Campgrounds in Inyo National Forest are spread over 165 miles along the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada in California. Eighty different campgrounds have a combination of first come- first serve and reservation sites. Some roads and most of our campgrounds close in winter. A heavy snow pack may delay opening dates in spring. Early closure may occur in fall to protect water systems from freezing and to complete work for seasonal shutdown before fall storms blanket the Sierra’s for the winter.
Elevations range from 4,000’ in the Owens Valley to 14,494’ at Mt. Whitney, the highest peak in the contiguous United States. Approximately one million acres in the forest are Congressionally-designated Wilderness Areas. Inyo National Forest is best known for enjoying nature’s beauty while you camp, hike, fish, cycle, go horseback riding, and explore by off-highway vehicle use.
Laws (formerly, Station and Bishop Depot) is an unincorporated community in Inyo County, California. Laws is located 4 miles (6.4 km) northeast of Bishop on U.S. Route 6, towards the Nevada state line.
