Answer: Wyoming has no laws preventing the carrying of firearms “open-carry” style, meaning the firearm must be visible and not concealed. Wyoming also allows for concealed carry of firearms if you are a Wyoming resident for at least 6 months; or have a concealed carry permit issued in Wyoming; or if you have a concealed carry permit from a state recognized by Wyoming (see link for current list); or if you are a current sworn law enforcement officer in the United States; or if you are a qualifying retired law enforcement officer (certain restrictions apply). However, Wyoming does prohibit the carrying of firearms in the following locations: government buildings; law enforcement facilities; court houses; schools; public meetings; school sanctioned athletic events or fields; bars; and religious institutions unless approved by the person in charge of the facility. You should also check current federal laws pertaining to carrying weapons in National Parks. We recommend you contact the proper National Park authorities to confirm current regulations that might be in place.

Answer: The TOJ has an ordinance that does not allow for camping on city streets, city parking lot, and public parking structures. We encourage visitors to make reservations well in advance of their trip at privately held campgrounds or to camp in designated campground on public lands outside of the town limits (i.e. forest service, national parks, BLM Etc.). The good news is approximately 97% of Teton County is consider public lands that offer an abundance of areas to camp. Popular locations are: Curtis Canyon, Mosquito Creek, Shadow Mountain, Hoback Canyon, Snake River Canyon and Fall Creek Road.
Answer: Jackson, being a ski resort, receives a great deal of snow each year, which challenges our public works crews with keeping the roadways open and safe for motorists to travel on. Jackson also has many streets which are very narrow and the accumulation of snow can cause the streets to become impassable and unsafe for motorists. To ensure that our roadways are free of snow the TOJ has an ordinance that requires all vehicles to be removed from the public streets and parking lots from 3:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. November 1 through April 15th. The TOJ does however allow parking within our parking structure located at Milward/Simpson Streets for up to 48 hours, which makes for an ideal location to park your car overnight. You can also park on private property with permission from the owner of the property.
