Shoshone Lake

Shoshone Lake, the largest backcountry lake in the United States, is not accessible by car. You can either hike to the lake, or paddle from Lewis Lake. Shoshone Lake also provides access to the Shoshone Geyser Basin. Reaching the basin requires either an eight mile hike from Lone Star Geyser or a canoe trip across both Lewis and Shoshone Lakes.
