We have traveled the Eastern SIerra for over 30 years. It is hard to beat the absolutely beautiful setting of Rock Creek. The Lodge is a convenient point to access Mosquito Flats for some of the best day hikes in the Sierra Mountain range. There is a stunning meadow within walking distance, and Rock Creek Lake is up the road. We used to backpack, but now with age, we prefer sleeping in beds and having plumbing. The cabins range from fairly primitive to newer and modern. As others have mentioned, make sure that you carefully read the options that are in each cabin. Last time we were there, I was surprised that our cabin didn't have an oven. But it was listed correctly in the description, I just missed it. It didn't matter and we just worked around it. This is far from a 5 star hotel, so if you are the picky and pampered type, you may not enjoy it. But being able to stay in such an amazing setting is priceless.
Note: the hiking trails and parking can get quite crowded in the peak summer months, especially on the weekends. We always try and book time that includes from Tuesday-Thursday so that we can have some trails to ourselves. Go early in the day to find parking and cooler temps. Bring your fishing gear!
