Just curious if anyone has camped at Sherwin Creek in Mammoth lakes before? A bunch of guys from my camping group are booked for a week up there July 4th and was wondering how the camping areas are. Any input?

We have a group of about 10 SxS guys going this summer from 7/3 to 7/11. A few guys in the group have been going ridng up there for yrs. It has been 20 yrs since Ive been up there. I will be doing some SxS riding and hopefully alot of trout fishing with a little some bike riding mixed in.

Only camping and skiing Marty. Camp grounds in the area are nice but have only done twin lakes and lake Mary, so I can't give an opinion on Sherwin.

If Its anything like cold water Creek camp grounds, you will like it. Just watch out for bears raiding your camp at night. Had it happen à couple times.

Yeah I've heard that. Just gotta keep the food inside the bear box and my cooler in the truck. I will be sleeping in the back of my truck with a shell. No MH this trip, so I can be more mobile to get to more fishing spots or go into town.

Our group now has 20 campsites reserved in the same loop at Sherwin Creek campground. This week long trip should be a hell of a good time riding to various scenic sites and hitting up some of the nearby lakes for some trout. I guess there is a creek than runs thru the campsite that also has some trout in it. MAy change up and take the MH for this one. Only about 6 more spots open and the entire loop will be ours.

There is a group of SxS riders that have already made our reservations for Mammoth Mountain this summer. We are all camping at Sherwin Creek campground for a week around July 4th. Lot of fun stuff to do in this area and we will be doing a lot of fishing and riding! So if anyone is interested in joining us, you better get your reservations set up.

I went up there recently... Didnt camp but great scenery. Trails are ok, kinda tight in some areas. Also, beware of deer hunters :)
Not going until July and that is not Deer season, but it will be trout season!! lol

Federal recreation, camping and tour reservation information - Recreation.gov is where you go to book a site for Sherwin Creek campground.

So far, I know our current group has the following spots: 36,37,57,58,59,63,64,79 & 85
These are just the spots I know of. Most are reserved for days between July 2 to July 11.
The town of Mammoth has a giant parade sheduled on the 4th of July, which some of our guys enter their cars into.

Need anymore info, let me know.
