Not my favourite bit of the Tetons. The view of the mountains is ok, but to me its just a big lake. The dam with the water bursting out of the end of the lake was the best bit. Definitely stop here as you pass.

We stopped at the Jackson Dam and walked around there. The lake in general is clear and dramatic against the jagged, rugged mountains. There are plenty of picnic areas and lots of boating. Great place!

You can't help but enjoy the beauty of the lake. When you take the Lake cruise you will get a lot of history about the lake, the tribes the different type of settlers that came to the area and if children are with you they will enjoy it as well. They are very safety conscience with all that are aboard.

Booked a guided fishing trip at the Colter Bay Marina. Captain Pat (who is also a part-time chef) guided us to nice catches of lake trout which fed our entire group of 12. He filleted the fish on the boat and even gave us some delicious recipe suggestions for the preparation of the fish later that night.

We found this to be a good place to make arrangements for activities as boating, float trips in this area. You can also make arrangements at Colter Bay. Jackson Lake Lodge has a grill, lounge, nice dining area with a great view of the Tetons. It can feel however very congested with the crowds here.

Clear water with the Teton as a back drop. Try the boat ride or breakfast on the island, both are pretty cool.

What a feat of engineering. Take a few minutes, whether you are an engineer or not, and go experience what has been accomplished by thought, calculation and determination. Bring your camera, and possibly hearing protection. We were there after a rain and the percussion was pounding!
