Description

Added by Pine Watt

June Lake is a hidden gem with beautiful views and sunsets. If you're up in the Eastern Sierra, be sure to swing by, take in the view, and enjoy the food at Ohana's Hawaiian food truck.

June Lake is a hidden gem in the Eastern Sierra, just north of Mammoth Lakes. June Lake is a quaint little lake with spectacular views. The neighboring town of the same name also boasts a brewery with tasty brews. For a truly unforgettable sunset, grab some brews and walk over to June Lake for the view.

While cruising down 395, just be sure to turn at the June Lake Junction, then just head on down the road into June Lake. On the way you will pass June Lake proper. For the best spot to camp, reserve a spot at Oh Ridge Campground.

If you are looking for Brews and Grub, head over to June Lake Brewery for growlers to go, but don't forget food at Ohana's Hawaiian food truck just across the parking lot. Believe it or not they serve great Poki Tuna.

Reviews

Camped just off the shore of June Lake for three nights in June. Perfect place to camp, albeit a little windy. Nearby brewery served great craft beer, and there's a nice market in town where we picked up some much needed supplies. About 1.5-2 hour drive to Yosemite Village, so if you're making that trek, start early.

Went to June Lake with my husband on our honeymoon in April at stayed at the historic Heidelberg Inn (highly recommended.) It was the off-season so almost everything was closed, but we enjoyed a rugged hike along the lake and some gorgeous walks around the town. I'd love to go back - I'm sure it's gorgeous in the autumn.

June is a great spot if you're looking to explore a little outside of Mammoth Lakes. The drive a quick 20 minute drive up the 395. If you're looking for a relaxing day, grab a bite at the food truck (the brewery isn't half bad either) and head out to lake to enjoy the views.
