The Upper Madison River is a world-renowned venue for fly-fishing. It's only 20 miles from the RV Park and there's plenty of places to put in. It is scenic and usually not too crowded. Even if you don't catch a trout, the scenery is worth the trip and more. Directions

Jackson Lake is natural, except for the top 33 feet, which is due to the construction of Jackson Lake Dam, built in 1911.
