Nice campground & facilities, amazing views!

Colter Bay Campground is nice, well-maintained and worth the stay! The location is absolutely perfect! Jackson Lake is nearby, where you can rent boats and kayaks. We kayaked one morning and it was surreal! The Grand Tetons are breathtaking! The lake trail and the Swan Lake and Heron Pond loop make for a nice hike when you first get in. Jackson Lake Lodge is just a short drive away if you want to enjoy a local beer or cocktail while watching the sunset. There are pay showers available, which are always well worth the money spent! We will most definitely be back someday!

Very nice facilities and lots of space!

We truly enjoyed our stay at Canyon Village Campground! First and foremost, they have showers!!! And they're included in your nightly fee. After 5 days of traveling, hiking, and camping, we were very excited to take advantage of the amenities this campground offered.

The campground itself is very large, but the sites are well spaced and provide plenty of privacy nestled among the tall pines. Bathroom facilities were clean and had running water. Bear boxes were provided for each site as well.

We spent several days exploring the area and loved every minute of it! The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone is a must see! Lots of wildlife in the area, which is also an added bonus!

Mountainside sites with a view!

Mammoth Campground is very clean and well kept. The sites are tight but we spent of our time off exploring and never found this to be an issue. Toilets and running water are available but no showers. Firewood is also available for sale. Just a short ways up the mountain is the lodge and village, which provides about anything you could need. We drove into Gardner our first night to pick up a few groceries and some fresh ground bison for dinner. The location is great for exploring the north end. We highly suggest hiking to Osrey Falls if you're up for an adventure that's a bit less crowded. The hot springs are very neat and well worth checking out.

Great base camp for exploring!

The location and the lake views make this campground a perfect spot to stay while exploring the lower region of Yellowstone National Park.

Great views of lake!

Bridge Bay provides great base camp for exploring the south and west ends of the park! We stayed two nights and would definitely come back! Facilities were clean and well maintained. Sites included a fire pit and picnic table.

Clean, well-maintained, and great location w/ lake views!

We enjoyed our stay at Bridge Bay Campground! We arrived early in the morning and we're lucky enough to have been assigned one of the best sites. The campground was clean and very well maintained. The location made it easy for us to explore the south end of the park, including Old Faithful and Morning Glory pool. This was the last campground we visited in during our trip to Yellowstone and we would absolutely stay here again! If you're staying during busy season, make sure to reserve a spot ahead of time. The park was completely full and had we not reserved months before, we would have been out of luck.

Nice campground & good trails

This campground is our "go-to" when we need a last minute getaway from city life. Located outside of Peoria, Jubilee is far enough away from town that you get clear, start night skies.

The campsite has three main loops with RV pads and electric goo ups. We tent camp and majority for the sites also have plenty of room for one or two tents. There is also a fourth tent-only loop, which is all grass and technically "hike-in" but a very short hike depending on which site you pick. All loops have restrooms and a water spigot. There is a shower house near loop B, which is not bad. Could be cleaner, but gets the job done.

There is a decent trail system, which supports hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. The trails are well maintained and most are used on regular basis.

The campground host is very friendly! If you are looking for food or supplies, the town of Kickapoo is not far, and Peoria is only a 15min drive, which offers Hy-Vee and an abundance of restaurants if you prefer not to cook over a campfire. Overall, Jubilee offers a nice camping option near Peoria, IL.

Absolutely amazing!!!! Will be back!

Jenny Lake Campground was our last stop in a multi-week camping/backpacking trip through Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. The peace and quiet Jenny Lake provides was just what we were looking for!

We arrived to the campground between around 8am and were able to get a site. I would suggest getting there at least that early during peak season as the campground is smaller and fills up quickly.

The campsites were spacious and well kept. Everyone was polite and friendly. We even had an elk wander through our campsite after dark!

We only stayed two nights but will definitely be back!
