OverviewThe outstanding lake and mountain views at Oh Ridge Campground make it a favorite spot for both families and anglers. It sits in the eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains in close proximity to the Ansel Adams Wilderness, Yosemite National Park and Mono Lake. The nearby town of June Lake offers the convenience of shopping and dining, while the surrounding land and lakes provide ample outdoor recreation opportunities.
Campsites are located in a mostly open area above the shoreline of beautiful June Lake. Save for some scattered pine and aspen trees, the campground has little shade. Nearly every point in the facility has a view of the surrounding 11,000-12,000' peaks. The campground's elevation is 7,600 feet.
Oh Ridge campers have no problem staying busy and enjoying the outdoors. Within the facility, they can swim in the lake's clear waters, fish for rainbow and Alpers trout, go canoeing and boating or walk to the Oh Ridge viewpoint, after which the campground was named.
This is a large facility with campsites organized among several loops named after area animals. The campground is equipped with drinking water and flush toilets, and sites have picnic tables, grills and bear-proof lockers for food storage.
Mono Lake and its many activities are minutes away. Hikers can access the scenic Ansel Adams Wilderness via nearby trails, and Yosemite National Park is a great day trip.
