“Magnificent”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

The wonder of this lake must be taken in when in Yellowstone. It is huge and offers spectacular views from every angle. You can see steam coming out in one place and distant snow capped mountains in another. Cross the continental divide and take in all the surrounding views. Beautiful!

“This might be an unpopular stance but...”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

...this lake was boring. Nothing to do and it's really no more amazing than the rest of yellowstone national park. Yes, it is a sight to see, but I suggest Lamar valley or one of the other hot spots. As far as I could tell, there was nothing to do- no boats to take out, just a little fishing, but really not spectacular.

“Yellowstone”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Yellowstone national park is one place you need to visit once in your lifetime...it's like being in a zoo that has no cage, the animals just roam about...Yellowstone is more than just one park, but three or four different parks in one, with geyser, canyon, valley and a big lake..but it's the bison that make the trip, to see big bison up close and walking around is amazing.....

“never will want to leave”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Whether it is a drive through on your way to someplace else, or a long stay in the park, watching the sun rise or set on the lake will be a bit of heaven forever etched in your mind. Should be on everyone's bucket list.

“Beautiful lake”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This is a large lake that leads to Yellowstone River. Beautiful, smooth lake. You have a great view from the Fishing Bridge Visitor's Center.
