Join Us for a Weekend Adventure in the Alabama Hills March 13-15!

Join us for the Alabama Hills Weekend Camping Trip from March 13-15!

Located in Lone Pine, CA under the shadow of Mount Whitney, the Alabama Hills have been featured in hundreds of Hollywood films, from old westerns to sci-fi classics. Dust off your cowboy hat, and get ready to explore this geological wonderland!

We’re excited to be joined by camper Jaymie Shearer, creator of the Mug Life Project. Jaymie is a lifestyle photographer on the road, exploring the power of community and how it can be created with something as simple as a mug. As a souvenir of our weekend together, each camper will get to take home a vintage travel mug.

Beginner and experienced campers welcome. Let us show you how easy and fun camping in the outdoors can be! Only 10 spots available. Early bird campers get $50 off until March 4, so register today!

Fresh coffee will be provided each morning. We practice Leave No Trace to enjoy the environment responsibly, so make sure to bring your own mess kit and reusable water bottle. Check out our Packing List and Gear Guide for recommendations.
