From Southern California, San Diego, Ventura County: Access Interstate 5 going north and take 99 to Fresno. Then take the Kings Canyon 180 freeway east (not Kings Canyon Rd.); then take the Clovis/Huntington Lake 168 freeway and just follow the signs to Shaver and Huntington Lakes.

From the Bay Area and Sacramento: Select a route that leads you to Highway 99 south to Fresno. Exit the Kings Canyon 180 freeway east; then take the Clovis/Huntington Lake 168 freeway east, and just follow the signs to Shaver and Huntington Lakes.

From Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo: Take SR 41 south to Fresno; then stay on the Yosemite 41 freeway and exit the Kings Canyon 180 freeway east; then exit the Clovis/Huntington Lake 168 freeway east and just follow the signs to Shaver and Huntington Lakes.

Although it’s only about 100 miles from Fresno to VVR, allow 2 1/2 hours driving time. Check you fuel gauge around Prather. You should fill up in Prather, Cressman's General Store, Shaver Lake Gas Mart or China Peak Landing at Huntington. No Gas is sold anywhere past Huntington Lake.

From Huntington Lake to VVR: As you cross over a bridge nearing the Huntington Lake area (about 20 miles from Shaver Lake), make sure you turn to the right. This will take you toward Edison Lake, Florence Lake and Mono Hot Springs. If you end up at China Peak Landing, you have missed the turn by about 1 mile. The first 5 miles of the Kaiser Pass road is a nice smooth two lane highway; then the last 12 miles turns into a rather narrow and curvy road.

Drive carefully as there are several blind curves. You can only drive about 20 MPH. After passing the Ranger Station, watch for a sign directing a left hand turn to Mono Hot Springs and Edison Lake. if you go straight you will end up at Florence Lake. From Huntington Lake it is about a one hour drive to VVR.
