    Excellent Visitor Center with beautiful view and interesting art and artisan exhibit.
    We always go to every National Park visitor center because we like the overview and history that each one showcases. We so enjoyed the Coulter Bay one as it not only did it having a stunning view of the very beautiful Colter Bay, and interesting architecture, but it had a showcase of American Indian artisans on exhibit. Each artist had been a guest artist in their visiting artists' program and the exhibit highlighted their works of art in varied media.

    Convenient stop in Grand Teton
    My family stopped here both days we visited Yellowstone and Grand Teton. I can't speak about the exhibits, but they are conveniently located within Grand Teton National Park. The restrooms were clean, and they have a convivence store too in case you need to stock up on anything.

    Beneficial feature...
    Being early May, most of the complex was still emerging from winter; preparing and restocking for the coming visitor onslaught. The restrooms were clean, the staff were friendly & informative, the exhibits were interesting; and viewing Jackson Lake was calm and leisurely at this time of year. This is yet another beneficial feature, of a wonderous National Park.

We visited here 2014 after spent 3days at yellowstone . We didn’t know about grand Teton so we were so amazed the views but we had to go back home so just ate lunch and used shower room and hit the road so this trip we went from grand Teton. this morning we did lake Jenny hiking it was awesome then came here I felt like lake Jenny was nicer compare to here. Maybe next time I will try the hiking with ranger.

The mountains and marina were a cool combo to see after getting my passport stamped. The place looked pretty busy for the time of year it is.

Conveniently located in Colter Bay Village (near the back of the drive area). Did see bears right outside along Lakeshore Trail. Staff was super friendly and helpful to provide a great experience. Plenty of parking and good shopping/gift options.

We walked and talked with a group of 6 that turned to 10. Everyone was entertained by not only her knowledge but also her passion for her job. She made everyone feel welcome and encouraged us to ask questions. We all learned a lot and would recommend her as a guide.

Stopped in for a stroll around the lake with Elizabeth as our guide. She did a great job showing us around and explaining the lack of water. Very interesting. Elizabeth was delightful.

This is a perfect picture stop. The Grand Tetons in the background over the lake - priceless. We went in the visitor's centre, had a little instruction by a naturalist and enjoyed the scenery. As has been said, the water level is definitely down and the on-land docks without boats at the marina are rather distressing, but like everything else, it is a cycle of nature, to be appreciated and cared for at all times. Elizabeth did a great job instructing us on the difference between horns and antlers

One of the highlights of our trip to Grand Teton was the Colter Bay area. Kathy at the visitor center provided excellent advice on hikes in the area and provided all of the information we needed to know. Well staffed and knowledgeable.
