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.

  • Today’s a big day for hunters in Wyoming - October 1, 2014
    If you’re really serious about hunting, you’re probably not listening to this. Depending on where you are in the state, the sun’s either up already or sunrise isn’t far away. If you’re a die-hard hunter, you’re probably already hunkered down in a field waiting for the geese to come in, out in the timber trying […]
  • Not all bad news in judge’s decision to relist wolves - September 30, 2014
    U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson handed down a ruling last week that removed wolves from Wyoming control and put them back under the protection of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. That ruling put an end to hunting wolves anywhere in the state, whether they’re in the trophy game area in the northwestern corner […]
