Re: Mammoth CG and RVs

During the summer, you probably won't have a problem at Mammoth because it has a number of pull-thru sites that are 65' long. However, because the Park can get snow during any month of the year and does get a lot of late spring snow, that's one of the reasons why I suspect that the Park has had to ...

Re: Your thoughts on Campsites near Lamar Valley

Here is my old truck that was really good set up,it had a pass through door that made it much easier to enter and exit,it also had a carpet kit with storage boxes along the side.I also benefited from a mid rise shell and a 8' bed https://pbase.com/mcwilliams/image/168536169.jpg https://pbase.com/mcw...
