Mammoth in June??

We are taking my girlfriends parents to their childhood camping spots near Lee Vining, CA in late June. We also want to spend a few days hiking the valley of Yosemite (another post entirely). We see some great deals in the Mammoth area. We feel that this would be a great location for our excursions to Lee Vining, Lundy Lake, etc.

Our questions are:

Is anything open in that area restaurants, bars, etc.?

Any suggestions on a close location to these places if they are open?

Any help would be useful... and I am aware that we are very late in planning.

By late June, restaurants and other activities in Mammoth will be geared up for the summer season. Lodging around the Village offers a number of restaurant choices within walking distance, but Mammoth is only 4 square miles and has a free transit system (though it sounds like you'll have a car). Lee Vining and the June Lake loop offer more rustic accommodations and fare, but are fun, friendly places and great summer spots. Enjoy your trip!

1) One of our favorite restaurants in the Eastern Sierras is just south of Mammoth - Convict Lake Inn. Great food; good food; great mountain setting.,


(if interested, make reservations).

2) On your way back from Lee Vining, Lundy Lake (one of our favorite trout fishing places), be sure to also take the drive through June Lake Loop area. Four nice lakes - Grant, Silver, Gull, Lundy. There is a wonderful resort there called Eagle's Landing, but as mentioned a fair number of rustic but good places to stay in the mountains as well. We usually book a condo (and they are super nice with a bedroom downtstairs; large kitchen, living room, and bedroom. We book that through Rainbow Ridge Rentals.




for a mountain bar on the loop, we like Tigers Bar; and for a mountain style restaurant we like Carson Peak Inn



Mammoth Lakes has a fair number of restaurants.......for brunch, Schatts is a good choice with small bakery with all kinds of yummy goods and a small cafe


We were just up in the Tahoe area and from the Eastern Sierra side all are open. To get to Yosemite, you still need to have Tioga Pass opened. its not yet opened but given the low snow levels I would give 100 per cent certainty you will have no problem going to Yosemite via Tioga Pass in June.

Lots of lodging available because it is the off season for all the ski condos. It is a worthwhile destination because the John Muir Tr runs through it so you can see hikers at Reds Meadow. devils postpile and rainbow falls are interesting places to hike and explore. Plus there is an earthquake fault in the ground that is a nice place for a picnic
