We went there in October, so the bathroom was locked down, they did have very nice building for the bathroom. We couldn't look at the building which, I am sure had info in them, but everything was closed up.

Very long wait (over an hour) to get in as there is limited parking. If you can walk, there is parking about 1/2 mile away down the road in either direction (you can't park on the road near the Preserve and they do ticket). Look for parking signs. The building is small and has a nature sound room, library, and... More

Laurance Rockefeller Preserve shows what money can do, especially when applied to the natural beauty and wildlife of the Grand Teton National Park area. Slightly off the beaten path, but well known, the preserve consists of one modest building within which are a plethora of delights. From photos of the native plants, animals, mountains and streams to one room solely... More

My husband and I hiked here during our honeymoon in Jackson. It was beautiful and a great place to see wildlife. We saw bear scat on the trail, but thankfully did not see bears. We did see a ruffled grouse, dozens of chipmunks (one of which climbed on us as we rested near a lake), and met other hikers who... More

The Center was closed for the season. We did the hike to the lake. The hike was well marked through the forest, a meadow and along a stream. Beautiful lake.

Nestled just north of Teton Village/Jackson Hole ski resort this forested biome is a short journey from town on a very limited maintained road. The charm is that a lot of people doesn't know even exists. While there for a short while we spotted many deer and a few moose. Definitely worth the drive. You don't ned a four whe3l... More

This is a great half day hiking spot just minutes from Jackson. Beautiful visitor center with unique "sounds of the wild" room. Well kept trails to and around the lake at the base of the Tetons. While part of the National Park, it keeps its unique family retreat character.

Well, you can imagine, if the Rickefellers built their retreat here, this is a corner of paradise not to miss. Their ranch and complex was built on the back of a frontier village, all of which has now been erased, but you can hike up to the lake where it all existed. On the way is a brilliant discovery centre.... More
