panamint_patty: Yes, it's amazing how pleasant the weather can be up around the Charcoal Kilns and Mahogany Flats even when it's still extremely hot down in the desert. So far I've never been up there when I couldn't get a campsite up at the flats, but I know it's a popular place with only a few campsites. There's also a small campsite just above the kilns that's handy if Mahogany Flats is full.

Yes, there are three campsites near the charcoal kilns. The one just above the kilns is called Throndike (7400') and it has six sites. Mahogany Flats (8200') has ten sites and way down before the kilns is Wildrose (4100') with twenty-three sites. The road above the kilns is a little bit rough, so don't take a car not equipped for moderate off-road up there. The only one with water is Wildrose, BTW.
