Awe inspiring Sierra Nevada's granite peaks jet up from crystal blue waters of snow-melt lakes. Creeks everywhere, great camping & fishing, ultimate back country access to Hoover Wilderness, plus a mineral springs right around the corner, Buckeye Hot Springs. Of the lucky few who knew about it, ages ago, a few sets of private cabins dot this majestic landscape.

The Twin Lakes is fishing paradise for Eastern Sierra. These lakes produce the biggest Browns in the Eastern Sierra region. Fishing spots are best along the shore line (closest to the road) and near the Lower Twin inlet.

  • description:
    Jaw dropping scenery in this special Eastern Sierra Canyon. Wilderness peaks with snow on granite & alpine scenery all around. Sun shining bright, waters cold & clear, fishing boats everywhere. Then you really stop, when you see the reflection of this incredible beauty reflected in not one, but two alpine lakes. All this as you drive along the still & serene shore line. Campgrounds & cabins, kayaks & boating - this place has ultimate outdoor recreation. NFS Campgrounds are all around 7000' elevation, so bring warm clothes for nightfall.
