Explore Jenny Lake, WY

Originally 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.

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.

brings inter-tubes

Bought some $5 inter-tubes at Walmart.... worth it. Camped at Jenny Lake and went tubing and chilled on the lake every evening.

We want to acknowledge and thank the past, present, and future generations of all Native Nations and Indigenous Peoples whose ancestral lands we travel, explore, and play on.
