Stayed here to get away from crowds at the national parks. We had to drive pretty far back because we didn’t get there very early, but the spot we found was deserted, and we had a beautiful view of the Tetons with the sun setting over them while eating dinner. Campsites are huge and therefore you can get unexpected new campers sharing the site late at night. But it was very quiet and beautiful. We didn’t see any bears at the site, but there were signs and we saw 5 grizzlies the next morning in Grand Teton.
This is a very large dispersed camping area (~4-5 miles worth) with intermittently spaced sites. It does fill up very early so I would recommend trying to get a spot before 3pm. However, the further back you go, the better the views (but the bumpier the road) and gives you closer proximity to the creek. There are amazing views of the Tetons and access to the park as well as a great Verizon signal and moderate ATT. The stars on a moonless night are perfect to see - we were able to see the milky way, space station and a few satellites.
We stayed at site 10 on Forest Service road 30290. No markings on the road. Good gravel road until you hit National Forest. There is a very large gravel parking lot area for big rigs. We have a 24’ toyhauler. We stayed right and followed the road down until a T, then went left. And came across site 10. It already had a camper in it and had plenty of space. The current occupants were not keen on sharing but took our name and number if they were going to leave. We shortly got a text saying we could stay. They ended up leaving that day while we were out. Everyday since then other people have squished into our site. Every time we leave, we come back to more people. There is space but several people seam to share one spot. I guess it’s ok, but it is kinda weird people don’t even ask. It’s hard because we boondock for space and because we have a dog. But everyone is friendly so we decided may as well make friends. Fingers crossed nobody blocks us in.
We drove around for 3.5 hours looking for a campsite for a last minute trip to Grand Teton over Labor Day. This was the ONLY place we could find that had any camping spots left, and even then we had to drive pretty far back into the woods to get there. "Spread" creek dispersed campground is a very accurate name! Many of the camping spots were enormous- big enough for several campers or tents- and there was a LOT of driving space between each site, so you really feel secluded.
The location the previous reviewer left takes you to the Post Office parking lot.
We were lucky to find an open spot. There are 14 campsites dispersed down a four mile long gravel road. Part of the National Forest. Great views of the Tetons from several sites. We made it to the end of the road in our 38’ motorhome with tow vehicle attached. Just drive slow. Kids had a blast playing along Spread Creek. Tons of mosquitoes, so bring lots of bug spray. Had AT&T cell service and Verizon. Probably my favorite spot to camp on our recent trip, other than those darn mosquitoes.
