Camping and cabins available on BTNF

JACKSON, Wyo. — Bridger-Teton National Forest staff reminds recreationists that there are many developed and undeveloped recreation opportunities available across the Forest for visitor enjoyment.

“Camping and recreating on the Bridger-Teton National Forest is an activity individuals and families look forward to experiencing every summer,” said Mary Cernicek, Bridger-Teton National Forest Public Affairs Officer. “While we understand there may be some excitement from the public as they visit their favorite recreation areas, please continue to follow local, state, and federal Covid-19 guidelines for your safety and that of others enjoying these incredible public lands.”

All camping is first-come, first-served on the Bridger-Teton, and many developed and group campgrounds and all cabin rentals can be reserved through Recreation.gov. Those with cabin rental reservations will be notified via email and/or text message if there are any COVID or non-COVID condition changes through the remainder of the year. Please be aware that cabin rentals will not be cleaned in between renters. As in previous years, it is up to the individual renters to bring their own cleaning supplies, and to clean before and after use of the site. All rental cabins receive a routine pre-season cleaning annually.

All trails and trailheads remain open on the Forest. Please remember to avoid congregating at trailheads and/or parking areas and refrain from gathering in large groups, keeping six-foot distancing from other parties as well.

The Bridger-Teton National Forest continues to monitor COVID-19 and its effects to recreation opportunities on the Forest. Please remember to review the latest recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention along with local and state guidelines for social distancing and cloth face coverings.
