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.
All park campgrounds that were first come, first served are moving to an advance reservation system. Campsites will be reservable for the 2021 season on Recreation.gov beginning January 26, 2021 at 8:00 a.m. Mountain Standard Time. On that date, reservations will be available for stays through July 26, 2021, and then on a rolling six-month basis thereafter.
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.
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.
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..
Grassy Lake Road in the John D. Rockefeller, Jr Memorial Parkway has 14 designated campsites in 8 areas along the road, free, first-come, first-served after June 1. These sites are primitive with no water but do include shared toilets, bear boxes, and trash facilities. Camp only in designated sites, proper food storage required to protect wildlife, park only in parking areas, no discharging of firearms, and follow leave no trace guidelines.
