Driving Directions

Hwy 395 is the main artery running north and south through California's Eastern Sierra Nevada. No matter where you begin, you'll use Hwy 395 to access Convict Lake. It's a beautiful drive. Be sure to enjoy the many points of interest along the way. Once you get get past Crowley Lake coming north or see the Mammoth/Yosemite Airport coming south look for the Convict Lake Road Turnoff. Convict Lake is just two miles off 395 across from the Mammoth/Yosemite Airport.

Pet Friendly Notes

We do allow pets in our cabins with a minimal fee and ask that you please keep your pet on a leash around the resort grounds.


This is a view that can very rarely be beat!! The photo hardly does justice to the grandeur of this escarpment!! I have sat and fished for hours along the banks of Convict Lake and didn't care whether I caught a fish or not (although you usually do!!) because the view is just magnificent!!
