Overview

Reversed Creek Campground is a small, shaded and private facility in the June Lake area of the eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains. Within a few miles, campers can access two lakes with fishing and boating opportunities, scenic views and the small town of June Lake.

Natural Features:

The campground sits at an elevation of 7,600 feet in a stand of mature aspen trees. The area is surrounded by 11,000 and 12,000' peaks. Many species of wildlife call the mountains home, such as black bear, mountain lions, mule deer, pine marten, pika and numerous fish and birds.

Recreation:

A variety of water and land-based activities surround the campground. Gull Lake, across from the campground entrance, and nearby June Lake offer great rainbow trout fishing.

Campers also enjoy paddling down Mono Creek or hiking the area's various trails, including one to Mammoth Rock and scenic Sherwin Lakes and Gaylor Lake Trails.

A drive along the June Lake Loop results in expansive views of rugged mountain peaks and several lakes.

Facilities:

This is a small facility with private campsites well-spaced around a loop. Each campsite can accommodate a 30-foot vehicle. The facility provides drinking water, flush toilets and bear-proof lockers for food storage.

Campers can make use of the boat ramp and marina at nearby June Lake Campground, as well as a swimming beach at Oh Ridge Campground.

Nearby Attractions:

Hikers can access the scenic Ansel Adams Wilderness via nearby trails, and Mono Lake and Yosemite National Park are great day trips.
