Facilities at the UW-NPS Research Station

The Station's facilities are a great place for classes, conferences and researchers interested in the Greater Yellowstone Area.  The Historic Structure's are great to base from while in the Greater Yellowstone with Jackson Lake at it's feet and the Teton's as your neighbor.  The Station has simple lab facilities, Internet service, and equipment to help with research in the area.  For more information please check our pamphlet.

For reservations we need a housing form.  Note our Station is for education and research, unfortunately we can't accommodate recreational visits. We will try to accommodate your requests for specific housing but cannot guarantee housing as we fill up quickly.  We begin allocating housing in April but take requests starting in January.



Berol Lodge

Built in 1937 as a second home for Alfred and Madeliene Berol the Lodge is the crown jewel of the station and home to our popular Harlow Summer Seminar Series. It is also a great place for conferences with three meeting areas, a kitchen and Internet service. The logs for this building came from Arizona Lake, rocks are from the Gros Ventre and some of the walkway stones were from Beaver Dick's homestead (removed after the cabin was abandoned).

A great log home built in 1927 by William Louis Johnson. The original structure was to be one floor but Mae's (William's wife) issues with the local bears precipitated a second floor. Logs for this structure were cut at Moran Bay and floated across Jackson Lake to the site. The Structure sleeps 18 with four bedrooms, two kitchens, three baths and a fabulous screened in porch. It is the preferred structure for classes.
