Mono Hot Springs Campground sits in the High Sierra, on the South Fork of the San Joaquin River in an area known for, you guessed it, hot springs! The camp, nestled into groves of aspen and lodgepole pine, is adjacent to Mono Hot Springs Resort. Each campsite has a picnic table, fire ring/grill, and bear-proof food storage locker. Vault toilets are provided, but for all other supplies head to the resort’s general store. A note to the adventurous: large RV's are not recommended on Kaiser Pass Road. Hot toddies, hot fires, and hot springs. Hot Damn!

Be sure to take the 1 mi hike to Doris Lake - it's a great place to swim - warmer than the river! - and there are lots of places to jump off of rocks into the water (because who doesn't love to do that?!)

There are a handful of natural hot springs near the campground. Cross the San Joaquin using the log bridge and head up the hill - there are a few small concrete tubs, or there is a larger, natural bottomed spring about a mile away. The resort store has a map.

The drive in is potentially treacherous. After the road narrows above Huntington Lake, slow WAY down. Take ALL turns slowly. Be ready to back UP, turn OUT and be kind to other motorists who are just as freaked out as you are. At times, this is a single-lane road with no barriers, no lines, no marking of any sort on the side of a steep hill. No room for error or arrogance.
