Yellowstone’s Lewis Lake Campground Now Open

Better late than never: the Lewis Lake Campground in Yellowstone National Park is now partially open. Most of the sites located on the walk-in loop are still underwater and will remain closed until approximately the first week of August. In addition, there’s no water service at the camground: Campers are advised to bring their own drinking water or method for treating water. Faucets will be properly signed until water becomes available, which is expected to be sometime next week.

Also opening this week: The Lewis Lake Ranger Station, which remains closed but is expected to open next week.  Until then, permits can still be obtained at ranger stations at the South Entrance, Grant Village or Bridge Bay.

The Lewis Lake facility has a limited number of RV sites which can accommodate vehicles up to 25 feet long. There are no generators permitted or other electrical facilities available. Vault toilets are also available.

Jackson Hole Kayak and Rafting water levels

Jackson Hole area water flows in the Snake River canyon reached a new high Friday, roughly one week after the peak predicted by the National Weather Service.

The Alpine gauging station reached 26,500 cubic feet per second at 12:15 p.m. Friday, roughly 1,000 cfs more than the predicted peak of 25,500 cfs recorded June 25.

Jackson Lake Reservoir reached 85 percent of capacity Friday —  roughly 717,134 acre feet of the 847,000 maximum. That leaves 129,866 acre feet of capacity left in the reservoir.

High water at Yellowstone Lake

Yellowstone Lake is so full of water right now that the parking lot in Grant Village is flooded. The hot weather over the past week has sped up the rate at which snow is melting at the upper elevations, causing the lake to overflow. Still completely safe for sea kayaking. Kayaking on the lake is the best way to see the flooded conditions on the shoreline.
