Benton California is located on the back highway (Hwy 6) outside of Bishop, on the way to remote regions of Nevada. Benton Hot Springs is the big draw here, as the small historic resort features a fine bed & breakfast w/ multiple lodging choices, plus private soaking tubs. Bummer - No more Campground at Benton!
