National Elk Refuge

National Elk Refuge

From April through October, there’s not much to see on this 25,000-some acre plot of land north of Jackson. In winter, though, nearly 8,000 elk, along with several hundred bison, call this area—the National Elk Refuge—home. Watch them from the highway, or experience them by taking a horse-drawn sleigh into the middle of the herd (wool blankets are provided).
