Beautiful canyon resort. Great hiking and fishing. Easy hiking road up to beaver ponds and water falls. Have been coming here for years.

We returned for another fun day at Lundy Lake We enjoyed trout fishing. There is good hiking trails. The water level was high and people were going boating. We were there on a beautiful sunny day June 2018.

While far from the most beautiful of the 395 corridor lakes, Lundy Lake is still worth the drive. There is a quaint store at the back of the road too.

Took a side trip to Lundy Lake. I have heard from many what great fishing there is at Lundy. The camp grounds were really not condusive for a motorhome but a small trailer or camper, Great! There is also a small lodge their with cabins.

We hiked past ponds and along a creek. Very beautiful going up the canyon. The trailhead is close to Lee Vining.

Lundy canyon is drop dead gorgeous. I have gone on both a bird walk and a history walk here in the past month, and both were very well done, both are offered by a combo of the state park service and the Mono Lake Committee. I have heard the fall color here is stunning, and plan to go back for that. There is so much hiking to do, up the canyon there are views galore and you can keep going to Helen Lake and the Saddlebag Lake Loop, or you can head up the mountain to May Lundy Mine and beyond.

The lake is big for fisher people, why can't they clean up their garbage, hooks and line and little jars and bags of half used bait. The forest service campground is very nice, along the stream flowing out of Lundy Lake, and the toilets are well kept. But the campground itself is full of trash and litter and needs to be cleaned up regularly.

Do NOT go into the little Lundy Lake Resort "store", unless you want to be treated badly and laughed at by local people huddled in a circle sitting inside. I am always saddened when I find a business that relies on visitors and tourists, which is staffed by people who treat those customers like dirt because they know they can get away with it. Such a stain on the beauty of Lundy Canyon these people are, do NOT give them your business.

We have been to Lundy Lake numerous times This time we were there in August 2017.
Its a very scenic lake. Its fun for boating, hiking, and fishing The views of the mountains are beautiful.

The drive from highway 395 to the lake is paved, although on the east side the last part is gravel. There is free parking by the lake.

This is a beautiful canyon but recreation sites are heavily used, poorly maintained with no investment in decades by neither the USFS, Mono County and the private resort owners. There is a lot of human feces/TP flowers and dog feces problem along the south side of the lake left by fisherman who don't want to make the trip to the pit toilet several hundred yards away. Also, there is a fair amount of this along other trails at certain times of the year. Deters from your experience and there are other magificent east side canyons that you can do better with.

This lake sits in a glacial canyon and is beautiful no matter what time of year. The road in can be problematic during the winter so check ahead. The lakes level is determined by the amount of winter snow and the demands of LADWP. So depending on the time of year can be full to the brim or a "pond". Never had a bad day fishing here
