Great Views of the Tetons

I stayed at campsite 9, I think and it was the best view of the Tetons I’ve ever had with a campsite. I’ve never driven any kind of rough road like that before so I was a little nervous coming up with my Subaru with AWD but when I left, I realized it wasn’t bad and any car with AWD can do it. Most of the sites are pretty open and ours was mostly at a decline going into a valley but it wasn’t bad.

Great views + manageable drive

The drive up isn’t bad at all - unmoded vans seen at sites seemed to manage it just fine. Any SUV will do just fine, likely most sedans as well. But the road is rutted so put some thought into your lines. Sites 1-4 easily accessible, don’t bother with 5-6 unless you have a a confident OHV. Take the left at the fork for the forest road for sites 7+. Bear spray + effective food storage heavily recommended by the forest service for this location.

White knuckle drive but worth it

This is the kind of spot I signed up for when I started van life. The views are absolutely incredible. I made it by the skin of my teeth in my 4x4 Sprinter with stock suspension. I do NOT recommend the drive unless you have off road suspension or have a smaller vehicle. I’m definitely going to enjoy this spot while I’m here, but might wait until I do an off road upgrade before coming back.
