Camping Near Bishop

Camping in the Bishop area brings back childhood memories of roasting marshmallows over an open fire, sleeping under the starlit sky and breathing the cool, fresh, pine scented air. You can relive those times and create even more memories for yourself and your children and grandchildren in one of the many campgrounds the Bishop Area has to offer.

Most campgrounds in the Inyo National Forest are first come-first served, but a few such as group campgrounds for Boy Scouts and church groups are available on a reserve basis.
