Old Bodie Railroad Grade - Mono Lake, Ca

 Old Bodie Railroad Grade - Mono Lake, Ca

This location is only a few miles from Mono Lake and Lee Vining, Ca.  The site is in the woods only by about 200ft but is completely secluded but still has views of the lake.

The GPS coordinates are 37.890323, -118.958260. This site is great for travel trailers, truck campers and tents. I don't suggest large 5th wheels or class A RV's since there are low hanging limbs.

There is an existing fire pit but make sure you have a California Campfire permit. They can be obtained from any forest service office for an entire year for free.

Close by is June Lake. This picture was take Oct 2014. Fall colors were just about peaking.

Sage Hen Meadows - Mono Lake, Ca

Sage Hen Meadow - Mono Lake Ca

To get to these 3 sites enter well graded dirt road at 37.890742, -118.865246 and follow the road about 2.5 miles and all 3 sites are on the right when you see the sign.

The sites are located at GPS coordinates 37.866720, -118.861070. Each site has room for about 2-3 rigs but the second and third site will be harder to get to because of the low hanging branches. There is also sand close to the sites but should not keep non-four wheel drives from them. Each site has an existing fire ring. Make sure you have a fire permit. There is a pit toilet at site 2, but was closed when I was there.
