Iris Meadow Campground is located up Rock Creek Road, which is approximately halfway between the towns of Bishop and Mammoth Lakes. A decent-sized meadow borders the campground where irises and other wildflowers bloom in late spring. Most of the campsites here border a row of aspen trees, but are fairly exposed with little shade. Rock Creek flows along the far side of the campground.

Iris Meadow Campground contains 14 campsites. Trailers or RVs longer than 26 feet aren’t recommended. No hookups are available, but the campground does have flush toilets and potable water. Each campsite has a picnic table, campfire ring and bear locker for safe food storage.

The campground is open seasonally, usually May through September, but dates vary year to year. Note that no reservations are available, all sites are first come-first serve.
