Of the eight National Parks I visited on my month long roadtrip, Grand Teton was my favorite. Gros Ventre is a great location to explore the park, particularly the southern half (Moose and Jackson, WY).
There is next to no privacy - the campground is in the middle of a few cottonwood trees and lots of scrub brush. Bathrooms were clean, staff was incredibly friendly.
Mormon Row is less than five minutes away by car if you want a great place to watch the sunrise! Craft beer could be found in Moose where there's a roof top bar.
Went for a night to get out of the city and found a newly opened campground that had a lot of charm and amenities. The camp hosts are extremely friendly and have lots of tips for the area.
We've now stayed here 3 times, and each time was amazing! The best sunsets and sunrises. It's a huge campground! Even when it's full you still have plenty of space! The rocks are huge - fun and easy to climb on! We've seen coyotes near by, an owl in the rocks near one of the campsites, and we've heard bobcats in the middle of the night (they don't sound anything like you think they would, look it up!). This is such a great place. We love the entire park!
This place is as advertised, and that's a good thing. All of these 28 sites are first come, first serve and since it is so conveniently located off I-80 and only 20 miles west of I-25, it's a wonderful spot to camp that's not hard to get to. There is a welcome area right off the highway with information on the surrounding hiking and bouldering opportunities, with maps included. I was rained and hailed on the night I stayed and into the next morning, so I wasn't able to take advantage of the hiking options, but the scenery of this place is very picture worthy and campsites are dispersed well enough so even when this campground is near capacity, you'd still feel like you've got privacy.
There are bathrooms (outhouses) with TP and places for drinking water. Also dumpsters that can lock, nice for keeping wildlife at bay. Every site has your fire pit and picnic table, with the added feature of a BBQ grill. Bring cash so you can pay the site fees, which start at $10/night.
As a Ranger for The Dyrt, I get products from time to time - today I am testing new(er) flavors from Mountain House, Breakfast Skillet and Biscuits and Gravy. I've eaten a lot of Mountain House flavors over the years, and one thing remains constant - they make great freeze dried meals. The other constant is I'm always having them when I'm either backpacking, it's cold and raining, I'm starving, or all of those things at the same time because they're quick and easy to make and there's virtually no clean up. Campers and trippers know all food tastes better as you become more miserable, so while I love the food, I should really try one of these when it's nice and sunny outside.
Breakfast Skillet: 5 out of 5. Good ratio of egg, hash, and veggies. They even get you started with some salt and pepper spice taste to go with the chewy eggs and hash. Only thing missing was the taste of burnt skillet, which is probably a good thing. This meal was gone in no time.
Biscuits and Gravy: 4 out of 5. It's not the most appealing looking from the flavor Rolodex, but go with your gut and chow down. It's a little on the salty side, but it still fills you up. I do recommend taking the directions' advice and after a few minutes open up the package to stir around the contents. I thought shaking it in the bag would do, but some of the biscuit pieces are large and won't cook properly without the actual stirring from a fork/spoon.
Pro Tip: The bags seal really well, and when I'm cold I like to place them in my jacket or in my hands to help give me some warmth while it cooks.
