Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway, Flagg Ranch is only two miles south of Yellowstone and five miles north of Grand Teton. Wilderness surrounds the Headwaters development.

One fully accessible shower is available. Routes to the amphitheater are well-compacted gravel and on a gently sloping incline/decline. The campground loop roads are well-compacted gravel and mostly level, with gently sloping incline/decline.
Visited here in June of 2019. Great campground close to the lodge, convenience store, gas station, and laundry. Cell phone service and even radio station reception are almost nonexistent throughout the park, recommend stopping by a lodge to get the daily weather report and news. We were hit by very sudden blizzard in the beginning of June. The day before was sunny and 85° F, we had servers thunderstorms that night with 10” of snow the next morning! The park closed the gates so we couldn’t leave that morning. Both our cell phones didn’t work. Check the lodges for news and weather.
The restaurant at the lodge was very good. The lodge has one public phone for long distance calls. The satellite WiFi is slow because of all the people trying to use it. If you really need it, try late at night.
Highly recommend the horseback ride/tour through the park at this lodge. It was amazing. The lodge front desk is where you sign up for the horseback tour.
The fireplace at the lodge has board games and lots of kids gather to play. An awesome place!
Clean place to stay on the Snake River. Excellent location if planning to do both parks! We hiked down to the river in the evenings and watched the sunset. Gas was cheaper at the gas station there since it is technically not in the national parks. 🤫
Easy pull through sites, 415. Level Sewer connection had an odd configuration. We had to dig a bit of dirt out in order to make a connection. Nice, clean bathrooms. Showers had no seats and only one hook for clothes, towels and toiletry bag. Very limited Wi-fi that had to be accessed at the lodge reception area. No cell phone service. A courtesy phone is available at the lodge reception desk. Clean laundry facility. 2.25 to wash, 1.75 to dry 40 minutes. Convenience store. Gift shop with WY fishing license. Did not use other amenities. We took a nice ride out Grassy Lake Road from the ranch. The area near the ranch was burned in the 2016 wildfires so you will see lots of burned trees. On the plus side, the wildfires provide nutrients for the wildflowers to thrive. This campground is also fairly convenient to many of the sites to see in the Grand Tetons.
We arrived after a long day of traveling and it was wet and cold outside, so we were very happy to have a cabin waiting for us. We reserved it in May for a July trip. The staff were disorganized during check-in and gave us the keys to someone else’s cabin. They more than made it up to us though by preparing a new cabin while we ate dinner at the lodge, and then there was welcome basket with treats and games waiting for us in our cabin. Beautiful views in this area and just minutes from the park’s south entrance! It’s nice having the lodge right there, so even if you’re tent or RV camping, you can get a warm hearty meal ready when you want.
HeadWaters Rv campground is located in the perfect place right between Yellowstone and The Tetons. Perfect for exploring both Parks. The cell service is pretty spotty, but it’s great to just put down your phone and enjoy your surroundings. It is only 5 minutes walk from the campground to Snake River access. Fires are allowed at this campground. There are Rv, tent, and cabins to stay at. The cabins in the camp area are small but have full sized bunk beds and a desk and dresser. These cabins do not have water or electricity, but there are other cabins with power up the road. The tent and Rv spots are on gravel with lots of shade, a picnic table, and fire ring. Rv sites are Electric and water. There are so many activities to do. Along with the activities they have every day there is horse riding, guided fly fishing, hiking trails for everyone, bus tours, jr. rancher classes and so much more Also on site at the campground is a dish washing area next to the clean bathrooms and showers. There is a propane fill, fresh water fill, restaurant, gift shop, ATM machine, gas station, and bear boxes. I would definitely recommend this campground for any duration of trip.
It’s a clean camp site, well maintained, great Facilities! You’re in The GRAND Tetons! Really can’t complain! … if I came back I’d love to stay closer to Colter Bay or Jenny Lake just for a better view.
There is a store with gas pumps and a parking lot that we dropped our trailer before check in time to go explore the area. Staff and grounds were great. It is away from everything so you can see lots of stars at night
This campground was good for the location between Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons but the bathrooms were generally dirty with 3 of the stalls being out of toilet paper for several days. The layout of the campground is confusing when you first get there. The store is nice though and the staff were helpful.
Full amenities laundry and the restaurant and lodge nearby. Spaces are a little close together but easy to pull through.
We made reservations for a trailer 6 months in advance since we read campgrounds full early and we brought our dogs so needed hookups in case of hot weather. This campground is PERFECT if you want to see both the Grand Tetons AND Yellowstone. It’s literally 3 minutes from the south entrance to Yellowstone. Very large pull through spaces. Firepits, picnic tables, and bear lockers at every spot. Laundry available. Clean bathrooms and free showers. Store, gas station, and restaurant/bar. Super quiet and empty during the day cause everyone is out exploring. Fills up at 6pm but never loud.
