Park staff are collecting data and conducting studies to better understand changing visitation trends in Grand Teton National Park. Historically, July and August have been the busiest months of the year at the park. Recent trends include increased visitation in the spring and fall.
The park is initiating several studies this summer regarding changing visitation, including visitor use and experience studies at Colter Bay, Taggart and Lupine Meadow areas. These studies will survey visitors in these areas to gain a better understanding of visitor demographics, visitor expectations, and more.
A transportation and visitor movement study is also being conducted in late July and early August to gain a comprehensive understanding of transportation and visitor movement to, through, and within the park. This study will help park mangers understand the relationships among the number of vehicles entering the park and the levels of use at key areas within the park. Identifying common visitor traffic patterns and understanding how visitors disperse and move throughout the parks is also part of this study.
Researchers will be surveying visitors and placing a variety of monitoring equipment in the park through mid-August.
All visitors to Grand Teton are highly encouraged to plan ahead, recreate responsibly and help ensure this iconic landscape may be enjoyed by future generations.
