I went there last may, and it snowed like crazy. It didn't stop me from fishing I caught 60 plus in 4 hours. Says Nolan
So many cool things to do in the Central Sierra Nevada, not enough time. You'll need more than a day to discover everything Virginia Lakes has to offer, you can camp at Saddlebag Campground. Lundy Lake is a nice lake near Virginia Lakes, and you can stay the night at Green Creek Group - Toiyabe National Forest. This lake is so wonderful.
From Virginia Lakes you acquire a great panorama of Black Mountain, and take a trip to nearby Frontier Pack Train and ride a horse. Head out on the delightful water at Grant Lake Marina-campground.
