Description

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.

Reviews

Jenny Lake is a beautiful lake that is an awesome place to go swimming and enjoy amazing views of the Tetons. It's a great spot to take your family as well.

Last year Jenny Lake became one of my favorite places on Earth. The water is gorgeous, the mountain views are damn near perfect, the campsite is a 5 minute walk, you'll run into wildlife. I feel guilty any time I visit another lake. Sorry, Jenny. So sorry...you're just too far away!

Jenny Lake is absolutely gorgeous. It has something that everyone of any age or experience can do. You can stick around close to the parking lot and still get a great view, or you can venture deep into the woods and find a more secluded trail to hike. Pretty iconic in the Tetons.
