Glass Creek Campground, Inyo NF

I'll be arriving here late (11pm?) for some quick Zs before taking off pre-dawn to Mammoth Mountain to drop off the car and grab YARTS back up to Tuolumne Meadows. Is the access road and campground OK for a low clearance passenger car (e.g. Toyota Camry)? Thanks.
I'm still rather convinced that you can achieve more than you've ever dreamed of if you just lower your standards.

Hi Feetfirst,

Site write "Sites will accommodate a 45 foot vehicle", so your Toyota will be sure to
make it. :D

Thanks, Maverick. I saw that and figured I'm good, but wanted to check here for confirmation since I've received conflicting info. I spoke to a gentlemen at the Mono Basin visitor center who said he wouldn't go in there without 4wd. Go figure.

I just wanted to follow up and say that regular passenger cars are fine. No problems whatsoever with clearance or tread.
