Love every lake

Went to every single lake and they are all great. They all have boats and kayaks for rent and have plenty of fishermen on them. I was looking for a spot to have a picnic and... read more

Went to every single lake and they are all great. They all have boats and kayaks for rent and have plenty of fishermen on them. I was looking for a spot to have a picnic and since we did not find one, we just sat on some rocks. At the end of the drive in lake George, we found a... More

Whether fishing, kayaking, running, or walking there is never a lack of activities. A lodge and campgrounds are right there within walking distance. Lots of cross country and elite .runners up here in July and August. Several trailheads close by to take you up to Mammoth Pass, Mammoth Crest, various lakes, or Duck Pass.

This is a very scenic lake, beautiful surrounding mountain tops, lots of tress, and things to do. There are bike & hiking paths, I saw people riding horses, from the pack station a little ways down the road, a couple of places to eat, and of course the water action, people fishing, boating/kayaking, float tubing and paddle suffering. Wonderful place... More

The Sierra rise precipitously and magnificently from deep blue lakes (Mary, Marie, Upper and Lower Twin, Horseshoe and I believe George). They're dotted with float fishermen and small row boats, a few brightly colored kayaks. The bike paths have groups of families enjoying exploring paved trails. There's a pack station for horseback rides, unlimited number of scenic hiking trails and... More

Very nice place but expensive. Food not as spicy as I like. Employees very nice. If you get there 5-6 pm the sunset and lakes are beautiful? I will be back and I live in ML. So I am always looking for changes. I like a view, windows, and nice people who know the food. I like unusual preparations

We took a day trip to Lake Mary via the town trolley from The Village with the goal to rent a boat. We arrived early and after a quick discussion we rented a motorboat. I thought a canoe would be more peaceful for our family ... I was right. The motorboat was fine, kinda fun, but the lake is so... More

We visited during the week and while parking was pretty full around the lake we did find spots open along Lake Mary Road. Beautiful vistas and peaceful places to sit and read. Lots of hiking trails. The road around the lake is a bit narrow but most drivers are careful. We had our headlights on just to give us an... More
