Home to over 50 campsites, Lake Mary Campground is located in the Mammoth Lakes Basins area. At an elevation of 8,900 feet, the camps (located on both sides of the road near Lake Mary’s northwest end) are serene and beautiful. The campground is dog-friendly and family-friendly.
Nature lovers with relish in the landscape of Lark Mary and its adjoining areas. The most noticeable attraction is, of course, the many pine trees standing tall. And you also have peaks as high as 10,000 feet in the John Muir Wilderness. Along with numerous species of fish and birds, there are also black bears and mountain lions to watch out for!
Lake Mary provides you with four loops of campsites located really close to each other. Located 5 to 10 minutes from the town of Mammoth Lakes, the campground is within walking distance of the lake. However, not all campsites offer views of the water. Amenities include campfire rings, tables, an onsite fuel station, ATM, laundry, and dining facilities are also located within 10 miles of the campsite.
You’ll enjoy fishing trout in Lake Mary, which is also popular for its brook and rainbow fishing as well. Wading or swimming are not allowed, so fishing and campfires are pretty much your main activities. As you enjoy your camping trip, be sure to keep the camp area clean – pack some poop bags when visiting with Fido. While there are no hiking trails on the campsite, but there are several nearby.
There are several interesting trails of varying lengths nearby and you can enjoy both day hiking as well as backpacking trails with fellow campers (or even your canine friend) into the John Muir Wilderness! And if not, you can always relax around the campfire by the pristine clear waters of Lake Mary.
