This is a wonderful place to get some beautiful pictures of Mt. Moran. The view is wonderful with the reflection of the mountains on the water.

No matter the time of day you'll get stunning views of the Teton Range from this side of the road pullout.

People will tell you this is a great spot for sunrise, as the sun will perfectly light up the mountains. I'll agree with them, but the days I was there were very overcast, and pretty boring. If the water is calm you can get a nice reflection of the mountains too.

There's opportunities to see all sorts of birds on this stretch of the river because it's so calm.

It's worth a stop on the road at least, especially if you're staying at Jackson Lake Lodge, or Signal Mountain Lodge as it's so close.

Its a great place to take photos, very beautiful and scenic. Didn't get to see any wildlife there. Went there three time times but no luck with wildlife. I guess when it comes to wildlife its a hit or miss.

Great photo op. Beautiful scene with the Tetons in the background of the scenic body of water.
Limited parking. Crowded at times. Quick stop and look, then move on.

We really loved visiting this spot. We had lunch here twice and visited again late one afternoon. It truly is a beautiful sight, popular with the birds (especially pelicans) as well as people. Make sure you make time to visit at least once.
