This park is wonderful. The first thing to greet us was the awesome smell of the pine trees. We were here for a week, and found it close to most everything. It was about 40 minutes from Jackson, but close to Jenny Lake and numerous spots for viewing the amazing Teton Mountains. It is not far from the South Entrance to Yellowstone. We drove up to DuBois, a must see drive. There is a village right outside the park with General Store, Visitor's Center, Gift Shop, Laundry, and access to Jackson Lake. There are also two restaurants, but we didn't try either. We camped at Colter Bay Village Campground -- No Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We only spent one day in Jackson. Lots and lots of shops and grocery stores. Only a K-Mart. Many of the restaurants close at 3 p.m. and don't open again until 5:30 for dinner. We ate at Bubba's BBQ, and it was very good. They have a huge salad bar and good sandwiches. Otherwise, we ate at our RV or in Yellowstone. About 45 minutes to Old Faithful with stops at Lewis Falls and Keppler Cascades.

Electric sites available for medical reasons. No other hook-ups. Level spacious sites.
Only showers are near the General Store which is not that close to campground. Showers are $4.25 per person. Poor Verizon reception & WiFi. Great campground but rating as a 8 because of shower situation and unclean bathroom(1 of the 4 toilets unclean). We camped at Colter Bay Village Campground -- No Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

We were lucky enough to get one of the sites that has electric only hookup. Also, it was open and we were able to get satellite reception and decent Verizon signal. The campground is convenient to all the activities in Grand Teton and we traveled to Yellowstone to avoid moving the RV, also could not get a reservation in Yellowstone and RV was too big for the campgrounds. Would definitely stay here again if in the area. The sites without electric are OK, first come first served. Our rate was for a Golden Eagle Pass.

If you can live with no frills and limited generator use 8am to 8pm, this is such a great experience. Remember you will be out sightseeing and in the summer months you may not get back to your camp site until late. So plan ahead for eating back at camp. We saw many bear, elk, deer, moose. They tag the bears and monitor them. Google bear 399; she has her own page. Very sad when we were there some motorist hit and killed her latest cub. Please drive slow and with caution there.

The boat cruise on Jackson lake very nice as well as Yellowstone Lake cruise.

This was possibly my best trip ever camping. Will go back. We camped at Colter Bay Village Campground -- No Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Get bear spray elsewhere very expensive there. Don't try to drive through the park to see Yellowstone in one day. It takes like 5-6 hrs just to do lower loop. Either take a few days to do both parks, staying at the Tetons, or camp in both parks. WiFi and phone service not so good. Restaurant food is pricey but usually can get a little WiFi in them.

You're in a national park, no hookups. Our site was level with a great deal of privacy. No complaints. $12 with my senior pass. No reservations. We camped at Colter Bay Village Campground -- No Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Not your usual NP/NF campground. Kinda like "parallel parking" camping. I would not call them small loops along road, but more like spots to pull off camp ground road. The site itself with picnic table and fire ring are nice enough. Very busy while we were there yet staff were very pleasant and helpful. For those who like that early morning cup of Java be advised that quiet hrs. are till 8am. Would stay here again if no other NP/NF camp ground was available.

We liked this campground. Yes, it is 1950's and the parking pads are in desperate need of resurfacing. The bath rooms have blue tile walls and ancient plumbing, but they have flush toilets and they worked. There are no hookups - you know that before you register. There is a dump and water. Store, gas, laundry and showers were within easy walking distance. I thought it was well worth the $21 ($10.50 with Golden Age card). I liked it better than the full hookup RV park next door. If you want full hook ups and fancy surrounding go next door to the RV park and pay $60 or stay in Jackson and pay $75. I would gladly stay there again.

Just hated this place. You aren't given any choice in site selection. The site we got (O loop) was the farthest away from any services, and we were located directly across from the bathroom and dumpster. Note: sites aren't "sites"--they are simply pullouts on the roadside. This means any slideout you may have protrudes onto the road, and walkers (or unruly wild children) are mere inches from where you might be sitting in your dinette. And you're sitting inside because the aforementioned unruly children are riding their bikes THROUGH your campsite, despite your stern warnings not to. That's early evening. Wait till after dark when the teens come out and holler until 1AM or so. And then the babies start screaming in the bathhouse at 6AMas you're try to get some sleep. We asked the ranger the next morning if they ever patrol the campground. She stared at me blankly. Screw that; we forfeited our second night payment and skedaddled. We would never, ever stay here again. Ever. We camped at Colter Bay Village Campground -- No Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Infrastructure in this area is from the 1950's per staff, and in dire need of help. Too bad the GTLC has raised the rates again. Thank goodness for our discount passes. We were assigned a really bad site but allowed to find a better one. Still, too many big rigs along the road and running noisy generators most of the day. The campground had some kind of maintenance crisis one night and had to evacuate 4 of the loops. The the boiler went out in the Village laundry/shower house: so, no hot water there. Jackson Lake reservoir was drawn down, so the Colter marina was closed and boats gone in late August. Sad to see such disrepair.

Basic campsite only for RVs. Drive-through site along the loop path in the woods; each site has a large place with table and BBQ. Shower facility far away from most of the sites, and only two showers per camper, per day included. Limited restroom capacity, but clean. No mobile, nor WiFi. Good price/quality.

Our site was a gravel pull-through right next to the loop road. It was so unlevel that I didn’t have enough boards to get it level. On our loop many of the sites seemed crowded, but our site (L246) had plenty of privacy on the curb side. There was a table and a rock fireplace included. No utilities, but two dump stations on the way out and another on the way in that was more convenient for freshwater fill up. I noticed some sites on J Loop now have electric. These may be the ADA accessible sites mentioned on the website. It was walking distance to the village shops and visitor center. If I could get a more level site I would consider staying again, otherwise I wouldn’t bother. We camped at Colter Bay Village Campground -- No Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

The view on the way to the park is great, but we couldn't see the mountains from our site. The attendants were nice and let us drive around and pick our site before paying. The road is narrow, especially when the sites are full, but we were able to get through without much of a problem. The sites were level and easy to pull into. They were very private and had nice deep firepits, along with picnic tables at each site. You are able to run your generator from 8am-8pm, which is nice, but also allows for your evenings to be very quiet. Being in the park, access to the scenic routes was easy and we were able to travel during the peak wildlife hours, which was nice. We would definitely stay here again.

The good thing about this park is location. It is near Jackson Lake, and close to the many attractions in Grand Teton Park. The campsites are essentially a wide spot on the side of the road, and not particularly attractive. They are easy to get into, even with our 40 foot rig. For some reason many of the sites had a big mud puddle; in our case right where the leveler would go, requiring a leveling board. While adequate, the sites are hardly private, and since everyone seems to run their generator at the same tome, they are a bit noisy. However, as pointed out, in previous reviews, the National Park is the only game in town and for sure, the National Park is wonderful.

Yes, the campground is old and unimproved but the Village setting makes it worth a stay. Easy to walk or bike over to VC, laundry, showers, and marina. Much to do and beautiful view of Tetons, though it was smoky/hazy in August. Also, the Colter Bay area had a water main break so they had to bring in port-potties and water tanker trucks. Really roughing it! Not as crazy busy as Yellowstone. We camped at Colter Bay Village Campground -- No Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.
