National Parks Close to our Wyoming Dude Ranch
A lot of our guests couple a trip to the ranch with a visit to one or both of the nearby National Parks. Historically, dude ranching and the parks have been intertwined and it’s still a natural pairing.
The entrance into Grand Teton National Park is 75 miles (under 1.5 hours driving time) from the Lazy L&B Ranch and the south gate of Yellowstone National Park is another 25 miles through GTNP. If you’re tight on time and don’t have an extra day to visit, it is possible to make a day trip from the ranch.
Grand Teton National Park
Rising above a scene rich with extraordinary wildlife, pristine lakes, and alpine terrain, the Teton Range stands as a monument to the people who fought to protect it. These are mountains of the imagination. Mountains that led to the creation of Grand Teton National Park where you can explore over two hundred miles of trails, float the Snake River, and enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place.
Yellowstone National Park
Yellowstone was the first national park in the U.S and was established by the U.S. Congress and signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant on March 1, 1872. Yellowstone features dramatic canyons, alpine rivers, lush forests, hot springs and gushing geysers, including its most famous, Old Faithful. It’s also home to hundreds of animal species, including bears, wolves, bison, elk and antelope.
