Camping in Grand Teton National Park 

Campgrounds in Grand Teton are Now Reservation-Only

Visitors Should Plan Ahead and Book Early as Sites will No Longer Be Available on a First-Come Basis.

Camping at all campgrounds in Grand Teton National Park and the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway is available by reservation only. Reservations for the 2021 season can be booked on a 6- or 12-month rolling basis depending on the specific campground. Additional details are available on the individual campground pages.  

Visitors wishing to reserve a campsite at the Colter Bay Campground, Jenny Lake Campground, and Gros Ventre Campground are able to do so by visiting Recreation.gov. Please note that reservations for these campgrounds cannot be made through the Grand Teton Lodge Company website or call center. 

Reservations for the 2021 season at Colter Bay RV Park, Colter Bay Tent Village, and Headwaters at Flagg Ranch Campground and RV Park can be made on gtlc.com, however reservations for these campgrounds will migrate to Recreation.gov for the 2022 season. 

Campsite reservations are expected to fill quickly! Visitors are strongly encouraged to plan ahead and book early.

Visitors must create an account on the Recreation.gov website prior to making campground reservations. Those who already have an account are encouraged to confirm their login and password information. Learn more about how to get started on Recreation.gov.

 



Camping is freedom. When you are ready to trade the ordinary for a peaceful night sky filled with millions of stars, look no further than Grand Teton National Park. A more intimate experience than a hotel, camping allows you to become part of your surroundings, sleeping among the pines and beneath Teton sunsets. You can tent camp at Gros Ventre Campground, Jenny Lake Campground, Headwaters Campground, or Colter Bay Campground. Park and plug in your recreational vehicle at our Colter Bay RV Park or Headwaters RV Park. Looking for a few more comforts?  Headwaters Camper Cabins at Headwaters Campground, or the Colter Bay Tent Village, offer a comfortable alternative to traditional camping.

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.

Drown It. Stir It. Feel It. If your fire is too hot to touch then it's too hot to leave! Visitors are reminded that unattended or abandoned campfires can easily escalate into wildfires. Visit Teton Interagency Fire to learn more about fire safety and current fire regulations in place.

Be Bear Aware! Grand Teton National Park is home to black and grizzly bears, moose, deer, and other large animals. Bears are often seen on trails and in the developed areas. Being prepared for an animal encounter can help ensure the safety of you and the wildlife. Learn more about food storage and wildlife safety guidelines.
