This area is Closed

Sitting on a large, sandy flat under a grove of oak, pine and cedar trees, Rock Creek Campground is divided into three sections, with Rock Creek running through the middle. One section of the camp sits nearest the access road; the other two sections can be reached via a bridge over Rock Creek. On this side, the largest section is located in closest to the swimming holes and rock water slide in the area. Each campsite has a picnic table and campfire ring with grill. Parking spurs are paved and dirt-surfaced. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided.

Swimming holes can be found along Rock Creek. Rock Creek Campground is located close to Mammoth Pool Reservoir near the Ansel Adams Wilderness and provides more recreational activities, including fishing, boating and hiking. This area is known for its jagged peaks, including 13,157-foot Mt. Ritter, and numerous lakes and streams.
