JACKSON, Wyo. – Rendezvous River Sports of Jackson was selected by the National Park Service to provide guided multi-day lake trips on Jackson Lake as a park concessioner within Grand Teton National Park.
The new 10-year concession contract begins January 2020. The contact authorizes multi-day trips for non-motorized watercraft—typically kayaks—on Jackson Lake. It also requires the upkeep of three lakeshore campsites and allows for guided float trips on the Snake River as part of a multi-day lake trip on Jackson Lake.
Guided multi-day lake trips are currently provided by OARS West, Inc. through a contract which became effective January 1, 2010, and will expire on December 31, 2019.
“This was a very competitive prospectus, through which the National Park Service received quality offers that bolstered measures for resource protection, the quality of visitor experience, and other factors complementary to our mission,” said Jennifer Parker, Chief of Commercial Services for NPS.
Grand Teton National Park has 27 concessioners and almost 120 commercial use authorization holders that provide a variety of visitor services in the park.
The National Park Service solicited proposals for this business opportunity from March 25 through September 12, 2019.
