The campgrounds in the Mammoth Lakes Basin are all closed. Plowing is going to start in a week or so and the goal is to have them open by the 4th of July. But this is not guaranteed so please check before coming to camp. This update is from the Town of Mammoth Lakes….
– The Town is planning to begin clearing snow from Lake Mary Road and throughout the Lakes Basin on Monday, June 19, 2023. This activity is estimated to take approximately 5-7 days, pending the composition of the deep and dense snowpack.
– Once cleared, the road will open for USFS administrative, utility and contractor access to begin operations to safely reopen the Lakes Basin for permitted operators and summer visitation.
– The U.S. Forest Service – Inyo National Forest will determine the opening date for the Lakes Basin.
– The Town will provide regular updates to the public regarding the opening of the Lakes Basin.
