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...

If you want to get out on a Lake, Lake Mary has several options (to rent); motor boats, kayak, stand-up paddle boards, paddle boats, etc. We were there over the 4th of July weekend, so it was crowded. Great view of the mountains surrounding the lake.

We hiked around the lake and saw many people fishing, paddle boats, ect. If our daughter was older (17 months) we would have done more water activities. It's very pretty up in this area.

Mary Lake Marina was a nice little marina that had ample room for our outdoor party. The lake was nice, and the fishing was superb from what I hear. The major downside was that the lake wasn't very big. Actually, It didn't seem a whole lot larger than a pond.

Drive the loop, see all the lakes in the basin at Mammoth, get out of the car, walk a little,listen to the wind blow through the pine trees, hear the waters lap the shores, not just Lake Mary, but go see all of them, they are all close by, and bring your camera!

When visiting Mammoth Lake I highly recommend taking the tour of the Alpine Lakes. All of them are really beautiful and worth the time to see them all. Lake Mary is my favorite.

The lake is beautiful. You can fish, bike and hike around the lake. So quiet and just in awe with so much natural beauty.
