Former ranch on northwest side of Mono Lake.

Thompson Ranch was irrigated by Dechambeau Creek, augmented by water brought from Mill Creek in two ditches, the Upper Thompson Ditch and Thompson Main Ditch. A few of the irrigation ditches still function, bringing water out into what might otherwise be a dry meadow.
