About Mammoth Pool Recreation Area

One of many destination points is Mammoth Pool, a man-made reservoir on the San Joaquin River that is 5 miles long. This area offers some of Sierra National Forest’s most unique and splendid beauty with recreational activities that include camping, picnicking, hiking, and fishing.

Hidden gem

Escape to paradise in the Sierra Nevada Mountains where adventure and relaxation combine to create a way of life that is unobtainable anywhere else. Pitch your tent along the San Joaquin River in the heart of the mountains, then meander along a pristine trail through Ponderosa Pines and Cedars to the beautiful Mammoth Pool Reservoir. Spend the day playing mermaid in the crystal water or relaxing by shore, then head back to your campsite for the best night’s sleep you’ll ever have.
