  1. My family and I discovered Mammoth in 1980 especially the ever so beautifully set campground Twin Lakes I would love to take pictures of the lake with the waterfall always in the background many things have changed the campgrounds are full congestion everything quitets down as the sun sets you can smell coffee n bacon frying in the mountain air have been going ever since

  2. itsmebeccalee@gmail.com says:

    Does anyone know when Twin Lakes campground will be open again?

  3. Kristen Aldrich says:

    It shows first come / first serve … what’s the probability of getting a spot Mon -Thursday ? Also what is the fire restrictions , can you have a camp fire ?

    • Hi Kristin,
      I’ll actually be camping there this Thursday through Tue. If I remember, I’ll check to see if any first-come first-serve campsites are available Sunday/Monday and try and let you know (posting here). With that said, the reservable sites have been sold out soon after it opened and through the summer. That tells me that the first-come, first-serve sites will be popular (even mid-week). I’d say your chances are no better than 50/50 at best that one would be available for a Monday arrival.

  4. Was planning on going camping with my family this weekend how early would we have to be there to try to get a first come first serve spot? Also my kids are 4,8 and 10 can they get in the water there ?

    • Hi Celina,
      I just returned from camping (Fri-Tu) at Twin Lakes campground.The first-come, first-serve campsites fill up very fast (weekend or midweek). There are usually 5-10 vehicles/campers in line by 8am each day waiting to enter and grab a first-come first-serve campsite as soon as someone leaves the site. I would get there no later than 8am your planned day of arrival. Friday arrivals will be very tough to get a site because most or already taken Thursday.

  5. Is it difficult to get a trailer to the upper campground area? Specifically site 85? Last year, I remember it looking narrow that way but we were down in the flats…

    • Hi Jen,

      You should be fine navigating your trailer in the upper section of Twin Lakes campground (to campsite #85). FYI – the driveway length is listed as 40 feet (maximum vehicle length is 30 feet), and you can have up to two vehicles (including tow vehicle) at the site.

  6. is there phone signal there at the camp? want to move home office to campsite!

  7. Hi,

    Im looking to come up either Friday or Saturday to camp for a couple nights this weekend but everything is first come first serve. Any idea on what day and best time to come to land a spot or if it’ll be crazy to land a spot will there be other possible campsites that might have space?

    Thanks in advance!

    • Hi Bardia,
      Most likely, all of Twin Lakes first-come, first-serve campsites will be taken by Thursday night – through Labor Day weekend. All reservable campsites are taken too. Sorry about that.

  8. Hi, how hard will it be to get a first come first serve campsite September 11 to 13th? What time would be best to arrive to improve the chance of getting a spot?

    • Hi Jenny,

      All reservable campsites at Twin Lakes are taken Sep 11-13, so this tells me it will be very popular that weekend . . . and probably each weekend until the campground closes for the winter. Your best bet would be to arrive Friday morning around 7-8am and check with with the camp host to see if any of the first-come, first-serve campers will be leaving. If so, you can get ask to get a site and/or get in line. Others will be there early on Friday as well.

  9. Timothy L. Barela says:

    if I arrive on Wednesday 9/9/20 what are the chances if getting a campsite.

    • I say your changes are very good to almost for sure with a September 9 (Wednesday) arrival that you will get a campsite at Twin Lakes campground. Have a great time!
