String Lake has so much to offer in the Grand Teton National Park, such as hiking trails, picnic areas, wildlife, water activities and mountain views. On a calm day, there are good photo opportunities for mountain reflections in the lake. Hiking trails are well defined,...More

Quieter than Jenny Lake but still with stunning views. You can hire a canoe and paddle out and families treat it like a mini beach and sit and play or picnic. There's a walk which we didn't do, content to stand admire the view. Plenty...More

Easy to get to. You can see the lake on a couple of trails, and drive to it on park roads. Picnic area. But there are other lakes in more scenic locations in the park.

This was our first hike in the Tetons. It's a great hike for families and the scenery is awesome. Hiking this trail early in the morning may be best to avoid crowds.

String Lake is an extremely gentle short hike. There is a possibility of seeing wildlife on the walk. There are tables for picnicking and plenty of space to sit on the beach. Many people used Stand Up Paddleboards on this lake.

Super pretty view. Nice trail. Paddle boards, canoes and kayaks. Some areas not too deep. The boaters would step out of their boats and wade in the middle of the lake. Very clear lake.

This is a nice flat hike, out and back along the Lake. You can extend the hike on a few other trails that intersect. Be sure to buy the local trail map to maximize your hikes.

This is not as popular as Jenny Lake but less crowd means more peace and quiet for you for enjoying the view and taking pictures. The view of the Grand Teton from String Lake is not the best one, but it does have its charm....More

It’s a great place for an easy hike along the shoreline. We walked up to the neighboring lake. We didn’t have kayak or canoe, but next time we will.
