I stopped here on my way to a quick visit to the lakes. The staff were informative and friendly. The welcome centre contains a wealth of knowledge so I would recommend a visit on your way to the lakes.

I have been coming to Mammoth for over 40 years. This was the first time I stopped at the Welcome Center. Great place to visit. I learned more about Mammoth's history and special spots to see than I did over all the years I have been visiting Mammoth.

A very pretty lake. We had a picnic and just about froze with the wind coming off the lake but what a fun experience. The bathrooms in the campgrounds were locked already for the year.

A trip to the mammoth lakes visitor center definitely was worthwhile. The very friendly and complimentary personnel helped us to plan a perfect day trip to convict lake and lake Mary, with a wrap up visit to the bowling center "rock n' bowl". The advice was perfect! We had a great time at all three places!

The staff are very knowledgeable about nature activities and things to do in Mammoth. The store has a good map selection including topographic maps. The book section was wonderful with national books and books of local interest or by local authors. For example, they had Cheryl Strayed's book and several books on local missing hiker mysteries.
