Camping is a great way to immerse yourself in the stunning scenery of Grand Teton National Park. There are many options for camping. If you are feeling adventurous and searching for solitude, get a permit to pitch a tent in the backcountry. Looking for a few more comforts? You can tent camp or park and plug in your recreational vehicle at over 1,000 campsites at seven park campgrounds.
Most sites offer standard amenities including modern comfort stations, potable water, metal fire grates, picnic tables, and metal bear boxes.
The maximum length of stay is 7 days per person at Jenny Lake, and 14 days at all other campgrounds—no more than 30 days in the park per year.
For campground status contact entrance stations or visitor centers. Camping is not permitted within the park along roadsides, at overlooks, or parking areas. Doubling up in campsites is prohibited and there are no overflow facilities. Most campgrounds are first come, first serve.
Other options include camping in the John D. Rockefeller Memorial Parkway, National Forest, or Yellowstone National Park, or at private campgrounds in the local area—for more information, contact the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce by calling 307-733-3316 or visiting their website..
