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.
