Lake Mary is a beautiful mountain lake. The area is peaceful and quiet. The views are spectacular. The drive to Lake Mary is especially beautiful also.

Beautiful high mountain lake with great fishing, boating and paddle boarding. NO WATER. SKIING. We foster rent a canoe and paddle around the lake in the early morning, before the winds come up. Views are beautiful. Lots of activities, great for kids. This is a high mountain lake so it is cold. We love it. Watched a lady almost land... More

If you want to getaway from the hectic life of city, well, conratulations, you have found the paradise here. A beautiful, serene, peaceful... we spent all day, just doing nothing but eating, fishing, napping, and eating some more. We will definately comeback next year for sure.

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.
