Visit Grand Teton National Park throughout the year.
Any time of the year is a good time to visit Grand Teton National Park. Most visitors come in July and August when the days are warm and there is much to see and do. We also get a lot of visitors, though not as many, in September and October, when the days are still pleasant and the night are getting cool. This time of year the park is less crowded but the animals are still very active, and there is a much better chance of spotting elk.
The winter season in the park is altogether different. It’s very beautiful in winter, and appeals to those visitors who enjoy snowshoeing, and downhill, or cross country skiing. The main park road remains open all year, but the Teton Park Road north of Cottonwood Creek is closed due to snow from November to April. Valley trails can be covered with snow until well into May, so plan your spring trips with that in mind.
No matter what time of year you are visiting, it is always important to drive carefully on park roads where wild animals roam. Moose will often use roads to travel on, and elk, mule deer, and bison wander around at night. Driving at safe speeds, being alert for wildlife, and driving only during the day can help you avoid colliding with animals in the park.
Just remember, any time of year is a great time to stay at Luton’s Teton Cabins. We welcome guests to our cabin getaway year round.
