Bishop Creek Battleground is a historical site located just off Highway 168 and East Bishop Creek Road. There is a historical marker here.

The marker here indicates that a battle took place at this site on April 6, 1862. This battle took place between the original inhabitants of the land, the Paiute and Shoshone Indians, and the newly arrived citizens of the Owens River Valley.

The marker indicates that the reason for this battle has actually been lost, but that brave men on both sides died.

Aside from the historical significance of the area, there isn’t much else here except for some great views of the Sierra Nevada in the near distance.
