Sunny days are spectacular at Jackson Lake because the Tetons are so fabulously reflected in the lake. Take your camera, and take your time. Walk a nearby trail, stop to see Jackson Lake Lodge, walk up Lunch Tree Hill behind the lodge, and enjoy the day. We liked staying at Signal Mountain Lodge so that we could enjoy views of... More

Many classic Teton pictures are taken across the lake. I also saw my first White Pelican on the lake. I did not know there were fresh water pelicans. You can also take a dinner cruise, sign up at Jackson Lake Lodge or rent various boats from Signal Mountain Lodge. They also both have restaurants and pubs.

I come from Colorado and love the San Juan mountains but these are unbelievable. They are mesmerizing. So many trails , lakes waterfalls and things to see. May be a small park but so worth it.

My family and I enjoyed the beauty surrounding us while taking a boat trip on Jackson Lake. We sat outside on the back of the boat to get a real good view, unfortunately if you do decide to sit in the back you won't be able to hear the tour guide and my get a headache from the diesel fumes....

We rented a runabout for 2 hours, and the views on Jackson Lake are terrific. Saw two bald eagles and had a chance to dock at one of the islands for a swim. A highly recommended experience and then had the outdoor BBQ buffet at Jackson Lodge next to the swimming pool. It was a great experience.

My husband and I drove from the North end of the lake to the South end. Every single stop we made, we got a better and better view. This lake is simply breathtaking with the mountain range in the background. I highly recommend making every stop you can to get different views of the lake. Each view is different and... More

Great location for canoeing...enjoy the peaks from water level. Standing up paddle is okay, if not too windy.

Great boat ride. The Captain and the narrator were spectacular. The dinner is already set up for you on Elk Island. Tables are set, and bbq's are cooking. Buffet style. Steak, trout, potatoes, fresh fruit, cowboy coffee around the campfire and a great apple dessert! The setting is beautiful, right on the edge of Elk Island, Resident deer walking by.... More

Along the highway, there are mulitiple stops for picnics, photos, or just the occasional sigh and awe of the majestic peaks. Jackson Lake lodge and Colter Bay Village are on the eastern edge of the lake off the highway. If you don't stop and take a look around, you definitely won't see the beauty of the area.
