Palisade Glacier Group Campground
Palisade Glacier Group Campground is along Big Pine Creek in the Inyo National Forest, 10 miles west of the town of Big Pine. The campground is between Clyde Glacier Group Campground and Upper Sage Flat Campground.
Visitors to the Big Pine Creek region enjoy beautiful mountain scenery with mature forests of pines, aspens, and cottonwoods. Big Pine Creek, which runs past the campground, is stocked annually with trout. Nearby trails lead up to the spectacular Big Pine Lakes and other destinations in the John Muir Wilderness. Mountaineers are drawn to the Palisades and other jagged peaks along the Sierra Crest.
Palisade Glacier Group Campground has 1 tents-only campsite for groups up to 20 people and 5 vehicles. The campsite is small and is bordered by Upper Sage Flat Campground, Clyde Glacier Group Camp, and the road. Nearby highway noise can be heard in the campground.
The reservation website lumps Palisade Glacier and Clyde Glacier group camps together on a single page titled Big Pine Canyon. The two camps are side-by-side along Big Pine Creek. Clyde Glacier is the nicer of the two.
