Forget Your Troubles at Convict Lake Resort and Campground

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

Wrapped in the majesty of the Eastern Sierra, Convict Lake Resort and
Campground will make even the most jaded individual sit back and sigh.
This magnificent setting, just 35 miles north of Bishop, California, on
Highway 395, offers the type of stress-free vacation that you have been
seeking. The resort sits at the base of Mt. Morrison; it was established
in 1929 and boasts a fine restaurant, a general store, rental boats, a
launch ramp and a marina. Guided horseback rides take equestrians along
the lake and up into the stunning John Muir Wilderness. In partnership
with Inyo National Forest, the resort boasts some of the best fishing in
the state (trophy-size German brown and rainbow trout) and offers
several derbies through the year.

And, the primitive but visually stunning Forest Service campground
features 88 sites with picnic tables and fire pits; a dump station,
flush toilets and running water add to the convenience for RVers. The
campground opens in spring and closes in fall, and the sites are all
first-come, first-served. No reservations are accepted, but the pristine
beauty makes the gamble more than worthwhile.
