If you’ve been hankering to get off the grid and give roughing it a try, it’s time to head to the Buckeye Campground, located just a hike’s distance away from nearby Yosemite. Hot springs lie due east of the campground and provide shady areas for communing with nature. If you prefer to take a more hands-on approach, there’s plenty of fishing in Buckeye Creek available as well. Be sure to pack in your own water!

The thing about this camp ground is that it's actually not open and you have to drive over the creek and up the hill to find what I can only imagine is what the mono county campground site describes as a parking lot. That's where you actually pitch a tent. I saw no country store, no resort, and no shell station the way I went. Apparently there are different ways in. All the folks we met were as sweet and polite as punch. Loved it. You just have to make peace with it being unclear and difficult to find, but you will!

A long drive off of the main highway but well worth the solitude and scenery. No cell service and last I checked the water sources were out. Pit toilets, fire ring, bear boxes, and picnic tables available.
