Stand Up Paddle Excursion in Yellowstone National Park

Lewis Lake Campground, Yellowstone NP - Search Nearby - Added by Sean Jansen

Solitude. Fly Fishing. Trout. Peace. Beauty. Lake to lake paddle. No one around. Geysers.

It is something fantastic if you know how to use a standup paddle board. Being able to paddle from one lake to another where no roads can reach via a small channel with natural geysers going off and trout rising to morning and afternoon flies.

The water being, in some parts, very warm because of the geysers while coupled with being crystal clear makes the paddle even more enjoyable than the final destination. However, once getting to Shoshone Lake, you can take stock in realizing what real Mother Nature looks and feels like. It is so quiet, you can here the trees in the wind, while watching plumes of steam rise from some parts of the lake from the geysers.

Worth every second

Great adventure for me and the two kids. The few folks we met were amazed an 11 year old could paddle board that far. Kids had a blast.
