food for your adventure



Kennedy Meadows is the gateway for the California Eastern Sierras.  There are many outdoor opportunities available for all kinds of outdoor sports including off roading, hunting, fishing and world famous hiking.  Kennedy Meadows marks the mountainous beginning for many adventure seekers hiking the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), which starts in Mexico and ends in Canada.  Grumpy Bears has been a Kennedy Meadows icon for 50 years serving food for wary hikers, and hungry hunters and fishers.  Hearty breakfasts and juicy hamburgers keep you going on your adventures.  We also have vegan/vegetarian options.

Hiker Amenities

Kennedy Meadows is the 700 mile marker from the southern most point of the Pacific Crest Trail.  If you are passing through the Meadows, you may need to take care of a few things.  Grumpy Bears Retreat will have some basic needs to help you recharge before you start across the Eastern Sierras.  We offer hot showers, laundry facilities, dry camping and will accept your hiker resupply boxes.
