Thank you to the Rockefeller family for donating this land. Highly recommend hiking around crystal clear Phelps lake. If you are adventurous, take a jump off the rock, 30' into the lake. Don't skip a visit through the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve Center.

It was well worth the drive to enjoy this beautiful display of nature. It made me be thankful for the Rockefellers, who so generously preserved this gorgeous scenery.

Don't bother - one can wait in line for an hour for a parking place in the small parking lot. There are other places such as Jenny Lake where the parking situation is much better.

This place was recommended by our Jenny Lake tour boat guide who said it one of his favorite places in the park. It is an interesting building in a beautiful setting. We also did a Ranger hike to the lake that starts from here. You can sign up inside the building. Everyone liked that too. Note that parking is very... More

Great area for a small or large hike. Good bathrooms and parking. Beautiful waterfall, creek views, bridges, and easy hike to Phelps Lake. One can choose the intensity of their hike by continuing around the lake.

We had 5 children ages 1, 3, 4, 6, and 8. I am also 7 months pregnant. We were able to do this hike fairly easily. Phelps lake is beautiful and there are some nice spots along the way. The kids and some adults put their toes in the lake when we got there and got great pictures of the... More

We visited this part of Grand Teton National Park and found a really comfortable lodge and reading room and an easy hike through the forest.

We went to the LPR, visited the Visitor Center (could have spent a lot more time there--very unusual approach to a VC) and took the hike around Phelps Lake. It is a delightful hike, appropriate for all ages that are slightly fit (there were a lot of youngsters along the trail). There is a "beach" at one end so if... More

Parking is tight, but the rangers are super helpful. It is roughly a 1.6 mile walk to Phelps lake. Sort of uphill walk the whole way there, but worth it. Phelps lake is beautiful.

The best thing about the Preserve is that it only allows a small number of people to visit it at a time. This makes the hiking undistracted and unique. The Visitor's Center is modern and amazing. The Preserve is a gem in the National Park.
