I have been here before, but every time I visit Grand Teton National Park I make a point to return. I feel so thankful that Mr. Rockefeller saved it, so the public is able to visit here. To get here, take the Moose Wilson Road. You will have a chance to see wildlife on your drive, including Moose, Owls, Eagles,... More

What a wonderful area! A short hike takes you to the beautiful lakeshore. An easy way to explore the Tetons. Watch for bear!

The LSR is housed in a small silver LEED building off the Moose-Wilson Road, just over a mile from Phelps Lake. Insurance designed it to engage visitors' senses, not their cerebral cortex. It features very intimate panoramic videos of the local forest & its residents during all four seasons. Buses are not allowed on this access road, and parking is... More

When Lawrence Rockefeller announced in 2001 he was donating his 1,100 Inholding on the shores of Phelps Lake to Grand Teton National Park, it can be imagined some family members were dismayed who would miss the prime vacation getaway they had enjoyed for decades. Similarly Members of the local historic preservation movement were sad at the proposed movement of structures... More

The Rockefeller is off the Wilson-Moose between Teton village and Moose, WY. It is a short quiet walk from parking lot to the center. A beautiful and creative center to honor the Rockefeller family and its contribution to helping preserve the natural beauty of western Wyoming. Take another short walk to the rushing creek just west of the center. Im... More

While driving along the Moose Wilson Road, headed south from Moose, we encountered the entrance to the Laurance Rockefeller Preserve on the left. We were late in the afternoon and the visitor center was closed, but the bathrooms were available. We looked around and read some information and realized that there were trail connectors to the Phelps Lake Loop Trail... More

This is a relatively new attraction very near the entrance to Teton National Park. A fee is required, and parking is limited - they recommend you come early to get a parking place, because you can only park in designated spaces. There is a wonderful visitor center which is very informative and attractive. The trail is very well kept, and... More

One really should not visit Jackson Hole without spending at least a morning in the Rockefeller Preserve. Our family and two others did the hike around Phelps Lake on a gorgeous, not-too-hot July morning. Very pleasant, mainly flat. Follow the trail clockwise and about 3/4 of the way around, there's a huge rock with about a 30-foot drop into the... More
