Grand Teton National Park Transportation: 9 reviews and 10 photos
Grand Teton National Park is not well served by mass transit and once in the park, you would be hard-pressed to get around without at least a bicycle due to the distances. For most, it is a park most easily visited by your own vehicle. We were on a six-month camping trip around the western US so it was really our only option in order to carry all the gear we needed for our various endeavors.
Grand Teton National Park is located in the western park of Wyoming. It is about 100 miles and 2.5 hours south of the top of Yellowstone National Park to the middle of the Tetons. Jackson, WY is about 20 miles or 40 minutes from Jenny Lake Campground, about the center of the park. Salt Lake City, UT is over 300 miles and 6 hours from that same campground. Idaho Falls is the closest fair-sized city and that is over 100 miles and 3 hours drive due to the mountainous terrain. So, as you can see, this is pretty remote but that, my friend, can be a very good thing.
Grand Teton National Park charges $25 for a car load of people to enter for up to one week. Singles pay $12 for the same privilege. We were using the America The Beautiful Pass which costs $80 and allows unlimited entry into any US National Park or Federally Administered Land for a car load for a 1 year period. This pass surely represents the best value in the world of travel. Enjoy and support US National Parks.
