RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL IN MAMMOTH LAKES
NOTE: Face coverings are required throughout California in all indoor spaces and any outdoor spaces where social distancing of at least six feet is not possible. You must have a reservation in a hotel or campground before traveling to Mammoth Lakes.
As California begins to move through its multi-phase reopening plan, Mammoth Lakes is delighted to welcome guests back to our beautiful town and all of the recreation opportunities we cherish here. We know you’ve been spending lots of time at home and are eager to release yourself back into the wild. While the forest and mountains you know and love are the same, some etiquette and guidelines around travel and recreation have changed in light of COVID-19.
The town of Mammoth Lakes and its businesses are doing their part to keep guests, workers and the local community safe. You can learn more about state and local guidelines that are in place for the businesses you visit below. Our community also asks that guests do their part to keep our community safe in return by adhering to all travel and recreation guidelines as you begin to return to your favorite wild places in Mammoth Lakes.
Of course, being a responsible traveler isn’t only a covid-related topic. It also means taking sustainability into account when you visit these wild spaces. Before you head out on the trail, to camp, on the water or even around town, learn how to adventure sustainably.

The town of Mammoth Lakes and the hotels and lodging properties here are doing their part to keep guests, workers and the local community safe when the statewide stay-at-home order is lifted and it is safe to travel to Mammoth Lakes again. Our community also asks that guests do their part to keep our community safe in return by adhering to these safety and etiquette guidelines:
- Have a reservation before you travel to Mammoth Lakes
- Book lodging with only your immediate household
- Respect each hotel or lodging property’s safety regulations
- Allow only one member of your party to enter the lobby for check-in
- Protect staff and other guests by wearing a mask when you are in hallways, lobbies and other common areas
- Keep a physical distance of six feet from anyone outside of your immediate household, even if you are wearing a face covering
- Clean your hands often
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
- Cover coughs and sneezes
- Stay home if you are feeling sick
Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-33-20, and associated guidance of the California Public Health Officer, continue to apply statewide. These advise Californians to “avoid travelling long distances for vacations or pleasure as much as possible. This is to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Do not travel if you are sick, or if someone in your household has had coronavirus in the last two weeks. Do not travel with someone who is sick.
