This mid-sized campground is in an open lodgepole pine forest near the Signal Mountain Lodge. Some sites lie just above Jackson Lake, and other sites are a short walk from the lake. Enjoy spectacular views of Mount Moran and the northern Teton Range. The campground accepts both tents and smaller RVs (up to 30 feet total length). The developed area offers a wide variety of services and amenities including lodging, restaurants, showers, laundry and a marina. Maximum stay is 14 nights.
ADA Access: The Signal Mountain Campground has three loops with 81 individual sites. At this time, none are ADA accessible. In the future, the campground will redesign a number of sites to be compliant. One of the restrooms in the campground is wheelchair-accessible. The showers and laundry facilities are fully ADA accessible, and are located near the entrance to the campground. Payphone is available at the campground registration building. Route into the amphitheater is paved but on a gently sloping incline/decline.
Make reservations online before arriving. We visited the campground in August and the campground was full. The campground is family friendly with plenty of activities nearby. Each campsite is surrounded by trees for the most part so there is plenty of room for a hammock and some privacy. The campground is also conveniently located near Jackson Lake. We stayed at three different sites during our visit to the Grand Tetons and this was the best location for car camping in our opinion.
Trailer spots were very roomy, we didn’t have a lake view from camp but just a quick walk down a path and there it was. Lots of spots with electric hook ups. We arrived about 11am and walk up sights were down to about 4, so plan ahead. Great location to explore the Tetons, we would stay here again.
Some of the best views of the Tetons over Jackson Lake are to be had here. The campground stays pretty quiet and has some nice trails to the lake. You are most likely going to see wildlife here. The bathrooms are nice but be prepared to pay. Showers are not free. They wanted $6 for 7 minutes. I’d rather swim in the cold lake. For a non-electric site it was $33 and hookups were an extra $22. We love the Tetons and I understand the amount of people here but this is pricey for the accommodations. We have stayed cheaper in nice RV parks near the beach in resort towns. Our van is now too large to stay at the Jenny Lake campground. Next time we will be likely staying in nearby forest service access areas. We did enjoy the views and trails though.
Despite its size, this campground offers a lot of privacy. Tent pads are set nicely back in the trees. Some pads are artificially leveled for larger tents while others are more suitable for backpacker style tents. The bathroom single taps run warm
This is one of my favorite spots in the Grand Teton area. It's one of the few that actually has a great view. Most spots in the Tetons aren't as accessible to the perfect views of the mountains themselves. Easy access. Great spot!
Signal Mountain campground is my favorite in the park. Some sites have electric and it sits near Jackson Lake so some sites have a nice view. There's restrooms throughout the campground but also nice restrooms and super nice showers/laundry located near the entrance. There is a small store with gas, a restaurant with a killer view, a bar, and a couple gift shops also here. A small lodge provides a nice area to just sit and take in the views. Cabins are also available here.
For campsites there are only a couple with a view of the Tetons but all you have to do is walk a few seconds down the trail and there they are in all their majesty. The amenities are in walking disntance and everywhere you go has a view. The staff are incredibly friendly and know all of the best spots for hiking, fishing and viewing. My favorite part is that they allow your furball friends to stay with you. Not many places in national parks will allow that. There are even a couple of trails you can take them on and staff gave me a little doggy welcome back on arrival. Will be back soon!
Staff was awesome! The views are incredible!
This is one of those campsites that has some great proximity to wonderful views but is far enough into the park that it doesn't fill up immediately. I showed up late on a holiday evening and was still able to snag a spot before it filled up. There are plenty of available resources at this park to include fire pits, tables, electrical hook ups, water hook ups, fire wood, and even showers. The proximity to Jackson Lake is also a wonderful feature of the campground. If you are into night photography this is a great place to get away and find some pretty nice shots.
Enjoy amazing views from all over the campground. Our site was shady but the trees weren’t dense enough to block the views. Our site was very private but some aren’t. They don’t take reservations here and I bet it fills up most of the time. It was pretty quiet even though it was nearly full. It’s only open in June, July, and August since it snows the rest of the year and the bathrooms have running water. We rented kayaks from the campground and explored the little lake…the views were absolutely surreal. Great hiking nearby too. There’s a lodge nearby (if you’d prefer not to camp) with some of the best camp store food options I’ve seen (not just hot dogs and eggs!).
