Where can I go to use my gear?

String Lake – the calmest and warmest of the nearby lakes make it a great beginner spot. It’s also easily accessed from the parking lot, so no lugging the board too far.

Jenny Lake – just down from String & Leigh lakes, Jenny lake is larger and tends to get a bit of wind.

Jackson Lake – the largest and likely coldest lake that usually has quite a bit of boat activity and wind (which usually means rougher water). We’d recommend sticking to the bays and near the shoreline, which is also great for wildlife viewing!

Snake River – The Snake River will give you a relaxing floating experience down the river with spectacular views and maybe even views of wildlife. Be aware of the stretch with the rapids and be sure to know where to launch and get out. 

If you’ll be floating on water in Grand Teton National Park, check out the Permits page for more information.


A note about the weather in Jackson – thunderstorms are common during summer afternoons, so plan accordingly. We’d suggest getting your paddle in during the morning or keeping an eye on the ever-changing weather during the afternoons. Also, at 15 miles long and 7 miles wide, Jackson Lake is a large lake. When it’s windy, white capped waves easily form and grow, some becoming as large as 3-foot breakers – not something you want to be paddle boarding in.

Stay safe, plan accordingly! And if you need recommendations on where to go to get the most out of your day on the lake, call our Adventure Guides at: 307-733-4340. We’d love to help you plan the ultimate adventure day!
