Teton Canyon Campground is located in beautiful Teton Canyon at an elevation of approximately 6,500 feet. Driggs, Idaho is just 11 miles away. Hiking, backpacking and horseback riding are popular activities in this scenic region.
The towering Teton Range and Jedediah Smith Wilderness are adjacent to the canyon. Excellent hiking, backpacking and horseback riding opportunities abound, with trails leaving from the campground. A horse staging area is located at the trailhead parking area.
Teton Creek runs alongside the campground. Fly-fishermen love casting for brook and Yellowstone cutthroat trout.
This newly-renovated campground contains several campsites, each equipped with a picnic table, campfire ring, grill and food storage locker. Two equestrian sites are available for those camping with horses.
Vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection are provided but there is no electricity. Some first come, first served sites may also be available. Firewood is available for purchase from the host. Roads and parking spurs are gravel.
The campground is situated along Teton Creek, with partial views of the nearby Teton Range. A dense forest of pine, spruce and fir covers half of the campground, providing nice shade. The other half of the campground is more open, with aspens and pines dotting the summer wildflower-filled meadows. A variety of wildlife makes its home in the area, including moose and deer.
Popular activities in the area include the Teton Valley Summer Festival over the Fourth of July in Driggs, complete with a hot air balloon festival, parade, rodeo, bike races and antique and craft booths.
Grand Targhee Resort is nearby and hosts outstanding annual music festivals: Targhee Fest is in mid-July; Targhee Bluegrass Festival is in mid-August. The resort also offers lift-served hiking and mountain biking, scenic lift rides, guided horseback riding, a climbing wall and an 18-hole disc golf course. A disc golf tournament is held annually in late July.
Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks are both within a few hours drive.

Teton Canyon was an amazing getaway! Travel up to the camp ground by truck or 4 wheel drive. There was still snow and ice at the end of May! This was a beautiful campground settled in the mountains alongside a stream running with freshly melted snow. The hikes are breathtaking! We even came across an old avalanche. Super relaxing place. This is an off the grid campground. No showers or running water. There were some exceptionally clean bathroom outbuildings though. Bring plenty of firewood. Make sure to use the provided bear proof boxes too! We didn’t come across any bears, but we had a moose that frequented our site every morning! Lots of beautiful wildlife to see and hear. Pet friendly campsite and hiking!
This is a well kept secret. Great campground. Road not terrible to the canyon. Plenty of hiking options from the campground. Pit toilets not the greatest. Plenty of sites able to reserve and walk in first come/serve. Also, national forest area great for dispersed if no sites available.
Great campground! There's several camping spots to choose with different coverages--trees, partial, full sun, etc. North Fork Teton Creek runs just east and is a nice little stream. There's a few trailheads to hike also. The camp hosts were awesome! Very clean pit toilets and water spigots throughout the grounds. Each campsite has bear boxes for your food, grills, and fire ring. You can also buy firewood from the hosts. Alan and his wife really try and make you feel at home. Don't be surprised if it rains often. Enjoy!
A wonderful and small camp ground. The restrooms are a bit rough, but worth it for the hiking. Get the back loop in the woods, away from the Dusty road.
I've stayed here the last two summers. I love this place whenever I'm in the area. Because it's on the other side of Teton Pass, it doesn't get inundated with the tourists that come to the area. Only 19 sites, and you can reserve online. This year's (summer 2017) campground host is a super nice guy! There are also trail heads in two spots along the same road. Great area for wildlife as well!
A nice quiet campground on the western side of the Tetons, not far from The Spud Drive-In Movie Theater in Victor, Idaho. Our site sat in beautiful old growth forest and away from other campers.
