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.

We stayed for the second time and again loved it. The park is green and most spaces are spacious. The view on Mono Lake is fantastic. Not all spaces are leveled so bring enough wood for leveling. No wood fires are allowed but you do have an own BBQ and of course a pick nick table. We camped at Mono Vista RV Park in a Motorhome.

Hike down to the lake, it looks tough but it is not too bad. The path starts at the visitors center which is also worth a visit. Just relaxing after a few days of hiking is also a great option here.

Paved roads, level gravel sites. Only 30 amp but with water/electric or full hookup sites. Only a few sites get satellite signal but good Verizon signal. Free basic cable, but no Wi-Fi. Lots of tall trees. Great location, can walk to stores in town. Family owned, friendly and helpful. Does not accept credit or debit cards, only cash or check.

Staff friendly, park quiet. Pull-throughs into grassy area. Lots of watering in a drought. Concerned about driving the grassy area with the watering, but was not affected. Would stay there again. Little choices in this area. We camped at Mono Vista RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground, all in all, would stay again. A bit of a drawback, laundry was expensive and since it uses propane, dryers needed to be run twice. Very pretty town, lake unique and beautiful area, and the bus runs to Yosemite once a day in the morning. BUT, and it's a big BUT, it takes 2.5 hrs to get there AND it doesn't run weekdays except in July and August! These restrictions that aren't advertised, neither at the campground nor on the brochures given out by YARTS (Yosemite Transportation...) that run the buses. So if you count on that to get you around, you might get stuck during the week without mode of transportation, and the closest Enterprise rentals are 25 miles away. We camped at Mono Vista RV Park in a Motorhome.

Expensive for what it was. Everything was just average. Clean but not immaculate. Not a lot of amenities. Wifi but only close to the office. Book swap area which we always appreciate as are avid readers. Site was mostly flat. I don't think it was good value for money. We camped at Mono Vista RV Park in a Motorhome.
