Canoeing & Kayaking
From calm and flowing rivers to alpine lakes, you don’t have to go far to spend a day canoeing, kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding on Wyoming’s waters. Many state parks boast beautiful reservoirs perfect for a relaxing stand-up paddleboard or canoeing trip. Various waterways inside Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park welcome paddlers as well. Some local favorites include String Lake, Oxbow Bend on the Snake River and Jenny Lake. Other great canoeing spots that can be enjoyed by paddlers of any kind include Pinedale’s Fremont Lake and Pathfinder Reservoir near Casper. If you prefer a more adventurous ride on a kayak or stand-up paddleboard, seek out Wyoming’s epic rivers and river-carved canyons. Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area, the Bighorn River near Thermopolis, the North Platte River in Casper and the Snake River near Grand Teton National Park all offer incredible waters for a whitewater kayaking trip. Find whitewater kayaking guides or places to rent canoes, kayaks or stand-up paddleboards across Wyoming. Our guides and local outfitters can provide you with all the gear and guidance you need, no matter how you enjoy your time on the water.
