Kayaking on Lake George

Do you have Boating Experiences you'd like to share? Find out How!

  • Lake George is the highest road-accessible lake in the Mammoth Lakes Basin. With its clear Alpine water and close-up views of Crystal Crag and the Mammoth Crest, it's one of the most scenic places in the area to paddle a kayak. There's a small marina offering watercraft rentals, sundries and a boat ramp for easy put-in. There are a number of trails that start at Lake George, so the parking area can be crowded. But the lake itself is generally quiet and peaceful, with great potential for wildlife viewing along the shore, from bears and deer to bald eagles and osprey, and good fishing if you're so inclined.
