Flagg Ranch Information Station - Countdown: 34 Days
July 22, 2012
Every day thousands of visitors move between Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks through the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway. Only 300 of those visitors stop each day at the Flagg Ranch Information Station. Located just north of Headwaters Lodge, you will come across a tiny one room log cabin. Here you can stop in and say hi to a friendly National Park Service volunteer. The staff is happy to orient visitors to the area and provide information for your visit to either Grand Teton or Yellowstone Parks, or even your adventures within the Parkway.
Flagg Information Station is open 9am - 3:30pm daily from June 4 - September 3, 2012 and can be reached at 307-543-2372.
