Resuppy Storage & Pickup for Thru Hikers

Parchers Resort is an ideal location for hikers taking on the challenges of the John Muir Trail (JMT), the Pacific Crest Trail, (PCT) or the Sierra High Route to resupply. For a $30 storage fee (paid upon pickup), Parchers Resort will store your resupply package for up to 30 days so hikers with even the most adventurous itinerary can get the items they need to stock up on before getting back on the trail. Maximum weight is 25 pounds per package. Our store is open seven days a week from  8am to 6pm so picking up your package is convenient.   


All packages must be delivered by UPS or FedEx or dropped off in person
(USPS does NOT deliver to the camp)


We DO NOT allow packages to be shipped from our location.

Sealed buckets are preferred but boxes are accepted

All packages should be clearly labeled in bold marker - "Hold for thru Hiker", with the hiker's name and approximate date of arrival on the outside of the package. Ship UPS or Fedex to:

Public Showers

Any backpacker or camper can appreciate a good hot shower after a few days or weeks in the wilderness. Parchers Resort has public showers available onsite. Six dollars gets you 10 minutes of hot water to wash away the dust accumulated on the trail. Our showers are open seven days a week from 8am until close. The Parchers Camp Store is also stocked with all the basic toiletries in travel sizes so you don't have to lug them along.
