Thanks. The camp was a derelict until the parks admin turned it into a historic site. I drove by it for years when it was just brush and the kiosks. There is an excellent museum there now housed where the old auditorium and gym were. On HWY 395 out of L.A. There are lots of interesting sites traveling up the eastern Sierra. Also near by is a museum dedicated to the B Westerns that were shot in a near by place called Alabama Hills. Something like 200 movies were shot in that location. Gunga Din and dozens of westerns. That area is also one gateway to Death Valley. Further up in the Sierras there is plenty to shoot. Aspens, mountain lakes, Mono Lake and many streams etc.The Eureka Sand Dunes are also worth visiting.

Ansel Adams took his famous picture of Mt. Whitney in along 395 in that area, although a friend drove the area extensively in a 4x4 and claims the bolder field in the foreground of Adam's shot does not exist in that spot and claimed it was double printed. Who Knows?
