Mono Lake County ParkCounty Park is, like South Tufa, a great introduction to Mono Lake's unique waters and tufa towers.

An easy trail and boardwalk meander to the lake through the willows and marsh of the Mono Lake Tufa State Natural Reserve (between the park and the lake), filled with waving grasses, colorful wildflowers, and delicate tufa towers. The boardwalk is open again (following a fire that burned a short section).

At the lake, shorebirds feeding on the abundant aquatic life provide excellent opportunities for birding and general sightseeing. Nestled along a small stream and shaded by cottonwood trees, County Park is an idyllic picnic spot. It has toilets, drinking water, picnic tables, and a playground for the enjoyment of all. It is located just off Highway 395, five miles north of Lee Vining. Throughout summer months, birding tours are offered twice a week; check the list of Naturalist Activities to see if they are available during your visit. No dogs allowed.
