Baker Creek Campground

Looking for quiet and solitude in the state of California can be a challenge, but it doesn't have to be. If this is what you're seeking, consider booking a spot at Baker Creek Campground near the city of Big Pine. This rustic campground has limited amenities and could be the perfect RV campground for you. It's open year-round, and sites can be booked in advance and rented by the day for short stays (monthly and seasonal RV camping isn't offered). There are vault toilets, but there aren't showers or potable water outlets, so you should carry water with you for drinking and other purposes.Individual sites at this Big Pine campground can fit midsize to larger RV rentals, but they don't have hookups. All of the sites have picnic tables, fire rings, and grills for outdoor barbecuing. The park is child and pet-friendly, though pets should be on a leash while within the park limits.Once you're settled in, it's time to start looking around. If a quiet afternoon of fishing is on the books, you can fish in the Owens River year-round, while other lakes and streams have seasonal fishing from late April until mid-November. There are numerous fishing derbies held during the summer if you'd like to join in and meet people, as well as other events like music and film festivals, arts and crafts shows, a Wild West marathon, and much more. Don't forget to take your Big Pine RV rental for a spin on the local highways; driving an RV is a unique experience, and you don't want to miss out on it.

The Great Outdoors

Book an RV in Inyo County, and you will be ready to tour this magnificent area in comfort and in style. Yosemite National Park is a must-see destination for its name alone, but your trip here will expose you to deep valleys and grand meadows, waterfalls, old-growth sequoia stands, and the majestic granite glaciers of the High Sierra range in the background. The park has deep historical importance and was home to the Miwok Indian tribes long before being settled by Europeans; you can visit the Yosemite Museum in Yosemite Valley to learn about these people. It was also an inspiration to photographer Ansel Adams and became the main focus of his work. While you're here, you can enjoy a variety of activities such as hiking, mountain biking, and rock climbing, among others. The park has been designated a World Heritage Site and an Important Bird Area, making it an oasis for bird watchers.Coso Range Wilderness Area is situated on the northern part of the Coso Mountain Range and is a habitat for creosote, low desert shrubs, annuals, and cactus; large stands of Joshua trees populate the area which has suffered erosion, revealing volcanoes, valleys, and washes. Several sites will provide you with magnificent views of Owens Valley and the eastern portion of the Sierra Nevadas; the best of these is Joshua Flat. You can spend your time here hiking, hunting, or horseback riding (or a combination of them); camping is allowed and if you choose to do so, bring your camera for snaps of some amazing sunsets and sunrises. Of course, you'll also want to get a photo of the area with your rental RV in the foreground, so you can show everyone back home what they missed.Death Valley National Park is a must-see destination for those who enjoy stark contrasts. Its valleys exist below sea level and are exemplified by long periods of drought and record temperatures, while at the same time, its immense peaks bear snow in the winter. Occasional rains bring forth fields of wildflowers and replenish oases that support tiny fish. Your trip here should start with the visitors center where you can talk with park rangers and obtain any passes you may require. The center has a bookstore with small snacks and bottled water; if you have kids with you, completing some small activities can allow them to become junior rangers. You can hike, bike, and backpack in the park, which also has numerous roads that allow you to take a driving tour. However, as the roads are often dirt and may be in various states of conditions, a driving tour might be better suited to a four-wheel-drive or off-road vehicle and not an RV.

Exploring The Area

Bishop is a smallish town in Inyo County, but at the same time, one of its larger communities. It has also been a popular filming location in Western movies starring John Wayne and Charlton Heston. If you spend some time here, you can check out the antique stores and museums; one of the museums focuses on the cultures of local indigenous peoples. The town also has a hot spring where you can enjoy a relaxing dip in the hot tub or swim in the adjacent pool. There are a few trails near the town where you can hike if you still have energy left, or you can indulge in a nice meal in one of their many restaurants (Bishop has a good selection to choose from).Lone Pine is the location of California Historical Landmark 507, a marker headstone that commemorates the earthquake of 1872 that destroyed most of the buildings of Lone Pine, which has since rebuilt itself. It's a convenient place to stop if you're on your way to hiking nearby Mt. Whitney, but the town itself has a friendly atmosphere and is worth visiting. The town has a museum dedicated to the history of Western movies, with exhibits and memorabilia from this unique cinematic genre. It's also a good place to stop and eat, with many inexpensive to moderately priced restaurants, many of which are locally owned and operated.Quiet and solitude with friendly vibes and urban comfort; it's all here just waiting for you, and Baker Creek Campground is where your adventure will begin.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
