This was my favourite campground on a three month camping and road trip around the west. Just outside Grand Teton national park it is so much friendlier and cheaper than other sites like Gros Ventre in the park a few kms away. The sites is small and right on the lake with lots of privacy at individual sites. There is a NF park host in the summer who keeps the facilities very clean , the drive in and out along the entrance road is worth the trip alone especially in the fall and there are great supplies, pizza and beer a few miles away at Moose. What more could you want for a chill time in the Tetons, cant recommend this little gem highly enough.
