Easy location with a beautiful view. Road is rough past the first set of sites. I stayed there with my two little kids and felt safe. Not a lot of shade, though..

“Beware of going up the mountain!!!!”

This was the perfect spot for us as we explored Grand Teton National Park. This campsite is approximately 45 minutes from Jackson, WY, 15 minutes from the Moose entrance to GTNP, and 40 minutes to the Moran entrance to GTNP. It had great views of the Teton Mountain Range, was relatively quiet, and conveniently located. There are two... more

The view of the Tetons was fabulous! Bison on the range we drove through. I’m not sure we will ever find a site that compares.

“Incredible Views”

Reviewed Aug 01, 2018

Overall Rating

Some of the best views of the mountain range from where I camped. Like a previous review said, “no pain, no gain.” The road is rough and washed out and if you want a good spot, you’ll have to drive up a few miles. It was a unforgettable experience seeing the mountain range from my spot. You’d be hard pressed to find a better view than ... more

“Great view but no pain no gain”

Reviewed Jun 15, 2018

Overall Rating

The camping sites are in the middle of the mountain that you need to overcome a lot of potholes on the washed road. I drove very slowly, 5 mph because worried my SUV and my travel trailer would be damaged. If your tow vehicle or travel trailer is old, I don’t recommend this place because the wheel parts will suffer a lot from the r... more

Road going up the hill was not too bad for our RV. Roads below had some muddy spots, and were rough. Found space 8 to be relatively flat. Had a beautiful red fox run through our site early the next morning. Picked nearby TV stations. Only negative I can think of is guy zooming down the rocky road like a bat out of hell past ... more

“Awesome views but rough road”

Reviewed Oct 04, 2017

Overall Rating

Great views of the Tetons from this spot. Plenty of spots that are up on a hill and give you a great opportunity to see the valley. It was a bit overcast when I was there and would still recommend it. Fire pit it designated spots. Very hilly road with some wash out spots that made it a interesting drive up. Should be fine even with... more

“Very nice boon-docking ”

Reviewed Sep 05, 2017

Overall Rating

For us this seemed like a much better option for boon docking than Upper Teton view. There are many sites which are designated but yet boon docking. The view is actually better here and more sites have view than Upper Teton view.

This was our first shot at boondocking and this spot will be hard to beat. Arrived late on a Wednesday afternoon and were able to find a spot up top in the "group" area. Clean, level and a view to die for. This group area was like a small community. My wife was comfortable with me leaving her alone when I went off hiking for hours.... more

“Perfect camping!”

Reviewed Jan 04, 2017

Overall Rating

This spot is wonderful for remote, dispersed camping. There is access to a small campground area at the bottom of the mountain, but the views at the top are well worth the drive. We visited in June and there were many great spots available for camping. The views of the Tetons are unmatched. Our camping neighbors were quiet and resp... more
