Mono Creek Campground is located in the High Sierras above Kaiser Pass. This quiet, remote campground is situated in a peaceful meadow near Mono Hot Springs at an elevation of 7,500 feet. Visitors enjoy hiking, fishing, boating and horseback riding.
Each campsite has a picnic table, grill and bear-proof food storage locker. No water source is available on-site, but potable water is available at the High Sierra Ranger Station. Accessible vault toilets are provided.
In accordance with standard industry practices, Sierra Recreation will be assessing an additional vehicle fee per day on the second vehicle in each single family campsite, and on the third and fourth vehicle in any double family campsite, provided these vehicles are not joined to the first vehicle by a hitch and towed onto the site. In the case of motorcycles, the first two are considered as one vehicle for determining additional vehicle fees. The third and fourth motorcycle would also be considered as one vehicle. No additional vehicle fees are collected for bicycles.
Fire Restrictions: Fire restrictions may be imposed at any time due to hot, dry weather conditions, at which time campfires and charcoal fires may not be allowed.
Refunds: Refund requests made through www.recreation.gov will be charged a $10 processing fee. This fee is retained by the reservation service contractor along with the non-refundable reservation fee. All requests for the return of the non-refundable reservation fee and the cancellation fee will be declined by the campground concessionaire as they did not receive these fees (these are the fees retained by the reservation contractor, a different entity).
Campsites are spacious, private and shaded by mature Ponderosa pines within the Sierra National Forest on the western slope of the central Sierra Nevada. The forest is known for its spectacular mountain scenery and abundant natural resources.
The terrain includes rolling, oak-covered foothills, heavily forested middle elevation slopes and the starkly beautiful alpine landscape of the High Sierra.
The Mono Creek Trail, which can be accessed at Edison Lake, leads hikers and horseback riders to the network of trails within the John Muir Wilderness. This includes the scenic Pacific Crest Trail, which spans from Mexico to Canada.
Most recreational activities are centered around nearby Edison Lake and Mono Hot Springs. Interpretive programs, hiking, trout fishing, boating and horseback riding are popular pastimes. Hot mineral baths can be enjoyed at Mono Hot Springs.
