2021 Operating Updates

As the Bureau of Reclamation continues to draw down Jackson Lake to supply water to irrigation reservoirs in Idaho, low water levels require us to discontinue Colter Bay Village Marina operations earlier than anticipated. At this time, Jackson Lake Meal Cruises are expected to close Wednesday, July 21 and Jackson Lake Scenic Cruises are expected to close on Friday, July 23. Subject to change based on changing conditions.  

Consistent with CDC recommendations and federal guidelines for those on federal lands, fully vaccinated visitors (those at least 2 weeks past their final dose), are not required to wear a mask. Visitors not considered fully vaccinated should continue to wear a mask covering both the mouth and nose when indoors, in line or gathered for services, and when interacting with employees and/or guests, or when outdoors on NPS-administered lands when distancing is not possible.

Guests are encouraged to check back to our site regularly for updates, and to plan ahead and book early.


Jackson Lake Scenic Cruises

Lake cruises are the perfect excursion for the entire family! A scenic cruise on Jackson Lake will literally place you in the shadow of Mount Moran while you learn a bit about local history, geology, and folklore and take in the sights, including 10,000-year old glacial water flowing into Jackson Lake. Take a meal cruise, and dine on Elk Island as you see the park from a completely unique vantage point. Learn more about our accessible activities.
