We are going to be in the Bishop area for a few nights in early July (part of a hiking/camping road trip) and we are trying to identify a nice quiet and remote campground (must be able to drive to it in ordinary saloon car) in the mountains west of the town. Can anyone recommend a campground? I understand many campgrounds in the area don't take reservations so I am wondering what the chances are of turning up and just being about to get a pitch?
Lastly, any recommendations for good, long day-hike loops? We are experienced hikers,and fit and can hike up to 20 miles in a day but probably don't want to go for 14,000er summits due to hassle of organising permits ahead of time from UK.
Hi, I'm planning on visiting Bishop in November. Any advice on where to stay? cheers
