  mono lake
  Posted by: jonnyboy on Sep-25-11 11:33 PM (EST)
 

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.

  trip reports on p.net

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.

I haven't paddled there, but have visited. Water is very alkaline. When you get wet, it provides a feel on the skin much like when you get bleach on you. I'd want to bring a lot of rinse water to try to get that stuff of the boats before putting them on the car.

  Mono Lake SP off closure list

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.
