Jackson Lake Kayaking in Grand Teton National Park - Overview

Download Itinerary

Thanks to a unique O.A.R.S. itinerary, first-time kayakers and families can adventure and overnight on Jackson Lake, in the heart of Grand Teton National Park, the shimmering soul of the Tetons.

With an idyllic island camp, O.A.R.S. guests are the only outfitted paddlers authorized to spend nights on Jackson Lake lying just west of Signal Mountain in Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park. Paddle beneath a cowboy country moon and the same starry skies that lured the gaze of ancient tribes and settlers. During the day, Jackson Lake's calm waters are perfect for paddlers to learn their first sea kayaking stroke. Hikes, rushing creeks, fishing and ultra-photographic landscapes surround you. And just beyond the Grand Tetons’ peaks, less than an hour away, lie the geo-thermal wonders and wildlife of Yellowstone National Park. What could be more fun?

“Eleven of us took an overnight kayak trip on Jackson Lake. This was a family reunion organized to celebrate Grandma's birthday (unfortunately Grandma had a little trouble with the altitude and was unable to sleep out overnight, but she participated in everything else from a seat on the pontoon boat). We had a WONDERFUL time and I want to compliment you on the quality of your employees. They could not have been nicer or more willing to accomodate the various needs of our party (ranging in age from eight to eighty). Thank you, and should we do another trip of this type we will certainly contact O.A.R.S.”
