Instead of writing down all the things and places you can go and camp, let me help you out better by leading you to a good website to start your search.
Wondering if you should camp around Mammoth Lakes? Do you like mountain scenery, lakes, hiking, maybe fishing, and a major town close enough to make you feel secure and comfortable?
Mammoth has some of the best terrain I've skied, and it's close enough for Southern Californian transplants to get there in under 8 hours. Head to the top if you're an expert and looking for a good share of double-blacks. If you're a beginner, I suggest "Sesame Street."
