If you're in to boating, canoes, kayaks, etc, this is the place for you. If you're driving YS you can't help but miss it, but it's no biggie if you're from the Pac NW. :o !!

It takes like 2 hours to drive just a part around Lake it's massive. You can get some good shots is wildlife. A lot of drivers so be careful when you park.

This lake is a lot larger than you would expect in a national park. The drive around the lake was beautiful and was one to enjoy.

Nice lake settled on an old volcano crater. Wide water extension one of whose best views is that from the Lake Hotel itself.

A very large and pretty lake to drive around heading for Old Faithful. As busy as it was that day, it moved along very well

We took a boat ride here to enjoy to lake and later went to the Lake store to take in the views. It is a bit less crowded and very pretty. The store also sells a lot of great essentials.

Loved the drive around Yellowstone Lake. We were fortunate to see several bison, antelope, mule deer and elk. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the view. Magnificent!!

Truly beautiful lake that goes on and on. We entered through the east gate where we encountered a real live cattle drive! Scenery is spectacular. Rode around it the next day for hours. Sunset was magical.

As others have said, it may be difficult to get there, but if you can (and tough it out), I suspect it would be really beautiful. No waterfalls, I imagine.
