    safety techniques.

I've been to the campground and it is a great area; however, it is NOT an arid environment as the description says.? It is located at over 7000 feet in a forested area.? In addition, there is NO access
 to Devils Postpile (or the Mammoth area, as is implied by the lodging links). The campground is located at the end of the road and there is no road pass over the Sierra anywhere in this area. This campground is seasonal and is snowed in completely in the winter. Says Sven

This is a primitive camp ground which obviously means that there are a small number of services. This primitive campground is located in an incredibly striking place. Getting to this
 
    primitive campground may be a tad hard, but it's well worth it; at this primitive campground you may get a finer wilderness experience than you would get at a more civilized campground. You've been indoors for too much time, and Jackass
  Meadow Campground in California is a great selection.
There are so many exciting things to do near Jackass Meadow Campground, and scores of folks are fond of coming here to escape.
All the tremendous local attractions in close proximity and the tremendous variety of outdoors recreation are pleasant reasons to come.
The Central Sierra Nevada scenery is always pretty.
