Where is “Old Mammoth”?
In Mammoth Lakes when one speaks of Old Mammoth they are generally referring to the neighborhood along Old Mammoth Road at the southern most end of Mammoth Lakes, particularly where Old Mammoth Road runs east and west from the Mammoth Creek Park to the Bluffs Neighborhood.
Old Mammoth is appropriately named as this was the original camp where mining took hold during the mid-1800’s. Most of the pioneers to the area started as gold prospectors, living up near the lakes basin of Mammoth Lakes; closer to the mines. Other settlers made their homes in the flatter areas what is now the Snowcreek Athletic Club. If you want to learn more about Mammoth’s history, visit the Mammoth Lakes Museum or Hayden Cabin
