Celebrate National Park Week

Created on: 2021-04-14

An Amazing Experience Awaits You!

From April 17th to April 25th, 2021, join us in celebrating National Park Week as a time to explore amazing places, discover stories of history and culture, help out, and find your perfect park. Since The Lodge at Jackson Hole is conveniently located near both the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone this particular observance is close to our heart.

The National Parks Belong to You!

National Park Week is America’s largest celebration of national heritage, and enhancing America’s best idea—the national parks. These luscious areas of land and water are designated and protected by the Government of the United States in an effort to preserve the natural and cultural resources for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of current and future generations.

The History & Mystery

A heady mix of adventure and mystique draws people of all backgrounds to National Parks, because you never know what’s around the next bend, or what treasure you may find, or historical fact you may discover. The National Park System comprises monuments and historic battle areas, lakeshores, scenic rivers and beaches. There are more than 400 national park sites recognized in the United States, spanning more than 85 million acres in all 50 states and many territories like the Virgin Islands and Guam.

Yellowstone & Grand Teton

Composed of 2.22 million acres in Northwest Wyoming, Yellowstone National Park was the very first designated National Park. The Park’s stunning landscape includes geothermal structures, forests, lakes, rivers, and mountains — so it’s easy to see why Yellowstone welcomes 4 million visitors annually.

Even though Yellowstone is the more famous of the two, Grand Teton National Park is nearly 500-square-miles of majesty, with epic peaks, including the 13,770-foot Grand Teton, as well as lakes and valleys. This piece of the Western Frontier is teaming with wildlife, hidden waterfalls, and endless photo ops.

Our Neck of the Woods

Jackson Hole is located adjacent to Grand Teton National Park and just 60 miles south of Yellowstone National Park. This makes The Lodge at Jackson Hole the ideal base camp for exploring these two national treasures. For many visitors, Old Faithful, Yellowstone Falls, and the iconic Teton mountains are must-see, bucket list items. Perfect for picnics with the family, camping with friends, or day tours, our close proximity is ideal for any and every excursion into the heart of the beautiful parks.

Get Your Adventure On!

In conjunction with this year’s National Park Week, we are thrilled to offer a special, limited time park package that includes two souvenir hiking water bottles with built-in carabiners, two boxed lunches, and one GaperGuide on the TravelStorys™ app audio tour for Yellowstone & Grand Tetons to help you make the most of your trip with real-time info on history and stop suggestions. With a limited time booking window of April 17- April 25 only, you can book now and stay later (until October 31, 2021 because the parks close to the public on November 1). This opportunity is as rare as the beauty and wildlife of the parks themselves, and includes everything you need to explore and enjoy these precious places.

Henry David Thoreau said, “In wilderness is the preservation of the world.” Our National Parks represent something in all of us that longs for nature, exploration and natural beauty. These mythical landscapes provide more than just vacation destinations; they stoke our curiosity, help us evolve, as well as appreciate the past. Without them, we would not have the course of wisdom to break free, climb a mountain, splash in a river, and marvel at Mother Earth.
