Water Body
Take a walk on the shores 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 go for a swim in the crystal clear water. Note, however, that the water here can be cold, even during the warm months of June and 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.

  • The Tenaya Lake is located on the Tioga road, so that you go very well with the car. The Lake is very beautiful, so that a stop and a (short) walk worthwhile in any case.

  • Large beach suitable for swimming in the Park saw a deer with a beach. Nice and cold water I would recommend a visit especially in the presence of children

  • Beautiful Lake to visit and enjoy 100% nature. The day we went was cloudy and very cold so that we were not long but it was also very beautiful.
