“Beautiful and Good Fishing”

Reviewed Sep 10, 2015

Overall Rating

We got here a couple days before Labor Day weekend 2015 and it was great. Slightly busy, but relaxing, easy-going, lots of open sites, and I caught a few fish. The campground hosts were very friendly and even offered us some fresh caught trout for dinner. Labor Day weekend brought hoards of people and it got crazy busy. The campground was full, the campground resort across the street was sold out, the parking at the trail head across the street was spilled out onto the road and so on. We found ourselves trying to get away from all the people. All the same, this is a beautiful spot and if you can go midweek during an off time, it can be really nice.

There are no signs or even a map of the campsite numbers when you arrive so it helps to know where you are going before you show up. Reservations are accepted and highly recommended. The roads are narrow and down by the lake they are lined with willows which makes it very tunnel-like. The rest of the camp is wide open. The wind can get very fierce here, so be prepared for that. When it's calm, it is beautiful. There are places to fill your RV tank with water, but there is no dump station.

The nights were cold and it went below freezing a couple times. The days were very warm and shorts weather. Lots of hiking trails nearby, and lots of dirt roads to explore if you have a jeep or similar. We love the geology in the area and there are several obsidian/pumice domes nearby. It's also close to Mono Lake, Mammoth Lakes and June Lake.

Silver Lake Resort across the street has a wonderful little store with all the necessities, and a great, but very small cafe. The breakfast there was to die for.
