Grand Teton's Jenny Lake up for Renovation

Jenny Lake Deep Blue by Michael Kirsh

I LOVE Jenny Lake! It's one of my favorite places in the Tetons.  Since there will be renovations be sure to know where you are going if you are hitting the park this summer.

JACKSON, Wyo - This year marks the final summer of construction at one of the most popular destinations in Grand Teton National Park in northwest Wyoming.

Grand Teton spokesman Andrew White says this season's work at Jenny Lake is the fourth and final major construction phase on an $18 million renovation project.

White tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide that all the visitor services are open at the lake but visitors might encounter altered access routes.

A temporary visitor center will be in place this summer with information on alternative routes to the lakeshore, trailhead and east shore boat dock.

Parking will be extremely limited, especially for buses, recreational vehicles and trailers. White recommends arriving either before 9 a.m. or after 4 p.m. to avoid crowds.
