It's a beautiful lake. Very relaxing and many spots to fish. Not overcrowded at all. Friendly adorable chipmunks ready for any food available.

“Stunning views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

Mammoth lakes is full of beautiful lakes and mountains. With many beautiful views. But this lake with a very interesting story may be the best of all. Absolutely spectacular well worth the short drive from Mammoth. Very windy much like some of the other lakes in the area.

“Easy Circuit Walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

A great way to enjoy the outdoors for all. The picnic areas are close to the carpark and the walking track is well marked and easy to follow. Enjoy the circuit and try to spot some fish along the way!
