The campground contains single-family sites with picnic tables, campfire rings and food storage lockers. Accessible vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection are provided. Roads and parking spurs are gravel.
The campground is situated near Trail Creek among a forest of Douglas fir and lodgepole pine. A variety of wildlife makes its home in the area, including moose and deer. Summer wildflowers are abundant.

We stopped here for the night. Easy access to Hwy but thats also the downfall because you can hear it. 10+ new sites & toilets. Bear proof boxes for tenters. Nice fire rings. $12 a night, $6 with senior pass. Pretty level sites.
They just added 10+ new sites and new toilets and we think we were the first to stay in this one. There were not very many people there on a Tuesday night. We have a senior pass so paid $6.00. I would have given it 5 stars but the only downfall was the highway was close enough we heard the traffic a lot but was also a plus because it was easy access.
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.
Has a small stream and lots of shaded areas
Quite little campground close to Jackson hole and several trails on the pass. You can reserve spots here or check out the dispersed camping just past the campground entrance. If you veer right after pulling off the hwy thereare several nice dispersed spots along a small creek. Dogs are welcome here!
I really enjoy using this campground as a base for all kinds of activities. There are beautiful wildflower hikes nearby (bring bear spray for hiking), numerous mountain biking opportunities, and easy and scenic drives on both sides of Teton Pass. The campground is close enough to Jackson, WY for a nice dinner out, and it's a good place to stay if attending a Targhee ski area music festival. The camp sites provide nice shade without being too wooded.
I have to admit that I live within 5 miles of the Mike Harris Campground but for some reason i love it. It is an easy access campground for people who are touring around Yellowstone. What most don't know is that it offers access to some of the best Mtn Bike Trails in our area. Rush hour, Nemo, and Mail Cabin are all great rides. Rush Hour and Nemo are the best kids rides in the area besides Grand Targhee.
