This is a small little maintained campground about 2 miles north of Independence. The electrical grid within the campground is in need of repair and has been turned off. A tribe member mentioned that they will need to raise funds in order to repair the electrical grid but does not know when that will happen. Almost all of the sites have water and 8 sites have sewer. The location of the water spigot and sewer are different at each location. There is a dump station to the right of the casino and is free if you stay in the campground. Otherwise it will cost $10. The outer loop road has recently been re-paved. The interior road is asphalt. Some sites are on packed gravel, others on loose dirt while others have a combination of both. All of the sites are not leveled, some more then others. The sites are not clearly marked. There is a camp host but we only saw her once during our 3 days there. The bathroom was not well maintained while we were there. There are 3 showers per gender. The campground does not have Wi-Fi but our Verizon air card and cell phone worked will here. There was very little noise from US-395. Within the travel plaza, there is a stand alone grille located to the left of the store. Ask the clerk for a menu. Within 24 mile radius you can visit Big Pine, Independence, Manazar, and Lone Pine. This campground is in a great location, too bad that it is not well maintained. Also note that the cost of fuel is the lowest we found traveling on US-395. Since there is no electricity, all sites now cost $10. Given the price and location, we would come back here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a forest service campground with few facilities. About half the sites have a great view of the Owens valley in direction of Lone Pine, half are closer to the creek and have shade. The Gray's Meadow (lower) campground is tiny but can accommodate trailers and has a few sites with shade and view. Verizon cell reception in both campgrounds is possible. I got 3G but no bars with just my phone making things very slow, with external antenna it's quite OK. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This is a Forest Service campground with shaded sites near the creek and upper sites with a spectacular view of the Owens Valley. Most sites are small, but there are a few big enough for a 30 -- 40 ft. motor home We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
