Location

Grand Teton National Park is located in northwest Wyoming, just south of Yellowstone National Park. Here visitors can explore over two hundred miles of trails, float the Snake River, and enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place.

Grand Teton National Park covers nearly 310,000 acres of mountains, lakes, and plains including the major peaks of the Teton Range and the northern half of the valley of Jackson Hole.

The park includes lush valley floors, mountain meadows, alpine lakes and the rising peaks of the Teton Range. While iconic locations like Mormon Row and the Moulton Barns may be the most photographed destinations in the park, Grand Teton's celestial peaks also provide the perfect setting for nature lovers, outdoor adventurers and road trippers who are looking to explore the park's incredible landscapes.

Grand Teton is open all year, though some areas of the park are inaccessible by car from approximately November through May due to seasonal winter closures.

The Weather

Winter driving may be challenging; park roads are often covered with ice or hard-packed snow; winter storms create white-out driving conditions. Make sure your vehicle is equipped with winter or all-season tires and carry tire chains when driving over mountain passes.

Let's Visit the Park!

The park offers a wide range of things to do and activities, from hiking, biking, camping, fishing, eco tours and winter sports.

We have visited Grand Teton on numerous trips, and have enjoyed its many attractions, tours, trails and outdoor activities. Often we stop there going to/from nearby Yellowstone National Park and Jackson Hole.
