Last summer, during my trip up the Owens Valley, I stayed a couple of nights at Mammoth Mountin RV Park.
The approach to Mammoth Mountain RV Park is the main road from U.S. 395 (about 2 miles) into Mammoth Lakes.
The park is in a forested area with plenty of shade from the pine trees. Some campsites are gravel with sewer hook-ups and some are asphalt without sewer hook-ups. I ended up in an asphalt site since I didn't make reservations. But they do have dump station facilities available. I had a table and fire ring. I had to use my leveling blocks to level the RV.

It is a nice park with a pool, jacuzzi, store, laundry, playground and shower facilites. There's also tent areas.
The staff was friendly and helpful. The park is within walking distance (about 5-10 min.) from stores and restaurants. The price per night was $45.

The roads are wide enough to maneuver through the park.
I took a day trip up to Mammoth Lakes to catch the mandatory shuttle ($7.00) to see Devil's Postpile National Monument.

I would recommend making reservations in order to get a gravel site with full hook-ups. At least I didn't track in dirt and gravel into The Beast thanks to the asphalt. The site was more than adequate for Sierra and I.
When I left the Mammoth Lakes area, I headed north on U.S. 395 to Yosemite National Park's Tioga Pass road to drive through to get to U.S. 99 as gasoline was about $1.25 cheaper there than the stations on U.S. 395.
I gave Mammoth Mountain RV Park four out of five stars at RV Park Reviews.
My grade: A.
