Beat The Summer Heat With A Kayak Trip Through Grand Teton National Park In Wyoming
Looking for a way to beat the summer heat and enjoy the great outdoors? Try your hand at kayaking in Grand Teton National Park! The park’s lakes and the Snake River make for scenic and memorable paddle trips.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Jackson Lake may be the most famous lake for kayaking in Wyoming, thanks to the quiet waters and incredible scenery that surrounds it!
However, if you feel like you've kayaked Jackson Lake too many times by now, check out a few other spots in Grand Teton National Park to drop in your boat.
Paddling the Snake River requires a little bit of planning. You'll want to check the water levels and choose your drop-in point before heading out.
One popular and easy route along the Snake River starts at the Jackson Lake Dam and winds all the way to Pacific Creek, near the park entrance.
This water trail takes you through the iconic Oxbow Bend, in the shadow of Mount Moran.
Oxbow Bend has been one of Wyoming's most iconic landmarks, ever since it was captured in a famous Ansel Adams photo. You'll fall in love with the journey through the river when it's calm.
String Lake is another must-paddle spot for kayaking in Grand Teton National Park
The crystal-clear water of this alpine lake is quite the sight, and it's a great place for a dip when you're done for the day.
If you'd like to go kayaking in Grand Teton National Park but aren't sure where to start, several outfitters like Rendezvous River Sports (based in Jackson) are nearby and ready to help.
