We stopped in this part of the National Forest on our way to Yellowstone by way of Jackson Hole, WY. The access is off of HWY 191. You turn West onto Cliff Creek Rd/Forest Rd 30530 and follow Cliff Creek to many dispersed coming sites.
This is open range so be aware that there are cattle grazing. Plus, it is of course bear country…so know how to stay safe!
We stayed here one night so that we could get on the road again in the morning. We found a nice secluded site. It was pretty close to the creek (there are closer sites but they were taken already) and you could easily walk there to get into some fly fishing.
Our photos are from driving and getting close to the camping area. When we got there it was pretty close to getting dark (just one photo from the site) and we left really early to get on the road.
We'll stop here again if we're in the area! Can't beat free dispersed camping!
The Ditch Creek valley borders the eastern side of shadow Mountain. This is a wild, rugged and little visited area, with no services, famous for its grizzly bears habitat. Food storage restrictions apply and are enforced. There are no formal camping assets ie. fire pits, picnic tables, toilets site pads available.
There is no camping allowed along or adjacent to the Ditch Creek Road within Grand Teton Nat’l. Park. Upon leave the National Park and travel through a section of private land you will be within US forest service lands. The road from here on is a class III, unpaved, gravel and mud, with little or no Maintenance. Four-wheel-drive is necessary in the event of any moisture.
Turnarounds for larger RVs are difficult to nonexistent. Mosquitoe spray will be necessary in the summer.
There are four or five dispersed campsites, with no Teton views within the first 1/2 mile. Camping opportunities beyond that point are very limited to nonexistent. Safe storage of food is required and of critical importance.￼
This is a large Forest Service Campground on the banks of the Buffalo River. There are flush and pit toilets. One Loop offers electric hookups. Two of the loops are first come first served and all the remaining loops are by advance reservation. Located only 20 miles west of Yellowstone National Park it is amazing at this Campground rarely fils up. There are numerous restaurants and services located nearby. The Buffalo River features great fishing and canoeing.
Buffalo Campground is located close to the Henry Fork River, a world-renowned trout fishing River.
We tried to snag a BLM spot, but didn't make it in time. Many of the campgrounds in the area book up fairly fast in the mornings. However, we heard Gros Ventre normally has spots because of the size of the campground - something like 300 spots. It's a big campground that could feel impersonal, but there are many spots facing the Tetons that feel a little more "personal". It's really well located - super easy distance to Grand Teton National Park and the town of Jackson. What it lacked in "character" was made up in ease of use and central location. Also, perfectly located on the way towards Yellowstone if you are planning to do both parks in one trip.
If you love Sand dunes then you’ll love this campsite. Obviously quite sandy but if you know how to manage it, it’s not an issue. Great place to stay if you are down for some serious adventure. Had a lot of fun sliding down the Sandune‘s on sleds and having a fire in the evening and watching the sunset.
This campground is perfect for large groups who are looking for a lot of outdoor activities nearby. Fun rivers near the campsite as well as amazing hiking and outdoor adventures with the Tetons right in your backyard. Would highly recommend being here on a night with a full moon. It is so fun to watch the moon come up over the Tetons. Great sunrises as well.
Camped here a couple times. Very close to a fun fishing pond and the quiet little town of Victor Idaho which has some amazing hole in the wall food options. Not far from Jackson hole Wyoming either. Worth the stay!￼
My family has gone camping here every summer and even had a family reunion here. Amazing place to stay and the river provides a lot of fun for the kids as well as some great fishing. Great hikes around the area as well. And you can’t go wrong with some great bike rides up the old rail road.
You absolutely need to camp at Jenny Lake once in your life. Yes it's tent only so you will be "roughing it". But the being lakeside at the base of the Grand Teton is nothing short of spectacular. The camp host was friendly and the sites were clean. You are a 30 second to two minute walk from Jenny Lake with fishing, hiking trails, or a boat ride. There is wildlife in the area, moose, bears, elk, deer. If you love the outdoors you will love Jenny Lake Campground
