Elk, moose, mule deer, bison and pronghorn, are commonly found in the park. Black bears roam the forests and canyons, while grizzlies range throughout more remote portions of the park. More than 300 species of birds can be observed, including bald eagles, peregrine falcons and trumpeter swans.

Almost all outdoor activities are popular at Grand Teton National Park. In summer you can hike, walk, view wildlife, take photographs, backpack, camp, climb, fish, swim, boat, float, canoe, and bike. In winter skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling are popular activities.
Some activities (such as overnight backpacking, boating, floating, canoeing, fishing and snowmobiling) require fees, permits, licenses, or registration. Special regulations may also apply, so take the time to become informed at any visitor center or ranger station.
