Camping in the Tetons

Camping in the Tetons National Park can be confusing, with each campsite operating separately with its own procedures, fees and rules. At 19 feet, Moterra campervans fit into the ‘tent’ camping sites which offers you more flexibility in where you can stay. Even with this recommendation list, it can be difficult to negotiate the regulations around first come first serve sites while wrapping your mind around the best flow to maximize your time in the park. Why not let us take care of that for you? You can either purchase our 6 night 7 day itinerary, complete with camping reservations and reservations for our activities or fully customize your itinerary based on your interests.

Colter Bay

This bay serves as the perfect hub to camp right along the shores of Jackson Lake, and is therefore one of our favorite (and one of the most popular) campsites in the park. They have a small, well stocked grocery store, boat rentals, scenic floats and some short, worthwhile trails that leave directly from the campground. While your Moterra campervan fits into the tent campsites at Colter Bay, these cannot be pre-booked and are allocated on a first-come first-serve basis. If you are not planning on arriving to this campsite early in the day, we recommend pre-booking an RV campsite, which is a little more expensive, but guarantees you a space.

Gros Ventre

​Located along the banks of the Gros Ventre River (pronounced Gro Vont), this campground is known for attracting pronghorn antelope and moose. It is conveniently located roughly 20 minutes from Jackson and 20 to the Teton Park entrance, with stellar views of the Tetons. If you have not pre-booked your first nights stay, this is your best option for National Park run campground as it is often the last to fill. For more information, visit their website ​here.

Headwaters Campground at Flagg Ranch

Located between the Tetons and Yellowstone, this is a perfectly positioned camping spot for those hoping to launch into Yellowstone first. While not as visually spectacular as other campsites in the park, this camping spot makes the list because of its convenient amenities such as laundry, showers
