    This is one of the Mammoth area's hidden gems. Just off 395, you have to be alert to the turn-off. The clear, blue waters of Convict Lake reflect the steep, rocky mountains that partially surround it. There are camp grounds and cabins available for those who wish to avoid the Mammoth hubbub.

    An easy walk/hike around this spectacular lake. If you look carefully, you might just spot a bald eagle!

    Great dining and nice in summer to take a pontoon boat out at twilight with a nice picnic. Beautiful

    A beautiful lake with a fascinating history just across from the Mammoth airport. Nice campgrounds, a lodge, boating, fishing and a great trail around the lake for hikers. My half sister is getting married there next summer!

    I loved kayaking here. You can take a dip but it's cold! The trees are beautiful and there is a nice hike around the lake. Bring your dog. Have a picnic.

    Easy to get to, but not as scenic as Rock Creek.
