    Hello Family members,
    We will be making our annual trip to Mammoth Lakes August 1st through atleast the 8th to enjoy some great riding, camping, fishing, kayaking and just plain relaxing. All are welcome and we would love to have ya:) We will be camping near Big Spring campground off Owens River Rd on Forest Rd 2S85. There are tons and tons of things to do. There are hundreds of miles of trails to ride through the Eastern Sierras, numerous lakes and rivers to swim, fish, boat or kayak in. Lots of great hikes and sightseeing and best of all, the Town of Mammoth is only 6 miles down the road and it has endless entertainment possibilities. Everything from dinner, dancing, shopping, resturants, clubs or just hanging out in town square listening to live jazz music over a cold beer or glass of wine.
    Here are some pics of last years trip to give ya a quick glance of the beauty.
    Hope some of you can join us!

    The directions are as follows-----
    1. From the 395 Turn East onto Owens River Rd. Owens River Rd is about 7 miles North of Route 203 (Mammoth Lakes Turnoff)
    2. Go 2.4 miles and turn Right onto Forest Rd 2S85
    3. Stay on 2S85 for 1 mile and you will see camp on your right.

    Now that was easy!!:D

    Notes.....
    As your driving down Owens River Rd about 1.5 miles in, you will start to go down a small grade SLOW WAY DOWN cause Big Spring Rd will quickly come up on your left and then 1/2 mile after Big Spring Rd you will be turning Right onto 2S85.
    The GPS for the intersection of Owens River Rd and 2S85 is....
    37 44' 58.37 N
    118 55' 55.96 W

    And then the GPS for the campsite on the 2S85 is.....
    37 44' 31.10 N
    118 56' 53.47 W

    Also if you need to fill up fresh water, just to the South of Owens River Rd on the 395 there is a Rest Stop that is very large and has 3 water fill-up points. 2 by the buildings on the northside of the lot and one on the southside of the lot.
    Also I will place large Orange traffic cones at the intersection of Owens River Rd and Forest Rd 2S85 just so ya know your at the right place:)
    One more quick note....
    The right turn onto 2S85 is not a U turn but close. This won't be a problem for trailers and 5er's but a large MoHo with a trailer may take a back up or two:D Here are some pics of the road to camp, Google maps and some of the surrounding area:D

    Sorry Papa! With all the work schedules, this week seemed to work the best.
    As for camp, it's not a developed camp it's free dispersed camping in the forest. The area appears to be an old logging camp. So yes it's a free for all:D
