$36.50 (senior rate discounted from $48) per night was for a level asphalt pad site with 50 amp electric, picnic table, and fire ring. There are less expensive sites if you don’t want/require electricity. Some of the loops allow generator use from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. while others are generator free areas. The campground has many large trees as well as low growing plants separating the generous sites. There was a bathroom with cold running water but no soap or showers. The park staff was very friendly and helpful. Bicycles are permitted on park roads and on the two lane paved bike trails throughout the park. Moose wandered through the campground offering plenty of photo opportunities. Jackson is the nearest city and it has most everything you need. AT&T cell service was two bars of 4G. We used our Milliencom jetpack for internet access as it received three bars of 4G LTE. There were two OTA PBS TV stations and many radio stations. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Motorhome.

Very friendly staff. Dump station has water, nothing at site. No WiFi, but telephone reception. We were there when Moose were in the campground, and Bison just outside the park, so took some great photos. Stayed two nights. Jackson just down the road. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I was very disappointed by this park. My main criticisms are that the campground is extremely run down (paved roads are so broken up they are almost gravel) and it's far from EVERYTHING. Here's why I rated it a 6 instead of a 3: You camp in an OK forest and there's a beautiful river a short hike away. The campground is quiet, safe, and clean. The restrooms are typical NPS restrooms. We lucked out and got a handicap site, so had a paved parking area for both the motorhome and tow vehicle, a paved area with picnic table, and 50 amp electric hookup. Since these sites were recently built, they were in great condition. But the rest of the campground looks like it was abandoned 20 years ago. The potholes in the roads and gravel sites were very depressing and really hurt the ambiance of the campground. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects senior park pass. Roads and sites run small. If they would move the back retention logs it would give sites much more space. Fire pit, picnic table and restrooms, otherwise no hookups. Sites are mixed trees and open and most slightly off level. We had bison move through the park each evening down to the river. Good hiking and national park sites close by, Moose Junction, Jenny Lake, Taggert Lake, Phelp's Lake @ Rockafeller center (best trails in the park!). Friendly host and close to Jackson for activities, fuel and grocery. If you're headed to Yellowstone you Must stock up on groceries and fuel as it's your last chance for reasonable prices and selection before you reach Montana. And the scenery...priceless !

We stayed in the RV-electric section of the park. It was clean and well-laid out. There are a mix of dirt sites and paved sites. We stayed in each by getting a dirt site the first night and moving to a paved one for the rest of our stay. Some of the dirt sites are quite small and would not work for our small (29 ft) motorcoach. Getting a level site could be a problem. All the paved sites were spacious and mostly level. The campground hosts and attendants were very nice and helpful. There is no wifi here but we had strong enough signals on Verizon and AT&T to connect to the internet. We would definitely stay here again! We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Motorhome.

Gros Venture was our last resort; however very glad we lucked out here. Close to the hiking and things we wanted to do; and easy driving to catch the things up at Coulter Bay area. Large campsites in the area. Park is currently undergoing renovations and installing electric at a number of sites. We had a newly renovated site; huge, and paved pad and parking area, with electricity, fire pit and picnic table. Site was level fore and aft and left to right, a bonus. Washrooms were immaculate with running water but no soap provided and only cold water. Hosts were very friendly and informative about things to see and do. Only drawback is the price of $46 per night; but like everywhere in the Jackson area bring money! We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate is with NP Access pass. Park has paved roads but sites are gravel. There is a fire pit and picnic table at site. Area is sagebrush. A moose frequented our campsite. There is a river for fishing. Dump station and water available. Restrooms are clean but no soap dispenser nor paper towels/hand dryer. Stopped for threes nights while on our way up to Yellowstone. Would stay here again. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Lots of trees. Very nice management. A river was behind campground that you could walk to easily. Generators off at 8 pm. A moose hung out around camp area. Saw the prints in the mud, but in the two days there didn't see the moose. Coyotes yipping at night. Fifteen to twenty minutes from downtown Jackson.

The best part about this park is that it is in the NP and it is cheap! The sites are a mix bag. If they moved the logs back some, they would have many more available sites. We tried a couple spots before we were able to find one to fit our 38 foot motorhome. Full sun, but the weather was not hot! We stayed 3 days because it was convenient to the southern part of the park. And Jackson. Would prefer Colter Bay because of the hookups and larger sites, but this worked out just fine. Would stay here again. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed in one of the ADA electric hookups sites for $35.50; would have been even more without our passes. Rate is ridiculous but really needed the hookup. Site very wide and paved. Restroom super clean but no soap or dryer: even Colter Bay has that. Highlight was seeing moose in the campground. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Motorhome.

Gros Ventre campground is about 12 miles south of the Moose entrance to the Grant Tetons. The dump station is across the street from the campground office. Turning right just beyond the office is designated for tents and no generators are allowed. Turning left are the loops for RVs and tents. Generators here are allowed between 8 AM and 8 PM. This campground is dry camping, except for the handicap sites. The sites are really a mixed bag. Some sites are level and large, some are not. Weeds and shrubs are slowing taking over all of the sites. The sites and roads used to be paved many, many years ago. Crumbing pot-holed pavement is all that is left. The bathrooms are typical for National Park Service campgrounds. Old and very dated, however, they are clean. Verizon air card did not work from our site and the cell phone only had one bar. Overall, this is a nice campground. Far enough away to avoid the crowds, but close enough to access the southern section of the Grand Tetons. We would definitely come back here again.

Loved this campground. See previous Aug 13 review for details; I won't repeat that person's great review. We got one of the sites that aren't in the loops (#5) because we asked for a quiet place where we wouldn't have to deal with noisy people, given our previous night's disaster at Colter Bay. We got exactly what we asked for: lots of room and no one around. Our only complaint was that we had no shade, but that also meant we had gorgeous views of the Tetons. Some early risers (6AM) leaving the park, but that was the only noise. Great location near Mormon Row, near the National Forest lands (where you should take your dog), and not far from Jackson. We will definitely consider coming back here (if we don't stay at the National Forest campground at Lake Atherton, which was really wonderfully quiet and peaceful). Boondocking at its best, since we had plentiful sunshine to charge our solar panels, delicious fresh water to fill our tanks, and a very good dump station to, well, you know. And friendly office folks who took pains to make you happy. We most definitely were. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Motorhome.

What a pleasant surprise! We spent 5 nights there including July 4th when we did not even leave the campground. There are sites for everyone. Some only big enough for a tent camper with a car up to a 45' bus conversion. There are sites with no shade & sites with plenty of shade. Take your pick. The only point lost was because, well, $21 for dry camping?? Just a bit much even if in a national park. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is in Teton National Park but outside the entrance. The senior rate is $10. Sites are well spaced. The campground is within short walking distance of the Gros Ventre River. The staff was very helpful. Pronounced Grow Vont. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a good spot to stay for one night while visiting Jackson. There's nothing special about the campground, not much shade and mostly just fields of sagebrush. There are no hook ups, but the cost was only $21, and it gave me a spot to sleep, empty my tanks and fill with water before heading back east.
