Very close to the border of California and Nevada lies stunning Topaz Lake, at the northern end of the Antelope Valley. It’s an ideal location for your next motorhome camping trip in the spring, summer and even winter. Just off US State Route 395, Topaz Lake offers an interesting mix of outdoor recreation, although its main claim to fame is the excellent fishing opportunities in the lake, beckoning serious anglers from far and wide. While the fishing season runs from January to September, the lake attracts visitors through the year for a host of fun activities, and camping with an RV is a great way to explore Topaz Lake and all it has to offer.

When you search for an RV in Mono County, you will conveniently be able to access areas around Topaz Lake like Bridgeport and the Bodie State Historical Park on the Californian side, and Gardenville and Reno in Nevada.

Discover Topaz Lake

Getting Outdoors

The Topaz Lake Recreation Area, sitting on the border of California and Nevada, serves as a base area to explore Topaz Lake and its fine offering during your RV rental vacation. The desert lake is popular with anglers, boaters, water-skiers, and campers.

If you take fishing seriously, it’s a good idea to head to the lake at the crack of dawn for a great fishing experience. While the lake is well stocked with trout, shore fishing can be pretty effective, especially from the western edge of the shore. However, boat fishing throws up way better chances of a good catch, especially keeping in mind that it’s a large lake. Fishing in Topaz Lake is popular in winter and early spring months, unlike other lakes in the area. Fishing in these early months in the year is known to yield excellent results when fishing for rainbow and brown trout. A California or Nevada fishing license is required to fish in Topaz Lake.

Summer months are perfect for bringing out your watercraft to the lake. Sailing boats, water-skis, and jet skis are popular on the lake, and if you enjoy your adventure water sports head here in the summer to make the most of 25 miles of shoreline. Boat launching facilities are available at Topaz Marina or the Douglas County Park.

Hikers and bikers are in for a treat when you go camping at Topaz Lake. Opt for hiking and biking trails in the Topaz Lake Recreation Area or in Douglas County Park.

Camping at Topaz Lake

Topaz Lake camping areas come equipped with lots of amenities to make your stay by the lake comfortable and convenient. The Topaz Lake RV Park is located on the west shore of the lake and has over 50 campsites. Facilities include pull-thru sites, full hookups, 30 and 50 amp electric service, water, sewer, a water spigot, WiFi, cell phone coverage, restrooms, showers, and laundry. There’s a camp store for last-minute camping supplies, including propane. Let the kids have fun exploring the recreational trails around the campground or splash about on the beach. Your furry friends can use the designated pet area.

To camp in an RV near Topaz Lake, drive to Gardenville to the Topaz Lodge RV Park. It’s an option to consider with 59 sites equipped with full hookups, pull-thru sites, 30 and 50 amp electric service, water, sewer, and a dump station. Restrooms and hot showers are available too, along with a camp store for supplies, and a café for snacks. The swimming pool on site will keep the kids busy, while you get to check out recreational trails by the campground or try your luck at the casino.

Exploring the Area

Rent a camper near Topaz Lake to explore areas close to the lake. One such town worth checking out is Bridgeport, about 42 miles from Topaz Lake, and a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. As the county seat of Mono County, Bridgeport is located at an elevation of about 6400 feet, bang in the middle of Bridgeport Valley and on the Intersection of US Route 395 and State Route 182. As a part of California’s Eastern High Sierra, the town has quite a few gems you’ll enjoy exploring on your visit.

The Travertine Hot Springs to the south of Bridgeport, along Route 395, is made up of a handful of pools with the stunning mountains forming a backdrop. Immerse yourself in the hot springs for a truly relaxing experience. Soak in the goodness of the hot springs while you enjoy the views of the Sierra Mountains around you.

If Travertine gets too busy, try the hot springs at Buckeye. Right by the Buckeye Creek, the hot springs here are made up of two pools. It’s quite an experience to take a dip in the cool waters of the Buckeye Creek and then soak yourself in the hot springs.

Close to Bridgeport is the Bodie State Historic Park, a historic gold-mining ghost town that was once inhabited by miners from the Gold Rush era of the 18th century. Walk down the deserted streets of this once-bustling town; check out the landmarks of the town, now in decay, but preserved by the park. Stop by at the Visitor Center of the site for information and brochures.

The small town of Bridgeport has quite a few dining options to choose from, including delis, bakeries, bars, and restaurants offering local cuisine. Visit the Big Meadow Brewery for a tour and a beer. Stop by at one of the convenience stores to stock up on supplies, and fill up your rental RV at one of the gas stations before heading out on your next set of travels.
