Shoshone Lake

Shoshone Lake Professional Review and Guide

"Multi-day loop backpacking trip to Shoshone Lake. Overall this hike has minimal elevation gain, but several short,
steep hills around the lake.

A three-night, four-day trip with an easy first day which leaves time for driving to the trailhead. Shoshone Lake is one of the most popular backpacking destinations in Yellowstone. In addition, paddlers come up the Lewis River and camp at the lake which actually has more boat-access-only campsites (not covered inthis book) than trail-access campsites. If you want to avoid an overpopulation of mosquitoes, wait until late August to go to Shoshone Lake."
