This lake is awesome to say the least! It is worth the drive just to see it! It is just beautiful! A true natural wonder!

Yellowstone Lake is very nice but it is around by Grant Village and this area is not as awesome as the Loop Road up near Old Faithful. Skip it....Depending upon how many days you will be spending at Yellowstone.

We drove by the lake several times throughout our two day stay in Yellowstone and was always drawn in by the water and the sunlight falling on it.

We vacation each year and always select Grayline Tours. They always provide great service. The Yellowstone tour with Miguel Gaviria on July 24, 2014 was wonderful. We can't say enough about Miguel. He started off out of the gate very professional and welcoming. His friendly and courteous attitude was exceptional. Miguel asked us what did we expect to see and... More

This boat tour was narrated by a park ranger who was at the top of her game. She had a lot of information to offer. The boat ride was wonderful about an hour and a half out on the water. The boat held about 40 people and it was very comfortable for both adults and children. Everyone was friendly. The... More

Rather than taking an expensive lake tour, we took a ranger tour which was very inexpensive. The tour was a little over an hour and the ranger was informative. Great way to see the lake without spending a lot of money

Travelled mid-July, 2014. Middle aged couple. $25 fee to park includes Teton's and Yellowstone for seven days. Great deal! Weather was perfect. Wore long sleeves & light weight vest and pants in the morning & evenings. Afternoons perfect for short sleeves and shorts. They do not have air-conditioning in their lodging. However, we were only in our room in the... More

We saw the lake from the shore as well as from a one-hour sightseeing boat tour. We'd like to have fished, but that was not in the plan this trip. The lake is quite large. Apart from the hotel and a couple of outbuildings there is absolutely NOTHING manmade to see along the shores. The water is COLD ... so... More

Easy 3 mile hike through meadows, pine trees and along the Yellowstone River. Watch out for the mosquitoes when in the meadows and along the River. The view of the river looks a bit like Monterey. You can also see yellow bellied marmots out by the point. This is a loop trail which we really liked.
