California’s Eastern Sierra


Welcome to Coleville

Time stands still with tales of cowboys, ranch hands and California settlers in the trio of small communities along the naturally beautiful Walker River: Topaz, Coleville, and Walker, Ca. 

Coleville is a Highway 395 town near the California-Nevada border about halfway between Lake Tahoe and Mammoth Lakes, Ca.  Popular activities include fishing, horseback riding, hiking, birdwatching, kayaking, cycling on back roads, fall color viewing, and ATV riding.

Fishing on the West Walker River

The West Walker is one of the most beautiful and plentiful places to hook trout on the East Side of the Sierra. The river here is designated "Wild and Scenic" by the California Resources Agency. Whether with a guide or on your own, catch-and-release brown, rainbow and Lahontan trout in the rocky troughs of this wooded river. The West Walker is very accessible from Coleville along Highway 395. Permits are required during fishing season, which is the last Saturday in April through Nov. 15 every year. 

Kayaking the West Walker River

The river is also a favorite river to paddle through its winding bends and rocky troughs.

Road Trip Americana

Stay in a classic American motor court or RV resort including the popular Meadowcliff Resort/RV Resort. The old time roadside burger stops and motor courts of Coleville and Walker feel as timeless as surrounding cottonwood groves.

ATV Jamboree in Coleville/Walker

California only holds one all-terrain vehicle event in the state, the Eastern Sierra ATV Jamboree. Every June when the snow melts and summer is upon us, the trails of Northern Mono County open up to Off-Highway Vehicle enthusiasts. 

Wildlife Viewing & Hunting

The Antelope Valley is home to one of California's largest herds of mule deer. Visit Mono Basin Outfitters of Walker and Ken's Sporting Goods of Bridgeport, Ca. for information.

Fall Colors

Viewing fall colors is best in late September and early October the Walker River Canyon. See it to believe it!
