Grand Teton National Park at a Glance

Grand Teton National Park is situated just south of Yellowstone. Let your adventures take you seamlessly between the two parks.

Grand Teton's spiky mountain peaks are gorgeous at any time of year. Snow covers the mountain tops and the sun stains them pink and purple at sunrise and sunset. Hiking through the park in summer, or wading through the deep snow on snowshoes, visitors can see glacial lakes with either floating ice or fishing boats.

In summer, the water is so clear and still that the mountains are frequently reflected in its surface. The Snake River winds through the park and on hot summer afternoons visitors can lie on a tube and float downriver as the forest canopy moves by them.

Grand Teton has great camping and over 1,000 places to put your tent for the night. Whether you prefer a front facing tent site with a beach and public bathrooms, or the solitude of a sub-alpine clearing, The Grand Teton National Park has somewhere to welcome you.
