Driving Estimates to our Kayak Meeting Spot

These are the estimated driving times to get to our Kayak Tours Only.  Our kayak tours start at the beautiful beach on Yellowstone Lake. There are frequent traffic jams, bisons blocking the roads or detours in the Park, so please leave early to make your tour on time and to make it less stressful on you and your family.  The best part of being early is that there is breakfast right by our kayak beach at the Grant Village Lake House Restaurant. There is also a gas station in Grant village, and across the street a General Store with Yellowstone memorabilia. The West Thumb boardwalk, which we will be paddling past, is great to visit in the morning with no crowds, and also just relaxing at the beach is one of the most peaceful places in the park with few crowds.  For more information on road closures and a great map of the area please  look here for the park website.
