Champion Spark Plug Mine

This place is our local favorite place to go and get a ghost town/mine fix. This is such a unique place! The locals of Bishop and the surrounding areas keep this place up, repair the buildings, build woodburners for the cabins, and maintain a museum.

The main camp has about 10 cabins, almost all of them are suitable to sleep in (we prefer the Hilton cabin and you can even find our picture in the log there), it's a scenic little spot. This is where the museum is located.

Upper Camp is about an hour hike up from the main camp, and the trail isn't real great. I had a great time, this place was CRAWLING with squirrels! And Cat loves going there because she finds amazing crystals up there!
