All campers must first go to registration office off State Rt. 168 (turn at Mono Hot Springs sign/Forest Rt. 80 at northeast end of Huntington Lake) to pay and receive site assignment. This requirement includes campers having previously made reservations. GENERAL COMMENTS: The elevation is 7,000 ft. The campground, one of seven in the Huntington Lake Recreation Area, is a network of seven unnamed loops winding around from the shore of Huntington Lake among Lodgepole pine, back through a lush stand of fir. The ground cover ranges from sand with pine cones to fern and wildflowers. Originally constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the 1930s, the campground has been updated to include a mix of vault and flush toilets and a reliable potable water system. There are still some hints of the CCCs work, but they are most evident at the amphitheater which hosts weekend campfire programs. The mid-day winds that blow each day, make Huntington Lake primarily a sailboat lake. It has been ranked in the top ten for many years. Boats can be moored at water's edge near some camp sites. Sailboat races are a common occurrence on the lake. There are several resorts on the lake offering a full range of services from horseback rides to gas, limited groceries and restaurants. Nature walks are provided each Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Check for details at each campground's information board. For weekend and holiday stays, strongly recommend making reservations. This is bear country; practice safe food storage techniques. SEASONS Open Seasonal: Yes Open All Year: No Seasonal Comment: Open mid-May through October 1.
