Beula Lake Professional Reviews and Guides
"An easy day hike or overnighter that’s popular with anglers. From the trailhead the trail gradually climbs over a small ridge and drops into Beula Lake. The trail is in superb condition the entire way. It goes through partly burned forest most of the way, but the lakeshore wasn't burned."
--Bill Schneider, Hiking Yellowstone National Park (Falcon Guides).
"Located 15 miles west of the south entrance to Yellowstone National Park, along the very southern border of the park. A short day hike to a serene lake amid dense lodgepole forested hills."
--Bill Hunger, Hiking Wyoming (Falcon Guides).
"Buela Lake is a beautiful 1 07-acre backcountry lake that sits at an elevation of 7,400 feet near the south end of Yellowstone National Park. The lake is surrounded by forested hills. Yellow pond lilies grow along its marshy south end, where a stream from Hering Lake feeds the lake. The outlet stream at the northwest end of Buela Lake forms the headwaters of Falls River. Access to the trailhead is through the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Memorial Parkway and Targhee National Forest. The well-defined trail gently winds through lodgepole pines and parallels the western shoreline past two designated campsites."
