Tenaya Lake, Yosemite National Park
(4.9/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Take a walk on the shoreline of Tenaya Lake, or hike up the surrounding mountains. Breathe in fresh air coming down from the rocky hills, have a picnic next to the lake, or even go for a swim in the crystal clear water. Be careful as the water can be cold even during the warm months like June, or July. Wear comfortable shoes if hiking, and don’t forget to bring snacks, as well as drinkable water. Plan to see Tenaya Lake and other attractions that appeal to you using our Yosemite National Park tourist route planner.

  • Among the forests and the blue sky I saw this beautiful Lake. Doesn't look like California, it seems the Trentino. Still waters and clean, full of trout. And a mist spray on the surface of the water. Although it was quite chilly, the scenery was lovely. Worth a stop to enjoy true peace.

  • We have here inserted a stop on the journey from the Yosemite NP to Las Vegas and can really recommend it everyone. A perfect place for the relax, rest and take pictures.

  • A gorgeous picnic stop and a great place to paddle. The water would have been great to swim in, even in mid-Sept, but alas we didn't have the time!
