Mammoth in its brightest hues 

Mammoth Lakes in the fall is made for picture-perfect moments. With the bright hues in red, orange, yellow, and gold, the landscape of Mammoth is the background of remarkable stories and anecdotes. The best time to visit and see the magnificent views is from mid-September to mid-October. This is the time when the colors are the most vivid. 

Sightseeing in Mammoth Lakes 

Sightseeing in Mammoth Lakes is perfect during the fall because the crowd is lesser. Usually, tourists flock the place during the summer months for the many activities they can do there. People go on geocaching, biking, running, hiking, among others. During winter, crowds come back again for the winter activities such as snowboarding and skiing. If you are the type of person who just wants to enjoy a relaxing downtime, then fall in Mammoth Lakes is the best for you. You can capture incredible photos without waiting for crowds to clear out.  

RV camping in fall 

Make your stay more special by going RV camping. Since there are fewer people, you will have more spots to choose from on where to park your RV. At night, you can hear trees brushing against each other from the soft wind. In the morning, you will see painting-like views from your RV window.  

September tours 

Sightseeing tours are offered in September to take in guests who want to witness nature’s colorful display. The animals in the area also start to become dormant in preparation for winter. So, it will just be you and your friends savoring the place. Witness hundred-year-old aspen trees slowly shed their bright-colored leaves in time for the season change.  

Sights not to miss
