Didn't find anything telling me Elk were only there in Winter months. Beautiful land but don't waste your time in summer.

We drove out onto the refuge and were amazed with the scope of the facility. We were there in the summer so the elk were not present. Would like to be able to see it in the winter when the animals are there.

We didn't see any animals but would love to come back in the winter to see all the elk. It is a beautiful protected area that is near town and easily accessible on the way to Teton park entrance from town.

Did not see any animals due to it being summer. We still enjoyed the beautiful scenery but would have loved to haven seen elk or any wildlife.

Driving through the Elk Refuge was one of the highlights of our trip. We got to see hundreds of beautiful buffalo from a relatively short distance! We also were able to spot several Antelope, and even a few elk on the hillside! Coupled with the beautiful scenery, seeing these animals was simply breathtaking!
