Really beautiful lake. We were there to photograph and it didn't disappoint. Clear water, boating, fishing and a gourmet restaurant.

This is a great area for a family vacation. Hiking, boating, fishing something for everyone. Nice restaurant with some pretty good BBQ. You can rent a cabin for 2 to 16 family and/or friends. If you are looking for a place in the mountains away from town this is the place. Mammoth is only a 5 min drive away if you need that City fix.

Awesome fishing place. Rent a pontoon boat for an even more enjoyable time with plenty of room for family, friends and pets.

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

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.
