Grand Teton National Park Camping

Anyone who is interested in doing some Grand Teton National Park camping should be happy to know that there are no less than seven campgrounds that can be found within the park boundaries. The majority are National Park Service campgrounds, and generally speaking, all of the sites are first-come, first-served. The Grand Teton Lodge Company does accept reservations for its three campgrounds, but only for groups that have ten or more members.

Six out of the seven campgrounds that call Grand Teton National Park home offer sites for both tents and RVs. Only two offer RV hookups, however. They are the Flagg Ranch Campground and the Colter Bay Trailer Village. As for the one campground that doesn’t accommodate RVs, it is the Jenny Lake Campground.

Also worth noting when it comes the park’s campgrounds is the fact that they tend to fill up fast. In fact, campers often have to claim a spot early in the morning or by the early afternoon hours at the very latest. The one campground that doesn’t tend to fill up fast is the Gros Ventre Campground. This has a lot to do with the fact that it is the largest of the bunch.

Should campers have trouble securing a site at one of the Grand Teton National Park campgrounds, they can always turn to the campgrounds that are found outside of the park boundaries. There are several options, with the area around Jackson Hole being a good place to start. One example of these area campgrounds is the Snake River Park KOA. You can find it some twelve miles south of Jackson along U.S. 26/89/191. If you're visiting during the rainy season or would rather stay at one of the Grand Teton hotels, there are plenty within an easy driving distance of the park.
