National Elk Refuge - Review
Incepted in 1912 with an aim to provide a natural reserve to the significant Elk herd of Jackson Hole along with many other endangered species around, the refuge today has become one of the rare places in the world to witness these beautiful animals in their own habitat. Apart from elk, there are various birds, fishes, bisons, deer and other animals being preserved and managed in this refuge daily. For travellers planning to visit, must go there in winters as that is the only time when the sanctuary comes alive with wildlife specially elks flocking the place. The elk refuge has been spread over an area of 24,700 acres and provides a fresh breath of air for tourists who wish to delve into nature’s beauty for a while and enjoy its quiet and placid magic.

National Elk Refuge , Jackson Hole Reviews
Great opportunity for wildlife viewing. If you don't have a spotting scope, you can usually find a nice group who will let you take a peek through theirs. It's very much WILD... We got to observe a cougar feasting on an elk she had taken down. There's warnings about the sheep coming down to lick the salt off the cars in winter, but they all stayed on the ridge while we were there.
Awesome place with great views of the Tetons. Didn't actually see any elk, but it is a nice drive. I would recommend it!
A place of majestic beauty both in the landscape and the wildlife present! We saw lots of bison, elk, mountain bluebirds and pronghorn during our travels through the refuge in the shadow of the Tetons. Tremendous!
It may have been windy and cold but it was sure a lot of fun riding on a horse-drawn wagon to see the elk
Great place for a nice long walk. In winter great for animal watching.
