Excellent boating and paddleboarding opportunities abound at the numerous lakes in the Mammoth Lakes Basin and surrounding areas. During the summer months, these waters feature both recreational paddlers out for a scenic afternoon and fishermen trying to hook a trophy-size trout. Rent a board or boat and venture out on your own for a fun day on the water. A sunny summer or fall day on the water in the Mammoth Lakes area is a special experience for the whole family.
Jet Skiing & Motor Boating
Both Crowley Lake and Grant Lake allow waterskiing and jet skiing, however no rentals are available so you’ll need to bring your own watercraft. Grant Lake is also great for windsurfing. High mountain lakes can be very cold, so a wetsuit is recommended to help insulate your body from the chilly water.
Stand-Up Paddleboarding (SUP)
What’s not to love about stand-up paddleboarding in the Eastern Sierra? Beautiful scenery, calm waters, many lakes to explore—and no sharks.
In and around Mammoth Lakes are abundant opportunities for high-altitude SUP adventure. The Mammoth Lakes Basin and the June Lake Loop alone offer seven paddle-accessible lakes, but one of the favorites is paddleboarding on Horseshoe Lake
Bring your sunscreen, beach chair, picnic and board, and get ready to kick it at the beach, Eastern Sierra-style. Don’t have a board? No problem—there are several places to rent a SUP, saving you the trouble of having to lug all that extra gear around.
