:D Hello everyone!
We are planning our first camping/fishing trip to June Lake, Ca in May. Any suggestions on a good campground? We would love to camp next to the lake if possible, however since we have never been there, we have no idea where or if there are any good spots. Thanks
Oh Ridge! campground is the largest and probably most well-known in the area. Well-suited to RV but IMHO tent campers will find June Lake and Gull Lake more to their taste since they have smaller parking aprons and fewer large motorhomes. Check for more details about these campgrounds, as well as, Reversed Creek and Silver Lake campground, at the Inyon NF pages (http://www.forestcamping.com/dow/pacficsw/inyo.htm
I would suggest, since this is your first time, making a day trip of driving the whole State Route 158 and check out the sights and other campgrounds. Also you may want to consider a visit to Mono Lake. (Ask about the children's programs at Visit Center.) I think it is an amazing feature of the area. You aren't that far from the backside of Yosemite National Park and the drive up State Route 120 (Vining Canyon Scenic Byway) is breath-taking. So much to do with so little time to do it
FYI - Often the recreation.gov site will have a map of campground's reservable site so you can select and reserve a campsite where you want to be, like a lakeside site or not (we provide the link from the campground's description
