Can be crowded, go early or during the week
Jun 2021
This very popular stop can be extremely crowded on weekends, so try to go here during the week, or as soon as the park opens.

Beautiful!

Our second day in the park and the weather was perfect. Sunny skies and not too cold. Awesome view of the lake and mountains. This is a must do when in the park.

Easy to get to but you’ll have a difficult view from the parking lot due to the trees.
Oct 2020
This is one of the first overlooks that you come to after leaving String Lake parking lots on Jennie Lake Road. It seems to be a fairly popular stop and was almost totally full when we stopped. There are some paths but you will have to move toward the lake or to the end of the parking lot to get an unobstructed view of the lake and the mountains.

Jenny Lake overlook is beautiful. Go early in the morning to get pictures when the lake is quiet and serene.

Gorgeous view!

Parking was in short supply but absolutely worth the effort. The view over Jenny Lake to the Tetons is simply gorgeous. We returned the following day to hike to Hidden Falls... we highly recommend both! Jenny Lake’s not to be missed.

Iconic Photo Location
Sep 2020
This is one of the iconic photo points in Grand Teton National Park, a must see.

It can be reached from the Visitors Center by taking a trail along the lake. We were driving north so we chose to drive to it, but parking in the lot near the overlook can be a problem in busy times.

Get there early to insure parking. The views are awesome from the lake and there are trails starting from here. This is a must see.

Crowds less likely here
Aug 2020
Best iconic view of the Tetons. The boat shuttle at the southern end of the lake is crazy crowded. Instead go to the NE corner of the one way Jenny Lake road. Less crowded and definitely worth waiting a few minutes for a parking spot.

Awesome views of Jenny Lake and the Tetons
Aug 2020
Great place to stop while driving on the Jenny Lake Loop. We were there very early in the morning so there was plenty of parking spaces. Wonderful views and photos ops with no effort. Great place to just stop and take a breath and relax.

hard climb but worth the view!
Jul 2020
on the other side of the lake you can climb past the falls-which are incredible- and make it to the overlook. There are also friendly chipmunks among the rocks to entertain you.
