ROCK CREEK (SIERRA NATL FORES)
OVERVIEW Rock Creek Campground will be closed the entire 2020 - 2022 camping season due to a massive hazard tree removal. Rock Creek Campground sits on a large, sandy flat under a grove of oak, pine and cedar trees. The sites are divided into three sections, with Rock Creek running through the middle. One section of the camp sits nearest the access road; the other two sections can be reached via a bridge over Rock Creek. On this side, the largest section is located in closest to the swimming holes and rock water slide in the area. RECREATION Swimming holes can be found along the creek, and the campground's proximity to Mammoth Pool Reservoir provides even more recreational activities, including fishing, boating and hiking. FACILITIES Each campsite has a picnic table and campfire ring with grill. Parking spurs are paved and dirt-surfaced. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. Supplies can be purchased at Wagner's Mammoth Pool Resort. NATURAL FEATURES The Sierra National Forest, located on the western slope of the central Sierra Nevada, is known for its spectacular mountain scenery and abundant natural resources. The terrain includes rolling, oak-covered foothills, heavily forested middle elevation slopes and the starkly beautiful alpine landscape of the High Sierra. Rock Creek Campground is located close to Mammoth Pool Reservoir near the Ansel Adams Wilderness. This area is known for its jagged peaks, including 13,157-foot Mt. Ritter, and numerous lakes and streams. NEARBY ATTRACTIONS The campground is located off the Sierra Vista Scenic Byway, an 83-mile driving route with views of some of the Sierra National Forest's most striking landmarks.
