From what I saw last summer, Grand Teton National Park looks like a great place for boating. Provided that one has a boat.
Finally, at long last, boating season began last week in the national park.
According to Jackson Hole News & Guide:
Although Jackson Lake ice-off fishing trips and pre-runoff Snake River floats were wiped out by COVID-19 related closures, the water season in Grand Teton National Park has officially arrived.
Lacking staff for aquatic invasive species checks, park officials opted to keep the floating and boating off-limits in the first couple weeks Teton park was open. The weekslong disruption ends Friday, when the AIS check stations at Moose and Moran boot back up and vessels are again allowed on the water.
“Boaters are reminded that both a park boat permit and a state of Wyoming aquatic invasive species decal are required before launching on any park waters,” park officials said in a statement.
