We stayed at Colter Bay RV village for 7 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We read many reviews about how uneven the sites were but did not have any problem at all getting level. There were some spots in the first 4 or 5 loops that were larger sites. We had a fairly tight spot but was able to put out our slide and awning with no problem at all. We did have to put our screen tent up next to the trailer under the awning but that wasn't a bad thing because it was right here when we came out of the trailer. We were within walking distance to the beach, convenience store and laundromat. The convenience store was well stocked and fairly reasonably priced for being in a national park. The did have the best raspberry cinnamon rolls ever. The staff was great and told us everything we needed to know upon arrival. When my brother, who was camping in the site next to us, had a problem, they were here immediately and got it taken care of. The Wi-Fi is available only at the laundromat and was very slow, reminded me of dial-up. There was so much to do right around the RV village that you wouldn't have to leave at at all. Horseback riding, sailing, motor boat rental, gift shops, restaurants, convenience store, museums, etc. We used this as a base camp to see the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone and really loved it. We will certainly be back.
We have been going to Jordanelle as our "first" camping trip of the year, on Memorial Day, for the last 3 years and have really enjoyed it. We have used several different spots through out the camp and on all but 1 of the different loops. We have found that the camp hosts are great and with the exception of one occasion have never had a problem with how attentive they are and very, very helpful. The spots are somewhat small by the waterfront but you can get in with some creative maneuvering, though I wouldn't try to get a big rig in these spots. The Showers are a great convenience though they can get a bit "used", as in dirty, on busy weekends. There are playgrounds strategically located throughout the park and are well kept up. There is a laundromat here as well, though not a lot of machines but they don't seem to be used all that much. We needed to throw some laundry in after the kids played in the mud and we didn't have to wait. It says that there is sewer hookups available but as far as I know the only spots with sewer hookups are for the camp hosts of each loop. All the spots we have used have not had sewer. There is a dump station in the park but can get very crowded if you wait till the end of the weekend to use it. Once the trees in the various loops grow up some more this will certainly a 10 star rating! We will be here again on Memorial day 2011!!
We loved our stay here! We had a beautiful beach front spot in the older campground and with the tall old growth trees we had lots and lots of shade!! We had no problems at all with the power or with people driving too fast. It was crowded but what can you expect on a holiday weekend? In the Big Creek campground there is a lot more room than in the newer Cottonwood or Birch campgrounds. We will definitely be back here again. We loved it.
We were here in July and pretty much had the campground to ourselves. We had a great spot with fairly large trees that helped a little with the heat but it sure was hot. We had a fairly level spot and as another review said the water and power were a bit too far back in the back up spots. The showers were nice after a long hot day on the rocks. The dump station is conveniently located on the way out of the park and is very spacious. Cell phone access was spotty at best with Verizon but were able to get a signal by standing on the table. We will be back.
