Big Lake
Sep 2021
We went up to the overlook and I was able to do a panorama of the entire lake with the snow capped mountains behind. It had snowed the day before we got there so it added to the experience.

My favorite day in Yellowstone was spent here!

Such a beautiful, tranquil lake. Huge!

We started in the West Thumb section of the lake, hopping out and roaming the shoreline while taking a look at some of the hot springs that are formed around the lake. But we drove all the way up the western side of the lake and along the Yellowstone River and it’s Grand Canyon. Just gorgeous!

There are picnic areas to stop and enjoy, plus the Canyon Lodge is right on the lake. SoectCular!

Yellowstone is such an incredible National Park. While visiting, you have to spend some time on Yellowstone Lake. The tranquility of being here will make all of your cares just melt away.

Very serene lake
Aug 2021
We stayed at Grant Village. Each night we'd take our beverages down to the lake and either sit at a picnic table or sidewalk wall and look over the lake. I will keep those memories forever. The sand is course and black. The mountains in the background were beautiful. We saw canoes and other small boats. Water was chilly---most likely would not go swimming even on a hot day.

Too big and boring

I stayed at lake hotel for 2 days because I read all the high praises. I was rather disappointed. Hotel is big, lake is huge that you can not see any bounds.

kind of neat that the lake has a black sand beach, at least where we stopped, but it's just a lake, nothing to special

Grand view - one of the most spectacular things I have ever seen. The overlook views of the falls were amazing, too. Definitely recommend it.

Beautiful views

We enjoyed stopping a few times in Yellowstone to view beautiful Yellowstone Lake. Our first view was at the Butte overlook and our last was at the West Thumb Geyser Basin. The water is so clear and blue and with the Teton range in the background it was just magnificent.
