kayak/canoe - jackson lake - gtnp - September 9, 2022

Self support kayak /canoe trip on Jackson Lake in Grand Teton National Park. Loop trip starts and ends at Colter Bay. Backcountry campsites on the lake. Paddling distances of approximately 5 miles between camps, with some open water paddling. Intermediate paddling skills required. Suitable for canoes and touring kayaks. Camps all have bear boxes to secure gear and food. Drive up and camp at Colter Bay campground Friday, Sept. 9. Begin trip Saturday Sept. 10. Paddle from last camp on Elk Island back to Colter Bay, and drive home Wednesday, Sept. 14. This trip is weather and water dependent. Last year, due to drought, a larger than normal amount of water was released from Jackson Dam. This caused very low water on the lake, and made access to the campsites difficult which caused cancellation of the trip. 6 person trip size/4 spaces available.
