About Convict Lake, Mammoth Lakes

Usually when a mountain lake is this dramatically beautiful it is also hard to access. This is practically at the doorstep of the Mammoth Yosemite Airport. The lake of crystal clear waters is named for an 1871 event when some convicts escaped, and Robert Morrison was killed fighting them at Convict Creek. The nearby Mount Morrison is named after him. The activities here are straightforward. You may fish for Rainbow trout, German brown trout, and sucker fish in the water. Take a boat, canoe, kayak or float tube out into the water from the marina. You can hike the trail circling the lake. For accommodation, there is both a resort and a campground. Try the continental cuisine at the restaurant at Convict Lake.
