Jenny Lake ferry operator decided for the next decade
JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Grand Teton National Park chose to contract again with Jenny Lake Boating, Inc., to be the provider of boat shuttle service across Jenny Lake each summer.
The concessionaire will provide boat shuttle service, scenic interpretive boat tours, and non-motorized boat rentals at Jenny Lake for the next 10 years, beginning January 1, 2018. Approximately 160,000 visitors are served through this concessions contract each summer.
“Concessioners fill a vital role in helping the National Park Service carry out its mission by offering high-quality commercial visitor services,” said David Vela, superintendent of GTNP.
Jenny Lake Boating held the concessionaire contract since 2008. Proposals were evaluated and selected under the provisions of the 1998 Concessions Management Improvement Act by a panel of National Park Service representatives outside of Grand Teton National Park.
Grand Teton National Park has 26 authorized concessioners that provide visitor services related to lodging, camping, food and beverage, retail, gas stations, marinas and related boat amenities, guided mountain climbing, river floating, lake scenic boating, river and lake fishing, horseback riding, skiing and snowshoeing, transportation and more.
