  • It's five star I suppose. We never actually got in the building because there was a wasp infestation that was being delt with. Instead we walked around the building on a lovely morning reading info signs. When we got to front patio a ranger told us about walking on the south side of the lake. It was a pleasant time. The bathroom was open and we got water the dog got a drink.
  • If you ever have a chance to go out east of Yosemite you will enjoy a truly spectacular treat that is mono basin. We arrived just at sunset and we're treated to an amazing Sky show. The landscape is really unique and the stalactites in a lake are breathtaking. There's a great Visitor Center that explains the wildlife habitat and vegetation.1600s
