Bull Moose, Moose Junction, Grand Teton National Park
There are lots of moose hanging around the Moose Junction Area in Grand Teton National Park.
Moose Junction Area                
The Moose Junction Area in Grand Teton National Park includes places of interest such as the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center, Dornan's Chuckwagon and the Moose-Wilson Road.  Moose Junction, which is the junction of highway 89 and the Teton Park Road, is located about 8 miles north of the South Park Boundary on highway 89, and it's definitely a place to take some time discovering and enjoying.  

One the best things about the Moose Junction Area in Grand Teton National Park is the fact that there are a lot of moose in the area.  Keep an eye out for them because they really love the Moose Junction Area (thus the name MOOSE junction) and can show up anywhere along the road.


Dornan's Chuckwagon: a Grand Teton Tradition
Dornans Chuckwagon, Moose Junction, Grand Teton National Park
A great meal with a great view!  It just doesn't get better than that!  Dornan's Chuckwagon has been in business since 1948, and it is a "must do" when vacationing in Grand Teton National Park.

We just have to mention this special place where you can enjoy a geniune chuckwagon meal cooked over a fire, all the while enjoying an incredible
Dornans Chuckwagon, Moose Junction, Grand Teton National Park
view of the Teton Mountain Range.  This family owned outdoor chuckwagon has been serving Grand Teton Park Visitors since 1948, and if you like real barbecued beef ribs, home-made mashed potatoes, stew, corn bread, and much more, all cooked over a fire, you have got to eat here (and it's all you can eat!).  They also serve a wonderful country breakfast that is also extremely tasty.

And the view while you eat is out of this world!  You'll be eating on lodgepole pine picnic tables on a nice lawn with the Tetons as the backdrop.  It's such a famous place to eat and such a tradition for tens of thousands of visitors, we just had to share this special place with you.

And by the way, near of river at Dornan's is a great place for watching and photographing moose.  They are often seen along the Snake River, near the bridge, and even in the sage brush flats during the fall mating season.  There are also a fair number of black bear roaming around.



Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center
Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center, Moose Junction, Grand Teton National Park
Th Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center is extremely informative, and very "fancy", and is a "must see" while vacationing in Grand Teton National Park.

The Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center in Grand Teton National Park is more like an elaborate museum rather than a basic visitor center.  Beyond it's elaborate decor that includes huge bronze statues of animals and people, it's very educational and interesting, and it gives you a great overview of the Grand Teton National Park and it's amazing history.  There is also a very nice gift shop located in the building.

As you turn at the junction from highway 89 onto the Teton Park Road, toward the mountains, it's just beyond Dornan's on other side of the large bridge that crosses the Snake River.  You can't miss it.


Moose - Wilson Road

This is one of the numerous ponds found along the Moose-Wilson Road in Grand Teton National Park.

Just about a hundred yards up the road from the Craig Thomas Visitor Center (northwest) is the popular Moose-Wilson Road in Grand Teton National Park.  This narrow road works its way through some fantastic moose and black bear habitat, and the scenery is wonderful.  So if you like to see moose and black bears, this is definitely a road to consider taking.  There are several ponds along the road that often have moose in them, and because of the amount of berries in the area during the late summer and early fall, there is a large number of black bear feeding on these berries along the road.

Black bears are commonly seen eating berries along the Moose-Wilson Road in Grand Teton National Park during late summer and early fall.


Death Canyon Trailhead
The Moose-Wilson Road is also where you drive to reach the Death Canyon Trailhead, which we will talk about on another section of this website.  The turn off to the Death Canyon Trailhead is about 3 miles from the start of the Moose-Wilson Road, and if you keep going on the main road, in about two more miles you'll reach the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve which is also a great place to see wildlife.   This is a good spot to turn around if you want to head back to the Teton Park Road (the main highway), but If you want to keep going, that's fine too.  It eventually ends up at the Teton Village.
