    Fantastic visit with husband and toddler
    So, so beautiful. Visited Memorial Day weekend and there were plenty of people but didn’t seem overly crowded. 3 full days in the park and I’m sure we could have spent even more time. On the 4th day, stopped at Sleeping Indian Overlook and Albright View Overlook for sunrise before out 7a flight out of JAC. Pro tip: sit on the left side of the plane for takeoff and right side of the plane for landing to view the Tetons from the air.

    Nice park if you like to hike
    We came here after viewing Yellowstone, which was amazing. If you like to hike, come here. We toured by car and exited the car infrequently due to time constraints, so we likely didn’t get the full experience possible. It was beautiful but we couldn’t help making comparisons to the other parks we visited, which we found to be even more interesting and beautiful.

    Absolutely AMAZING!
    Amazing! Beautiful! Breathtaking! Those are just a few words to describe this gorgeous place. We visited the park and surrounding areas for 4 nights and 5 days and loved every single minute of it. If you love to hike then this is the place for you, there are some amazing trails for all skill levels. We also got to see tons of wildlife including a moose and her baby and a grizzly mama and her three cubs. You never tire of seeing the gorgeous mountains and it’s amazing that their appearance will kind of change with the weather. It would be almost impossible to not enjoy this place.

    Grand Teton National Park
    Grand Teton National Park is a large national park in Wyoming. The city of Jackson Hole is quite close to the park. We stayed at Colter Bay, near Jackson Lake. There are many things to do in the park. We went Kayaking on Jackson Lake. You can just push off from the swim beach, or use a boat ramp. (You first have to get your boat inspected for invasive species. This costs $25, and the inspection is mandatory.) We also did the ferry boat on Jenny Lake to go to Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point. The ferry is not free, but there is a 2 mile or 5 mile hike to get to the same place. The view from Inspiration Point is amazing, and the hike to get up is a little steep, and is about 1 mile. Also, the ferry stops if there is lightning in the area, so make sure to check the weather. In the town of Jackson Hole, there is a great ice cream place called Moo's. The Huckleberry Ice Cream there is really good. You can see some really great wildlife in Grand Teton. If you want to see elk and moose, you should come in the late fall/ early winter. The views of the mountains are also really good.

    Wonderous and magnificent....
    Visiting here was truly a wonderful bucket-list experience. Originally we were going to explore Yellowstone for three days, and the Tetons for two. With the delay in the opening of the south entrance to Yellowstone, due to late snow fall; we had to reverse our timing. Certainly, nothing was lost by having more time in the Tetons. The mountains, lakes, panoramic views and wildlife encounters, created memory upon memory. Watching the Park emerge from its winter shadings, was a fascinating and rewarding exploration. Being early May, we were able to maintain a leisurely pace, pullover as desired, and not impede others. We saw black bear, elk, moose, bison and big horn sheep. Though the Lodges were not yet open, they were accessible; allowing one to see staff preparing Park facilities for the coming visitor onslaught. This country encompasses so much wonderous and magnificent beauty; and this area certainly holds its share.

    Bucket List Item
    Grand Teton Park has been a Bucket List Item for us for some time, and this year we finally made it there. Back in 1923, a meeting was held on land that would become the park. Businessmen with a vision, and ranchers and the Yellowstone Park Superintendent hatched a plan that was the beginning of everything. Today, there is so much to see and do that one review could never be enough to describe this magical place. Water, hiking, visitor centers, camping, cabins, boating, wildlife, lodges, and restaurants, the most photographed place in the world, are just the beginning. We had one and a half long days. It was just barely enough. Restrooms Modern restrooms are located at Visitor Centers and Campgrounds. Dog-friendliness Dog are allowed where cars can go. They must be securely leashed and with their owners. They ae not allowed in Park buildings, with the exception of support animals. Picnic area Picnic areas are located at campgrounds and some of the overlook areas.

    Just beautiful
    Stunning mountains and beautiful rivers and lakes. We aren't hikers or outdoorsy people so we did most of our sightseeing from the car and from the various pullouts. Sadly the weather was not the greatest, but the mountains were still beautiful shrouded in clouds and mist. This is one of those parks that's easily accessible and that everyone should visit.

    Bear Spray demonstration
    While at the Colter Bay Visitors Center we asked the park ranger about our bear spray. She was happy to explain how to use it and they have a can they use as a demo so you can try it out. I'm sure other Visitor Center's probably have the same, but this was SO helpful.

    Spectacular Lakes, Mountains & Forest
    Strikenly beautiful park with the lakes, mountains & forest. The park is a relaxing & calming place. As we’re only here for half a day we asked advice from the Ranger which area to visit. Jackson lake is so beautiful with different trails around Colter Bay where there is a very useful & informative Visitor Centre. I highly recommend the park & wished we could have stayed longer.

    Beautiful and majestic peaks!
    Grand Teton National Park is a great place to enjoy the outdoors and offers great trails to explore on. We went during shoulder season and the trails still had plenty of people hiking on. I can only imagine how busy this park would be during the summer/peak months. There is only one road in the park that runs south to north and can get congested in certain areas. The views of the peaks are beautiful, but you only get the one view (east face), unless you hike to the backside. Please keep in mind that we live in Colorado and it was hard to not compare GTNP with RMNP where you can drive and explore more of the park. I'm still glad my wife and I visited and hiked (especially Delta Lake), but if you really want to enjoy the park and surrounding areas, then go during the off-peak season(s).

This park is absolutely stunning! There is so much to see and do. We could only spend a day in the park but by following the 42 mile Teton Loop we were able to stop and see several sites such as: Chapel of the Transfiguration, Chapel of the Sacred Heart, Oxbow Bend, Snake River Overlook, Schwabacher's Landing, and Mormon Row. We stopped at Jenny Lake Overlook because by the time we arrived at Jenny Lake there was no where to park. We arrived around 1pm, and based on how busy Jenny Lake was vs. the rest of the park, I would suggest going early and beating the crowd. Before driving along the loop we took a raft tour down Snake River which is a must do and was my favorite part of the visit. Most recommendations we saw online said the best way to travel the loop is starting at the southeast and traveling clockwise, which is what we did, spending a full day in the park.

It doesn’t get better than this, it’s quite possibly my favorite place. It is such a beautiful place, pictures just don’t do it justice. Aside from how beautiful and peaceful it is, there’s an abundance of wildlife and the trails are great!! Yellowstone has nothing on Grand Teton, not even close, Grand Teton is better in every way!!! This place is a MUST if you love the outdoors. I can’t wait to go back!!

This was my second time here. The first time it was cloudy. This time it was sunny.
Because of all the traffic in Yellowstone National Park, I had less time to do things here. I had intended to go to the top of Signal Mountain Road and do a short hike, but time didn't allow for it. Would recommend it though, if you have time, at least based upon what saw in an online preview.
Basically, I did a drive through. Unlike Yellowstone, though, this place was not crowded. Of course you could stop at any pullout and get incredible views, and that's about all I did. The scenery will *not* disappoint.

Definitely worth a drive-through. We almost skipped it - not wanting to go through Yellowstone again to get there. Glad we didn't miss it. Such beauty is hard to find. Photos just don't do justice to this kind of place - you have to be there!! "For purple mountain majesties"

Stunning views and landscapes with lakes and prairies. We drove through the Teton National Park in early morning and the views were amazing, with mist covering the tops of the mountains which still have some snow left on them from last winter.
Close to Jackson it is easy to visit the Tetons in both summer and winter.

We began seeing the snowcapped mountains of GTNP over an hour away (coming from W. Yellowstone) and were amazed at how distinct & grand they were. We would highly recommend coming in through Idaho, that way from W.Yellowstone, to see the magnificent farms with the Tetons in the background. We loved all the areas to stop and sightsee. We know the natural growth of the landscape is to help things be better but it looks nasty (and unkept) and it creates terrible mosquitoes & biting bugs for those of us visiting the park. I was eaten up, even using bug spray, and saw tons of people complaining about all the bugs that were eating them alive with bug spray on. We did horseback riding & that was fun through backwoods of the park but saw lots in the park that would've been nice to ride and see the mountains. 2-3 days is the most you need in this park. Great riding trails for e-bikes, too.
