PCT, JMT and backpacker resupply

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."


We offer our Complete Resupply Package for motel guests (2016 rates are $175 for one person, $225 double occupancy) that includes:

Strider at Muir Hut

  1. Receiving and holding your resupply in our secure, air-conditioned motel;

  2. Complimentary beverage upon arrival;

  3. One night’s lodging;

  4. One breakfast per person;

  5. One load of laundry per person;

  6. Complimentary ride to and from Onion Valley Campground; pick up time is 12:30pm; return ride departs after breakfast at 8:00am; for motel guests only.

Additional loads of laundry are $15 per load.

Fuel, packing and logistical help also are available.

We require 72 hours advance notice via email or phone to cancel a reservation and receive a full refund.


Please call me or make a reservation online via this website. In the note section indicate you want the resupply package for one or two people. 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. Resupplies that arrive that have not been pre-paid or do not have a reservation will be held for 30 days and then donated to the hiker box.

Ship your well-sealed 3-5 gallon resupply bucket to:
Mt. Williamson Motel and Base Camp, PO Box 128, Independence, CA 93526.

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.

We are open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., holidays included. Phone calls 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).
