If you're not staying in one of the many Grand Teton National Park cabins, camp out instead. Walk-in camping is allowed in Colter Bay and Jenny Lake campgrounds. Reserve in advance for backcountry camping.
Go for a relaxing cruise on Jackson Lake and enjoy a scrumptious breakfast, lunch, or dinner onboard. The cruise also includes a narration of local history and lake folklore.
Sign up for wildlife safaris, ranging from half a day to several days. Personalized guides, extensive viewing of bison, coyotes, grizzlies, and moose, among others, as well as countless photo opportunities make for a perfect family trip with kids. Moose Wilson Road, Kelly Loop, Antelope Flats, and Oxbow Bend hold the best opportunities for seeing animals in the wild. And winter is prime time for spotting elks in the National Elk Refuge.
Take a long scenic drive along this route to observe the park’s beautiful scenery. Keep your eyes peeled for creatures and critters as you take in the spectacular views of Teton Range, Jackson Lake, and Jackson Hole Valley.
Go rock climbing on the iconic Grand Teton peak, the highest in the whole park. Mountain guides give climbing classes geared towards families and kids.
