Easy walk or short hike. Go down to the water to see the beautiful view across the lake. Worth the stop!

Very scenic area and large pullout. A must do while sightseeing in the Grand Tetons area. Saw some Beaver but no large animals. Probably a good spot to be waiting quietly in your vehicle at morning or night. Very nice.

I'm surprised by some of the reviews on this spot, I thought it was gorgeous! One of my favorites of our whole trip! The Tetons are just spectacular and I thought this was a great spot to admire the view and take pictures.

Oxbow Bend is a fabulous place for photography, but quickly becomes crowded with visitors which block your view.

We saw amazing pelicans and fantastic views of the Tetons. Some of my best landscape photos were from this turnout.

We stayed for 10 days and found that Oxbow Bend was the best place to photograph the Tetons. The reflections are outstanding at sunset and sunrise.

Among the top 3 photo ops in the Grand Tetons. Hard to take a bad photo. Also good likelyhood of seeing wildlife here. Moose and waterfowl are frequent visitors, particularly near sunrise and sunset which is also a great time to take your photos.

Kirk had a telescope that he set up for us to see. He already knew about where a Bald Eagle and Blue Herron nest where!

No. Take from the east side of the river just off the main highway facing west.

Can't give you a name, but there ARE many outfitters in Jackson. I promise that at least two or four can easily accomodate you.
