Devils Postpile Campground
Park Service Notice: "Due to winter storm and flood damage and prioritization of trail repairs including Rainbow Falls, the monument's 20 site campground is not anticipated to reopen in 2017." Devils Postpile Campground Update for 2017
Devils Postpile Campground is located within Devils Postpile National Monument, 12 miles west of Mammoth Lakes Village. The campground has 21 first-come, first-served sites. The B Loop, closest to the river, is designated for vehicles with a combined length not exceeding 20 feet. No generators are permitted in the B Loop. Tent camping is welcome. Campsites in the A Loop will accommodate RVs, trailers, and tents. Devils Postpile Campground is close to the upper reaches of the Middle Fork of the San Joaquin River. A pretty cascade tumbles over the rocks next to the campground. The campground usually fills on summer weekends and is busiest from late July through mid-August.
A narrow access road leads from Minaret Summit down to Devils Postpile Campground. While camping here drivers may bypass the Reds Meadow Shuttle Bus, but are still required to pay a $10 entrance fee. The shuttle only operates in summer.
