We had a great time this summer renting paddle boards and taking them out on the lake for a couple of hours. A beautiful spot to spend time on the water and enjoy the mountain scenery.

Lake Mary (and the other lakes around Mammoth Lakes) are truly beautiful. I visited after a trip to Death Valley and it was a welcome breath of fresh cool air. The scenery is amazing and I recommend walking around the lakes to take it all in.

I was up here in the fall and the trees had turned yellow and orange. I will be back next summer for hiking and fishing.

You can cross country ski around lake Mary in the winter. You can also walk around it but not on the groomed parts which is tricky if has a lot of snow. You can boat on it in the winter. It's is majestic from the middle of the lake. People fish from the shoreline. Can't comment on that

We have stayed at Lake Mary at Crystal Crag Lodge for many years. There is a paved road that circles the lake which is great for walking and bicycle riding. There is always fishing and you can even rent paddle boards. What is also great, there are very few bugs.

I've been a bad tourist. I must confess, I've been visiting Mammoth Lakes for YEARS and never once did I take time away to visit the beautiful lakes for which the community is named. I have spent countless hours on the bike paths and on the slopes, but failed to visit the awesome lakes. This is worth a trip unto... More

The Mammoth Lakes area has got a few of lovely lakes, and Lake Mary is one of the most beautiful. I recommend sitting close to it and relaxing for a while in this peaceful place.

We hiked in the snow down Lake Mary Loop Road while it was closed for ski season, awesome outdoors experience. Mountain views, the rangers patrol it for safety too.

One afternoon we walked to Lake Mary. It is a beautiful 1.5 mile walk along a groomed road that is shared by cross country skiiers. It is a constant gentle grade, so no special hiking skills needed!
