We stayed here for the month of September. We really like the Tetons and this is the best campground to explore it from. Yes it's dry camping for $29/night but check the private campgrounds in town and see what they charge. It's insane. This location is much better than in town for exploring the Park. And moose routinely roam through the campground! We were here last year for September as well. They're in the process of repaving the roads and sites so it should be very nice next year. Hope they don't increase the rates! We camped at Gros Ventre Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Fifth Wheel.

I was so nervous about the first come, first served campground process at Yellowstone. We arrived around 4pm so we paid for one night at a non-electric site. It is a weird process where you drive around and pick an open site and come back to sign up for it. You need to have a list of sites in case someone else is zipping around looking for a site and beats you to it. Then we got up early the next morning and were at the office by 7:40am with a list of electric sites that had our date on the site as their checkout date. Those sites aren't a guarantee - the occupant can always go and add more dates. But we had a list of all of the sites with our date as their checkout and they were listed from favorite to least favorite. Our #2 choice had already left by 8am when the office opened and, since we were first in line, we grabbed that spot. Behind our site was the river and we walked to it two different afternoons. There are no showers. We drove to Climbers Ranch for a shower. It was about a 35 minute drive. $5 per person for a shower. The shower curtains were white and nearly transparent and once wet they were practically clear. Luckily there were only two other ladies in the small bathroom but I was still a little uncomfortable being on display while I took a shower. We decided not to do that again and took super quick showers in the RV. That did mean we needed to dump more often. As other reviewers have said, the lines can be long. But everyone is pretty mellow - you are on vacation after all! We saw a Moose in our campground's inner loop one morning. She was resting in the grass and after an hour or so she was up and eating heading our way! That was really neat. There is also a mom Moose and two babies just up the road heading toward Jackson - if there are a lot of cars pulled over, you know they are visible. I had NO T-Mobile and my husband had NO Verizon. You are in a dead zone! We camped at Gros Ventre Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Travel Trailer.

Hands down our favorite campground of the trip. Loop C is beautiful -- sagebrush punctuated by cottonwoods with the Gros Ventre river flowing by. And Loop C is freshly paved in its entirety, which we appreciate because it cuts down on the dust. It also rained while we were there so that helped too. Caught cutthroat trout and grilled them over the fire for dinner. Beautiful, fragrant, lovely campsite. We had no hookups, no electric, no water, no sewer, no showers, no problem. We ran the generator for about an hour each evening to keep the batteries charged. The few electric sites are away from the river. We prefer the outer loop closest to the river. Our request at the gate was, "a campsite big enough for a 35 foot fifth wheel. My husband loves to fish so as close to the river as possible". And that's exactly what they gave us. Perfect! Wheezy old flush toilets in the restrooms and a sink. Dump on the way out. Get up early -- 300 plus campers and one dump station. Don't care! The setting and the river make up for it. We "bathed" in the river each night. Hiked each day. VIsited Jackson a couple of times to poke around and have a meal. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Fifth Wheel.

Grandson rode his bike everywhere and attended a ranger talk. The river was up and rushing in early July. By August, it should be down somewhat and very user-friendly.

We stayed for 5 days. Be aware of possible lines of folks waiting to dump or get fresh water at the entrance area. A bargain campground in the Jackson area. There was paving in process when we arrived but it appears to be completed. The nearby restroom was easily accessible and well maintained. We saw 2 moose in the south section - F loop. The campground was never full during our time, but the town of Jackson was full of visitors. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We attended ranger evening programs on bison, the Gros Ventre landslide (3 miles X 1/2 mile) and bats. We visited the slide area, a short drive to the east of the campground. There are many places to view the Tetons and the view changes with the weather and time of day. We observed bison, pronghorn antelope, moose and birds. During our stay we experienced sun, rain and hail. We ate at Bubba's Barbecue in Jackson west of downtown - great food and parking.

Great location for exploring Grand Teton as well as Jackson. We were there the second week in May and loops B, C, and D were closed for regrading and repaving. Not sure how long that will take but may impact those coming in early summer. Verizon LTE was great. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Motorhome.

The campground is close to Jackson, Moose and all of the activities that the area offers. It is heavily treed and moose saunter around the campground on occasion. We stayed in Loop C as we didn't need the electric hookup. This loop offers sites that are spacious with lots of space and trees in between. We can see the river and the moose from our motorhome. It's beautiful here. We enjoyed it and will return. For less than $30 a night in a tourist destination I believe we got more than our monies worth for the week that we stayed. The only big con is the inability to fill up with water or use the dump station in a timely manner. There always seems to be a line. There needs to be more water fill stations. And another con is the state of the roads - lots of potholes and the friendliness of the folks in the office could be better. I'm sure it's not easy to deal with people frustrated with finding no spots available but really they need to take a deep breath. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Motorhome.

Even though this is dry camping you have to take into consideration you're inside the National Park. Everything outside the park and in town is amazingly expensive. Being inside the park has tremendous advantages if you're into wildlife viewing or photography. Location is everything. We had moose walking through the campground on an almost daily basis. The proximity for sunrise photo shoots versus driving in from Jackson is a huge advantage. The value for the location is very good. It is spartan however. If you need lots of amenities then this probably isn't for you. We stayed here three weeks and thoroughly enjoyed it. The final week we moved to the electric sites as it was getting pretty cold at night. Not many sites for 40'+ rigs but we managed. Verizon signal was ok but data throughput was pretty slow.

This is a National Park Campground, run by Grand Teton Lodge Co. They have left the campground in its natural state - trees and sagebrush. Interior paved roads are fairly rough, with some potholes. Gravel sites are fairly level, with plenty of room between sites. A great campground to walk my dogs. There are restrooms and a dump station, but no showers. There are a few electric sites, but no sites are reservable. We were told in order to get an electric site, "show up at 8 a.m.; maybe someone will be leaving." We would stay again; we'll just plan on running our generator. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a hard park to rate, we stayed in non-electric sites with no hook-ups. There is lots of space between sites. The interior roads are badly beat up and there is a lot of differed maintenance. The location of the park is good. We where on a busy road which took away from the enjoyment. Moose where common as they wondered thru the park. We thought that in the middle on Sept it would not be filled but the CG was full every night. It was the busiest I have seen the Grand Tetons. Next time we will plan ahead and try to get hook-ups at Coulter Bay. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Motorhome.

This is a rustic campground. If you want full hookups, level,concrete pads, and showers you won't like it. We prefer lots of space, good views, and we don't mind gravel so we really like it. The electric sites are much more expensive than the dry camping sites, so we rely on solar with a bit of backup from the generator on rainy days. There are shady spots, but with the solar we prefer the sunny ones, and there are many. This campground does occasionally fill up, but not often. We have stayed her multiple times for a week at a time, and we still keep coming back. The staff is sometimes gruff, but they are helpful. The site we had this time was particularly large, a nice bonus. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Travel Trailer.

I stayed with my girlfriend and our two dogs for 5 nights while exploring the Tetons National Park. The location of the campground is excellent, with easy access to Jackson and the park. Technically, the campground is in the park, though before Moose entrance. As previous writers contributed, many of the sites and bathrooms are tired, with uneven gravel surfaces. There are paved sites available for annual pass holders. We stayed in loop D, with electric site. The campground is very spacious, and close to the Gros Ventre River, making it ideal for walking dogs. An especially nice route is to walk along Mormon Road. Oh, and we encountered three moose within the campground. Overall, the place would be perfect with a facelift and little investment. I'd still return.

I dry camp here and stayed in Loop B #113, which allow generators. I was pretty much the only one using the generator when I needed it during meal time. I have a short but double wide site with quite a bit of shade so that is perfectly fine for my 20 foot travel trailer. Like others have said, the facility and campground look a bit dated, but you can also say that is part of the charm. Having said that, it would definitely be nicer if the sites are better graded and manicured. Thus my 3 star rating. I didn't see any animals during my stay, which was just after the Total Eclipse, so the big crowd might have scared all the wildlife away! The campground is a little bit further away from all the major Grand Teton attractions/sights but that's ok because it will give you the opportunity to drive around the whole scenic loop without having to even plan for it!

Its been 5 years since I was last here, and 50 years since I started coming here. Very little has changed. The roads are bad, the sites, which were once paved, are now gravel and dirt. The bathrooms were built almost 40 years ago and are bad. There are signs everywhere telling you to flush the toilets numerous times because of low pressure / faulty hardware. You can expect a long wait at the antiquated dump station. The only good thing was all the trees were well trimmed this year. The GTLC staff try their best, but they are working with an old, broken down campground. Meanwhile, NPS is building another new building at Park headquarters. Too bad they haven't invested a dime in Gros Ventre in 40 years. But, if you want to stay in the Park, then they have the exclusive.

Gros Venture campground was a great find. Thank You to Sean and Christie of Long Long Honeymoon for recomending this campground. The Teaton Mountains are a great backdrop to the campsite. Although we did not see any moose this time, the campground was still very peaceful and quiet. It is also close to Jackson Hole so we could go to town for dinner. We will definately be back.

Before entering Grand Teaton or Yellowstone Park, stop by the visitor center in the town and pick up a GAPERGUIDE. This is a GPS auto tour guide that will tell you all about the park and what is coming up around the next bend while touring the parks. It is wll worth the $
