There's a campground in the Sierra National Forest near Mono Hot Springs known as Mono Creek, and it sits at an elevation of 7,500 feet. There are 14 sites in total that accommodate tents and RVs, although RVs over 25 feet will have difficulty accessing the campground. You'll find your campsite at Mono Creek to be spacious, well-shaded, and with plenty of privacy from your neighbors thanks to the dense forest of Ponderosa pines. Bring your furry companions along to camp with you, but don't forget to clean up after them and always keep them on a leash!
Each campsite at Mono Creek comes with a picnic table, a grill, and a bear-proof food locker. This campground is located within bear country, so all food must be stored in approved containers to keep you and your fellow campers safe. The vault toilets at the campground are accessible, as are the campsites. There's no drinking water at the campground, but campers can head to the nearby High Sierra Ranger Station for water. For hot showers and other supplies, campers can make the 15-minute drive to Vermillion Valley Resort.
You'll have all sorts of activities to keep you busy during your stay. Edison Lake is nearby, and it's a popular destination for fishing and hiking that also has free boat launching services. The Ansel Adams and John Muir Wildernesses are also nearby and offer campers more hiking, fishing, camping, picnicking and wildlife viewing activities. For a day of relaxation, head to the Mono Hot Springs to enjoy the hot mineral baths.
Guests are permitted to stay at Mono Creek for up to 14 days, and up to six guests can stay at each site. If you're camping on the weekend, a two-day minimum stay is required, and a three-day stay is required on holidays. Be sure to make your reservation at least three days before you visit this pawpular campground!
