Just wondering what the cell coverage is like at say, the Lower peppermint campground or around that area in general. We are heading there and some friends will try to meet us later.

The whole area is pretty much a dead zone. When I was at the (burned down) lookout on the highest dome last August I could barely get enough service to send a text and I have Verizon.

Generally, there is not cell phone coverage in that area. Given the way the Upper Tule drainage is oriented, you get some odd pockets of coverage, but nothing near the Needles as far as I've experienced.

Definitely no cell coverage.

I have spent many dozens of days in the Needles proper and at Dome Rock without ever successfully completing a cell phone call. I have even had trouble completing sat-phone calls. Unfortunately, the nearest working pay phone is down in Camp Nelson, more than 20 minutes away.

Thanks for the confirmation! I am going to fall back to our good ol' pencil and paper at the campground bulletin for communication.

Were you fishing at Peppermint? I've heard people say that the scenery is better than the fishing though you can do pretty well if you go right after they stock the river.

No I was fishing the kern from the limestone campground about 20 minutes from peppermint. Saw some people fishing peppermint with no luck, it could be good with the right water levels.
