Quiet gorgeous setting

State run Site. Save money with the Idaho State Parks Pass.

RV and tent camping fishing and boating. I have stayed here numerous times. Cell service spotty but can be achieved. Wildlife can be viewed from inside RV. As stated before can get windy at times.

Very close to other places to visit; Yellowstone NP, Mesa Falls, Harriman State Park, Earthquake Lake, Big Spring, really to many to list.

Piece of heaven!

Incredible tent only campground only a short & easy hike away from Jenny Lake. Since it’s first-come, first-served with only 50 sites, you have to get there early to claim your site - especially in the summer. We got very lucky and had a wonderful site (#34) with a view of the mountains just below the tent pads. The site is large and had several balanced rock stacks around it, adding to its peacefulness. The clearing down below has a wonderful flat boulder where our boys played cards and watched for the elk that would frequent the clearing. Hosts were incredibly friendly and gracious, stopping to chat often.

Great camping in Grand Teton National Park

I camped here as part of my National Park hiking trip to Grand Teton National Park. It was a quiet campground close to hiking at Jenny Lake. The campsites were first come and filled up quickly. Like most national park campgrounds, there were not showers, but flush toilets were available. This was a great place to camp while hiking the national park.

Jenny Lake in the Tetons

No RVs, only tents. Raised gravel beds for tenting and bear lockers on sites. Very close camping quarters, still decent basic amenities with bathrooms. No showers.

Definate best buy

The full service spots are a nice size with a great view of the lake. It does get windy at times. A true gem.

A nicely located RV campground in Grand Teton

We spent 9 nights in Colter Bay RV park in a 30 ft travel trailer. It is a fairly large RV park, but still an easy walk from laundry, the store, the lake, and the visitor center. The sites were fairly level (the whole campground is on a downhill grade to the lake) and nicely spaced. We enjoyed being in the park, though on the north side it was a bit of a drive to Jenny Lake and Jackson. Overall, a pleasant experience and I would recommend.

Enjoyable Yellowstone National Park campground

We stayed in a travel trailer at Grant Village campground for 10 days. This is a dry site (no hook-ups). Because we selected a site next to the comfort station, grey water and sewage storage was not a problem. There was a shower site we had to drive to right down the street; we were given a "pass" for one shower for each adult each day. A little annoying but doable (the water was hot and unlimited). The site was a little tight with our 34 ft rig but it worked without damage to the local foliage. A little on site selection: when you reserve for the campground, you don't select a site. We arrived at 1 pm and selected our site then. The rush for sites was typically around 6-7:30 pm, so I recommend arriving early. Our site was frequented by elk and deer. The lake was a very short walk down the hill. The Village had a grocery, cafe, restaurant, post office, visitor center, and souvenir shop. Would highly recommend.

Can't beat Yellowstone!

This was a great spot to camp, but a little unnerving being in a small tent in bear country. Middle of the summer and it was still down right chilly at night. I'm not sure I've ever been so cold while camping. This campground has restrooms within the loop as well as a large facility for showering and laundry at the entrance to which you likely want to drive. Everything was clean and well maintained. Be sure to practice good bear safety with food. Bear cans were provided for food storage. No food in the tents. No food smelling clothes in the tent. We were right next to the bathroom which was convenient and the campsite was quite large for our two person tent and canopy over the picnic table.

Late season

We wanted to stay overnight in YNP in late October and found out that most of the hotels were already closed and the only campgrounds open were Mammoth, which is open year-round and Lewis Lake, which was open until 11/4. We had no trouble finding a spot in the late afternoon but because it was the only camping available , and it is YNP, it filled up fast! Nice but tiny sites, pretty trees and a separate area for tenters . This campground was very quiet. It was also very clean considering it had hard use all summer. Every site has a little tent pad, a table, and a fire pit. The rangers had turned off the water so there was no fee either! The boat ramp at Lewis Lake was perfect and the lake was glassy so we had excellent canoeing. This review is heavily determined by the time of year, and the excellent weather we enjoyed. But it gives a different twist to camping in Yellowstone.

Too close for comfort

We had planned to stay 2 nights at the Snake River RV Park, but it was very crowded and the sites were too close together. We had reservations, but still ended up in an overflow area, with a huge sink hole which we almost backed into. The site was next to the playground, and kids were out till after 10 pm. We left after one night.

Endless recreation close to town

Fantastic biking, hiking, and wildlife viewing just a few minutes from town amenities. Rough it all week, or head up the road to get a slice or just do laundry. Maybe even at the same time?

This is a great spot, only downside is the highway is fairly close. Chances are though you'll be so busy on the trails you won't even notice. Our campsite looked recently renovated; picnic table, bear box, and fire ring looked brand new. We hiked up towards Oliver peak on a clear day and could see for miles.

Perfect!

This is a decent campsite, a little KOA like with how many sites there are but overall nice. They have great showers along with a nice bathroom. There is amenities around that you can use like a store, gas station, etc.

Nice, Basic Campground in Yellowstone

Yellowstone is always crowded, so we reserved in advance. We enjoyed our stay here – saw lots of elk and bison. Our site was fairly small, but provided what we needed – a place for our car, our tent, and the hammock!

Best campground in Grand Teton!

Great views, access to trails, relatively private and quiet!

On the River, Just Outside of Yellowstone

Just outside of Yellowstone, right on the river, clean vault toilet, bear box, fire pit, picnic table, and FREE.

There are multiple campsites on Grassy Lake Road/Flagg Ranch Road just off of the John D Rockefeller Jr. Parkway connecting the Grand Tetons to Yellowstone. Many could accommodate larger RVs, though we were in a pop-up. The site was beautiful and I saw more moose driving to my campsite than I did driving through Yellowstone.

The river is beautiful and many campsites are right on its banks. My daughter and son Kayaked from Yellowstone’s south entrance to the campsite and had a blast.  I thought the waterfalls at the south end were the most beautiful in the park.  We spent days climbing and hiking around them.

There is no power or water other than the river. Water proved to be a problem for us, though with planning you could fill jugs up while in the park and we showered in the center of Yellowstone at Grant Village.

Several of the camp areas have multiple sites but many further up are single sites you would have all to yourself. Though it’s pseudo-wilderness camping, I would be tempted to pay handsomely for the privilege to be in a quiet campsite next to a beautiful river outside of Yellowstone…but it was FREE.

Convenient and lovely RV Park

Reservations are suggested during the summer season for a shaded and grassy RV site. Playground. Dog area. Cabins too.

Lower and Upper Palisades lakes

This was an amazing overnight camping excursion.

awe inspiring

lots of photo ops, huge park take your time and see it all, plan ahead it will save you much sorrow, the amenities are whatever you prefer, I have never seen a park with so many options

it awesome and cant wait to go back and will take breath away

It best park I have visted so far and words cant describe the park at all and it just asesome

Great site in a great area but no showers

Great site with a great ampitheater and ranger program. Where are the showers? Why cant I pick my own site? Questions I have for Yellowstone

Best campground in yellowstone?

Spacious sites with great bathrooms and dish washing areas. Hot showers are a win! Near all the action too.

Grant Village Campground

Great campground! I had plenty of room for a 3 person and 4 person tent with room to spare. There was a great fire pit and picnic table and the bathrooms were close by as well as a dish washing station and water spickets. The map was easy to follow and the site was easy to find. There are a lot of campsites but I felt we had enough privacy even with campers on on 2 sides of us. There was parking for 2 cars at our site. Also showers were available. After spending the day on the west side of the loop this was a great spot to end out day!

Best campground in the park

Incredible views. Can walk to boat launch area. Take the boat across for some insane hikes and views of waterfalls. Get there super early and you will get a site.

Mountain View

Jenny Lake campground is a first come first served campsite. We showed up early and went and found a campsite without a mountain view. Turns out we came too early since all the mountain view sites were packing up to leave instead of unpacking. It turns out that the mountain view is not actually what you want. The wind howls deep and frequent and tore through many of those sites unless they were properly prepared for wind. We had an opening thru the other side of the tree line and our site was mildly windy, moreso at night. Day time temperatures were very warm, but nights were closer to freezing. We camped here middle of June and the early morning had snow drifting off the storms above the mountains. We were unprepared for the temperatures dropping that low. There are no showers at this campground. Be prepared to run across deer in there, I was not prepared on my groggy way back from the bathroom at 7am and was very shocked. I would have been in trouble had it been a scarier animal. The trail around Jenny Lake was the most grounding experience I've ever experienced. I dream of the chance of getting back her to repeat. The mountains are so beautiful, you have a hard time believing it's not a painting. The campground staff was very helpful and did frequent rounds to ensure everyone was complying to campsite rules. The sites are not too close, unless you want mountain view. There is a paved path that can lead you to the visitor's center. Be sure to do the ENTIRE path of Jenny Lake, but be prepared for an all day adventure!

Very large campground

This was the second Yellowstone campground we stayed at. It was very large. The workers at the registration building were friendly and helpful. This campground is on Yellowstone lake. There were clean restrooms that were heated. Also an area within the restroom building to wash dishes. Also laundry facilities and showers were available in another building a short distance from the campground. A gas station, visitor center, restaurant, and store within a short drive. Unfortunately it started to rain in the evening and rained all night long, which dampened things a bit. Fires were allowed. Our site was very nice and woodsy.

Great campsite!!

We stayed in the Grant Village campground August 31st & Sept. 1st and it was very nice, our site had trees for us to hang our hammock and had a small path at the back that got visited by a calf (young moose), 3 female elk, and a black tailed deer😊. We were in the J loop, site 346. There are bathrooms with a sink and mirror and a place in the same building to clean your dishes. The fire pits do have a grate you can flip over the fire and cook on! There is a general store with a little bit of groceries and there are showers in a separate part of the grounds 😊. Would absolutely stay there again!!!

Amazing inexpensive camping bear YNP!

Beautiful! On the Madison river! Great space, quiet & fantastic location! West Yellowstone is only 5 minutes away. We traveled into YNP a few days & also up to Big Sky MT! We stayed here an entire week. We moved to an electric site our last night to charge up. We are in a 28’ camper.

BEST VIEW OF THE TETONS

A little bumpy on the ride up, but 110% worth it! We stayed at several different campsites over a few days and it seemed like the lower campsites had better views of the Tetons, without trees in front. I'd recommend trying to get a site early and setting up tent before exploring for the day. It was a little smokey while we were there, so the pictures don't even do it justice.

Huge RV spots, large store, kept up nicely

Very close to Yellowstone park. The RV spot was huge (patio space, plus grassy area with trees which was great for the dogs!) although we paid for the premium spot. Dog park was nice for the pups. No complaints at all.

Helpful and friendly staff, great BBQ, growing resort

The staff here was very friendly and helpful. We had our two dogs, and the staff helped guide us to several awesome hikes that were dog friendly that were great. Additionally, the staff were very helpful with offering tours to our schedule when we wanted them (kayaking). The park is located in Victor, ID on the other side of Teton Pass from Grand Teton National Park (the resort is about a half a mile from the center of town) Victor is a charming small town with several breweries and a locally sourced grocery market. We really enjoyed the town, especially compares to West Yellowstone, which is where we went next.
