Description: Rich in history, Jackson Hole’s first chuck wagon adventure, the Bar T-5...
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.

We went to this show as a family during our trip to JH. While the overall experience is ok, there is a ton that this family owned operation could do to improve the whole experience. First, if you want families there at 4:30pm, don't leave us sitting on benches for 40 minutes with nothing going on. It would be very... More

This was part of an Uncommon Journeys bus-train tour. We had never experienced anything like this before. It started with a ride up Cache Canyon in a chuck-wagon drawn by a team of horses that created an impression of what the westward migration across the US may have been like. That was followed by a chicken BBQ and a rip-roaring... More

This was great fun! The horses were well cared for, the food was good, and the show was very entertaining. We did the late show and had a great sunset view of the Tetons at the end of the trip!

Not just for kids. Staff was friendly a helpful. Clarify directions with them. You do have to drive though a neighborhood, so if you didn't know, it could be confusing. They pull plenty of people on stage to help with a song, so fun photo opportunities. Food was good for the type of venue. Plenty of food for seconds and... More

The food was excellent, but the entertainment was spectacular.The wagon ride added to the charm. There were many people, but there were no perceivable delays with departure to the dinner, nor getting so many people fed. Well done folks

I loved this place. My rental's navigation system could not find this place. Leave plenty of time just in case...Everyone is very nice. The ride in the covered wagon was fun. The brownies and hot chocolate must not be missed! The singing and food is just average, but the experience was very enjoyable. I'm glad we made time.

While visiting Jackson Hole, this was high on our to-do list. We were certainly not disappointed. In addition to the authentic wagon train experience (along with cowboys and Indians) we learned a lot about the history of Jackson Hole. When the covered wagons reached our destination in the woods, we feasted on a very tasty all-you-can-eat dinner featuring chicken and/or... More

Great place for some old west flavor. Nice "covered wagon" ride up to dinner with a surprise or two to make it interesting. Good hearty food with entertainment. Especially good to do with kids. If they sit up front there is a chance the wagon driver will let the kids help by holding the reins.

My son received the honors of steering Smith and Weston along the trail. Ambushed by Indians, crazy cowboys, huge amount of food (can go back for seconds...thirds)... The entertainment - really good, and smart as well - as they engage the kids during the show. Family had a blast , 10 out of 10
