Crystal Creek Campground is located along the Gros Ventre River and Crystal Creek, both designated Wild and Scenic Rivers for the spectacular surrounding scenery and excellent fishing opportunities. This is a small and peaceful campground that has several nearby options for hiking, biking and OHV riding.
Just slightly past Crystal Creek Campground and it’s overflow, you will find many forest service roads. But this one in specific, right behind is one of the most primitive and private campsite service I have ever found. Besides the hustle and bustle of ATVs every now and again- there’s nothing but peace, quiet, and the soft hum of a river near by. There is a HUGE grassy area and I swear it’s one of the most beautiful campsites I’ve ever visited. To get to this campground you’d go down “Gros Ventre” road, where there are many campsites almost over a hundred. You just have to have a little adventure & willpower in your mind to find them. And also, don’t be afraid of being completely alone. Because that’s exactly what you’ll find camping here! I loved it.
This place is off the beaten path and close to slide lake. You can camp right on the river. Great area. Double check it is still open. It flooded out last season
Rolled our Sprinter into this area during a hailstorm but the next day, wow! Such a spectacular area!
Lots of sites here, there's a pay campground but plenty of distributed sites as well. A lot of them are tucked into the trees so you might not even know you have a neighbor. Plenty of room for everyone!
There's some really nice hiking here too. Despite the amount of people camping, we were alone on the trail most of the time.
My wife and I stayed for 4 nights in this campground. Its location makes it ideal for Wind River Range exploration. It is a primitive campground so don't expect a lot, but really not a lot is needed. We did see a bear, so at this place just as any in this area you need to "be bear aware." You have access to water that can be filtered. It is a smaller place with only about 6 sites. We took advantage of its location and did a few day hikes in the Grand Tetons which are very close. This is a great option for exploring the Tetons if you can't or don't want to camp in the park.
