Grand Teton National Park
Grand Teton National Park (GTNP) features the iconic and picturesque Teton Range. As part of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, GTNP is home to extraordinary wildlife, scenic lakes and rivers, and an alpine environment filled with recreational opportunities. This ecosystem is home to the largest concentration of wildlife in the lower 48 states. Elk, bears, bison, moose, bighorns, cutthroat trout, and other wildlife flourish in its abundant habitat. Three of our nation’s most iconic river systems begin their journeys as headwater streams among the mountains and high plateaus in this area. Guests can explore over two hundred miles of trails, float the Snake River, and enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place.
Jackson Hole Airport is located inside GTNP. Because of this unique location, being the only commercial airport in a national park, both the commercial service and general aviation facilities are held to some of the most stringent noise and environmental mitigation measures in the world. We are focused on strengthening our stewardship by working diligently to integrate innovative strategies and best practices to reduce environmental effects of airport operations. We strive to build a sustainable future for Grand Teton National Park, our community, and surrounding areas.
