I was pleasantly surprised at how nice this campground was. The campground had mostly hikers while I was there, which meant that the evenings were quiet and the most active in the mornings. The sites are large and I had a lot of privacy with trees blocking my site from the road through. It was very peaceful.
Another benefit for this campground is that it's close to groceries, laundry, and showers.
Many people over look Colter Bay and opt. Out for the more popular Jenny Lake. Let me tell you a secret..Colter Lake campground is beautiful!! And the beach although rocky is typically never very crowded no matter when you plan your visit. Its only a few yards away from the campground! Just a little advice from a former parky. Happy adventuring!
this place is very well kept for RVs! there are also many of people who come here to ride horses, so it was fun for the kids to see so many horses! the hiking trails were amazing, and the fishing was exceptional as well! This place was such an enjoyable get away!
I camped here during the first week of June this year. The weather was beautiful, the campground was well kept and the hosts were very nice and helpful! The location was great, very easy to get to. The sites are closer together than we would usually prefer, but not as close as some other campgrounds in National Parks we've been too! Plus there are lots of trees & bushes to split up the sites and make you feel like you're not right next to someone. The best part about this campground is the short trail to Jackson Lake. We watched the sunset both nights and it was magical!
Tons of empty campsites of various sizes in this campground, on a weekday in late May. Over 300 sites total, 22 bathrooms, everything on a first-come, first-serve basis (although you can rent the RV sites). Didn't stay overnight, but it seems like a clean, well-run federal campground, so probably getting to sleep by 10 and being up by 6 or 7 and you've got yourself a good night's sleep. Should be able to find a site on most nights, and well worth it due to the open feel, fresh air, lots of mini-trails and roads to explore, huge variety of campsites and sizes, lake and mountain views (sorry they didn't show up well on the video) and of course its proximity to unlimited hikes and sights in the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone national parks.
