Pretty Nice Stay
Some sites, including ours at #45, can be difficult to back into, as they are perpendicular to the road; other sites are at a good angle for backing into. Bathrooms have running water and flush toilets, but could be cleaner. There are some loops allow generators and some don't, so be sure when you make the reservation. There are spigots outside the bathrooms for filling water bottles. There are 2 sewer openings at the dump station, so please pull forward past the first one to dump your tanks. This will leave the other one open for the rig coming up behind you. About $25/night (plus a $2/day fee for water and tax). If you have a FedEx package delivered here they may deliver it to the post office in Kelly and drop it off there-and not tell you that's where it is. USPS won't deliver it. If it doesn't arrive when FedEx says it's been delivered drive to Kelly and see if it's on the counter topic the P.O.

Reserve In Advance Required
Through 2020 this was a relaxed first-come first-served campground which rarely was full. In 2021 it became Reservation Only. (Imagine our surprise when we pulled up ready to camp and were turned away!) the Pandemic created a boom in camping in Yellowstone. Good for you- Enjoy Your National Parks!
The newer north loops are nicely paved, but the southern loops are gravel pads. Fairly small sites in the south and no generators allowed where there are mostly tents.
The reservation.gov site will allow you to enter the length of your RV to select an adequate parking site. Sites are spacious and within a lovely Cottonwood Gallery. The birds are amazing in June and you can walk your dog along the campground roads for at least a mile. Moose are not uncommon, although don’t mess with Mama if she has a baby with her.
One loop has electrical hookups. Some loops allow generators. Some prohibit them. A single dump station was available by reservation only on the entrance road.

First Time Here!
Great campground near everthing in the Tetons. Stayed in generator section, quiet and peaceful. Sites are well spread out. We were in B113. Lots of room, across from the bathroom.

Stayed 4 nights... thankfully we were able to get a site to use our generator.... very cold mornings and nights needing heater...34°... most sites have no hookups and don't allow generators... close to Jackson Hole, Moose, Mormon row, and Jenny lake...rest rooms at each loop... did not see showers... dump stations at entrance

Spent a Friday night here in May while at Teton. Roads are well paved and accessible. Electric only sites that are well spaced (not all sites are 40' coach friendly). Dump and fresh water at exit. Close to Jackson Hole and it's inside the national park. Very reasonable for an expensive spot like JH. Also, it is no longer first come first serve, you have to reserve on recreation.gov. Not sure if that was just during 'vidpocolypse or will remain. Check out our travel blog: http://triplelacres.com/Lillback1/

First thing to address is the roads. They are now AMAZING. All of them have been newly asphalted as well as all the sites. Even the parking spots for the tent sites are asphalt. There is only 1 electric loop and 2 generator loops. All others are no generator ( but you can use solar). ALL SITES ARE FIRST COME FIRST SERVE. The early bird gets the worm. We got there at 7am and were 34 in line. Office opens at 8. 5 people workedthe line and we had a site by 9:30. Campground is sagebrush and trees with shade and a decent ammount of space between sites. Bathrooms were clean but no showers. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Loved our stay in early Sept. Had a couple female moose hanging around between us and the river. Next morning 1 of the 3 big bulls (pic above) found the ladies behind our camper. Our location was perfect for visiting Jackson and Jenny Lakes.

We will be back
Gros Ventre is awesome! The staff is polite and on top of it. We decided to stay in the non generator side. It was extremely comfortable. Lots of room around each site. No hookups but we can dry camp anywhere. Walked to the river nightly and saw deer and moose. We will be back.

Spent a few weeks in September-October. Beautiful campground, great hosts, moose heaven. It’s not luxurious but hey it’s camping. Will be going back in September again.

Large Sites in beautiful setting - excellent staff - no showers and no reservations ... first come first served. A few sites for big rigs with electric only. A loop for generators and large areas for primitive. Cleanest campground I’ve ever been to. Was able to get our satellite and once in awhile some cell service. If you want a camping experience, fire pit and all, this is your place. If you want full services and cramped spaces go elsewhere. In fact that’s OK with all of us that love this place.

Hard To Get Electric Site!!!!
You have to be in line by 7:30 then there is only a hand full of people checking out. No ranger to go see if people are checking out til about 10:30. Then a portion of those expired re-up for more nights. So we wasted half our day u til we finally saw we weren’t getting a site. We will NOT come here again! We should have stayed in Glacier park longer or Yellowstone. At both of those it’s first come first serve not show up put your name on a list and sit...........

Great place for dry camping. Bathrooms accessible. Handled 30' travel trailer fine. Staff friendly. Not too hot in Summer for dog to be left alone while in Tetons, especially in mornings.

Beautiful But All Access Pass Not Accept
I echo most of what is already said. Beautiful, convenient but they said All Access pass not accepted even though indicated as so on the outside board. Senior pass accepted.

I liked the location here because it’s in between the park but also a quick drive from Jackson. There’s a ton of wildlife along the road to get to it too! I saw some pronghorn and moose in the evenings when I was here.
Bathrooms were fine and sites are well kept. There are food lockers to store food in at each site. Solid Spot!

BEAUTIFUL! We have a 45 foot 5'er so it is difficult for us to get into many National and State parks. The folks at Gros Ventre were so very helpful in finding a spot for us that worked.
I wish they would remove the large logs that are permanently attached at the back of the sites to give them more sites that could accommodate larger rigs without damaging the vegetation that is growing all around.
There are no showers at this campground so if you are trying to conserve your water and/or manage your gray tank you can drive to one of the other campgrounds within the park to use the pay showers.
There are no reservations in this park, but no one was turned away while we were there. They tried to work with everyone to find a spot that would work.
We would definitely camp here again. I gave it a 4 star because there is no water at any of the sites and electric is only available at a few sites. Water and electric at all sites with showers at the campground would be 5 star.

Very nice peaceful campground. We had never been to the area before so had no idea what to expect. All the camping in JACKSON hole is very expensive and "in town" camping is not our thing. The hosts were great! Very helpful and courteous. Great park for walking the dogs. Convenient to all the Tetons have to offer and JACKSON hole. Make sure you visit the restaurant at moose and get their pizza! Delicious.

Good Spot For Us
We got here about 1030 am on a Friday and we're able to get spot for two nights with electric...staff helped us with bits of information on the Teton's ...got senior pass and paid about $14 a night...Road that is best way in is being repaired so had to take detour...bathrooms were clean and dump out and clean drinking water on way out...in all national parks your going for the park not camp sites...

First come, First serve- NO RESERVATIONS!! It's nice if you can get in, but in summer everything in the Tetons tends to be full by noon!! Especially around weekends. No campgrounds take reservations up here- very disappointing. There are several lodges/ rv type parks that have reservations, but they tend to be booked solid because everyone wants reservations to depend on. GOOD LUCK

If you like large sites, great landscape, close to the Tetons. I loved it, great price. Saw a magnificent bull moose at 50 yards while walking in the campground. Bring your bikes.

Camp ground is in bad bad need of road & site maintenance ,large pot holes everywhere . I thought I was going to damage my RV
Camp sites were very un level.
Doesn't look like anything has been done sense it was built years ago

Good Stop OutsideYellowstone
Large sites that accommodate tenters and include metal lockers for food. Also late sites for Rv's. All have fire pits and picnictablesClose to 400 sites, so no one is turned away. Beautiful drives from camp to more isolated areas and amazing Teton views. Dump station here.
