The place just keeps getting better. Well groomed trails, super friendly staff. We have been skiing here for 30+ years and it never gets old...

There is also Mamie lake the Twin lakes and Horseshoe lake. Horseshoe lake has an interesting aberration in that there was a large tree die off due... More

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.

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.
