Many visitors to the National Elk Refuge, especially during the summer months, also plan to visit some of the other federal lands in the area, including the Bridger-Teton National Forest and Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks. Area travel maps are available to pre-plan your trip. You're encouraged to print the maps prior to starting your trip. This will help you find your way here and serve as a key planning tool during your visit.
