Perhaps the greatest views you will see from any campground, but also, very sad to see that it's potential is not realized. It's billed as an RV only, emergency overflow campground. Strictly for dry camping. For years, we tried to stay here again, but were told it was "overflow only." Then this year, with the nearby Silverlake campground closed due to repaving, the rangers at Mono Lake, said we could use it. There's a 3 night maximum and we were by ourselves both nights except a small rig pulled into the campground the second night. You are parking on asphalt with no facilities, but again, the soaring cliffs and views are beyond belief. Nobody came around to collect our pay envelopes, and in fact, the tube for your payment can be unscrewed by anybody on the bottom and taken. There needs to be somebody checking on the place once in a while. Nearby there is stunning hiking, boating in June Lake. Supplies available in Mammoth Mountain or Lee Vining. We were somewhat hesitant to go off and leave our rig because nobody at all was around. Would have been better to have a camp host or somebody else nearby. The site numbers on the pavement are all worn off. Because we feel strongly that this area should be used by more and allowed to be used, we hand carried our two payment stubs and checks to the Mammoth Mountain visitor center and gave them to the ranger. He seemed perplexed as well and said he would put the checks in the safe. A tough site to catch when it's open, but awesome. - elduque

We have stayed here for many years. The park has sites for all lenghts. Our site was very level and long enough for our 40 ft. motor home and toad. We had a view of June Lake and Carson peak. Water for rv's is available in each loop. Dump station available as you depart. Our site was very open which we lIke for our roof top satellite. - signaloil

One of our favorite campgrounds. Great views from many sites. Very large campground. Drive around beforeally selecting site as some are much better. Good beach. Store and showers very close. Lots of sun early in the day in cold weather. - Pierce

Dry camping overlooking June Lake in the Sierras. Many loops of camp sites. Most loops have restroom facilities, no showers. Dump station charge is $10. Temps in August 80's in the day and mid 50's at night. - Charlie M.

This is an old park with some redeeming aspects but otherwise not on our list of places to revisit anytime soon.
First the positives: The bathrooms, showers and laundry facilities were clean and functional. After reading past reviews, we were pleasantly surprised.
On the negative side, the park could do with selective culling of some pine trees. Our 31' RV barely fit between several trees and we couldn't back in far enough to connect the sewer hose without an extension. There wasn't room for our toad so we parked it in the common area next to our space. The spaces are dirt that got tracked in no matter how careful we were. We lost power for about 20 minutes one night. The worst issue was the pine sap everywhere. It was caked onto the bottom of our shoes, tracked into the RV, on our cat's paws and all over the roof including the solar panel.
Each space had a (cracked) concrete patio, a (old, rickety) picnic table and a washer tub as a fire pit.
Others may find Pine Cliffs fine for their needs but we were underwhelmed. Alcohol doesn't touch the pine tar. You'll need some sort of solvent like Goof Off or the like. Be sure to arrive with a full propane tank because, as of 5/28/16, they were charging $3.89 per gallon. - LM&TinView

Wow, we spent the July 4th weekend with many tent campers in the park. Not what I thought it would be, with tent campers playing loud music and washing their dishes in the bathroom. The PA system is not our cup of tea for sure. I don't see any reason why the camp host must tell everybody to bring a bowl and a spoon for free ice cream. The camp patrol folks were driving around nonstop looking for issues. This is a good thing with all the tent village people walking through our campsite nonstop. We will never stay here again. Good luck staying at this campground on a holiday weekend. - Blackhawkpro

We made group reservations for 4 sites and paid by check, the only way to pay, 3 months in advance only to show up and be scattered throughout the campground. Completely disorganized, old school reservation system which is poorly run by rude staff,we were overcharged, cash only, and our trailer barely fit in the site despite giving measurements in advance. The owner is rude completely lacking customer service skills and will straight out tell you if you don't like it, leave, with no refunds of course. Watch out for the hidden campground rules; Campfires out by 10:30, $50 non refundable pet deposit in the cabins (if its nonrefundable its not a deposit in my mind), no dogs on the lake beach, no use of a/c or you'll be charged for it, the sites are only 20 or 30 amp so if your trailer needs 50 amp you're blowing fuses daily. We wont ever stay here again. - nascar_gal76

Love this RV park. Spaces are a little tight but that's made up for by the great customer service. Great fishing lake, boat rentals, hiking trails. Wildlife viewing is awesome. Every time we go, there are more improvements to the park. This is their 100th year so it's quite rustic and even though it's been modernized, they try to keep the rustic appearance. Cabins are available as well as an outstanding restaurant. Try the biscuits and gravy, the best I've ever had. - User3492

We stayed here for 4 nights. Upon arrival the gentleman at the office directed us to park and unhook. He then used a forklift to put our travel trailer into the designated spot. The site was level on gravel and a cement slab with a picnic table. All the sites had full hookups and were clean. Staff were nice and accommodating. We ate breakfast on two mornings at the cafe. Never had an issue getting a table, but you need to get there when they open. The food was excellent and attached to the store, which was stocked with anything you may have forgotten at home. On one of the nights there was a commotion with a couple who was in another RV. The sheriff's were called and there was nothing staff could have done to prevent this. Other than that we had a great stay. Make sure you have satellite TV or bring a lot of DVD's since there was no cable/local TV or wifi. Cell service was very spotty at best. We walked across the street and fished most of the time and caught some good sized trout. If you go in the morning to fish get there early since the shore gets busy with anglers or rent a boat. We would stay here again. - Austinp

All sites are back-in and very close together. The Camp Host had to use a forklift to park our fifth wheel. In fact, he had to used forklift to park quite a few fifth wheels during our stay. The sites are dirt and gravel with concrete pad and surprisingly level. Fire and BBQ facility is available at a centralized location. Try to avoid sites on Row A, C, and E unless you like the heat from the afternoon sun. Afternoon shines right into the door of the rig at the aforementioned rows. Securing loose items outside is a good habit to get into as the wind can get quite strong at night. Be prepared with your own hot spot as there is no Wi-Fi available here. There is a $10 cash deposit to get the key to the bathroom and shower. Laundry is $2 per wash and $.75 to dry. We camped here two weeks for fishing and didn't find any fish. We won't be coming back again. - gartail

This a small park located between Gull Lake and June Lake. There is some shade during parts of the day. All sites are gravel with hookups at the rear. It can get pretty tight when the park is full, which is most the time. Good tv and wifi. Camp hosts are friendly and helpful. Many returning RVers that stay for many months. Nice walk to both lakes or into town. - MJHP*28

We was in a back in site and was a little tight but doable. Staff was friendly and helpful.hookups were at back of site so extension might be necessary. Nice friendly people. - Donny Mackelprang

This is a great RV park located in June Lake. We've been coming here for years and believe it's the best park in the June Lake Loop. It's close to town and both Gull and June Lakes. They have an exceptional camp host who goes above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. He and his wife even host a monthly pancake breakfast and (with the help of a long-term camper) they cook for the entire campground. You can tell the long-term returnees really like each other and help to make the stay enjoyable for those of us who are only here for a short time. It really is a wonderful place to summer or just spend a few days to a few weeks. However, we've seen some disappointing changes this year. It appears as if the owners no longer care about their park. While hosts keep the bathrooms very clean, they've run out of supplies such as soap and toilet seat covers. Apparently the owner doesn't care enough to buy more. The other complaint we heard repeatedly from fellow campers (and ourselves) was how difficult it was to make a reservation. We'd call the office at different times of the day and it would go to the answering machine. Even though we'd leave messages, they weren't returned in a timely manner if at all. We got lucky and just kept calling and finally reached a real person. This is very frustrating when you're trying to plan a trip. When we finally spoke with the person in charge of making reservations, she was very rude. We heard this complaint from several of the campers. They have Wi-Fi but it's so bad you rarely can get online. Like I said, it's almost as if the owner and his office manager no longer care about this park. It is up for sale and maybe that's why. Hopefully someone will buy it and have the current camp host continue to run it so it'll get back to being an awesome place to stay. - Kay Martin

This park is pretty quirky. It's small with spots on the front & back and a few more wedged in the middle. We got a wedge spot in the middle and didn't like it at all because there was zero privacy. And I mean Zero :/. But, in all fairness, it was the 4th of July and somebody has to get the crappy spots. Management was as friendly & helpful as could be which was a big plus.
We were told when we made the reservation that there were no public bathrooms or showers so that wasn't an issue to us. Is a rustic, small park.
The park is located in a neighborhood and very close to the Main Street, a brewery and some awesome Hawaiian food truck grub. It was a terrific place to walk the dog! Gull Lake is a couple blocks one way and June Lake Marina is 1/4 mile in another direction.
We will definitely return but we'll ask for a better location. We have our preferred spot scoped out already! - CathiDG

This is the sixth year of staying in this park. We love to come here because there is a "June Lake House" in the center of the park and 4 couple friends can stay there, those without rigs. There is also a cute little cabin they call the Bears Den that has a murphy bed, kitchen and living area. We enjoyed the community fire pit in the evening, kayaking on Gull Lake, biking the Mammoth Lakes bike trail and golfing while in the area. Some of our group walked around Gull Lake and others visited the Tufa's at Mono Lake. For the most part the park is clean. Page the manager is helpful and we enjoyed out visit. - msunnergren

So we're here right now. Last night lost all power. They moved us to a new spot. The staff is fantastic! Coming to June Loop. This is the place to be. - Blackhawkpro

We stayed here with a 40' motorhome and the price reflects our Golden Age card. The Duck Loop is best for big rigs. None of the loops are directly on the lake, but there is a very nice day use area with a large beach. There are water spigots in each loop, but no direct hookups. There is a dump station. We were here off-season so not many were here, but in the prime summer/fall seasons it would be advisable to have reservations. The mountain/lake views are gorgeous. We would definitely stay again. - nbi600

We paid two nights in advance for this place which is supposedly right on June Lake. What a nightmare. We could barely get our 25' motorhome in there, and the spaces were packed so tight you could hear the people 5 spaces away yelling at their kids. It also backs up to a motel parking lot which of course USFS neglects to mention on their reservation site. We left, abandoning our already-paid for spot. Do not stay here unless you really want to get to know everyone around you, you don't need hookups, and you have a REALLY small rig. - casasf

We stayed here back in 2011 and nothing much has changed since then. This is a basic USFS campground. The layout is rather confusing and the roads through the campground wind around in an unpredictable way. There are plenty of sites to choose from, whether you want to be down near the creek, out in the open or tucked into a grove of little aspen trees. The beauty of this campground is its proximity to Yosemite National Park and Mono Lake. There is one vault toilet facility (not being kept very clean on our latest visit). There are no hook-ups and no dump station. It now costs $10 to dump at the gas station in Lee Vining. Make sure you come with your own supply of potable water as there is no water available in the campground. - BruceandKathyWA

A forest service campground, so no services. We loved it. Could hear Lee Vining Creek rushing over the rocks. Short walk to the creek. Site 1 (we had this one) is a great pull-through with lots of privacy. Close to town and close to Yosemite National Park, though not the valley, and Mono Lake. We paid $7.00 with a Golden Age card. Would most definitely stay here again. Very relaxing. - ChrisnMarv

Nicely treed and next to a small stream, but no water. Permanent vault toilet was clean, but need a flashlight. Porta potties not so nice, but closer to most sites since the campground is along a linear arrangement. Campground sign is easy to miss and the name of the campground is not visible from the road. Public water is along hwy 120 before the campground turnoff. Be sure to try out the gourmet fare at the Mobil station at the corner of Hwy 395 and 120. The Whoa Nellie Deli was great enough for us to return twice. Good place to check out Mono Lake and the Tioga Pass. - Thunderboldt

This is a really nice Forest Service campground. There are 17 sites available for tents or RVs. There is also a campground host site, and the host was really nice. It's bear country and bear proof lockers are available and must be used, unless you want to risk a fine, and a bear! There is a nice stream that runs along the campground, and there is evidently good fishing (trout), as evidenced by one of our neighboring campers, who have gotten the same site for 3 years in a row. Obviously they love this campground as much as we did. There is no dump station, but there is one just west of Lee Vining at the gas station on 120. There is a $5 dump fee, unless you fill with gas, then it's free. Campground rate reflects Senior Pass rate. - jbarry130

This place was very tight for our 40' motorhome. We just barely fit into the site provided but we did fit and we quite happy afterward. It was a back in site which made the process somewhat exciting. You are pretty close to neighbors here but if you are touring the area who stays around all day. Park is convenient to numerous travel destinations one of which is Yosemite. This campground has a lot of one night travelers and tent campers which was pretty cool. Our site did not have sewer and was 30 amp only. WiFi was good but as we had trees no sat and no cable. Still all in all a good park. - jeffnbarb

We came from Bryce NP which was a long trip in itself. We arrived after hours and the only sites available for our 25 foot Class C was a water and electric back-in which was OK. The site was fairly level, gravelled and grassy, and shady which helped to cool things down quickly. There was road noise to put up with due to a nearby brush gire that caused traffic to be restricted to single lane. Credit cards are not accepted so it's either cash or personal check. - KC8RXQ

This park is conveniently located within driving distance to many Eastern Sierra areas. It is a beautiful day drive over the Tioga Pass into Yosemite and fishing is available in streams and lakes. The park itself is walking distance to the small area in Lee Vining with coffee shops. Our site was a pull through on gravel and grass and was mostly level with convenient access to utilities. The cable television had poor service but was available. The park has numerous cottonwood trees, which at this time of year had so much fluff that it often appeared to be snowing. While there is no enclosed dog area, there is a lovely desert walk with a nice path. The owners stress that dogs are not allowed to be left unattended in your unit which does make it difficult at times. Each side has a barbecue area but no fire pits are available. This park only takes cash or checks. - bbmidwife
