Seasonally operated facilities begin opening for summer operations in Grand Teton National Park and the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway the end of this week. The Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center will open for the season on Saturday and be open daily from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm.
The Teton Park Road and Moose-Wilson Road both open to motor vehicles on Saturday as well. Colter Bay Visitor Center opens May 7th, and it will operate daily 8:00 am until 5:00 pm.
Park visitors should consult nps.gov/grte/planyourvisit/hours.htm for all other opening and closing dates for facilities and services in the park.
Park officials are expecting a very busy summer season, and visitors are advised to plan accordingly. Grand Teton is implementing preventive measures and mitigation actions to reduce the spread of infectious disease, and is working with federal, state, and local public health authorities.
Adjustments to operations will be made as needed in response to changing pandemic conditions. Most visitor facilities and services will limit the number of people admitted and provide for social distancing.
