Activities, Events, Fishing and Skiing - Fun!

June Lake, California and the surrounding area of June Lake Loop and Mono County have been a popular yet secluded area for vacationers. From around the country, people head to the High Sierras on vacation, and enjoy a wide-range of activities, annual events, incredible fishing and fantastic skiing. This explains the popularity of June Lake, just off Hwy 395 between Yosemite and Mammoth. June Lake is a popular destination because it is in the middle of all these fun things to do, and provides very affordable accommodations that serve as a base-camp for families and friends enjoying the area.

June Lake Loop includes Silver Lake, Gull Lake and June Lake, along with the famous connecting stream named Rush Creek. Nearby is Mono Lake, and to the south, Mammoth Lakes. Together, these bodies of water create ideal environments for a healthy fishery, lots of trout, and monster Brown Trout. Here's an updated fishing report along with information on guides, the fisheries future and additional research.

Fun Activities

One of the reasons that June Lake is a popular destination for vacationers, is the unique position of our little vacation town to some very popular sites and activities. From June Lake, just to name a few, you can visit a ghost town, Yosemite, a bunch of hot springs a beautiful remote lake and a ridge named Rainbow.


Skiing June Mountain has been a fun activity of people of southern California for many years. Historically, many believe that Clark Gable and other Hollywood actors came to June Lake when the only way up a historic portion of the snowy mountain was a rope tow. Today, June Mountain Ski Area continues to be a family friendly experience where everybody knows everyone, the lift tickets are cheep, lines are short, and the powder is deep.
