String Lake is located in Grand Teton National Park, in the U. S. state of Wyoming. The natural lake is located at the outflow of Leigh Lake. A small wetland area is on the northwest side of the lake and is prime moose habitat. A short half mile (.8 km) long creek connects String Lake to Jenny Lake to the south. The lake can easily be accessed by vehicle and a number of trails commence from the String Lake trailhead parking area.

  • This is a beautiful and very easy walk along the lake depending on how much of it you want to do. Recommend for a short afternoon relaxed jaunt. 
  • Beautiful little lake to canoe or kayak. Small, but very scenic. If you want more adventure; you have to portage, for about 1/4 mile, to reach the much bigger Leigh Lake. But, it is well worth it! Spectacular views of the Tetons, and very serene... no power boats on either.
  • The water is warm enough to swim in. Popular with families and children.
