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 will be able to do so by visiting Recreation.gov beginning January 26, 2021. 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.

How do I get ready to make a reservation on Recreation.gov?

Note that complete campground and site-specific information may not be available on Recreation.gov before January 26, 2021.

 

Know booking windows and inventory release times.
Bookings for Grand Teton National Park campgrounds on Recreation.gov are available on a 6-month rolling basis, which means each day, a new arrival date become available to book. That inventory is released daily at 8:00 AM Mountain time. You will not be able to book earlier than this time.

  

Create an account at Recreation.gov
If you do not already have a Recreation.gov account, you will need to create one. There is no cost to create an account. Create your account at least a day or two before you want to make your reservation to ensure a smooth process and allow time to address any issues. 

Plan ahead and know what you want.
Research the various campgrounds, facilities and site types and locations on Recreation.gov so you know what you want in advance and are ready with your preferred dates. Consider second options for locations that sell out quickly. Note that complete campground and site-specific information may not be available on Recreation.gov before January 26, 2021.  

 

Ensure that you are logged in.
It is recommended that you log in just 5 minutes prior to the release time. If you log in earlier than that, you may run into a security timeout; this will require you to sign in again.

 

Campsites will typically show available before the release time.
You will be able to select the dates that you want but will not be able to add them to your cart until the release time. Adding the reservation to your cart too early will cause an error that will require you to refresh and re-select your dates and site. This may cause you to lose your desired reservation.
