The small town of Lee Vining is located about 23 miles north of Mammoth on U.S. Highway 395 along the southwest shore of Mono Lake and near the foot of Lee Vining Canyon.

Lee Vining is a “Gateway Community” to the granite and meadow splendor that is Yosemite National Park. The community lies at the intersection of State Route 120, the Tioga Pass Road, and U.S. 395.

Tioga Pass Road begins just outside of Lee Vining and takes travelers over 9,943-foot Tioga Pass and into Yosemite and Yosemite Valley.

Lee Vining Canyon, located thousands of stomach-dropping feet below the road, is one of only two ice climbing venues in California and home to some of the county’s best trout fishing in Lee Vining Creek.

The economy of Lee Vining relies largely on tourism, since it is the closest town to the east entrance of Yosemite National Park. But that is just the beginning of what Lee Vining has to offer.

Right below Lee Vining, Mono Lake, with its picturesque and otherworldly tufa formations, dominates the view. Lee Vining Creek roars out of the high Sierra peaks above town and tumbles down the rocky hillside to empty into Mono Lake just a few miles from town.

A former mining town called Bodie is one of the world’s best-preserved ghost towns and Bodie State Historic Park is only about 45 minutes away from Lee Vining.

The ski resorts of June Mountain and Mammoth Mountain are both under an hour’s drive from Lee Vining.

Gigabit speed broadband and a spirit of entrepreneurship are triggering new growth and new opportunities in Lee Vining.
