Ramblings of a Techno-Viking

Crowley Lake Campground

Crowley Lake Campground (BLM) is about two miles from the Lake, which is Los Angeles DWP. (LADWP owns lots of land and water rights in the Owens Valley and Mono Lake area -- before they lost some court cases they were close to making both Owens and Mono Lakes dry lakes by taking the water before it got to them.) This campground was refurbished in 2012, and each site has a picnic table, fire ring, and a "lantern holder" which the only use I saw of was holding plastic bags. Several of the sites are pull-though. There are vault toilets, trash dumpsters, and potable water spigots that you need to park in the road to fill your RV tank at. It is $5/night, monthly and summer-season LTVA passes (good at several campgrounds) are available. (Different rules than the winter LTVAs near the Colorado River.) There is a dump station with non-potable water, $5 whether or not you stay there. The site I chose was not very level, and my leveling jacks sunk into the soft ground so I was not level. (If I was staying more than one night I would have used plywood to spread the load.) It is at about 7000 feet altitude, so cooler than Bishop.

What are the different rules?
