This campground is in an open lodgepole pine forest near the Signal Mountain Lodge. Some sites lie just above Jackson Lake, and other sites are a short walk from the lake. Enjoy spectacular views of Mount Moran and the northern Teton Range. The campground accepts both tents and smaller RVs (up to 30 feet total length). The developed area offers a wide variety of services and amenities including lodging, restaurants, showers, laundry, and marina. Maximum stay is 14 nights.
ADA Access: The Signal Mountain Campground has three loops with 81 individual sites. At this time, none are ADA accessible. In the future, the campground will redesign a number of sites to be compliant. One of the restrooms in the campground is wheelchair-accessible. The showers and laundry facilities are fully ADA accessible, and are located near the entrance to the campground. Payphone is available at the campground registration building. Route into the amphitheater is paved but on a gently sloping incline/decline.
First come first served. Get there around 11am to grab a site with a view, there’s only a handful. If those are full get a site near the entrance so you’re close to bathhouses, laundry, store, restaurant. Beach is nice with amazing views! Pay showers are pricy compared to what I’ve seen around the country. Laundry was affordable. Roads and sites are TIGHT! No RV’s over 30 feet allowed! Overall, an amazing campground with trails within a 10 minute drive.
This campground is great but it’s very busy. Some sites are amazing and others are not very private and pretty close together. It really comes down to luck and the early morning rush to get a site can be a bit stressful. If you manage to get a good site you won’t want to leave.
If you’re not a fan of pristine panoramic Mountain View’s mirrored off of the surface of a beautifully clear watered lake that rests beneath pleasant nature flavored pine air then this is not the place for you. This is a mind altering pleasant place experience.
Facilities immaculate, rangers and personnel are courteous and attentive, the general store wants for nothing, the neighboring hikes are plentiful and if taken in the early hours, appropriately sparse.
This is a really nice campground. The soft ground made tent camping comfortable. Clean bathrooms that were lit through the night. Some sites close to Jackson Lake beach access which provide stunning views. Arrived at 6:15am on a Sunday and felt so lucky to find an open spot.
We called 3 nights and enjoyed the experience. Mother nature at its best. The rates were reasonable. Enjoyed cooking out.
Make reservations online before arriving. We visited the campground in August and the campground was full. The campground is family friendly with plenty of activities nearby. Each campsite is surrounded by trees for the most part so there is plenty of room for a hammock and some privacy. The campground is also conveniently located near Jackson Lake. We stayed at three different sites during our visit to the Grand Tetons and this was the best location for car camping in our opinion.
Trailer spots were very roomy, we didn’t have a lake view from camp but just a quick walk down a path and there it was. Lots of spots with electric hook ups. We arrived about 11am and walk up sights were down to about 4, so plan ahead. Great location to explore the Tetons, we would stay here again.
Some of the best views of the Tetons over Jackson Lake are to be had here. The campground stays pretty quiet and has some nice trails to the lake. You are most likely going to see wildlife here. The bathrooms are nice but be prepared to pay. Showers are not free. They wanted $6 for 7 minutes. I’d rather swim in the cold lake. For a non-electric site it was $33 and hookups were an extra $22. We love the Tetons and I understand the amount of people here but this is pricey for the accommodations. We have stayed cheaper in nice RV parks near the beach in resort towns. Our van is now too large to stay at the Jenny Lake campground. Next time we will be likely staying in nearby forest service access areas. We did enjoy the views and trails though.
Despite its size, this campground offers a lot of privacy. Tent pads are set nicely back in the trees. Some pads are artificially leveled for larger tents while others are more suitable for backpacker style tents. The bathroom single taps run warm
This is one of my favorite spots in the Grand Teton area. It's one of the few that actually has a great view. Most spots in the Tetons aren't as accessible to the perfect views of the mountains themselves. Easy access. Great spot!
