This is a peaceful, short paddle on a small, shallow lake that sits directly below the Tetons, excellent for beginners. Be aware of wind and accompanying waves, even on smaller lakes. Attractions include beautiful mountain backdrop adjacent tot he lake, clear water, swimming, bird life. Bring a camera. It is a great place for families, since the water is quite shallow (10 feet at its deepest) and relatively warm compared to other lakes in the area. The boat launch and parking area are about halfway along the east shoreline. Remember that only self-propelled boats are permitted here. The parking area can get quite crowded, so plan to arrive early in the day. There is a 3.5-mile trail around the lake, too, if you or some of your party would like to do some hiking. String Lake, surrounded by lodgepole pine, spruce, and fir trees, is about 1 mile long and, except for the south end that widens to about 0.25 mile, quite narrow, making it feel a bit like a river.
