Loop trip in the southern end of Jackson Lake. Stunning scenery and great camping. Begins and ends at Colter Bay, with camping at Hermitage Point, South Landing, Bear Paw Bay, and Elk Island. Paddling distances are short, but afternoon wind and waves are possible, so morning paddling is best. Afternoon time for hiking and relaxing. One open water crossing. Suitable for touring kayaks and canoes. This is bear country, and we have seen them on previous trips. All camps have bear boxes. This is a self support trip. Participants must provide their own boat, camping and cooking gear, and food. Lake water can be easily filtered. Early September is usually a great time to go. Not too hot, kids are back in school, and we'll be there the week before Labor Day, so motorboat traffic may be lighter. Drive up Monday 8/31 and camp at Colter Bay. Launch Tuesday 9/1. Paddle out Saturday 9/5 and head home. Total trip size is 6 people and the trip roster is currently full. This trip is pending the COVID-19 status and Grand Teton National Park guidelines in August.
