We spent an enjoyable morning at the lake (would have stayed longer if we didn't have to drive to Death Valley in the afternoon). There is plenty of free parking, something we don't get a lot of in the UK, and we rented some kayaks, which were really reasonably priced, to spend some time on the lake.

Had two families of 4 out on the lake for the afternoon on one of the Pokenobe pontoons. Staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. Really great experience out on the lake today.

Lake Mary has really blossomed into quite the spot above the Mammoth proper area. They now have paddleboarding, pedalboats, rowboats and kayaks for rent and the prices are very reasonable. The views are spectacular and the early mornings and evenings there are simply breathtaking!

No fee to enter the lake. They rent pedal boats, kayaks, pontoon boats and skiffs. The guy at the marina was very helpful and professional. Lots of people go on the weekend. No swimming at this lake.

The area around the lake was beautiful. Lake itself was quiet and serene. Enjoyed walking around and taking pictures. While we missed them, several friends have great bear pictures to share.

Lake Mary is the nicest of the lakes on this loop and probably the most fishable as it is good for boats or has lots of shore line fishing if you dont mind scaling some rocks to get to your perfect spot. We caught a few, but got too cold to stay.

It is a small lake perfect for kayaks and fishing. Cold water, but very clear. Nice store and launch that wasnt too mover priced. A lovely spot.

If you have never been to Mammoth, I highly recommend going to see Lake Mary, even if you just go see it. If you have more time, you can fish on the banks, walk around the lake, wade in the water, or participate in any of the water activities. There are 2 marinas that rent boats (the Lake Mary Marina...
