I was wondering if anyone on here has paddled mono lake, and if so camped overnight on the islands or in the area in general. I am planning a trip, I know the islands open in September and have heard that camping is allowed. I was wondering if a permit is needed and would be interested to hear about your trip and any pointers. Thanks in advance.

There are 2 trips reports for Mono on paddling.net. Check them out at http://www.paddling.net/places/CA/ and page down to Mono Lake. Unfortunately, neither covers the rules for camping, which I hear is legal and also heard what you reported - that the islands are off limits during part of the year.

Good news! A massive grassroots effort has very recently resulted in the State of California removing the Mono Lake State Park from the park closure list effective December 1, 2011. For information on camping and other park features, go to www.parks.ca.gov and click on Mono Lake.
