Just the two of us went out w/ Jorge on a horseback ride around one side of Convict Lake. On the way to the lake, we passed grazing mule deer which added to the experience. Half of the ride was on a ridge looking down at the lake and then we rode down to the shore, dismounted, snacked, and took pictures. On the way back, Jorge took a picture of us w/ the lake and the mountains in the background. An enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours...

One of the most stunning views I've ever seen. We loved Convict Lake and would recommend it to anyone travelling east of Yosemite (especially during a shutdown!) Unfortunately, due to the shutdown the toilets were closed, meaning that we couldn't stay there as long as we could have. Beautiful, beautiful place.

Stayed in a cabin here and got snowed in! It was great! The nature trails surrounding the lake take your breath away and the beauty that comes from the lake when it's iced over and surrounded by snow is unreal. The restaurant has great service and the food is 5star-even the pizza. The bartender also had his own twist on cocktails, this is a must see, must stay at place.

Convict Lake offers many outdoor activities and a nice camp ground. A four star restaurant and a well stocked mini-market are on the lake site. Trout fishing is good either on the lake or the river flowing into and out of the lake.

Nice walking trail around the lake. Nice fall colors. Bring your fishing pole and picnic basket and enjoy the day.
