Located in northwestern Wyoming, Grand Teton National Park boasts stunning mountain scenery and a diverse array of wildlife. The central feature of the park is the Teton Range -- a 40-mile-long mountain front. The range includes eight peaks over 12,000 feet, including the Grand Teton at 13,770 feet. Seven lakes run along the base of the range, and more than 100 alpine lakes can be found in the backcountry.

Elk, moose, pronghorn, mule deer and bison are commonly seen in the park. Black bears are common in forested areas, while grizzlies are occasionally observed in the northern part of the park. More than 300 species of birds can be observed, including bald eagles and peregrine falcons.

Almost all outdoor activities are popular at Grand Teton National Park. In summer you can hike, walk, view wildlife, take photographs, backpack, camp, climb, fish, swim, boat, float, canoe and bike. In winter, skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and sleigh rides are popular activities.

Some activities (such as overnight backpacking, boating, floating, canoeing, fishing and snowmobiling) require fees, permits, licenses or registration. Special regulations may also apply, so take the time to become informed at any visitor center or ranger station.
