If you would like to go on the cruises with lunch, you have to book before 8 am the same day so would recommend doing it the day before. I believe the cruise with lunch stops at Elk Island and takes about 2.5 hours; the regular cruise is 1.5 hours. We just took the cruise across the lake. No bathroom... More

We wanted to get on the lake and rented two single-person kayaks for 2 hours from Colter Bay Marina. It was an enjoyable experience and provided a different perspective of the area. One kayak rent was about $18 per hour. I strongly suggest getting to the Marina when it opens (8:00 am) or soon after. Kayaks and canoes are snatched... More

We were driving from West Yellowstone to the 42 mile Scenic Loop of the Tetons and stopped at the Jackson Lodge to view the Lake from the rear of the lodge. There was a lady with a full grown falcon giving a talk and it was quite interesting. The view of the mountains with the lake in front is majestic... More

The lake is beautiful and is a beautiful forefront to the amazing Grand Teton Mountains. It is in the Grand Teton National Park and offers many options for visitors.

It is hard to think that it could be any better........just a perfect place in nature. This might well be the gem of the park although the scenery was awesome everywhere. Be sure to make the stop here and also go into the Jackson Lake lodge, go up the stairway and soak in the view through the windows....then go out... More

we rented bikes at Adventure Sports at Moose Junction. The trail is a total of 16 miles! I never thought I could ride that much since I am not professional bike rider...but the trail is very easy to follow and the scenery is just gorgeous. The Grand Tetons are in your background the whole time and once you arrive to... More

Make the stop and check this out. Stop by the Jackson lake lodge, have a beer and a bite and bring your cameras because the view is unbelievable! Don't bother staying at the lodge but I recommend stopping by.

Have always wanted to experience the Tetons and finally got the chance. I was not disappointed. Mt Moran is magnificent and doing a water cruise is highly recommended.
