Grand Teton National Park has 27 concessioners and almost 120 commercial use authorization holders that provide a variety of visitor services in the park.
Concessions contracts are long-term contracts between the National Park Service and a business to provide visitor services that are necessary and appropriate in achieving the mission of the park, including providing for visitor enjoyment. Contracts may be in effect for many years, and may involve the use and care of federal facilities and assets.
Commercial use authorizations allow visitor services in the park that may be appropriate but not necessary. This type of agreement does not exceed two years, but businesses can reapply for them. Commercial use authorizations do not involve the use and care of federal facilities and assets.
