Red’s Meadow Resort will operate for the 2024 summer!!!!!

We appreciate your patience thus far; it has been quite challenging to plan for this season due to the Red’s Meadow Road Construction Project. Please read this message/post through the end since there will be several changes for the 2024 season:

LODGING: Motels 1 and 2, as well as Hiker Cabins PCT and JMT, will be available to book online for all our guests. Through hikers arriving by foot will be able to book 7 nights a week. Because the road will be closed Sunday evening through Friday morning, drive in guest will only be able to book for Friday and Saturday nights. We are actively adjusting our booking platform to reflect these changes and plan to go “live” with online booking on Friday, April 26, at noon.

RESUPPLY: Resupply packages will be available to be picked up at the General Store 7 days a week. We have created an online system especially for our loyal hikers here on our webpage. You may click on the “Resupply Package” button online or stick with mailing in our resupply form with a check or your payment information. Our online resupply option will be available on Friday, April 26, at noon.

SHOWER HOUSE: The Shower House, including the laundry facilities, will be open 24 hrs. throughout the season. Please remember that shower tokens and laundry supplies need to be purchased at the General Store. 

HORSEBACK RIDES: Unfortunately, we will not be offering any horseback rides this season. If you would like to book a horseback ride, please visit our friends at McGee Creek Pack Station at

Although we have been through a rollercoaster of emotions, we are FOR SURE EXCITED to be sharing this news in hopes many of you can visit this wonderful place. Happy Trails!


Come escape to the other side of Mammoth Mountain where you will find crystal-clear streams, emerald lakes and virgin forests – the perfect place to camp, fish, hike, and horseback ride or enjoy rest and solitude.

The Red’s Meadow Resort is located at the comfortable elevation of 7,500 feet. At the Resort you will find a general store, the Mule House Café, and cabins to rent. At the General Store you can arrange for a backcountry trip into the High Sierra, short horseback ride, or just a hot shower if that’s what you need. There are 7 campgrounds located nearby – Reds Meadow, Devils Postpile, Minaret Falls, Pumice Flats, Pumice Flat group, upper Soda Springs and Agnew Meadows.

We hope you enjoy “our backyard!”

It was sadly the day the Creek fire started, so it was terribly smokey. The staff was very kind and professional, the restrooms were kept very clean, their prices are not terrible (unless you get a milkshake, holy cow, $15 a pop, but very yummy)

Great group of folks run this place, they go above and beyond for hikers. When we had to bail from the trail because of wildfire smoke they made sure we were able to pick up our resupply bucket. Thanks Karen!
