Close but far from the Tetons

I really liked this campground. We were there during the week so it was pretty empty. Great view of the Tetons. It was a nice base camp to explore the Tetons and Jackson Hole. They had ice and firewood. You could rent a generator if needed. Big camp ground with several loops, each offering different options: tents only, RVs/ no generators, RVs with generators, etc. We saw moose just hanging around camp. Out on the road near Mormon row we saw a red tailed hawk fighting a bald eagle. Crazy!

Camp and fish

Nice campground. Vault toilets, water, picnic tables, fire rings. Great if you want to camp and then fish the lake. We just angled from the shore. We should have brought a canoe or kayak. Some “civilization” on the other side of the lake. We went the week before Labor Day. Basically had the camp to ourselves.

Some raccoons did attempt to steal our car… or they were after the marshmallows in the backseat.

Remote and beautiful

This campground is in the most remote part of the Dinosaur National Monument. Big campspots with a few Cottonwood trees right on the Green River. Can be busy with rafts launching and retrieving. The gates are the entry into the canyon. Amazing! Worth the stop if you have the time.

So beautiful and tranquil

The Grand Mesa is beautiful. Good separation between campspot. Lots of big RVs but lots of trees to make each spot feel cozy. Great fishing at the lakes.

Loved it!

We visited the Stanley area last year just before the solar eclipse and everything in the area was booked or very busy. We came upon Blind Creek and found a nearly empty campground. It was fabulous. My wife wants to live there. Vault toilets, fire rings and picnic tables. Several good spots for RVs and lots of good tent spots. Can make reservations.

Close to Stanley, but too close to, the road

A nice pull off campground along the river. Too close to the road for our tastes, but nothing wrong with it.

Yellowstone goodness

A well run National Park campground with lots of amenities. We were there in May and it snowed! Many of the sites were very muddy or had standing water. Great home base for visiting the south loop of the park and Yellowstone lake.

Beautiful park

A well maintained beautiful state park on the river. It has full amenities. All the spots are flat with a paved spot for our trailer.

Great state park

Just stayed there one night. Nice, clean, campground in the cottonwood trees. There’s a nice lake and some amazing geological features just north of the park.

Middle of nowhere awesomeness!

We were the only people there…

20 minutes south of Rawlins on a dirt road. It is a small lake with a boat dock 2 vault toilets and a small campground and that is it. If you like solitude this place was great, set in rolling sagebrush prairie of Wyoming. We stopped there just for the night on our way to Yellowstone. A storm came through as the sun went down so no night sky to view. It did get quite windy. Watch those camp fires!

Nice Yellowstone break

A small, clean campground. Just a few minutes up the hill from Gardiner. 15+ campspots. Vault toilets, fire rings, picnic tables. Many spots on grass for comfy tent camping and some with big spots that will fit RVs. Upper part of the campground was very open. It was full of campers with their horse trailers as there are several trails around the campground. Eagle Creek runs along one side of the campground providing the only trees in the campground. 2 campspots tucked in the trees, the rest in the open. $7 per night as of May 2018.

We stopped there after a week of Yellowstone action arriving the Friday morning of the Memorial Day weekend with plans to resupply our little trailer, do some laundry, and get a proper shower just down the hill in Gardiner. A few spots were open. By early afternoon the camp was full. We spent Friday afternoon relaxing, reading, and watching the ridgeline above the campground for the occasional Bison that would pop up. Friday evening was a bit chaotic with the steady stream of vehicles pulling through the grounds looking for a place to camp. We spent part of Saturday resupplying at the grocery store and doing laundry in town. The laundrymat had 3 pay showers. $5 for 10min. While that may seem like a lot of money. When you have a weeks worth of camp stink on you, it’s totally worth it.

While the campground itself is not much to write home about, it’s proximity to Gardiner and the North entrance to Yellowstone made it a great place to stop for a resupply. If we find ourselves back in Gardiner, I would stay there again.
