Quiet. Clean and convenient

This campground was the perfect base camp for our day hikes in the Grand Teton National Park. New asphalt was laid this spring on the roads and all sites. 

No water or electric for most of the sites but there's a dump station and fresh water available to fill up your tanks. Many sites have beautiful views of the Teton range but not all. Some sites are close together and not very private. 

No reservations are accepted so it's first come first served. We arrived at 9:45 am on a Monday morning and we're in our site by 10:30.

We will definitely stay here again on future visits to the park.

Secluded and simple

As the previous reviewer stated, this is entirely primitive camping. No services at all but the grounds are neat and clean. We camped in the RV area. There were a couple of other tents and a popup and aside from the popup running his generator 24hrs a day, it was very quiet and relaxing. There's some stocked ponds to fish in and trails to explore. We rode the Katy Trail which is only 3.5 miles down the hill from here.

Very shady, treed sites.

We loved it here. Tons of trees throughout the campground. The sites are spread out and feel very private. Bathrooms and showers are clean too. No electric or water at the sites but there are potable water spigots available. There's a nice walking trail around the lake as well.

Fantastic location

Located right alongside the Missouri river and Katy Trail, Coopers Landing is a real unique place. The flood of 2019 really took it's toll on the facility but the new owner is working hard to get it all back together. We've stayed here several times a year since 2015 and it's a perennial favorite. They have live music on an outdoor stage, a small general store and a view of the river you can't get anywhere.  Bring your bikes and take a ride on the Katy Trail!

Great Access to the Katy Trail

Camping right alongside the Katy Trail is hard to find. This campground is one of two I know of. Full hookups at most sites and nearly all are tree covered. The sites were very close to each other but unless it's a busy weekend you can spread out easily.
