We parked by the lake, sat on the lakeside stones and had lunch. With the sun shining bright the lake looked beautiful with the mountains in the background.

A must going stop if you’re Yosemite, spectacular forrest and mountain view unfolding while you could wade far in the crystal clear water. The views and mountains around the lake are also worth visit.
Best place we visited in Yosemite. Beautiful lake, amazing beach. Water is clean and the view is breathtaking. Good parking and a nice short walk to the beach. While we did not go around the lake, there was plenty of spots around the lake and a good hike. A must visit if you are visiting the park.
