This is a quiet older park. Pull thru is on gravel, but when you pull out, you drive through grass. Only problem might be if it was very wet. They ask you to only let dogs "go" in dog walk. Kind of hard to get puppy to hold it until we walk over to the specific area. No problems driving our 40' fifth wheel on their roads. We did have to unhook to keep vehicle off the grass. No problems though. We'd stay here again, but it seemed pricey. Hey, it's California, and choices were limited. We camped at Mono Vista RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice independent campground - grass and trees between the campsites, clean restrooms. Our site had a nice view of Mono Lake. Only gripe is that the laundry was on the expensive side - but was clean and everything worked. We camped at Mono Vista RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Called ahead about a FHU pull through site and was told that it shouldn't be a problem but the one day we arrived they were all taken (they don't take credit cards so difficult to make reservations). The gal at the counter had some difficulty figuring out which FHU back-in site we would fit in but fortunately there was someone else that did. The one rule she knew and conveyed was to not leave pets inside the coach. Wasn't a problem for us since it was now cool in Yosemite and we could take the dogs in the car but not sure how it would work during warmer months. The FHU back-ins have 30 AMP while the FHU pull-thrus have 50 Amp. Site was somewhat unlevel so used blocks under the low side. Didn't pay the extra charge for wifi. Cable tv worked fine. The shower tokens we were given worked fine when following the displayed procedure. The big trees were shedding their leaves but were much easier to deal with then pine needles in other parks. Quiet at night. Long dog walk trail but irritated with other dog owners that don't pick up after their dogs. Rate was for a FHU 30 Amp back-in. We camped at Mono Vista RV Park in a Motorhome.

The National Forest Service Visitor Center about a mile away had a wealth of information on all the attractions and were extremely helpful. We used the RV park as a base to visit Yosemite NP, Bodie Ghost Town, Mono Lake.

Gasoline is very expensive in Lee Vining so might fill toad before arriving

Nice trees, and grass. Showers were open for men and women in the same building. Had to use tokens to operate showers. Big group of bikers made up 1/3 of whole park. Across from Mono Lake. Probably wouldn't stay here again. We camped at Mono Vista RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was our third stay here. The park was clean and quiet. Showers use a token and give 5 minutes of hot water. Movies are available to rent for $2.50. Wifi is available for $4/day. We stayed 10 days and hiked in the area. Cash or check only at this park, no credit or debit cards. We camped at Mono Vista RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Mono Vista RV Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Mono Vista RV Park in a Motorhome.

We walked up to Bodie Mikes for dinner one evening and it was quite good. We also ate at Whoa Nellies Deli which is at the gas station on the Yosemite road and had some good tacos.

This park is attractive, clean and the only option in Lee Vining. The big rig sites are fairly easy in and out, reasonably level and the hook-ups are adequately placed. We cannot comment on amenities because we elected not to stay based on the owner's desire to charge us an extra $5/day for our towed - which was not mentioned when we made the reservation. We have a small Freightliner pulling a 38 foot fifth wheel and a Jeep. Upon arrival, the park owner said the Jeep would not fit in our site. We asked to look at the site and determined all three vehicles would indeed fit in compliance with the parking guidelines. The owner would not accept our determination and insisted on the additional fee. The real curious thing is the park was less than 10% occupied at the time. At that point we decided not to stay and stayed at another park. We camped at Mono Vista RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Mono Vista RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

There is only a small convenience store in Lee Vining. The closest large grocery store is in Mammoth. The Mono Inn has a very nice dinner house with a spectacular view of Mono Lake.

Considering that this park has no nearby competition, they do an excellent job. Upkeep is good, lots of nice green grass, great trees (especially in the fall when the colors are out), etc. Our site was spacious and level, and was a pull-through even though the exit area was just grass (no gravel). There are State Parks and similar in the region (no services) but if you want services, this Park is centrally located for many activities (see tips). We camped at Mono Vista RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Lee Vining is central for Eastern Sierra hikes, mountain lakes, Mono Lake, Bodie (ghost town) and Devils Post Pile (40 minutes south) and June Lake. It's also just 25 minutes from Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite. Getting an RV site in Tuolumne Meadows is like pulling hens teeth: much easier to stay in Lee Vining and drive into Yosemite.

This feels more like a campground than an RV park. You park on dirt and have grass around the site. They water heavily in spite of the water restrictions. Lots of trees but sites 1 - 10 are satellite friendly. Fairly level sites. Picnic table at each site. It is located in a very small town with not much choice in eating places. We camped at Mono Vista RV Park in a Motorhome.

The only thing good about this park is it is close to the National Park. We called Mono Vista to check on FHU site length, but the site was way too small when we got there. When we tried to ask the Mono Vista staff about changing to any available non-FHU to fit better, the staff appeared confused about what sites where available and then got very rude. Mono Vista is behind a gas station and a little run down looking. The rest rooms appeared to be open to the public. We camped at Mono Vista RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very well kept park with grassy sites. Yeah!!!. Kids, us, and dog likes grass. 50 amps. Good laundry. Right across from main Mono Lake visitor center. Pay wifi though. $4 a day. We did not use it. I got 5 bars on my Verizon phone. A great place to stay. We were here for three days. We camped at Mono Vista RV Park in a Motorhome.

Daily rate including tax is $39.20; they don't have a weekly rate. Park is in a great location near Mono Lake at the entrance road (Hwy 120) to Yosemite and hence is very busy this time of year. Our pull-thru site was nice with big cottonwood shade trees which helped on hot days. The utilities were in the right spot but there are electrical issues. We had problems with high voltage and the owner told us they have it set above 120 to 137 in case they have several big rigs using more electric with a/c, etc. Basic cable is free but Wifi is $4 per day. Showers, restrooms and laundry are open to the public so it was packed with hikers and campers from Yosemite and other surrounding areas. However, they are right on schedule with the 12-1pm cleaning every day; they have to with this heavy usage. It's a decent spot and there aren't many choices in the immediate area except for forest service dry camping. But electrical issues would probably prevent us from returning. We camped at Mono Vista RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is well shaded and sites are a mix of grass and gravel. Some leveling needed. We where to stay 4 days and do Yosemite, but the Park was snowed in and we had some mechanical problems that caused us to have to depart after one day. Owners did not charge but the one night. I do what to say something about the owners. We bent a shaft on one of our slides and if not for the assistance of the owner and his brother we would have been in a mess. It was snowing, buckets, and between the three of us we where able to straighten the shaft well enough for us to move on to get it repaired. For that I thank them!!! I would stay again in a minute.
