Located in the heart of Grand Teton National Park, the Climbers’ Ranch is operated by the American Alpine Club to provide mountaineers and their families with overnight accommodations without the congestion and time limitations of public campgrounds. For many climbers, the Ranch has become a very special place. This web-site is not affiliated with the American Alpine Club, but was created and is maintained by private individuals who are passionate about the Climbers’ Ranch, to provide web-based resources for Teton climbers and hikers.  We hope you will find it useful.  Welcome to our site!

New from the AAC: Philip Swiny, able Ranch manager for a couple of years now, has started devoting himself full-time to his position as Facilities Manager for the American Alpine Club. In addition to GTCR, the Club now has the Hueco Rock Ranch, the New River Gorge Campground, and the Gunks Campground (scheduled for opening in spring 2015).

Management of the Ranch for 2015 will be in the able hands of Gary and Debbie Bunton, our assistant managers during Philip’s term.
