Below are a few things to do in and around Grand Teton National Park. To see a calendar of upcoming events, please view our Events Calendar.
In and Around Jackson Lake Lodge
- Lunch Tree Hill is a favorite easy hike for our staff and returning guests. Be sure to find the plaque at the top of the hill to learn more about this iconic location.
- Grand View Point offers a unique view of the Tetons and hidden wilderness that otherwise could not be seen. This hike can be short or long depending on the interest of the hikers – ask for a map to find this hidden treasure!
- Jackson Lake Lodge History Tours walk through our historic lodge, ask our Activities Desk when guided tours are available. Stop in the Pioneer Grill and learn about the artifacts and photos from the informational brochure available at the hostess station. Or be sure to ask for a schedule of the walking tour our company historian Mary McKinney provides each week ~ her enthusiasm for our location is contagious!
- Signal Mountain is a short drive from Jackson Lake Lodge, just a mile or so across the Dam. At the top, two turnouts provide some of the best views in the valley and the location is great for a family photo!
In and Around Grand Teton National Park
- String Lake is a favorite for kayaking and hiking. So much so, our staff almost didn’t want to add it to this list! Bring a lunch and your hiking shoes for a memorable day at this clear water glacial lake…and don’t forget your camera!
- Where is Moose, Wyoming? Have you visited this location in the Park? It’s the headquarters for Grand Teton National Park. Be sure to stop at the Visitor’s Center – it is a state of the art location with fun activities for the family. Then head on over to Menor’s Ferry and Chapel of Transfiguration.
- The Snake River Overlook can be found on the outer road heading to town. Not only is this turnout popular because of the view, it’s where Ansel Adams took one of his most famous photos!
- Where the Buffalo Roam…we cannot always tell you exactly where to find the various wildlife in the Park. However, we are pretty confident that if you head towards the Gros Venture Campground on the way to town our local buffalo heard are likely to be found. Be sure to bring the camera and stay a safe distance ~ these guys can run fast!
