Beautiful spot with beautiful views

Wonderful spot located in the heart of the Tetons. The nearby creek is beautiful, and it's truly a nice area to just get away from it all. Will definitely return!

Quite and comfortable. Nice showers and right on the snake river

Very good value compared to others in the area.

Beautiful scenery and hiking

Dry camping with loads of dispersed sites. Hiking, fishing, ATV/Dirtbiking.

Beautiful and Clean

We had to wait until 5pm to get an open ADA site because the rest were full, but boy was it WORTH IT. This campground was beautiful and lush. No showers only toilets but our site was paved (ADA) and we even had a group of black bears come through! Short distance to Jenny and String lake. Lots of close hiking. Bathrooms were clean with plugs to charge phones and whatnot. Only stayed one night but had a great experience!

Difficult roads but worth it

This is was the best campsite I have ever stayed at. It was on top a little hill that was quite the feat to get into (had to back the car down a skinny road to the top) BY FAR the best views of the Tetons and national elk refuge. We saw wolves, elk, goats, whistle pigs, and even a pheasant.

Amazing wildlife and clean sites

Saw three moose inside this campground. Only stayed for a night but it sure was beautiful! Sites and facilities were clean, office staff was friendly and there is an amazing view of the Tetons!

Diamond Creek Guard Station

We cheated. It was too cold to sleep outdoors the month we arrived at the Diamond Creek Campground… give us a break, we're from Arizona!

The guard station can be rented cheaply through Recreation.gov and it was worth every penny! With a wood-burning stove, we stayed nice and toasty. There were plenty of cots to move close to the wood-burning stove for a cozy night sleep.

First and foremost, very family friendly.

The easy accessible camp sites, the beautiful views, the blueberry skies to the emerald country side. There is something for everyone.

Amazing hiking

This is large camp. Great for hiking nearby can be skied or hiked to in winter and driven to in summer. Hiking table rock nearby is an awesome hike.

Nice but busy

Kelly island is a beautiful campground on the snake river. Great hiking and fishing nearby. In summer time very busy but spread out.

Piece of heaven!

Incredible tent only campground only a short & easy hike away from Jenny Lake. Since it’s first-come, first-served with only 50 sites, you have to get there early to claim your site - especially in the summer. We got very lucky and had a wonderful site (#34) with a view of the mountains just below the tent pads. The site is large and had several balanced rock stacks around it, adding to its peacefulness. The clearing down below has a wonderful flat boulder where our boys played cards and watched for the elk that would frequent the clearing. Hosts were incredibly friendly and gracious, stopping to chat often.

Great camping in Grand Teton National Park

I camped here as part of my National Park hiking trip to Grand Teton National Park. It was a quiet campground close to hiking at Jenny Lake. The campsites were first come and filled up quickly. Like most national park campgrounds, there were not showers, but flush toilets were available. This was a great place to camp while hiking the national park.

Jenny Lake in the Tetons

No RVs, only tents. Raised gravel beds for tenting and bear lockers on sites. Very close camping quarters, still decent basic amenities with bathrooms. No showers.

WIDE OPEN SPACES

318 sites. 36 electric sites. wide open spaces between you and your neighbors. Moose in the campground almost daily. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Open May to October.

Best trip ever

I went out to Wyoming a couple of summers ago, and honestly it was one of the most amazing trips I have ever been on. I stayed with some friends from college in Gros Ventre campground. There were a whole bunch of us spread out over 3 sites, but the staff was very accommodating and helped us find three sites that were all connected.

The sites themselves are great. Pretty secluded from the other campers, which I love. The campground has clean drinking water and is located next to a river if you need to wash off. No showers though, so it really feels like you're roughing it.

The campground is located only about 20 minutes from the town of Jackson Hole. The place made me want to never leave Wyoming. The town has some cute coffee shops, a bouldering wall downtown, and awesome stores for outdoor enthusiasts.

The camp is also located only about 20 minutes from Grand Teton National Park. If you've never been to Wyoming, you can't imagine how beautiful this place is in the summer. Wildflowers everywhere, and once you get far enough into the park it feels like you're somewhere no other people have ever been. The stars are crazy bright and the mountains are unreal. Definitely one of my favorite national parks. I would highly recommend taking a backpacking trip through the Tetons or doing some rock climbing.

One of my all time favorite campgrounds and favorite places.

Remoe and relaxing

The best thing about this campground is not even the campground - the scenery, the creek, the hot springs! Of course the campground itself is wonderful, with nice spacious sites and plenty of accessible vault toilets. Being October, the hook-ups were off, although that should be expected late season in Wyoming.

The paid pool stays open until the end of October, we made sure to use it. The hot pools in the creek are also an option.

Be aware the road does close to cars in winter.

Endless recreation close to town

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.

Beautiful Campground to feel at one with Nature

Upon arrival at Gros Ventre Campground we were greeted by two very friendly and informative hosts. After picking our campsite, we decided to switch- which was no problem at all.

The views, and surrounding area were absolutely breathtaking. A female moose walked right behind our site, and the bison were in herds on the campground the morning we left.

Would highly reccomend for anyone camping in the Teton Area.

Favorite site

Went on a week long at trip to Yellowstone and the tetons and this was my favorite site During our trip. Lots of space between campsites, decent bathrooms along with amazing views make for a great campsite. There are a few group sites, and firewood for sale along with safe food storage and garbages.

Best campground in Grand Teton!

Great views, access to trails, relatively private and quiet!

Off the beaten path

Gros Ventre has hundreds of campsites inside Grand Teton National Park and is not usually full. Only one loop has electric hookups and these sites are narrow and limited. Other sites are more suitable for tents or campers or vans. There are a number of other sites OK for RVs including trailers but generators are limited.

Moose may be seen in the early season. Its an easy drive into Kackson or the rest of GTNP.fair prices too, and a few group sites available by reservat. All the rest of the sites are first come, first served.

Lower and Upper Palisades lakes

This was an amazing overnight camping excursion.

Hiking Big Elk.

Can be very busy in summer months.

Best campground in the park

Incredible views. Can walk to boat launch area. Take the boat across for some insane hikes and views of waterfalls. Get there super early and you will get a site.

Mountain View

Jenny Lake campground is a first come first served campsite. We showed up early and went and found a campsite without a mountain view. Turns out we came too early since all the mountain view sites were packing up to leave instead of unpacking. It turns out that the mountain view is not actually what you want. The wind howls deep and frequent and tore through many of those sites unless they were properly prepared for wind. We had an opening thru the other side of the tree line and our site was mildly windy, moreso at night. Day time temperatures were very warm, but nights were closer to freezing. We camped here middle of June and the early morning had snow drifting off the storms above the mountains. We were unprepared for the temperatures dropping that low. There are no showers at this campground. Be prepared to run across deer in there, I was not prepared on my groggy way back from the bathroom at 7am and was very shocked. I would have been in trouble had it been a scarier animal. The trail around Jenny Lake was the most grounding experience I've ever experienced. I dream of the chance of getting back her to repeat. The mountains are so beautiful, you have a hard time believing it's not a painting. The campground staff was very helpful and did frequent rounds to ensure everyone was complying to campsite rules. The sites are not too close, unless you want mountain view. There is a paved path that can lead you to the visitor's center. Be sure to do the ENTIRE path of Jenny Lake, but be prepared for an all day adventure!

Pitched a Tent

Selected a great site w/o advanced registration - right on the Snake River. The staff was super nice, everything seemed adequate and clean. The upper area w/RVs and Cabins looked a little crowded, but the tent sites were tucked away. Really had a nice stay - our neighbors had SUPER whiny babies, but hey man… that's KOA sometimes. The river drowned out any other noises.

BEST VIEW OF THE TETONS

A little bumpy on the ride up, but 110% worth it! We stayed at several different campsites over a few days and it seemed like the lower campsites had better views of the Tetons, without trees in front. I'd recommend trying to get a site early and setting up tent before exploring for the day. It was a little smokey while we were there, so the pictures don't even do it justice.

Helpful and friendly staff, great BBQ, growing resort

The staff here was very friendly and helpful. We had our two dogs, and the staff helped guide us to several awesome hikes that were dog friendly that were great. Additionally, the staff were very helpful with offering tours to our schedule when we wanted them (kayaking). The park is located in Victor, ID on the other side of Teton Pass from Grand Teton National Park (the resort is about a half a mile from the center of town) Victor is a charming small town with several breweries and a locally sourced grocery market. We really enjoyed the town, especially compares to West Yellowstone, which is where we went next.

Coffee with a View

We enjoyed 2 nights at this campground. These are first come sites and we arrived on a Tuesday in mid August, no problem. Clean flush toilets. Fire ring had a lot of dried grass around it and we were hesitant to build a fire. Wonderful scenic drives!!

Beautiful sights and great location

This campground was in a gorgeous location with access to the river as well as lots of wildlife-we saw a deer and a moose in the three days we stayed! With built in bear boxes as well as campfire grate for each site and parking for typically two cars as well no generator loops, tent, trailer, and RV camping are available. The tricky part is that a few of the sites don’t have easy access to the bathrooms (no showers but bath/food cleanup dump sink) but overall, one of the most beautiful places we’ve stayed. Can get a little loud during the nights should you stay over a holiday weekend like we did, and the campground was full but I wouldn’t expect that normally.
