Boating on Jackson Lake is a very special experience whether you are on a kayak, paddle board, canoe, or boat.

After a friend generously brought us out boating on Jackson Lake last weekend, we were hooked and decided to take our guests out on a rented pontoon boat from the Marina Office at Signal Mountain Lodge. You can rent any boat for a few hours or for a day. It’s amazing to see the size of Jackson Lake and the beauty from a different point of view.  If you get a permit early enough, you can even plan to camp on Elk Island.
