This park is an "Oasis in the Plains," for swimming, boating, fishing and waterskiing. But that's not all... Jackson Lake is ranked one of the "Top 15 Park Beaches" by Reserve America. Anglers, boaters, or naturalists realizing theres too much fun for just one day enjoy the variety of water or land based recreational facilities found here. Birders and hunters flock here because of the parks location in the Central Flyway for migratory birds. Quiet winter months provide hearty wildlife viewers some excellent opportunities to spot the many animals that live here. No matter the season, Jackson Lake is, as novelist James Michener suggests, an oasis of the plains."

There is a 3.5 mile out and back walking/running trail starting at the visitor center. $7 entrance fee into the park. Pretty views of the lake. Trail did have a lot of bugs when I went a couple of weeks ago.
