OPEN ALL YEAR for backpacker resupply services; call Strider at 760-878-2121 or email for specifics. No one is allowed to resupply you on-trail or at Onion Valley due to Inyo National Forest regulations, "the existing pack station permittees have priority for those resupply services."

Please call or make a reservation online via this website. In the note section indicate you want the resupply package for the number of people in your party. I will email you a follow-up confirmation with details. Please DO NOT mail your resupply to the motel unless you have a reservation. There is a $75 charge for non-motel guest resupply packages. If you cancel your trip, there is a non-refundable $25 fee for receiving and holding your resupply.

Please use a 3-5 gallon bucket. They ship better and are bug/creature proof.  Please include a return address.

Please send your bucket so it arrives at least one week ahead of your expected pickup/arrival date. Print your name and expected pickup date on the outside of the bucket. Buckets without an arrival date will be stored in the mystery bucket room, never to be seen again.

We are open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., holidays included. Phone calls and email requests will be answered between 1:00pm - 5:00pm PST.

Note that you cannot ship or mail fuel of any kind.  We have MSR fuel canisters for sale at the Motel. (If you let us know ahead, we will do our best to buy other fuel types for you).
