It was very windy the day we went, so not sure if my review is accurate. It was very pretty and looked like a lot of fisherman may go to.

Stunning vistas. The lake is a tranquil place. Many were fishing even in the blustery wind. There is camping and picnic areas as well.

My wife and two little pups went to visit lake Mary amongst other sites up on the mountain. The weather was perfect this time of year. The lake was gorgeous as it had a walking or bicycle riding path that wrapped around her which was in plain site, easy to get to. There are little cut outs to park along... More

Gorgeous lake tucked in the mountains above Mammoth. Great fishing and boating. The lake is big, so even when it's crowded, you should be able to find your "own spot" for fishing.

We used to camp near Lake Mary and I've always loved it. It's off the beaten track, near Tamarack Lodge. Lovely spot for boating, hiking, horseback riding.

The climb from the parking lot is not easy, considering the fact that this is over 9000 feet. The road is very nice and so is the lake. At the lake it was very windy and cold....

We were surprised by the size of this lake as it was higher and further up the road from twin lakes. It has a marina for renting boats and a sporting shop. It is certainly in a beautiful setting

We stopped here on a day when the temperature was 34 and wind blowing about 20 mph. A couple of people fishing said they were catching a lot. It would be nice to visit again when the weather is decent.

Lake Mary is always our go to fishing spot in Mammoth. The lake is large, beautifully situated under Mammoth Crest and Crystal Crag and is served by two well equipped marinas. From pontoon boats to stand up paddle boards they have it all. The prices are a bit better at the Lake Mary Marina vs Pokonobe. Lake Mary Marina is... More

I love trout fishing in the Mammoth Lakes basin and Lake Mary is the largest lake. There are rental boats available at marinas on both ends of the lake. Great trout fishing from boats or the bank for rainbows, brook and brown trout. Not a particularly deep lake but enough depth for trolling. The Lake Mary Store has an impressive... More
