Lone Pine at Xmas

We made reservations at the Boulder Creek RV park in Lone Pine, CA for the dates of December 22, 23, 24 and 25.

We'll be there with our 2013 16' Sport. Anyone who would like to join us there are plenty of sites available.

We just spent 4 days at Boulder Creek RV Part in Lone Pine, CA. Great place to spend a few days. We have a 2013 22' Sport, and plan to return to Boulder Creek next October for the Lone Pine Film Festival. Have fun!

LP Film Festival

Hope you made you're reservations early or you'll end up in the back dry camping.

Jackie and her staff do a bang up job entertaining during film week end.

I've been a few times and staying at Boulder Creek makes it a great experience. If you havn't been the LP film museum is a treat. The last time we we're there we had dinner at the Merry Go Round. Hard to believe a high end restaurant exsists in a town as small as Lone Pine.

We've stayed in Lone Pine for months at a time. Great little town, minus the grocery store. Boulder Creek RV is a nice facility, but if you drive just a few miles down the road to the "Whitney Portal Road" and hang a left, and a few miles up the way turn right on "Movie Road" you'll be in the Alabama Hills. Free BLM camping anywhere within the Hills with a 14 day limit... Stunning scenery to wake up to and some of the most gorgeous spots we have boondocked in. Also check out the Tuttle Creek Campground on Horseshoe Meadow Rd. (past the Alabama Hills on the left hand side of the Whitney Portal Road) This campground is $5.00/day and has a great creek running through the back of many of the sites. It's seasonal though, so it will be closed at Christmas when you are there.

Enjoy.

We were there in October also. You're right about the weather! Breezy and sunny in the mid to high 70's .... We've been told there is "better" water if you drive back towards town at the Portagee Joe campground. We'd usually fill up there rather than with the water at Tuttle Creek. There is a dump station on the way out of the campground, but that's an additional fee I believe.

Yes the dump fee was $5
Being such a short drive to the top of the whitney Portal made it a great place to stay.The many off road trails and flowing creek through the campground was nice too

Here's two pictures we shot ... one in the Alabama Hills and the other at the Tuttle Creek Campground. Both beautiful places.

Lucky for us there were a few spots left for film festival weekend. We ate at Seasons, next to Merry Go Round, and the food/service was excellent. Also enjoyed the museum.

Lone Pine

We own property over in the little town of Keeler on the east side of the dry lake.

Although not as nice as having a place in the Alabama's we still have a sit down panaramic view of the Sierra's. We hope to retire there and build a place.

Now that DWP has been and continues to clean up the lake we look forward to nice air quality.
