Colter Bay picnic area and swim beach is a wonderful place to relax along the shores of Jackson Lake. The largest picnic area in the park has facilities for nearly everyone. There are even tables on the lakeshore hidden back in the trees! Buoys mark off the swimming area to remind boats to remain out of the area. Lodgepole pines shade many of the tables, but some enjoy the sunshine and lake breeze. If you want to use a charcoal grill or build a fire, this is the picnic area for you! Quite a number of sites have grills or fire rings for visitor use unless fire restrictions are in effect.
