With 86 public and privately-owned campgrounds and RV parks in Mono County, the options are plentiful! Choosing an established and serviced campground is your best bet for a great camping experience that also preserves our pristine environment. And remember that when availability is zero in Yosemite National Park, the closest campgrounds in Mono County are only a few miles from Yosemite's east entrance.
Camping Etiquette is very important - please remember:
- Leave your campsite cleaner than when you arrived. Do not put garbage in your fire pit (ick!).
- RVers, please follow quiet hours and turn off lights and generators at night.
- Please respect "quiet hours" and all campground rules.
- Keep your dog on a leash and clean up their "business".
- Keep your food (pet food, too) in the bear-resistant containers, not in your vehicle or tent.
Wilderness and dispersed camping
We strongly encourage everyone to camp in a developed campground with restrooms and conveniences that may include water, picnic tables, bear-proof food storage, proper trash disposal, fire rings, and established pads for tents, trailers, and RVs. If you do venture out, be sure to Camp Like A Pro: know where you can and cannot camp, get a free CA campfire permit, pack in/out all types of waste, bring all the tools to prevent a wildfire, and check current fire restrictions.
