June Lake, California is the place you want to be --ever since a number of workers migrated from the gold mines of Bodie to the June Lake Loop to construct the Rush Creek Hydroelectric Project in 1915. That was when power company employee Roy Carson started his fishing camp on Silver Lake.
In those old days the local Native Tribes would of course be in the Loop as well during the summer, participating in trade days and celebrations with all in the area.
Shortly thereafter, with the advent of mass-produced automobiles, June Lake became a favorite destination for motor touring, with its unparalleled scenic value and proximity to the newly-completed Tioga Pass Road in Yosemite National Park. A number of dignitaries and notable Hollywood figures established themselves as June Lake Loop residents for the summer months each year.
Skiing and winter activities have also been available since the mid-1930's. The June Mountain Ski Area is well-known as a family friendly resort with a wide variety of terrain for all ages and abilities.
