Glass Creek mealtime 2023

Our rally site, Glass Creek Campground, is a free Inyo National Forest campground (donations gladly accepted) found at 7600 ft elevation on the easterly flank of White Wing Mountain. There are more than 60 sites dispersed throughout the pine forest with shade, partial shade or sun to choose from and many can fit two rigs or more. It is a dry campground with modern clean pit toilets so come prepared with a full freshwater tank and empty black and grey tanks. We’ll try to group everyone together so we can share a spot for coffee, conversation, meals and maybe a campfire.

Activities; Hiking, biking, fishing and exploring backcountry roads are available from the campground; some of us may hike the Glass Creek Meadows Trail in the Owens River Headwaters Wilderness or visit Obsidian Dome, an SNU favorite dispersed rally site. We’ll visit our choice of nearby Hot Creek Geologic site (hot springs), maybe Indiana Summit or Bald Mountain. The really adventurous might take the Mammoth Scenic Loop following the historic Sawmill Cutoff and shop in nearby Mammoth Lakes! We also accommodate your desire for horizontal aerobics, either inside your rig or on a recliner in the shade.

Meals: Sit with us outside for breakfast to enjoy the forest and plan our day. Meet again in the evening to dine with your own cuisine or share a potluck with us. “NO PROMISES” but maybe a fellow camper can be enticed to serve scratch made sourdough pancakes for one of our breakfast.

Directions: Glass Creek is located approximately 160 miles south of Reno on US-395, just 6 miles south of June Lake Junction and 9 miles north of Mammoth Lakes. Mary Swirsky noted there is road construction scheduled on 395 near Topaz Lake. Take an easy detour via NV-208 south of Holbrook Jct. east and then south on NV-839 and NV338 across Sweetwater Summit (another favorite SNU dispersed site) to reconnect with 395 in Bridgeport CA. Enjoy.

Weather: typically 80s days with night time lows in the 50s; probably no rain; wink, wink, afternoon rain storms may occur throughout the summer!
