The park is beautiful with lots of great hiking. Campsite we found to be very small and very squished together. Don`t plan on camping in the park with anything larger than 20`. Just outside the entrance of the park is BLM land where you can dry camp for free. Accessible for any size of unit.
April 24th, 2018 Inexpensive camping near Tortilla Flats
This camping area is located across the road from Tortilla Flat(an old west town population 6). The road in, the Apache Trail should be attempted by only smaller RVS as it is narrow and very curvy. Tortilla Campground is just past Canyon Lake. Camping there is very expensive but on the water. At Tortilla Campground it is 10$ per night at the self serve area. We were there mid February and there were plenty of available sites. Sites are all very open with very little privacy however the scenery makes up for it. Close enough to walk to the Superstition Saloon across the road in Tortilla Flats. The saloon offers entertainment on weekends and an outdoor patio.
We will never camp at Whitney again.
Park ranger went through our tent when we were gone at the park.
Very rude when asked about it. (If it wasn`t you then who was it?) Door was open and we were told you were there.
Pulled over my daughters uncle for having an owl claw hanging from his mirror. (He has had it since he was 4)
Arrested him for it...on my daughter`s birthday.
Of course we left and will not go back. Had to fight for our money back bc it was after 2. We only wanted it back for that night since we weren`t going to be there and the next day.
My son also got swimmers itch
So thanks for that as well.
Now before you ignore this post I want you to know we are professional campers. We have camped Colorado, Oklahoma, and Texas. And I have never experienced anything like this. I will be taking action for the ranger going through my tent.
Have never needed a lock on my tent before well all that has changed.
This isn`t the only review I have left for Whitney state park.
I feel like this was unnecessary and not to mention very unprofessional.
