Snow Camping California State Parks

Hearty and seasoned campers can enjoy a unique experience if they choose to camp at the top of the Tram. During the winter, the brisk temperatures and the quiet that only snow can bring will offer campers one of those experiences that will long be remembered. A permit is required and can be obtained in person at the Long Valley Ranger Station or in writing. Don¹t miss this unique opportunity to camp out at the top of the Tram. At an elevation of 8,516 feet snow camping is at its best in the San Jacinto mountains and the view of Palm Springs and all the communities in the Coachella Valley can¹t be beat.
