    Great in combination with Yellowstone
    The Grand Teton National Park is great and very easy to visit in combination with Yellowstone. The Teton Mountain range provides a magnificent backdrop to many of the scenic views available along the way. After traversing Grand Teton, Jackson is a nice touristic place to stay for a night.

    Simply Stunning
    The views in this park are arresting. Taking in the Teton, range, it can be difficult to look away it is so beautiful. We have visited many national parks out west, and without taking anything away from them, the views here cannot be beat. A bucket list national park for sure.

    Fantastic visit with husband and toddler
    So, so beautiful. Visited Memorial Day weekend and there were plenty of people but didn’t seem overly crowded. 3 full days in the park and I’m sure we could have spent even more time. On the 4th day, stopped at Sleeping Indian Overlook and Albright View Overlook for sunrise before out 7a flight out of JAC. Pro tip: sit on the left side of the plane for takeoff and right side of the plane for landing to view the Tetons from the air.

    Nice park if you like to hike
    We came here after viewing Yellowstone, which was amazing. If you like to hike, come here. We toured by car and exited the car infrequently due to time constraints, so we likely didn’t get the full experience possible. It was beautiful but we couldn’t help making comparisons to the other parks we visited, which we found to be even more interesting and beautiful.

    Absolutely AMAZING!
    Amazing! Beautiful! Breathtaking! Those are just a few words to describe this gorgeous place. We visited the park and surrounding areas for 4 nights and 5 days and loved every single minute of it. If you love to hike then this is the place for you, there are some amazing trails for all skill levels. We also got to see tons of wildlife including a moose and her baby and a grizzly mama and her three cubs. You never tire of seeing the gorgeous mountains and it’s amazing that their appearance will kind of change with the weather. It would be almost impossible to not enjoy this place.

    Grand Teton National Park
    Grand Teton National Park is a large national park in Wyoming. The city of Jackson Hole is quite close to the park. We stayed at Colter Bay, near Jackson Lake. There are many things to do in the park. We went Kayaking on Jackson Lake. You can just push off from the swim beach, or use a boat ramp. (You first have to get your boat inspected for invasive species. This costs $25, and the inspection is mandatory.) We also did the ferry boat on Jenny Lake to go to Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point. The ferry is not free, but there is a 2 mile or 5 mile hike to get to the same place. The view from Inspiration Point is amazing, and the hike to get up is a little steep, and is about 1 mile. Also, the ferry stops if there is lightning in the area, so make sure to check the weather. In the town of Jackson Hole, there is a great ice cream place called Moo's. The Huckleberry Ice Cream there is really good. You can see some really great wildlife in Grand Teton. If you want to see elk and moose, you should come in the late fall/ early winter. The views of the mountains are also really good.

    Wonderous and magnificent....
    Visiting here was truly a wonderful bucket-list experience. Originally we were going to explore Yellowstone for three days, and the Tetons for two. With the delay in the opening of the south entrance to Yellowstone, due to late snow fall; we had to reverse our timing. Certainly, nothing was lost by having more time in the Tetons. The mountains, lakes, panoramic views and wildlife encounters, created memory upon memory. Watching the Park emerge from its winter shadings, was a fascinating and rewarding exploration. Being early May, we were able to maintain a leisurely pace, pullover as desired, and not impede others. We saw black bear, elk, moose, bison and big horn sheep. Though the Lodges were not yet open, they were accessible; allowing one to see staff preparing Park facilities for the coming visitor onslaught. This country encompasses so much wonderous and magnificent beauty; and this area certainly holds its share.

    Bucket List Item
    Grand Teton Park has been a Bucket List Item for us for some time, and this year we finally made it there. Back in 1923, a meeting was held on land that would become the park. Businessmen with a vision, and ranchers and the Yellowstone Park Superintendent hatched a plan that was the beginning of everything. Today, there is so much to see and do that one review could never be enough to describe this magical place. Water, hiking, visitor centers, camping, cabins, boating, wildlife, lodges, and restaurants, the most photographed place in the world, are just the beginning. We had one and a half long days. It was just barely enough. Restrooms Modern restrooms are located at Visitor Centers and Campgrounds. Dog-friendliness Dog are allowed where cars can go. They must be securely leashed and with their owners. They ae not allowed in Park buildings, with the exception of support animals. Picnic area Picnic areas are located at campgrounds and some of the overlook areas.

    Beautiful, but underwhelmed
    My mom and I visited Grand Teton during a 10 day trip from Washington to Florida and we are glad we stopped, but are also glad that it was only half a day! We started our day early in Yellowstone and drove into Grand Teton from the north end. We stopped at multiple scenic points to take pictures, especially the famed Mormon Row, and got some great pictures. We were disappointed that we did not see any wildlife (bears, moose, elk, etc.) but figured that was because we stayed on the main roads. To me, this seems like a park that is more focused on the "off-road" things like hiking, boating, and kayaking. Overall, we were underwhelmed, honestly, since it seemed like we just looked at the same mountain range from different spots over and over. Maybe the experience would have been different with some hikes/walks, but we only had a limited amount of time to explore before heading to Jackson Hole for the evening!

    Just beautiful
    Stunning mountains and beautiful rivers and lakes. We aren't hikers or outdoorsy people so we did most of our sightseeing from the car and from the various pullouts. Sadly the weather was not the greatest, but the mountains were still beautiful shrouded in clouds and mist. This is one of those parks that's easily accessible and that everyone should visit.

We visited grand Teton national park on 24th of April 2021. The drive to grand Teton national park was awesome. The mountains looked beautiful. As we planned to visit Yellowstone after grand Teton; we purchased a one day pass for $15. Walking with little kids was tough in the cold weather, we went halfway to Jenny lake but turned back.
I would definitely come when the roads are open to check the whole park.

I absolutely love this gorgeous national park! If you have limited time the entire park can be seen in a day but I recommend at least 3 or 4 days in order to take your time and enjoy some of the hikes. There are several hikes ranging from easy to strenuous. The current cost is $35 per car for a week pass, or you can purchase an annual national park pass for $80, which gives you access to all national parks, national monuments, and forests! If you are 62 or older take advantage of the lifetime pass for $80! No masks are currently required if you are fully immunized. Make sure to keep up to date on road closures and openings thru the the nps.gov website.

Absolutely beautiful! The Teton peaks are amazing and the meadows are gorgeous. The golden leaves of the Aspen trees, in all their yellow glory, against the powerful gray of the mountains is something I won't soon forget. We were lucky enough to see a bison, a moose and her baby, and many pronghorn sheep during our drive. Jenny Lake is absolutely serene and crystal clear! It truly is uplifting and joyful to take some time in the Grand Tetons park. Please note, however, that signage is a bit misleading in the park. Along the main road, before turning into GTNP, a sign says that Yellowstone is 55 miles away. Yes, it is... to the very border of Yellowstone. Old Faithful Geyser is another 1.5 or 2 hours away into Yellowstone. Also, within GTNP intself, many of the stopping points ( restaurants, gas stations, gift shops, etc.) are closed at this point in the year. The only indication of this is right at the entrance to the Park where you pay to go in. If you miss the posting, you will not know that the service area you're aiming for is closed. One last mention is that Jenny Lake is certainly worth stopping at. Smaller than Jackson Lake, it is nonetheless gorgeous. There is a sign saying that a good hike near the lake is 2.8 miles. Not being hikers, or even having water or such for a hike, we decided to do it. But we could not figure out what the 2.8 mile length brought you to. There are no further signs. It is clear to the eye that the lake is definitely a long hike to go all around, probably more like 10 miles at least. There was mention of a waterfall at some point, but again no signage to tell you where. We asked people coming the other way what their experience was. Many had hiked for a greater part of the day and since it was 3:30 p.m. or so, they did not advise going onward. (Plus, they probably summed us up as "newbies" too.) Hate to say anything at all negative about GTNP because the visit was something I will never forget... beautiful, wild, stunning. Just a few more signs or notices or such would make it a more time managed and safer experience.

Very soon after you drive south into the park from Yellowstone you come to the Colter Bay visitor center. From the parking lot and all hikes in the area you are blown away by the view of Grand Teton and Mount Moran. We took a hike around the visitor center and along the lake and even on a cloudy day it was beautiful. That being said, for our money, the 2 mountains are about the only spectacular sights in this park. We did the entire loop road and once you get far enough east, it is pretty unspectacular.

We loved the opportunity to stay inside the National Park at Colter Bay Cabins for 2 nights. Very convenient with power and heated water, private bathrooms in cabins. There are multiple options around the park to stay in more tent-like cabins with shared facilities and campgrounds.

A great little grocery store within Colter Bay with icecream, coffee and deli counter! Grabbing a quick breakfast was not a problem. If you want to opt for a dine-in experience, check out Mural Room (reservations are required). We loved the expansive views the wall to wall windows Mural Room offered; and the service + food was great!

There's a lot of activities to do. We especially loved the ferry across Jenny Lake to Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point. I was in awe of Wyoming's beauty and the views this treasure of a National Park offers.

Tip: Yellowstone is 1.5 hours away; consider upgrading to an Annual Pass for National Parks if you intend to visit 2+ parks.

I loved this park and wish I had more time to explore it! The views are just spectacular. How the mountains are with the sky provides several breath taking views. Photos do not do justice to how beautiful this area is in person. The park provides lots of opportunities for hiking for all abilities. There are hikes for the novice to the most experienced hiker. There are several bike trails if you are into biking. I am not. The key to this park is GO EARLY! By mid morning it gets crowded. We always went early to our hikes and had no problems with parking. One hike by Jenny Lake, we were finished by about 11:00 a.m. and the parking lots were full and people were parking on the entrance drive and on the highway.

Absolutely stunning place to visit. A plethora or trails and hikes for all ages. We stayed here 2 days on our way to Yellowstone.
I recommend Jenny lake and hiking to Hidden falls and Inspiration Point and into Cascade Canyon. You can even take a shuttle across Jenny Lake to cut the hike.
Moose-Wilson Road is a great drive to see moose. Go early!
See Mormon Row.
Hike Taggart lake or Phillips lake but go early as most trail heads fill up.
Visit the town of Jackson!

We got into the park a little late on the first day and was able to take the Teton Park Rd., North past Jenny week and Leigh lake where it met up with 191 and 26. The first day was mostly sitting drives on Teton Park Road past the lakes. While at Jenny Lake we got word that Bear # 399 was running around the snake river with her four cubs. This itself is a miracle for a grizzly to have four cubs. The next day was spent climbing into Delta lake. We made the mistake of not seeing the Helen that was placed on the trail head leading into the lake and ended up going all the way up to disappointment peak. This was an additional two extra hours of climbing but well worth the view.

Me and my 13 yo grandson spent two days in GTNP in July and I wish I had more time. The scenery is absolutely spectacular. Go early to avoid traffic at the gate; we were in the park by 7 a.m. We couldn’t do a lot of hiking because I have a bad knee but that didn’t detract from the trip at all. We loved it! The most traffic we saw was at Jenny Lake and it was very, very crowded with lots of people parked on the side of the road. I planned this trip in my head for 10 years and I was not disappointed. I’ll be going back soon and if you are thinking about going, do it! You won’t be disappointed.

Well worth the stay to see this wonderful park. We are driving cross country and Yellowstone was too big and cold for this trip. An hour or so south is the Grand Teton Park. IT is beautiful and manageable for a short trip. We went to Signal Mountain Rd, and looked at Jackson Lake, drove up the overlook to see the scenic view which is magnificent, drove done to North Jenny Lake entrance and walked around String Lake and part of Leigh Lake. Admired the view everywhere we went. Was a wonderful day and turned out to be a warm warm one even in October (the next day snowed so no hiking for us)!
