Boat Rentals in September

Hi, we are going to be at Yellowstone and Grand Teton the last week of Sept. and first week of Oct. We were hoping to rent a boat or canoe and explore Yellowstone Lake and/or one of the lakes in Grand Teton. We are also intersted in rafting trips. Unfortunately, it seems that all of the boat rentals and rafting outfits in the park are closed up by mid-September. Is this true? Thanks in advance for any advice.

That sounds about right for Yellowstone. Visit www.nps.gov/yell/ and check closing dates.

You may have better luck in Tetons, but not sure.

Late September is getting pretty chilly in that area. You may want to just explore the parks and do some hiking!

Hopefully our local experts will post more info.

PS... last year at the end of September the daytime temps ranged from the 40's to the 60's. Sounds a bit too cold for water sports.....

Thanks for your reply. I was thinking that same thing but we're from the northeast so we're used to some chilly weather. That's ok I'm sure we'll find plany of things to do. Thanks again

You WILL find plenty to see and do!! Watch for wildlife at dawn and dusk! The elk probably will still be in rut and you may also see wolves.

Enjoy!

Do you like to kayak? Pete's Paddle On Adventures rents kayaks on Hebgen Lake just a few miles northwest of West Yellowstone (western border to the park),
