Added by Daniel Brittain

This Place has the summer swimming/fishing hole written all over it. Beautiful clear mountain water and Jagged Teton backdrop.

To get here, Is very easy. Heading north out of Jackson Wyoming, just follow the signs once you enter Grand Teton National Park for the route to Jenny Lake. You can make this a day trip for hiking the lake or you can grab a spot on its shore line for a day of swimming and relaxation. If you're looking to fish, this lake has tons just waiting to be caught. A trip to the Tetons isn't complete without a day on the lake.

Jewel of Wyoming

Jenny Lake is one of the Crown Jewels of Grand Teton NP. Paddle or catch a boat ride is how we enjoyed the clear waters of the area. There is also great hiking nearby all with views of the mountains. Trout fishing is also a great pastime here in the summer.

Amazing hike but watch for bears

This is a great place to hike around and explore but be sure to watch out for bears they can be around any corner.

Beautiful!

Gorrrrgeous views! And so much to do - you can hike, relax, SUP, kayak, canoe, or get a floatie and float around. So relaxing and scenic.

Chilly Swim

Jenny Lake is a great place to check out an alpine lake with mountain views. Bring a wetsuit for an open water swim.

Family Friendly!

My favorite part about this lake? It's accessible. We took a family trip to the Tetons and having something that my grandmother (who's had both knees and both hips replaced) can do with us made the whole trip.
