The Basics

The vision of snow-capped Teton peaks reflecting off the waters of Jackson Lake ranks among this national park’s most stunning sights. Other than the lodges, the majority of facilities are at Colter Bay, where there’s a marina, visitor center, campground, and store.

Most guided tours of Grand Teton from Jackson Hole, Cody, or West Yellowstone include a stop at the lake, along with other popular park attractions such as Jenny Lake, the Snake River, Chapel of the Transfiguration, and the Maud Noble Cabin.

Great Grand Teton Tour
We enjoyed the views of the Grand Tetons. Our tour guide, Mike took us the road to the Mormon Row, Signal Mountain, Jenny Lake and Jackson Lake. We really enjoyed seeing the wildlife, bison, pronghorn along the Scharkabar (sp) road. He was very informative and personable guide. We were able to look through the scope that he had along to see some of the animals and landscape up close. He was patient as my sister and I couldn't walk too far without taking a break. It was a very enjoyable day.
