We had some fun hikes at this area, and it was close to Jackson Lake lodge. The views from the lakeside trails were some of our best photos on the trip.

Stayed in a cabin and it was nice. As it was fall, and it got down below freezing each night, the heater worked hard to keep us warm. Need to remember to bring warm clothes for the cabin, slippers for cold feet, and such. Lovely location.

We stopped here only briefly but the village offers a good store and visitor centre. It also has a great marina for water-based activities. We'd certainly consider using the village if we had the relevant craft. Tours are available from here. The store at the marina has a good range of quality products and souvenirs. But the viewpoint alone is... More

to pretty views across the lake. The visitor center is nice and features Indian/Native American art. They also have some locally made jewelry for sale.

Hermitage Point Trailhead starts from Colter Bay parking lot. It consists of a network of trails that go by Jackson Lake, Swan Lake and Heron Lake. Nice walk for a couple of hours or for longer if you are not in a hurry.

We stayed in a RV pullthrough site in loop A just behind the grocery and laundry buildings. It was a nice site and would have been a 5 star for all the amenities and activities but for 2 things. They charge $4.25 for a shower which is by far the most expensive fee we've ever seen in our camping travels... More

I led a group of 39 Scouts and leaders up the GTNP and we used Colter Bay as our anchor point for the trip. We stayed at two paces in the village and ate at both dining areas. So here is a quick review of Colter Bay Village. 1. Campgrounds: we used the group site where each site could have... More

Tent camped 2 nights at Colter Bay Campground with our kids (9 and 7). The bathrooms were pretty good. The shower facilities were moderately mildewed - and if cleaner I would have given 5 instead of 4. We had a close encounter with a mule deer who was probably the rightful inhabitant of our site. We took a nice walk... More

Colter Bay employees don't seem to strive to please the customer!! We arrived late in the day and wanted to use their water activities;it was late in the day and only 1 hour before closing yet they still wanted to charge the 2 hour minimum! We walked out. As we left, we saw a different watercraft that had an hourly... More
