We went to the Preserve on a rainy afternoon, which is probably why we were able to park without waiting in line. What a beautiful facility, and so well thought-out. We loved how you park in the lot then have to walk the path through the sage brush to get to the building. Immediately you are immersed in the natural... More

The parking T the preserve is limited which makes the experience peaceful. We saw beaver on our hikes. The views at he Grand Tetons above are amazing.

We took the hike up to Phelps Lake and really enjoyed the view of the lake. We did not have bear spray nor bells to chase away the bears so were a little uncomfortable when we met the park ranger and others who had turned around and headed back down because they had encountered a yearling bear. We put small... More

After searching for a grizzly in Yellowstone for a few days, we were blessed to see a 2-3 yr old grizz in the LR Preserve. He was eating berries and paid little attention to us.

This preserve is outside the National Park on a back road to the Teton village. You might just see elks grazing as we did. Rockefellers did us a great service giving us public the park in the first place and now, Laurance is continuing to serve and educate with this Preserve. The building alone is enough reason for a visit... More

This is an amazing place. Parking is limited in order to prevent crowds on the hiking trails. The ranger led hike was informative and enjoyable for my entire family. The reception center is gorgeous. So worth the visit and free!

This hike from the Rockefeller Preserve parking lot around the lake is almost exactly 7 miles with a lot of elevation changes. Great views of the lake and surrounding sites with every step. The far end of the lake shows the destruction of trees from an avalanche during the winter '14. A very interesting hike. Wear comfortable hiking shoes and... More

Call and reserve a spot on one of the hikes guided by a park ranger. You will learn a lot! Our guide stopped many times during the hike so if you are worried that you won't be able to keep up, you will! Our guide was very passionate about his job. In the introductory talk on the back porch of... More
