ROCK CREEK PACK STATION
Since 1947, Rock Creek Pack Station has been offering wilderness and outdoor vacations in the Eastern Sierra, under the ownership of the London family. Herb London was active in the operation of the pack station until his death in March of 2011. His son, Craig, has spent every summer since his birth in 1954 at the pack station and operated the pack station with his Dad.

The London Family is dedicated to serving the public, taking care of the land, making sure the horses and mules of the operation have happy and meaningful lives, and that the crew has a good time and is fairly compensated for their hard work and dedication.

After a few days of camping near and observing the wild Mustangs, known as the Living Legacy of the Old West, you'll return home with many grand stories and impressions to share with your friends and family.   Here's a little tip. Be sure to brush up on your favorite campfire songs too.
