If you’re looking to be one with nature and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, then visiting Grand Teton National Park is the place to be. This Wyoming state park, not to be confused with Yellowstone, is described exactly how it’s named, as it sits upon the Teton mountain range in the valley known as Jackson Hole. A popular summer destination, you can do a lot of adventurous activities such as mountaineering, hiking, backcountry camping, scenic float trips, and fishing. As exciting as it seems, it may be hard to figure out where to stay around the area (after all, you are in the middle of the woods). We’ve got you covered if you don’t know where to look. We’ve compiled a list of places to stay near Grand Teton National Park to make your trip more memorable.
Although there may be plenty of places to stay, if you’re looking to stay within (or even near) the park, it’s important to note that you should book well in advance. However, here are some of the top places within the park worth staying at:
Any of the Log Cabins in Colter Bay Village
Colter Bay Village is a developed neighborhood full of awesome log cabins out skirting Jackson Lake, the largest lake in Grand Teton National Park. To sway you even more, Jackson Lake has sweeping views of the Teton Range, giving you a breathtaking background.
Each cabin is great for couples’ travels or families and boasts many activities, including kayaking on the lake, hiking, and horseback riding.
Jenny Lake Lodge
Just to prepare you even further, many places to stay in Grand Teton National Park will consist of lodges, which helps keep the tone of nature and being out in the wilderness.
This lodge, in particular, is a luxurious hotel within the park, made up of unique rustic wooden houses at the foot of the Teton Mountains. Although secluded, this lodge is the starting point of many hiking trails. If you don’t feel like hiking, you can always bike on the nearby bike path, go horseback riding, or even visit the glacial lakes in the surrounding area. They’re called Jenny Lake, Leigh Lake, and String Lake.
Jackson Lake Lodge
When you think of visiting Grand Teton National Park, most people immediately hear about Jackson Lake Lodge. This popular site lets you enjoy gorgeous views of Teton Mountain Range and Jackson Lake. They offer plenty of amenities, such as three restaurants and a swimming pool.
Even if you aren’t staying there, the views and restaurants alone are worth visiting!
Headwaters Lodge & Cabins at Flagg Ranch
If you want to go completely off-grid, this might be the place for you. This place to stay gives you no WiFi or cell service, so you are completely enthralled in nature, and it consists of wooden houses placed on the outside of the Snake River. And because it’s so secluded, you may be able to see more bears, moose, and bison.
Furthermore, this is an excellent option for a stay just outside Grand Teton National Park because it’s also between Yellowstone National Park. It is perfect if you’re trying to visit both parks during your stay.
