Curtis Canyon Overlook Interpretive Site


The Curtis Canyon Overlook is an amazing viewpoint, located off of the Curtis Canyon Road # 30440, which stems off the National Elk Refuge Road out of Jackson, Wyoming. It is a dirt parking area with direct, stunning views of the Tetons and the Elk Refuge below. Informational kiosks provide great area information. No other facilities are located on site, although there is dispersed and fee campgrounds nearby. The Curtis Canyon Road is subject to a seasonal closure, and can be difficult in inclement weather or in the spring and fall, but can accommodate trailers when conditions are good. Cellular service is available but can be spotty.
