An assortment of rustic cabins and comfortable cottages dot the grounds of the Rock Creek Lodge. At the center, sits the lodge itself, where you can have a delicious breakfast of pancakes, waffles, or even a Greek omelet. After breakfast, we always take a walk around the small lake that sits just up stream from the lodge. As you walk... More

Rock Creek Canyon is one of my favorite places on earth. I've been frequenting this area for over 25 years. Normally, there is a three night minimum stay. I called on the off chance that we might be able to book a room for one night, and was thrilled when Rock Creek Lodge accommodated my request. We stayed in cabin... More

The rustic cottages are perfect for enjoying the beauty of nature surrounding them. The cottages are very basic, no luxury accommodations here but are comfortable and provide the basic amenities (kitchen, bathroom, comfortable beds). Hiking trails start right outside the front door and the lake is 5 minutes away.

I have visited the Rock Creek Lodge four times in the past three years and I am looking forward to a 5th in August. I have rented their cheapest cabin as well as their most expensive. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. Rock Creek Lodge is the father-son destination of choice for myself and my now 8-year-old. Perfect place... More

Rustic setting in the mountains. Perfect for hiking and fishing. We stayed in one of the modern cabins, which are not stylish but are comfortable and more than adequate. The new guy who works the store is very friendly and helpful. If you are a prima donna and want luxury/spa services, this isn't the place for you. Mammoth is about... More

So I planned my yearly fishing trip to rock creek lodge and everything goes bad before we even check in... WHAT A DUMP and major health hazard is an understatement. There website even agrees by stating: "Bobby Tanner is making much needed improvements". Okay, that's another understatement of the century. Upon arrival, I try and check in and the rooms... More

We just returned from another trip to Rock Creek Lodge. This trip was much better than the last visit we had when we had problems with Jan. Jan was still there but we didn't see much of her. They had the most wonderful man, Jeff working the store and he was the nicest person we have ever talked to that... More

Great location if you like hiking and fishing. The main lodge could use some TLC. The stove leaks smoke badly and the TV VCR and DVD player need to be replaced. Modern cabin was great but needed a toaster and larger coffee brewer.

Our family has been coming each year, sometimes twice a year to Rock Creek Lodge for 38 years straight except for the 1 or 2 years before the current owner purchased it when it was boarded up for that time. We have raised our children coming here and this is a very special place for us and will continue to... More

Thank you for your comments in regards to Rock Creek Lodge. I would appreciate it if you would contact me directly (7609370101) as I would very much like to know what has prompted the negative comments about Jan, the manger of RCL. I can only assume from the comments posted above some very negative interaction must have happened between you... More

First discovered RCL two years ago while riding in the Fall Horse drive at the RC Pack Station. Promised to return to this lodge with my loved ones to enjoy the beautiful crisp autumn of the Eastern Sierras and it happened this year! We (3 adults, 3 dogs) stayed at one of the modern cabins which sleeps 6, so there... More
