and vegetation from the group campsite is almost the same as from the single-family campsites at Tuttle Creek . . . really nice view!

  6. It says recommended rv length 30ft or less.. But some sites look very big.. Would I be able to fit my 40 ft hauler in some of the sites?
