Description: Rich in history, Jackson Hole’s first chuck wagon adventure, the Bar T-5 began in 1974 by giving people a chance to step back and experience a time gone by, a time when they traveled by horse drawn covered wagons. Now you can join us at the Bar T-5 and make your own Western History. Climb aboard a horse drawn covered wagon just as they did in the early days of Jackson Hole for an adventure unlike any other. You’ll experience an evening filled with great Western Hospitality.Traveling along a clear mountain stream, you’ll follow a winding trail into the tall timber of the Bridger-Teton National Forest to a camp in the heart of the canyon. Watch out there may be surprises along the way, after all this is the West! Arriving at camp the wagons are circled and the aroma of a Cowboy style Dutch oven dinner greets you. Enjoy our home cooked BBQ Chicken, Roast Beef in Gravy, our famous Bar T 5 Beans and more. After dinner you can sit back and relax to the sounds of music and laughter as our cowboys take the stage. Enjoy the harmony of The Bar T 5 Band bringing your favorite cowboy songs to life! With Guitars, Fiddles and Fun for all, you’ll find yourself joining in throughout the night.The evening ends as the wagons head home from a place and time you’ll never forget.....The Bar T-5 Covered Wagon Cookout & Show. We are close by, located just 1 ½ miles SE of downtown Jackson. The wagons are ready to roll evenings, Monday through Saturday, mid-May through the end of September. The evening lasts about 3 hours. At camp you are under a covered pavilion that is heated if necessary. Reservations are requested.To find out more about how to join us and make your own Western History please give us a call.

Great family fun! My children, 12 and 10,were excited for the covered wagon ride. Our driver Chuck, was very friendly. The food was tasty, even my picky eaters ate everything, and the show was lively and entertaining. The band was really good, especially the fiddle player. Highly recommend the Bar 5 T chuck wagon.

A tiny bit of history... traveling to dinner in a chuckwagon with rubber tires was as close to history as we got- but LOTS of fun. Our "wagon master" shared area history and folk lore; dinner was really good and there was PLENTY of food for eveyone... You could go back for as much as you wanted. The "show" after... More

I disagree, this whole experience lacked authenticity, taste and was, frankly cringe-worthy. From the inaccurate depiction of indians, to the crude reference to women and "strange folk", Bar T 5 cookout ticked every box but a positive one. Perhaps my family missed the humor in the skits, but my 9 year old wasn't buying it. Food, sure, it was ok... More

We did the Bar T5 Covered Wagon Cookout trip on June 26, 2014. The covered wagon ride added a lot to the evening. Our guide Ashley was great and the horses beautiful. The meal was not gourmet but was very tasty and appealing for a country cookout and the food was plentiful and service was great. We all enjoyed the... More

Lots of fun when on a covered wagon ride for about 20 minutes where we were attacked by Indians, then taken to a covered pavilion where we had a dinner and a show. Everyone in our group enjoyed it.

If you like food with a BBQ flavor and "cowboy" music then you will love this place. The price is a great value for a delicious meal AND THE SHOW !!! It's one of the things we have on our "must do" list every time we go to Jackson.

The Bar J Chuckwagon on the Village Road is much better for this type of event. Skip this one in town and cross the Snake...worth it.

This is not the style of entertainment I would normally go for, however I did find it ok. Travelling on the wagon was good fun, the food was surprisingly good and the entertainment professional.

A very entertaining trip on the wagons to dinner in the "woods". The buffet-style dinner was very good. Their little variety show was fun. A good alternative to another restaurant dinner when you're traveling with kids.
