Owner description: Calm backwater in the Snake River in Grand Teton Nat'l. Park.
Reviewed July 11, 2013

We rented canoes and kayaks at Dornan's and paddled from just below the Jackson Lake Dam to Pacific Creek, thru the Oxbow. What a peaceful and beautiful trip. We saw beaver, eagles, geese, huge trout. Unfortunately, we did this midday, so didn't see alot of the other wildlife we'd have seen if it was in the morning or early evening. But the view of the Tetons and the calm clear water made it something I wouldn't have missed.

Beautiful pictures are taken here. If you go early in the morning as the sun is coming up the sky has a pink tint along with the blue. Also in the fall it's not uncommon to see moose hanging out here.

This is a must-see... it is just an incredible view of the Tetons. Would be a great place to have a picnic or just sit and enjoy the view. We saw a bear close by. Any photo with any camera will be a keeper.

This is a great area to look for the 399 and her cubs. They like to hang out here at times. Even if the bears are not around, it's a pretty area to hike around and seems to attract a fair amount of wildlife.

Probably one of the most photographed places around, especially in the Tetons, magnificent view and good area for animal viewing. Saw beaver and a grizzly on our stay.
