Anyone have experience paddling on Jackson Lake? I have backcountry reservations for three trips up to Leigh Lake in July & August. The July trips are 4 nighters with 2 nights at an east side camp and 2 nights at a west side camp. For August I could only put together a 3 nighter with 3 different camps. I’m thinking about how to add some extra paddling in GTNP to the August trip. I know Jackson Lake is big, with some longer paddling distances and power boats. There is one camp that’s about a 1 mile paddle from Colter Bay Marina. Little Mackinaw Bay camp. There are a bunch of small islands and bays in that area. I’m thinking of staying at that camp for 2 nights & doing some day paddling to explore. It seems like a safer way to dip my toe into Jackson Lake paddling since this part of the trip (or maybe the whole trip) might be a solo affair. I have found one YouTube video so far of a solo paddler who did a 3 night loop on Jackson Lake and stayed at Little Mackinaw camp.
Thanks in advance for any info.
