Photograph a Sunrise at Jackson Lake Lake

Jackson Lake Viewpoint - Search Nearby - Added by Julie & Brian

Avoid the crowds at Oxbow Bend and enjoy this slice of solitude as you photograph the stunning morning light on the Tetons.

If you are hoping to capture sunrise with Mount Moran reflected in the water, but shudder at the thought of being elbow-to-elbow with other photographers, this location is for you. Not too far from Oxbow Bend, lies a clearing along Jackson Lake where you can capture a similar shot, sans crowds. To my surprise, no one else was here on this morning, so it was a welcomed change to have a few quiet moments with Brian as we watched the clouds turn pink and the sun illuminate the mountains. 

The location is off of Teton Park Road, just south of the Jackson Lake Dam. There is no official pullout, but there is space to park along the road. Another option is to park in the Jackson Lake Dam Picnic Area parking lot and walk.
