We have rented 2 kayaks (single and double) in Colter Bay Marina and spent few hours kayaking on lake. Weather was perfect, views absolutely great and trip was funny. I'd recommend it. Only one problem was quality of single kayak.

Views all over the place, a sweet little marina with a variety of boat rentals. Saw people SUPing. Very few boats on the lake, so nicely unpopulated.

Wonderful 2 hr boat cruise on Jackson Lake with a very knowledgable boat captain and crew. Loved the scenery and learning about the area. Would highly recommend this informative trip. Colter Bay Marina had restrooms, water refill stations, food was available and a terrific visitor center! A must .....

Camped at this lake while passing throught the park. Great facilities and lots of campsites. Very friendly staff made me feel welcome. Best part was there are hot showers here that you can pay for at the laundromat. This was well needed. Huge marina with boat rentals, which I found odd that gas power boats were allowed on this lake... More

We rented a boat at Signal Mountain Lodge and spent an afternoon on Jackson Lake. The views were breathtaking. My photographs look postcard perfect. The lake is beautiful and the Tetons as a backdrop are jaw-dropping! We enjoyed exploring around Elk Island and all the nooks and crannies. Exploring by boat was my favorite part of the trip into GTNP.

Even if you only stop for a few minutes... Although I don't know how you could.. Stop! The Tetons loom over this lake and your photographs will look like postcards. You just have to see it.

Jackson Lake is beautiful with the lovely Teton's behind. Just gorgeous. It's worth a look for sure. There is a pretty "beach" next to the visitor's center at Colter Bay to sit on a picnic bench and have some lunch or enjoy the view.
