The people are nice but the price for an electric site in this campground is ridiculous. $25 for dry which is fine but $51 for electric (WOW) how do they justify $26 per night more dollars to have electric! The sites are not very wooded. Lots of brush but not a lot of shade.. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a Federal campground inside the Grand Teton National Park. My wife and I have been coming here of years and enjoy it a lot. Moose wander through the campground and Buffalo and Pronghorns roam the fields across the road. An abandoned Mormon settlement that I find interesting is located just down the road.

The park is big with 318 sites. Some of the loops are 'no generators' and others specify a 10pm to 8am quiet time. The sites are spacious and include picnic tables and fire rings. However, space provided for parking your rig can be constraining. The rangers do their best to match the size of your rig with a site and welcome you to come back to see them if you don't fit. At times you must exercise some ingenuity to fix. For example, this year we are positioned sideways in the site as it is wider than it is long.

The Gros Ventre River passes on the south side of the park. You can often see Moose drinking there. The park has a rustic ambience and most of the sites have no utilities, dry camping ($13), though there are a few electrical sites. However, the electrical sites are $39 a night with a Senior Pass-$51 without. This is quite a step up from $13. Such decisions are typical of a government run park.

Space is first come-first served with sites assigned by the rangers when you register. We have never had difficulty getting a site. There are three dump stations and fresh water near the ranger station. The park is closed from October through May due to severe weather. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The park is in the Teton National Park. Enough said other than Teton means tit in French. French trappers are responsible for naming the three peaks now known as the South, Middle, and Grand Teton. They called the mountains "Les Trois Tetons," or "The Three Breasts." The Grand Teton-the tallest of the three-literally means "the big tit."

With views of the Tetons, a setting in a wooded park, a great site, and helpful people this park is a joy to stay in. Access roads are paved and easy to navigate. Our level, paved, back-in site (D174) was very spacious for our 37' MH, provided a large paved parking pad for our toad, and had a gravel patio with an oversized picnic table and fire ring. The electric hookup was convenient. There were no water or sewer connections, nor WiFi, nor laundry. We didn't use the bathrooms. The cheerful staff were very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. We consider this to be one of the most attractive parks of our entire summer voyage. The price, even net of an National Parks Senior Pass discount, might be seen a bit high without full hookups, but we considered it a decent value for all the rest of what this park offers. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Motorhome.

We opted to dry camp here and the rate reflects the Senior Pass. There are over 300 sites in this campground divided into several loops. While 1st come 1st serve, you register at the office and are assigned a site based on your preference and availability. Some loops have a no generator policy, while others allow generators to be run from 8AM-10PM. Some are shaded, the loop on the end has the least trees. Typical of NPS campsites, they have good spacing, each has a table and fire ring. Most are back-ins, but there are a few pull throughs which may be tricky for some larger rigs with slides as there may be trees in the arch of the pull through. This campground is about 7 miles from Jackson and so was convenient to visit the shops and activities there as well as tour the park. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We arrived at 4pm on a Friday in July and had no trouble getting a site. The A section has views of the mountains. This price is for dry camping. There is a loop with electric for a lot more money. If you want to enjoy Jackson, which is fabulous, this is the closest, reasonable CG. It's spacious, rustic, and charming. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Motorhome.

This is one of the National Parks that seem to have a wide variety of ratings. We opted to dry camp here and the rate reflects the Senior Pass. When we arrived around noon on a Thursday, there were a number of sites available, including electric hookups. We asked for and were given an open site where we could use our roof top TV satellite. We were able to use our Verizon for Internet connection. Although the reception was not real strong, it was adequate. I understand that the National Park campgrounds are being loved to death but I believe the management of this campground could do a much better job maintaining these sites. This campground has a "rode hard and put up wet" look which we felt gave it an unkempt and an unattractive look and feel. We probably would not stay here again.

We dry camped, since we didn't have reservations and the hook up area was full. Didn't mind that at all. The area is beautiful. Very peaceful and surroundings soothing. Close to Jackson Hole and the Tetons. People checking us in were friendly and helpful. There is a dump station at the entrance/exit of the park, where you can also get fresh water. Lots of space between sites. Only disappointment......we didn't see any animals like other reviewers made comments on. We were right next to the elk reserve. Beautiful area....loved it.

Love this campground and Jackson Hole/Tetons are spectacularly beautiful. We found Gros Ventre campground to be much less crowded than others in Grand Teton or Yellowstone parks. No reservations, but it is very large. Campground is constructed in several loops which definitely minimizes visual impact of so many campsites. Staff recommended we tour the campground, select 2or 3 sites we liked, and return to office for registration. Selecting multiple sites eliminates problem of losing chosen site to another camper. We chose a site with electrical hook up, but only one loop has electricity. No water or sewer hook ups, but dump site with potable water is very convenient--although we had to wait our turn for quite awhile. With senior discount, dry camp sites are only $13/night. All camp sites are either well shaded or have really great views. Campground is on a river with river access for fishing and walking. We will definitely return.

Nice campground with a good view of the Tetons depending on which site you stay. We enjoyed our week and would stay again given the value. The site is gravel with some pavement, it was barely large enough to hold our trailer and truck. This is a convenient location to Jackson and most of the Teton Park. A few OTA channels, but you need to have solar or a generator because there are no hookups. Verizon service was OK. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a wonderful National Park Campground. Very clean flush toilets, but no showers. Must bring your own soap and towels to wash hands. Everything was clean and the staff was very helpful. The roads are set up on loops so they are easy to navigate. The park host will provide information about the park upon arrival. Some areas do not allow generators (South Loops). Electricity is available in Loop D for 30+ sites on a first come basis and the other sites have generators hours between 8 AM to 10 PM on the north Loops. We will stay at Gros Ventre again.

We enjoyed our stay in this campground. It provided easy access to both Jackson Hole and Grand Tetons National Park. The sites are somewhat oddly laid out, however we had easy access to our space and plenty of room between us and the next sites. There are no sewer hookups. There is an easy access dump station with two dumps. There is also potable water available to fill tanks if needed. We would stay here again.

This is a great place to stay when visiting Grand Teton Park or Jackson WY. If you do not mind dry camping. There are some sites with power but they are first come first serve. We had three moose spend and hour or two within 20 feet of our coach. The sites are level and easy to get in and out of and very quiet. The camp ground does not fill up except for the sties with power. The staff is friendly and helpful. We will stay here again. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Motorhome.

We did not have power, sewer, or water. The dump station and water were convenient. The site was very spacious and beautiful. The generator hours were from 8am. to 10 pm. The campsite was quiet. The site was on gravel. The picnic table and fire ring were behind the parking spot. There was a moose family hanging around the campground. We would return any time.

We did not stay here but were very surprised by how tight the campground was. It was full due to the closing of nearby campground. Our trailer is only 17 ft but we would have had trouble getting into at least half of the sites. There were very nice bathrooms and showers at entrance to campground.
