Summer

The fun doesn’t stop in Mammoth when the snow melts. There are so many summertime activities to enjoy; it’s difficult to list them all. Come experience the wilderness and beauty of the Sierra Nevada Mountains this summer. Fishing, Horseback Riding, Golfing and Mountain Biking are just a few of the activities to enjoy. Our guide lists more information for planning your summertime activities. Some sports and recreational activities listed are open all year round, but it is always a good idea to check with a local official or Ranger to make sure the attraction is open. Be sure to check in with the Visitor Center at the entrance of town for current conditions. Although the great variety of summer activities in Mammoth Lakes could keep you busy for a week or two, there are also several day trips worth investigating. For starters, take a drive up the beautifully scenic Highway 120 to Yosemite National Park. Mono Lake is another spectacular day trip to consider. Visit a ghost town – Bodie is a former California mining town. It’s no question that winter is awesome in Mammoth. But as the locals say, “Come to Mammoth for the winter but stay for the summer”.
