State ParksHearty and seasoned campers enjoy a truly unique experience at the top of the Tram during the winter. At an elevation of 8,516 feet—with brisk temperatures and a quiet that only snow can bring—snow camping is at its best in the San Jacinto Mountains. And the view of Palm Springs—and all the communities of the Coachella Valley—can’t be beat!

A permit is required and may be obtained in person at the Long Valley Ranger Station or in writing. The State Park charges $5 per person for camping permits. There is no fee for day hiking permits. For more information please click here.
