We've done Bar-T-5 years ago when we vacationed in Jackson Hole, so we took friends with us on this vacation, July 2016. The Good: * They've built on to their office/check-in area. This was an improvement! * The wagons are the same & still a nice unique experience. * Wagon drivers very nice & friendly. * The food was good.... More

It's a little hokey but you know you want to do it. The covered wagon cookout is good food and good fun. It's not fine dining but it is a fun western style evening that is family friendly.

This was a great experience for the entire family. We took a covered wagon up into the Tetons for a wonderful dinner and great cowboy show. The boys helped drive our wagon team up the canyon. Our wagon was "attacked" by Native Americans adding to the fun. Dinner was delicious and included roast beef, BBQ chicken, corn on the cob,... More

Beginning with my original request for space on one of the covered wagons, I needed to know if such an experience could accomodate 2 vegetarians and 4 gluten-free (celiac) diners. I received a very prompt response informing me of the options that would be made available for those members of our party, and the attention to these needs carried through... More

What a fabulous time! While waiting to get started, we listened to an Interesting and informative history of the Bar T-5 family. That done....we headed to the horse drawn covered wagons. Once inside the wagons, we headed to our dinner destination thru the woods. Remember...we are traveling back in time...so you may get attacked by Indians! What a thrill! Arriving... More

If you are by yourself, a couple, or a family this is a fun activity to do in the evening. You get to go on a covered wagon ride to where you will have your meal, that was delicious. Then you get to be entertained by some of the cowboys with audience participation. Then it a trip back in the... More

Riding in a covered wagon, being attacked by an Indian. Did you ever imagine? Such fun, great food, and fabulous entertainment. If you are near Jackson Hole this is a must see. Don't forget your camera! This is not a restaurant. It is a chuck wagon cook out and show.

The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The horses were beautiful. The wagon train started at the edge of town and ended at a pavilion in the forest outside of town. Indians on horses approached the wagon train and pretended to be dangerous. Entertainment was provided following dinner. The food could use improvement which is the reason I can't rate... More

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.
