Mono Camp is my new favorite Hipcamp. I almost don't want to tell people about it, because I want to be able to come whenever I want without the calendar being booked up. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about it. You have your own private view of Mono Lake and the expansive vistas in all directions. There's a nice firepit with chairs and a grill rack. And it's so easy to get to — just off the main road, and minutes from the 395. From there you can go anywhere in the Eastern Sierra with ease.

If you're coming in the colder seasons, definitely would recommend snagging Juniper Camp out of the three sites, since it has this amazing little cabin. It's simple, but very thoughtfully made and has double pane windows! When it's 25F outside at night, having that to sleep in when you were expecting to tent camp feels like an incredible luxury. I didn't even need to use the wood stove. And it's the most private of the sites, I think, set back further on the property with a few trees in front. If you have a large group then one of the other ones might be better to fit more tents.

The best part of Mono Camp is how totally quiet it is. You can sit there forever in utter silence, day or night, aside from a very occasional car on the highway or visits from the beautiful, diverse birds. It may be different if your camp neighbors are louder, but I was lucky and mine were just as happy to also sit around their campfires saying nothing. Just enjoying the stars and the reflection of the moon on the lake. Oh, and there are so many stars. (Also saw Mars, Saturn, and a few meteors!)

If you're looking for somewhere to get away, this is it.

View from Mono Camp at sunset, with the moon over the lake — I didn't even need to use a headlamp much after dark because the moon was so bright out there

Campsite is spacious. Area has outstanding scenic quality with views of Mono Lake and Sierras. Pinion pines provide much privacy. Very nice sitting area and fire pit in front of cabin. Came prepared to sleep in a tent with abundant places to pitch, but slept in the small cabin instead which was warm, quiet, and comfortable. Greeted by friendly dogs. Took many short walks including one to a tufa formation. Cellular service is available if you need to stay connected. No need to bring bottled water. This was my first Hipcamp experience and will definitely come back to Mono Camp

Amazing location and accommodations! The hosts are accessible if needed but otherwise you feel like you're on your own private paradise. Might wanna read up on learning to light oil lamps and wood stoves as those are the only light and heat sources provided. We stayed on a night when it was about 50 deg. Fahrenheit and it was really cozy without the wood stove turned on. They have a 2 burner camp stove so just bring your own fuel. There's plenty outdoor seating provided, a fire pit, and a relatively clean outdoor bathroom. The potable water is a short walk up from the cabin and it's super tasty. Overall do yourself a favor and book this listing.

We had a great experience on this campsite! Great scenery and views! Very convenient to visiting Mono Lake and the ghost town, Bodie. Our host, George, was really nice, friendly, and very helpful.
