Benton

From US 395 just south of Mammoth Yosemite Airport, turn east on Benton Crossing Road (at the green church) to see one of the oldest surviving towns in Mono County. Established in 1862, Benton once thrived as a silver and gold mining town with 5,000 residents and a Wells Fargo stagecoach station. Today, visitors enjoy soaking in natural hot spring tubs, camping under starry skies or relaxing Bed & Breakfast style. Stroll through the past on a self-guided Historic Benton walking tour. Maps of the route, and reservations for B&B/campsite and hot tubs are available at The Inn at Benton Hot Springs.
