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.
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.
We spent 9 nights in Colter Bay RV park in a 30 ft travel trailer. It is a fairly large RV park, but still an easy walk from laundry, the store, the lake, and the visitor center. The sites were fairly level (the whole campground is on a downhill grade to the lake) and nicely spaced. We enjoyed being in the park, though on the north side it was a bit of a drive to Jenny Lake and Jackson. Overall, a pleasant experience and I would recommend.
We stayed in a travel trailer at Grant Village campground for 10 days. This is a dry site (no hook-ups). Because we selected a site next to the comfort station, grey water and sewage storage was not a problem. There was a shower site we had to drive to right down the street; we were given a "pass" for one shower for each adult each day. A little annoying but doable (the water was hot and unlimited). The site was a little tight with our 34 ft rig but it worked without damage to the local foliage. A little on site selection: when you reserve for the campground, you don't select a site. We arrived at 1 pm and selected our site then. The rush for sites was typically around 6-7:30 pm, so I recommend arriving early. Our site was frequented by elk and deer. The lake was a very short walk down the hill. The Village had a grocery, cafe, restaurant, post office, visitor center, and souvenir shop. Would highly recommend.
This was a great spot to camp, but a little unnerving being in a small tent in bear country. Middle of the summer and it was still down right chilly at night. I'm not sure I've ever been so cold while camping. This campground has restrooms within the loop as well as a large facility for showering and laundry at the entrance to which you likely want to drive. Everything was clean and well maintained. Be sure to practice good bear safety with food. Bear cans were provided for food storage. No food in the tents. No food smelling clothes in the tent. We were right next to the bathroom which was convenient and the campsite was quite large for our two person tent and canopy over the picnic table.
We wanted to stay overnight in YNP in late October and found out that most of the hotels were already closed and the only campgrounds open were Mammoth, which is open year-round and Lewis Lake, which was open until 11/4. We had no trouble finding a spot in the late afternoon but because it was the only camping available , and it is YNP, it filled up fast! Nice but tiny sites, pretty trees and a separate area for tenters . This campground was very quiet. It was also very clean considering it had hard use all summer. Every site has a little tent pad, a table, and a fire pit. The rangers had turned off the water so there was no fee either! The boat ramp at Lewis Lake was perfect and the lake was glassy so we had excellent canoeing. This review is heavily determined by the time of year, and the excellent weather we enjoyed. But it gives a different twist to camping in Yellowstone.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Just outside of Yellowstone, right on the river, clean vault toilet, bear box, fire pit, picnic table, and FREE.
There are multiple campsites on Grassy Lake Road/Flagg Ranch Road just off of the John D Rockefeller Jr. Parkway connecting the Grand Tetons to Yellowstone. Many could accommodate larger RVs, though we were in a pop-up. The site was beautiful and I saw more moose driving to my campsite than I did driving through Yellowstone.
The river is beautiful and many campsites are right on its banks. My daughter and son Kayaked from Yellowstone’s south entrance to the campsite and had a blast. I thought the waterfalls at the south end were the most beautiful in the park. We spent days climbing and hiking around them.
There is no power or water other than the river. Water proved to be a problem for us, though with planning you could fill jugs up while in the park and we showered in the center of Yellowstone at Grant Village.
Several of the camp areas have multiple sites but many further up are single sites you would have all to yourself. Though it’s pseudo-wilderness camping, I would be tempted to pay handsomely for the privilege to be in a quiet campsite next to a beautiful river outside of Yellowstone…but it was FREE.
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.
It best park I have visted so far and words cant describe the park at all and it just asesome
Great campground! I had plenty of room for a 3 person and 4 person tent with room to spare. There was a great fire pit and picnic table and the bathrooms were close by as well as a dish washing station and water spickets. The map was easy to follow and the site was easy to find. There are a lot of campsites but I felt we had enough privacy even with campers on on 2 sides of us. There was parking for 2 cars at our site. Also showers were available. After spending the day on the west side of the loop this was a great spot to end out day!
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!
This was the second Yellowstone campground we stayed at. It was very large. The workers at the registration building were friendly and helpful. This campground is on Yellowstone lake. There were clean restrooms that were heated. Also an area within the restroom building to wash dishes. Also laundry facilities and showers were available in another building a short distance from the campground. A gas station, visitor center, restaurant, and store within a short drive. Unfortunately it started to rain in the evening and rained all night long, which dampened things a bit. Fires were allowed. Our site was very nice and woodsy.
We stayed in the Grant Village campground August 31st & Sept. 1st and it was very nice, our site had trees for us to hang our hammock and had a small path at the back that got visited by a calf (young moose), 3 female elk, and a black tailed deer😊. We were in the J loop, site 346. There are bathrooms with a sink and mirror and a place in the same building to clean your dishes. The fire pits do have a grate you can flip over the fire and cook on! There is a general store with a little bit of groceries and there are showers in a separate part of the grounds 😊. Would absolutely stay there again!!!
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.
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.
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.
