Agnew Meadows Group Camp offers a puptacular home base for recreational activities in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. This spot has space for large families or other groups that want to get out and explore the wilderness together. Group sites can accommodate 10 to 20 people. There are vault toilets, picnic tables, fire rings, and potable water available here. Prices for single sites start at $23, and the group sites can be reserved for $75 per night. The facility is open in the summer but not accessible during winter months. Check with the Forest Service about any seasonal burning restrictions before your visit.
You can bring smaller campers here, but the roads are narrow, single-lane, and unimproved. The campsite sits among lodgepole pines and is near some creeks and a small lake. Although you're at 8,400 feet up here, tall mountain peaks surround the facility. If you come in spring or early summer, you'll see a kaleidoscope of wildflowers dotting the meadows. The views are truly spectacular.
For recreation, you can take your pick of nearby pathways like the Pacific Crest and Ansel Adams Wilderness Trails. Bring your pole and waders with you to go fishing in the Middle Fork of the San Joaquin River. This area boasts all kinds of wildlife, including mule deer, a variety of birds, mountain lions, and black bear. You must use the bear-proof lockers to store your food and other scented items when you camp here.
The campsite is pet-friendly, but dogs need to stay on a leash. Collect their waste and dispose of it properly. Do not leave Fido unattended at any time.
Load your vehicle and head to the Red Meadow Valley for a camping adventure with your furry friend. The Agnew Meadows Group Camp has standard and group sites available on a first-come, first-served basis. Come here to explore the rugged wilderness, hike through the Sierra Nevadas, and enjoy the stunning views in this high mountain valley.
