The soul-stirring scenic forty mile drive through a dense forest on a smoothly paved road to Mammoth Pool Reservoir was a pleasant relief after just driven to TKayaking Mammoth Pool Reservoirhomas Edison Lake. If you have ever gone to Thomas Edison Lake, you will know what I mean! For those of you who want to be a part of nature, there are campsites deep in the woods along the road on the way to this reservoir.

My first glimpse of Mammoth Pool Reservoir was from the Mile High Vista Point, which offers an awesome 180 degree view of this magical place, unusual dome-shaped rock formations, and a dam that gives you the feeling you could paddle to the edge of the world and fall-off.

Kayak Fishing: Mammoth Pool Reservoir offers superb kayak angling opportunities for rainbow, eastern brook, and German brown trout. Fishing is prohibited on the from May 1st until June 16th for migrating deer.
