Beautiful!

This is a beautiful lake with lovely views of Crystal Crag. A lot of people rent boats and fish there. We just took a picnic and sat at the edge enjoying the views.

We went for a walk around the lake and every moment was another picture worthy one :) It was so beautiful and definitely a place to make sure to have time for walking around and just enjoying nature!

We rented a pontoon boat, did a little fishing and just plain enjoyed the day. We had 9 aboard. There was a cover for shade and the guys at the dock were very helpful. The mountain views are amazing! The water is very cold, so only one brave guy went in.

9000 feet means cool to cold. This summer 2016 has construction noise. walk around the lakes, find a place to sit and read or just hang out. others will discuss fishing.

Get a great workout by running, walking, or biking with stunning vistas of the lakes, Crystal Crag, the town of Mammoth, by taking Lakes Basin Path. If you decide to hike a different trail, pay attention to the signage. Then, go exploring!

Although we really couldn't find a good spot at this lake we have caught limits on trout here in past visits. Try and fish closer to inlets and streams that feed the lake.

I have been coming to Lake Mary for 40 years and each year I enjoy it even more. This last May we caught our limits and saw three bald eagles! Wonderful lake to rest on the shoreline as well and enjoy the sites.

Great for fishing and boating. You can rental a boat and be on the lake. It has a really beautiful view too.
