It was one of the best moments in our trip. Totally recommend to rent a boat and enjoy the magical atmosphere around. Watch out - water is cold ;)

Good looking lake, didn't fish or camp, but it was nice to visit. There are areas to walk up and fish from shore all over the lake. They also have a marina, with boat rentals.

We drove this loop in July 2017 when lakes were full & waterfalls at their peak. Paradise! Lots of stops to get out & walk over a bridge & get different perspectives. Gorgeous!

While we were staying in Mammoth Lakes, CA we decided to visit all the lakes. This particular one has tons of activities, like boats, paddle boarding, canoeing, kayaking, etc. The guys that run the activities on the lake are very helpful. Excellent for family outings!

It was just gorgeous this past month. Water gushing everywhere and snow still on the ground. Around every turn you have to get out and take photos it is so beautiful.

Lots of people are there. There is a dock that rents all sorts of boats, canoes etc. There is fishing from the shore line and that is fairly tranquille. But it is popular and well used. I don't remember if there are... More
