My brother and I are going to hike the Grand Tetons this summer.  Can anyone tell me if there is a camping store around the Grand Teton area where we can purchase fuel?  (Propane preferably)

I don't know if the Jenny Lake Store has fuel, but in Dorman's outside the Moose South Entrance Station there is a place called Moosely Seconds that has it. Or look at Teton Mountaineering, Skinny Skis or Jack Dennis Sporting Goods in Jackson for sure.

Where are you guys from? I lived in Jackson for 30 summers, now in Flagstaff AZ.  Moosely Seconds

Thanks, one last question, would someone suggest a route from Salt Lake, UT to the Tetons?

Take I-15 North to Idaho Falls ID, then get on State Hwy 26 to Swan Valley,ID, then 31 to Victor ID, then 22 to get over Teton Pass and down to Wilson WY and across the Snake River to Jackson. Jackson is your best bet for fuel, groceries and supplies.

Then go north on State Hwy 89/26 to the Moose/South Entrance to Grand Teton Nat'l Park.  This will take you to Jenny Lake. Jenny Lake is where you can hike into the heart of the Tetons. Hike the 2.5 miles hiking trail around Jenny Lake to Cascade Canyon and hike up to Hidden Falls, Inspiration Point and Lake Solitude.

Looking at a map of Wyoming? If you drive back from Jackson on 22 and cross the Snake River then take the Wilson/Moose road to Teton Village then take the Aerial Tram there, you can go all the way up to 10,400 feet on the Tram. From there you can hike to Lake Marion, Death Canyon Shelf, Hurricane Pass and Schoolroom Glacier, which is right behind or west of Grand Teton.

Here's some teaser views of the area below:

Looking down South Cascade Canyon in to the main canyon from 9000 feet which is treeline in the Tetons.

There's a Sports Authority in Jackson, too.  It's next to Wendys where Broadway and Pearl Streets meet.

If you happen to go into Teton Mountaineering, find one of the old timers (Chuck, Rex, Neil, John - all old climbing partners) and tell them I said hello!

Thanks for all of your help.  I'm really excited now.  Great pictures.  If I see Chuck, Rex, Neil or John, I'll say hello for you.

There are a few outdoor stores that sell fuel in downtown Jackson Hole WY.
