These Alpine Lakes are spectacular but I cannot get reconciled to heavy traffic in such a heavenly place.

I went to Lake Mary to fish and hike. It was very beautiful, except for the overbearing presence of the over-regulated campground and marina. There attempts to block access and control everything, so they could get money out of everybody up there who juste wants to fish, hike, find some peace, and be left alone, degrades the whole experience. It's... More

We had an amazing bald eagle sighting while sitting at the side of the lake. Sat on the lake edge and watched this bald eagle fish from the lake and dodge the seagull that was taunting it.

Driving around the lake near sunset, we were treated to the first black bear we've ever seen in the wild. The young bear was most cooperative as it crossed the road to the lake, searching for fish for its supper. Many fishermen/women and a couple of leashed dogs kept a healthy distance away from the bear as many more of... More

Lake Mary is one of the larger Mammoth Lake's lake. Trout fishing is popular here. The scenery is fantastic and the campground is nice.

It's a beautiful lake. We rented a motor boat and rode around the lake. It was relaxing and boat was easily to be operated. My kids (age of 5 & 7) enjoyed the boat ride.

We rented a paddle board for the afternoon from Pokonobe Lodge and spent a wonderful afternoon paddling around the lake. Reminded me of being a kid at Lake Shasta - we had a picnic lunch and the kids took turns with the paddle board.

Found a spot on the shore and dropped our lines in. The scenery is amazing. We all relaxed and read while fishing. We saw another family along the shore lounging in their chairs and reading. When some families walked by we heard them comment that everybody is reading. It's just such a beautiful and peaceful setting it lends itself to... More

Main St. becomes Lake Mary Rd after you pass the village, but you enter a whole other world with spectacular, pristine lakes (including Lake Mary), towering peaks, and top-notch hikes, fishing, and camping. Get a map at the Visitors Center and explore the entire Lake Mary area--there are about 4 or 5 beautiful lakes all within the lakes area.

Beautiful. Hour rental went by quickly, bur the rental office was super casual. Wet seats and wet feet. Don't bring a camera on the kayak!
