This glamping site boasts beautiful canvas-walled tents on wooden platforms. These tent cabins are located in the pine trees, above the shoreline of Lake Thomas Edison.

Each tent cabin comes with an indoor and outdoor rug, three to four beds (these details are available when making a booking request), and a nightstand. Glampers will also be equipped with bear boxes (for food storage), as well as a BBQ grill, and a picnic table. There are Adirondack chairs on the decks, and it’s a lovely place to watch the sunset.

Finally, glampers will be within short walking distance to the shower and bathroom facilities, the café, the camp store, and a laundry room. Guests should keep in mind that linens are not included, unless arrangements are made at the time of booking.

Guests can rent fishing boats and kayaks right on the property during their stay for a tranquil trip on the lake, either to spend the afternoon quietly catching trout or kayaking up and down the river, taking in the sights and sounds of nature. Why not rent a boat overnight and camp at a remote campsite around the lake. There are many to choose from - just ask the staff in the office and they will be happy to help. Prices vary depending on the size and type of fishing boat you wish to rent, and for how long. Boats are not allowed on the lake after 7pm or before 7am due to the lack of running lights. Boats must be returned by 7pm unless you have rented the boat for an extended stay. There is a $10 fee if you'd like to rent overnight. A two-person Kayak is $55 per day or $35 per half day

Horseback riding is also a popular activity. Take a guided day ride into the backcountry and explore the National Parks. Guests can drive up the road about a mile to the High Sierra Pack Station. The hosts also accommodate overnight and longer trips to the many lakes and streams surrounding Lake Edison. Prices range from $25.00 for an hour to half-day and all-day rides.

The lake is close to the Nevada border and surrounded by National Parks, most noticeable, Yosemite National Park. Due to its location and surrounding area, the closest major airport is San Francisco, which is a five-hour drive away.

Few spots offer such superb opportunities for fishing as this lake. With the 15-mile per hour speed limit for boats, it's easy to enjoy the peaceful setting. The crystal clear water and legendary trout fishing make this the ultimate destination for avid fishermen. Brook and golden trout are found in Cold Creek and Mono Creek, which are the two primary streams that feed into Edison Lake. Bear Creek is a popular fishing stream and is located just a short car ride away.
