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.

1987 took my boys on the wagon train trip! An amazing adventure we talk about to this day! My oldest was so inspired he is now a tour guide to all of the National Parks in the USA and a scenic photographer! All because of this trip! We have now all moved from Florida to the West because of this... More

Worth the price ... ride in a covered wagon pulled by two horses and a driven by one of the "family" members and be transported back in time to the olden days of wagons and kettle cooking. Tourists meet at their gathering spot and then ride through a canyon to an open air picnic area where a chuck wagon dinner... More

This was an optional extra event on our Cosmos tour and initially we were not sure if it would be worth it but now that we have experienced it, we are so pleased we went. The experience commences with a short talk about the family history and then we boarded the covered wagons for a interesting drive by a friendly... More

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
