If you ever wanted to get close to elk this is your chance. Fun sleigh ride among 100's of elk. Don't forget to check out the National Museum of Wildlife Art while your at it.
Riding among the herds of Elk on the horse drawn wagon is a wonderful experience - the elk accept the wagon as a non-threatening friend bringing food! The magnificent bulls and young bucks joust away in grand fashion oblivious of their visitors! Thousands of elk on this beautiful range is a breathtaking experience not to be missed.
Most people do not realize that the Elk are not on the Refuge in the summer. Only in the winter do the elk come to the refuge. They are gone by April. There are no cars allowed on the refuge but the road going behind the refuge is open. Lots to see back there too, Bison, Elk, Big Horn Sheep,... More
Took the family on this horse drawn giant sleigh ride into the middle of a very large herd of elk. They came right up to us and it was fascinating seeing them so close. First they are huge animals and watching them eat, fight & play was a real treat
Not a shopper and a lover of the outdoors I drive out into the refuge not expecting the beauty. There were buffalo and antelope galore. The Tetons serve as an awesome backdrop. So if you won't to enjoy the solitude and are like me not a shopper check it out.

We went to the a Elk Refuge in hopes of seeing at least one elk but didn't. There was a lone bison hanging out and warning of a grizzly bear sighting a few weeks before our arrival which was very exciting. Although the road was pretty rough and bumpy, the trees were turning beautiful fall colors.
We have visited the National Elk Reserve several times in the last five years. Our last trip was during Hunting Season. It was interesting to watch the migrating herds avoiding the hunters. They seem to know the Teton National Park boundaries and also travel after sundown when hunting is forbidden. The main road gets jammed at night as they cross... More
We visited the Elk Refuge on our honeymoon, & it was incredible. The guides were very friendly & knowledgeable about the animals, their migration & feeding habits, as well as the conservation efforts of the Refuge to help the Elk survive now that they have become dependent on humans. We drove a lovely sleigh right through the middle of the... More
