Mountain lovers and backcountry hikers would do well to choose the South Entrance. The entire southern section of the park, about one quarter of the The Tetons are some of the most strikingly beautiful mountains in the world. Whole, is remote mountain country of undeveloped high meadow and forest. The southeast section of the park, together with large areas outside park borders, comprises a vast wilderness, probably the largest area in the contiguous United States without roads. If your main goal is canoeing or fishing on Lewis and Shoshone lakes, the South Entrance is for you. This is also one of the two closest ways to reach Yellowstone Lake. Within a half-day’s drive outside the park’s South Entrance are wonderful examples of the beautiful scenery for which Wyoming is famous.
The mountains and lakes of Grand Teton National Park are visited annually by one million more people than visit Yellowstone. Each corner of Jackson’s central square is adorned with elk antlers. The largest town in the area is Jackson, serving visitors summer and winter and located about 58 miles (93 km) south of Yellowstone. Smaller Wyoming towns somewhat farther from Yellowstone but with less expensive tourist facilities are Dubois to the southeast of Yellowstone and Alpine on the Idaho/Wyoming state line. Dubois is 83 miles (134 km) from the South Entrance; Alpine is 37 miles (60 km) south of Jackson.
