The lake is really huge and big. Surrounded by trees and ferns. I would prefer to go to the grant lodge for a good view of Yellowstone Lake.

People forget that this s part of a caldera of a volcano and that's it's the largest alpine lake above 7,000 feet. Besides those two unique factors this lake is just beautiful and offers many different vantage points in the park.

You can view this lake from Fish Bridge and also from West Thumb Geyser basin. At the Fish Bridge, you can walk down to the lake to wade in the water.

We rented a boat and spend the day motoring around the lake and island. We even casted our fishing lines into the lake for fun. The lake is beautiful and very big.
