Shoshone Lake and Shoshone Geyser Basin

Shoshone Lake & Shoshone Geyser Basin Professional Review and Guide

"With no road access, forest-lined Shoshone Lake is the largest backcountry lake in the Lower 48 US states. An amazing geyser basin, good fishing, boat-in camping, and the possibility of extended backpacking and kayaking trips add to the allure. Nearly a third of all the park’s backcountry use is concentrated around the lake."

Wonderfull backcountry hike. Manage your hike in order to see lonestargeyser erruption (every 3h). The trail goes along a little river, gentle up and down. We do recommand 8R5 campsite, 10 minutes off the main trail, on Shoshne lake Shore. No wood fire. We saw Grizzly scats, be bear aware, like everywhere else in yellowstone. We came back on the north trail, and delacy creek trail. We had to hitc-hike to come back to kepler cascade parking. Enjoy!
