Economic Development and Special Projects



Mono County Economic Development staff work closely with these two commisions:

Crowley Lake

The community of Crowley Lake is just 12 miles south of Mammoth Lakes along US Hwy 395 and overlooks a vast trout fishing lake by the same name.


Topaz Lake is an outdoor paradise for camping, fishing, boating, water skiing and off-roading. Topaz is located on the very northern tip of Mono County, bordered by Douglas County in the State of Nevada. Topaz lake is fed by the famous West Walker River, well known for its great fishing from the last Saturday of April through the last day of September. Topaz is also popular with boaters and water skiers.  You can find picnic grounds, camping, boat launch facilities on the north east shore of the lake and also amenities and gaming at the nearby Topaz Lodge Casino.

Coleville & Walker

The peaceful, beautiful ranch towns of Coleville and Walker, located in the northern part of Mono County, offer hikers, cyclists, joggers, horseback riders, and off road adventurers plenty of space to experience nature at its best.  Following the West Walker River, there is a wide variety of 1960’s-style motor court motels, rustic cabins, RV Parks and campgrounds available for visitors who come to enjoy the outdoor activities and scenic beauty of the area. Both communities offer dining options, shops and amenities.


The community of Bridgeport serves as the Mono County seat. Once known as "Big Meadows" for its fertile and open grazing land, Bridgeport California today is the hub of a year round vacation paradise. The community is rich in history, recreation, and scenic beauty. Surrounded by vast National Forest lands and the Sawtooth Range, this section of Mono County is an unspoiled recreational playground with pristine lakes, rivers, streams and hot springs. Naturally, there's great fishing, hunting, hiking, cross country skiing, snowmobile trails and horseback adventures.

Lee Vining

The High Sierra community of Lee Vining is a very friendly town located in the central part of Mono County. Lee Vining is the ideal vacation headquarters or location for a potential business. Lee Vining is the eastern gateway for Tioga Pass and Yosemite National Park, home to Mono Lake, and a short distance from Bodie State historic park (the official state ghost town), the June Lake Loop, and Mammoth Lakes. Lee Vining has excellent lodging and dining options, amenities and ample year-round recreational opportunity, as well as an elementary and secondary school.

June Lake

The intimate lakeside mountain village of June Lake, California is located on the southern rim of the Mono Basin in the Eastern Sierra along the paved, two-lane Highway 158, also known as the June Lake Loop. Nestled at the base of spectacular mountains at an elevation of 7,600 feet, June Lake offers 17 lodges, eight restaurants, four lakes, and endless opportunities for memory-making adventures.

Mammoth Lakes

The Town of Mammoth Lakes is located in the heart of California's Eastern Sierra Nevada mountain range in the southern half of Mono County. It is about 325 miles north of Los Angeles, and about the same distance east of San Francisco, and is 164 miles south of Reno, NV.  It is a small but lively town of only four square miles, home to a special brand of people who have chosen to leave behind their urban lifestyles and experience nature at its finest.  Incorporated in 1984, Mammoth Lakes is a relatively young town located in the Inyo National Forest, Mammoth Ranger District.
