Shaver and Huntington Lakes offer excellent trout fishing. The backcountry Edison, Florence, Courtright and Wison Lakes are also exceptional.
The San Joaquin River and Dinkey Creek are popular as well. Whether you like floating in a tube, fishing from shore or out in a boat, hungry trout await you.
When you are in the Mono Hot Springs
region, stop in and try the mineral baths and sign up for a massage. They also have a small store and nice restaurant.
NATURAL HOT SPRINGS
Talke the family and friends to enjoy a nice relaxing soak in one of the natural hot springs in the Kaiser Wilderness on the way to Mono Hot Springs or Edison Lake.
Shaver and Huntington Lakes are perfect waterways for a good old fashioned day on the lake. Pack up your ice ches, load up the kids and find one of the local beaches at either lake.
We recommend Lakeshore Beach. When continuing up the highway you will pass China Peak Ski Resort and a few miles down the road will be the little town of Lakeshore.
Directly across from the general store there is a left hand turn that will take you down to the lake. There is a great roped in swim area, dock and restrooms.
