From the town of Bishop, take state highway 168 west to the junction with South Lake road. Take the road to the South Lake where it ends at the trailhead for the Bishop pass trail.

As you head south west down the Bishop Pass Trail there are a few good campsites by the first big lake you pass nearby. With some very lovely evening views of alpenglow on the Palisade crest to the east.
