The lake is so beautiful that I regret spending only one afternoon there. The water is very clean. Many good places to take pictures surrounding the lake. The best place might be the West Thumb.

We stayed in the Lake Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed walking by the lake. It's one of the prettiest spots in Yellowstone.

This is a wonderful lake and it's huge! The best viewing spot is on the East end off the park. This an amazing lake and is impossible to miss during your visit. Most beautiful lake in the world.

This was one of the most beautiful spots in all of Yellowstone! We weren't even planning on going but we needed to use the restroom so we stopped. It is a gorgeous site, and we sat on a picnic table outside the general store to eat a snack because we didn't want to leave. Beautiful!

The lodge has a "cafe" type restaurant with not a lot of great choices but it will fill you up. We also just wondered around the area and took some pictures. A nice end to a busy... More

This is by far the most beautiful place that I've ever seen in person. You can look almost anywhere, anytime and have your breath taken away. And the animals that are around won't disappoint.
