Lake Mary Campground

Lake Mary Campground is one of the most popular campgrounds in Mammoth Lakes, partly because of its convenient location. The campground is on either side of the road at the northwest end of Lake Mary. Closely spaced sites are around four loops. The campground is within walking distance of the lake, and some sites have a view of the water. Fishing is excellent and two marinas offer boat rentals and have launch ramps. There is no swimming in the lake, and the speed limit is 10 MPH. Many anglers like to use float tubes.

The 48 campsites may be reserved, and all of them can accommodate trailers, RVs, and tents. The campsites closest to the lake are arranged with shared parking spaces, making them most inviting for two families that might be able to reserve a pair of sites side by side. Otherwise some of the campsites farther back from the lake have a little more separation. Campsites 46 - 50 are designated as hike-in sites, requiring only a short walk from your parking slot to the site.
