Tuff Campground is situated along Rock Creek in the scenic Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. It is convenient to Tom’s Place and U.S. Highway 395. At an elevation of 7,000 ft., it is lower than many of the region’s campgrounds and thus frequently one of the first campgrounds to open in the spring. Popular activities include hiking, fishing, wildlife viewing and viewing the area’s volcanic rock formations. Opening and closing dates for the season are dependent on weather. The campground usually opens the last weekend in April to coincide with the first day of fishing in the Sierras. Maximum two vehicles, or one RV/trailer per site; trailers count as 1 vehicle; extra vehicle fee of $7 collected on-site. Campers with reservation must check in with the manager. This is a high elevation facility; please use caution when traveling from lower elevations. Be bear aware; keep all food out of site in approved containers or locked inside your vehicle and remove all food from area after eating; always keep a clean camp and do not feed any wild animals. Hiking within the Inyo Wilderness requires a special permit for both day and overnight stays. These permits are managed through a limited allocation system.
