We stayed here for three nights. It's a great location to explore Mono Lake, Mammoth, Tuolumne Meadows area of Yosemite, and Bodie.

Each site has a fire pit, bea... more

This is one of the best campgrounds we've stayed at in a long time. Perhaps it's the desert heat...or lack thereof...but since we've been enduring the sandy, blowing desert for months now, it was like heaven for little girls to find this nearly empty NFS campground with plenty of spots large enough for our 31' clinkety clack of a ti... more
