    Important information:

    Troy Meadow campground is almost 1.5 hours drive from hwy 395, and you will gain about 6,000 feet altitude driving up 9 Mile Canyon Road.  It is important to fill up with fuel in Pearsonville (Shell) before heading up 9 Mile Canyon Road.  It is recommended that you bring at least 5 gallons of extra fuel with you, since the Kennedy Meadow General Store sometimes is out of fuel, and they usually only have regular when they do.

    Troy Meadow campground is a first-come campground so try to arrive on Friday afternoon if possible to secure a site.  The camping fee is $17 per night.  Some may wish to camp in Monache Meadow, and if you choose to do so, a recommended area to camp is at 36.200650,-118.176111 which is at the edge of the meadow, about a 45-minute drive from Troy Meadow campground.
