Beautiful, spectacular and thoroughly exciting. We saw moose, pronghorn antelope, deer, lots of elk including a couple of large bulls and a bear that came a little closer than I would have liked. It was a black bear that was just passing through and was vey uninterested in us.

Moose Wilson Road is a great place to see bear and moose; however, do not be surprised to see hundreds of other cars riding back and forth on the same road as you are on. It is about 9 miles long. The LR Preserve is a great place for family and kids.

We stopped here for a quick hike to Phelps Lake. While we were there, a bear was visiting near the visitor's center. We got to spend quite a bit of time watching the bear eat berries from the nearby bushes. It's a serene place, but tends to be rather busy and popular. Parking is limited to about 40 cars, but...

Breathtaking preserve, beautiful visitor's center! We came here in mid-afternoon and although the parking lot was full, we waited only a brief time for a spot to park. The preserve has an easy hike to Phelps Lake. Although the park is crowded, we never felt it on the hike or eating lunch at the lake. There is something magical in... More

Just drove through but there were nice views and early morning wildlife. We saw Bison by the road on one side and small deer on the other.

Our first trip to Jackson Hole but it won't be our last - staying away from the touristy center of Jackson, we ended up going north into the National Park and took a side trip to the Laurance Rockefeller Preserve. Absolutely beautiful and very peaceful, you have a choice of several short hikes either up to and back from the... More
