Park Road Opens

GTNP Entrance

Tomorrow is May first, and that means the summer season is officially beginning to take shape in Grand Teton National Park with the opening of the Teton Park Road.  Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says the early season brings with it a variety of considerations for the park visitor, particularly the amount of wildlife that is still very actively moving around the park and into their summer ranges. The first facility to open will be the Gros Ventre campground on Friday. Entrance stations to the park are already open with a variety of pass options available.  Those on foot or bicycle can pay $12 for a seven-day pass, motorcycles may buy a seven-day pass for $20, those in automobiles pay $25 for those same seven days, or park visitors may either purchase a Grand Teton/Yellowstone pass for the year for $50 or the federal pass for $80. The South Entrance Road to Yellowstone is not scheduled to open until May 11th.

  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife. And even offer suggestions to the Game and Fish Commission when we think there are better ways to ensure that […]
