The parking area of the Mammoth branch of Cerro Coso Community College is open to Caldor Fire evacuees until the fire danger diminishes. 

Mammoth Mountain RV Park, other Mammoth sites open until area fire risk diminishes

Several local areas have been designated as free places for Caldor Fire evacuees, local officials said. This will include areas such as Mammoth Mountain RV Park , the Sierra Nevada Resort and Spa, and more (see full list below).

The sites will remain open to this use until the Caldor Fire danger diminishes and the areas will be patrolled by law enforcement to keep them safe.

"The Town in cooperation with Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, Sierra Nevada Resort and Spa, Cerro Coso Community College, and the Mammoth Mountain RV Park, are providing temporary parking space for evacuees displaced by fire evacuations to park extra vehicles or to stay overnight in their RV or self-contained vehicle,” said Stu Brown, the Town of Mammoth’s Public Information Officer. “These parking spaces are intended only for evacuees and not for visitors coming to the area to recreate or camp - view the temporary overnight parking map.

“No facilities are provided (except at the RV Park, and no outdoor camping is allowed in the parking lot areas). All the temporary parking sites are conveniently located near or adjacent to transit routes,” he said.

The Mammoth Lakes Police Department will be patrolling these locations to ensure they are being utilized by people displaced from fire evacuations, the Town said.
