I spent the last day of my vacation at the preserve. It is a quiet, peaceful, and serene place. It's easy to sit, reflect, and lose track of time at the lake while taking in all the scenery. The hike was a perfect conclusion to my trip.

One of my favorite hikes in all of the Tetons. The reserve has a building with lots of history if you do not want to take a hike. In the peak of busy season it can be hard to find a parking spot... but well worth the wait

great day. Best advice, make sure you are here before 10am. We had to wait 1 hr for a parking spot. Well worth the wait though. Also you cannot park in this lot if you have a RV.

Hike up through the alpine meadow and through the stand of aspens to Phelps Lake - you can picnic at the lake's edge (pack out what you pack in) - and perhaps climb to the overlook above the lake. When you make it back to the visitor's center, spend some time next to the fireplace, contemplating the things you've seen... More

Got a wagon ride with blankets. Got to see the antelope up close. The tour guide was very informative. The group was able to ask questions as we went. Interesting how they identified specific antelope as same ones that had been coming year after year.

I live nearby and often come to the Rockefeller Perserve for a lovely hike in the summer! The trails are filled with beauty, nature, and all of the sights and sounds of the great outdoors! The parking situation is sometimes difficult, so get there early or be prepared for a wait. The rangers are highly organized and will get you... More

We had a family reunion activity to visit this spot. So beautiful. The Rockefeller family had good vision in where they put their money!

Why is this place advertised as a place to see, when access is denied. Thankfully, it's only a short distance from the entrance to the denied areas.

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
