So, I just did a quick search to see what came up and although I didn't see anything above "beginner/intermediate" it appears you can kayak in the park after purchasing an inexpensive permit.
Inside Grand Teton National Park, paddle from Jackson Lake Dam to Pacific Creek. This is a great half-day trip. Enjoy excellent fishing for cutthroat trout. See eagles nesting. We recommend a side-trip to the Oxbow Bend area. Skill Level: intermediate; Distance: 5 miles; Average Time: 2-4 hours; Put in: Jackson Lake Dam; Take out: Pacific Creek Landing; Hazards: River obstacles, swift current. To kayak inside Yellowstone Park and Grand Teton national parks, you must have a boat permit. A seven-day permit for a non-motorized vessel in Grand Teton Park costs $5 ($10 for annual permit) and can be purchased at the Moose or Colter Bay Visitor Centers. In Yellowstone, the cost is $5 for a 7-day permit or $10 for a season permit. Obtain permits at the Lewis Lake Ranger Station, Grant Village Visitor Center, Bridge Bay Marina and the Lake Ranger Station. For paddlers looking to camp overnight, a backcountry permit is required. Stop in at a ranger station for information on obtaining a permit to camp.
I would be psyched to get in there on a kayak gnar or not!
Are there any initiatives out there to provide access to the stuff you're referring to Montuckyhuck? Post links if so, I would like to read about it.
