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. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park campground is unusual. Lots of sagebrush and scrubby trees. Sites are of decent size and easy enough to negotiate. National Park rules are first come first serve so best time to find a site is 11 am. Nestled right in the park, this campground is very convenient for seeing the Grand Tetons. Picnic tables and fire rings, no hook-ups, dump station. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice place to stay if you want to be close to Jackson, Wyoming. Wildlife present in campground sometimes. We picked campsite without hookups since we had a generator. Gravel sites. fire ring, picnic table. Great value if you have a senior national parks pass. We only paid $10.00 a night for a campsite without hookups. Recommended the Gros Ventre Campground to friends that were in Jackson after we were there and they enjoyed it too. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

About 15 miles to Jackson, Wyoming.

We were in D loop, in a spacious, level site with electric, no water or sewer hookups, but the do have a double dump station, and potable water fill.
The campground is roughly 15 miles from Jackson, nice quiet, out of the way campground on the Gros Ventre river.
Large campground with some "no generator" areas.
Best part of the stay was waking to Moose feeding in the campground.
I thought that it was a little pricey for only electric, even with the senior pass, but I guess it was worth it considering the location and beauty.
If ever in the area again, we would certainly stay here again. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a favorite place, and we had perfect weather in late June. D loop has electric hookup at discount ($38) for seniors or an Access pass. There are some nice big, probably level sites scattered around all loops, and the CG usually doesn't fill up. Restrooms were clean; no soap. Saw a bull moose in one morning- happens a lot. Two dump stations are used frequently. Very nice workampers in office. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Motorhome.

We were in the D loop with 50 amp electricity. The spot had enough room for our rig and toad and we are 45". There was a concrete barrier towards the back of the site that did prevent us from backing all the way into the spot. We actually parked to the side of the barrier so that we could fit into the spot. The campground has many animals passing through and you do have to be aware for the possibility of bear. The location is great for seeing the park, and Jackson. We would definitely stay here again in the future. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful campground run by the NPS. Sites are gravel and most aren't very level. Each site has a picnic table and a fire ring. Bear warnings in effect at all time - you'll get the bear speach upon check in. Partial view of the Tetons and very close to Jackson Hole, Jenny Lake, Mormon Row and other beautiful scenery that the area is famous for. Once you check in at the ranger station (where the dump site / water is also located) you can either turn to the left (generator allowed from 8 a.m. - 10 p.m.) or right (quiet area, no generators). Friendly and helpful folks at the check-in. We were given a spot in the C loop for our 40' bus, but when we pulled up to the site, we realized quite quickly that there was no way we could fit our coach. Walked it off at 33'. We parked and drove around in the toad looking for a space that would be adequate enough for us, but they are few and far between. We did finally find one before the sun set, got set up, and even saw a moose wander through the campground on the way to the river. Challenge with the sites is that they have logs placed in the middle or towards the back of the sites (immoveable), making them much, much shorter than they could be if the logs were removed or pushed towards the back further. There are larger spaces in the D loop - which is where the electric hook-ups are located (if you want to fork out $48/night), and the B loop (which was closed). So while we loved the campground, large rigs (40' or over) beware - spaces long enough to accommodate you are a challenge to come by. Bring bug spray too. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground -- NPS Campground in a Motorhome.

$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.

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 !

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.

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.
