LIVE

Grand Teton National Park is located in the northwest corner of Wyoming, just south of Yellowstone National Park and just north of Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Banks

  • There are many local banks in the town of Jackson. There are no banks within the Park, so you will need to go to town to set up a bank account. If you choose to have your paycheck deposited directly into a bank account, you can set this up at check-in or at any time during the season. It takes two pay periods to be activated. Please note that there is NO Bank of America in Jackson. The closest one is 2.5 hours away in Idaho Falls, ID. GTLC will host local bank representatives from Wells Fargo for employees to open bank accounts in Jackson. This usually occurs within the first month of the season.

Shopping

  • Albertsons (grocery and pharmacy) – will cash paychecks for a fee
  • Smiths (grocery, pharmacy, gas) – will cash paychecks for a fee
