Crowley Lake Fish Camp is a full-service campground that offers rental cabins, RV sites, boat slips and rentals, and a “dry” campsite. It lies next to Crowley Lake, a man-made 12-mile long and 5-mile wide reservoir that stores the Eastern High Sierra’s melting snow and rainwater. 

In the early 40s, the Los Angeles city officials approved the construction of Long Valley Dam which created Crowley Lake, turning the Owens Valley’s vast meadowland into an extensive waterway system. 

Crowley Lake has always been a popular fishing destination with its healthy population of trout and other freshwater fish, but over the years, it has been attracting water sports enthusiasts who are into kayaking, wake surfing, water skiing, jet skiing, wakeboarding, and stand-up paddleboarding.

As of this writing, Crowley Lake Fish Camp is the only concessionaire on the lake. 

RV Campground

The campground features multiple RV sites with shade and full hook-ups and 12 dry campsites, although the management also allows dispersed camping (camping outside the designated campsite) near Beaver Cove. 

The use of generators is allowed between 7 am and 10 pm and fires are permitted.

  • Dry campsites: $20 a night per vehicle

Rental Cabins

The camp offers three rental cabins available for reservations, each featuring a fully-equipped kitchen with gas BBQ, mattresses with linens, AC units, and satellite TV, which you may not probably need with the enthralling view of the surrounding mountains, meadows, and McGee Creek. 

All cabins are one-bedroom with a loft unit. Two of the units have a queen-sized bed, a living room with a sleeper sofa, a loft with two twin beds, accommodating up to six persons. 

The newest cabin, meanwhile, is almost the same as the first two, except that it has no loft area. 

Additional info: 

Cabin rentals come with a $100-worth boat rental credit or a free dock space if you have your own boat. The campground requires a minimum of two nights for their cabins. 

Also, make sure that you bring your own fishing gear, toothbrush (and some toiletries), and food. However, you can also have your meal at their bar and restaurant that offers taco, hot dog, burrito, Angus burger, potato salad, etc. 

 

Boat Rentals 

Crowley Lake Fish Camp has boat rentals from 6 am to 5 pm, with half-day rentals between 6 am and noon. For cancellation or any changes, make sure that you inform the management at least 48 hours before your reservation. 

The fish camp offers different types of motorboats, some of which have shade covers, fishfinder, and flat bottom, a design ideal for guests with dogs and those who want a more stable platform for casting. 

Depending on the type of boats you rent and the number of passengers, boat rentals cost between $60 and $325. 

The marina facility also includes single and double kayaks that cost $15-$20 per hour and $7-$10 for each succeeding hour. 

You can also bring your own boat, which will be inspected for any presence of quagga mussel, an invasive species that originated from eastern Europe.
