MOOSE, Wyo. — Grand Teton National Park is now accepting applications for advanced backcountry reservations for the 2021 summer season. Those interested in securing a backcountry camping permit can begin submitting requests beginning today, Wednesday, Jan. 6 until May 15, 2021.
The park opens up one-third of each camping zones campsites for early reservations and saves two-thirds of each zone for walk-in permits. Walk-in permits can be secured one day before the departure of the trip and are on a first-come-first-served basis at the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center, Colter Bay Visitor Center, and Jenny Lake Ranger Station, depending on the backcountry trip. All overnight camping within the park requires a permit.
The fee for walk-in permits is $35. Applicants will be charged a $45 non-refundable processing fee for each reserved trip. Reservation requests can be submitted through the website.
