Excellent camping sites though only water is available. Mary is a high Sierra lake and you should take your time moving around if you are from lower elevations. Fishing can be excellent. Boats are available from the little store. Bears can be a problem if...More

Went for an early morning drive here in August and we were not disappointed. Beautiful views from every side of the lake. Such a peaceful place to be and would be a perfect camping spot. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Beautiful lake about 5 miles from Mammoth Lake village. Quite busy on a Sunday. There is a scenic drive right or walk round the lake and there are boats to hire too.

We saw people of all ages on the trails around Lake Mary and that was in the winter snow. If the roads are open, it's an easy drive and there are picnic tables near the road and parking. There are views of the lake and... More

We hiked on Lake Mary Road in the snow! Mammoth got so much snow this winter, so I imagine there still could be snow at the higher elevations. In late May, I think the roads will be open. You may want to check the mammoth... More
