Very beautiful. Glad we stopped here at the end of our trip. Totally worth it after braving the hot geysers all day.

Post Season, snow on the grounds, and birds on the lake. Aspens in fall splendor, Pines scenting the air. Heaven.

Very peaceful setting to look over while having a drink at the Lake hotel or the Yellowstone hotel. No loud speed boats or water skiers here! The water very cold but there is plenty of bird life.

Beautiful lake, so large! We took the scenic cruise which was very informative and interesting. Gives you a unique view of the lake. There is a path near the Lake Hotel which you can walk along the lake, very nice in the evenings!

Plan to spend 3-4 days seeing everything the Tetons and Yellowstone have to offer. The natural wonders are amazing and the Park is not that crowded after labor day.

It's a big lake. There's lots of big lakes. There are some very nice mountains to the east which make for a beautiful view from the westside of the lake along the road but otherwise . . . .

This lake sits an an altitude of about 7,500 feet,. It is clear and very large. It is easy to drive around the lake and take in some of the many special places to visit in Yellowstone.
