Description

Colter Bay Campground is a wooded wonder on the shores of Jackson Lake. There’s plenty of roomy, reservable spots for RV’s, but tent campers are first-come, first-served.

Colter Bay Campground is a wooded wonder on the shores of Jackson Lake. There’s plenty of roomy, reservable spots for RV’s, but tent campers are first-come, first-served. We hear this shady, rustic campground rarely fills up, and spots are usually still available late into the afternoon. Hop on over to the visitors center from camp to plan your day’s excursions, or hit up the grocery store for afternoon ice cream. With fire pits, picnic tables, and nearby restrooms and pay showers, you’ll have all you need right inside the park to make the most of your Grand Teton adventure.

Jackson Lake shore is rocky, be sure to bring your shoes when you go to the beach!

This is hands down the most fun, beautiful, perfectly-placed campsight I have ever been to. Enjoyed my morning hike to the crystal clear water to take a freezing bath and was able to set up the most enjoyable hammock/tent/breakfast table in all the camping lands. I will be back very soon. Also cannot fail to mention that the bathroom facilities are great and proximity to Jackson is nice if you feel like braving the town.

Hipcamper Kellie

Take the path from the campground to the lake and enjoy your morning coffee with the sunrise.

Hipcamper Andrew

Bring bug spray during the summer, as the mosquitoes are giant and aggressive, but the views and adventure is worth it! I highly recommended renting a canoe or kayak for a few hours and visiting some of the many islands on Jackson Lake.

We were uncertain about the nightly temperatures here, because I remembered freezing as a child. So we stayed in their tent cabins, which have a built in wood burning stove. These were very nice and I would recommend them if cold nights are not your thing. Do keep in mind that once the fire goes out, that it will be cold, so still bring your warmest sleeping bags. The bathrooms were perfectly acceptable and had dishwashing sinks. Colter Bay Village has just about every convenience you could want. They have a post office, showers, laundry, grocery, and 2 restaurants...one casual and one fancier. Due to all the wildfires in the northwest, out of the 4 days we were there, we could only see the mountains for about 4 hours, unless we were hiking inside them such as Cascade Canyon. Highly recommend Cascade Canyon for hiking!
