Sierra Nevada FSJ's Fall Camping Trip - Bridgeport, CA

Post by Dr. Marneaus » Mon Sep 24, 2018 10:14 am

Hi Everbody!

I know this is somewhat short notice, but we had posted it on the facebook group and been discussing it for several weeks on there.

When: October 5th
Where: Green Creek Campground or just outside of the campground on public land.
Less specific where: Few miles outside of Bridgeport, CA.


Plan is to camp, preferably at a group suitable area, just outside of Green Creek Campground. There were several spots located within national forest land, that were big enough for several vehicles. This provides easy access to fishing up at Virginia Lakes, as well as access to Bridgeport, Bodie, Mono Lake, lots of hiking trails at the trail head, or however far you feel like driving. I don't know much about specific off road trails in there area, but I saw a bunch of roads going off into nowhere.

The road in is a wide graded gravel road. Its 100% 2wd friendly. I saw a big RV parked out there in a spot outside the campground. The road is mega washboardy.

I intend to bring my little trailer behind the Wagoneer.

Its easy to find, despite the fact that I got lost the first time I tried to camp there. Just south of Bridgeport, take Green Creek Road. Drive 11 miles. Arrive.

I was up there 3 weeks ago and in the areas outside the campground they seemed very strict about no campfires, so, plan accordingly.

Anyway, let us know if you're in! I'll have this posted on the Sierra Nevada FSJ's facebook page too, as an event.

I have been considering it. Its about a 2 hour drive, so not bad. But not sure I can swing an overnight trip. But will report here if I can. Would love to meet you guys, even if camping doesn't work out.

Sadly, I am not going to be able to make it at all. I have had some unfortunate family things come up. I really do want to meet up with you guys, but this unfortunately will not be the time :(
