The biggest appeal was the fact that this is tent only campground, so no RV noise –ever! If visiting Tetons again, and staying in the campground I would most definitely stay at Jenny Lake even though the amenities are very modest. If you are not willing to deal with that this campground probably is not for you. Overall most campers... More

Absolutely loved this campground. Right near the Tetons, in walking distance of Jenny Lake and near great hiking trails. You’ll need to come early to secure a spot because it’s very popular. We arrived at 8am and were lucky to still be able to choose between a couple of sites. The camp sites are very large and rustic.

We got to Jenny Lake at 11AM and I ran to the campground host hoping to secure a spot in this 50-something sites tent-only place. He said 'you are here on a very good day'! We could even choose! We took his recommendation and settled at Site 39 that faces the park road but is blocked from camp loop road... More

We used this campground as a jumping off place to leave our car at the Leigh/String Lake trailhead for hiking the Teton Crest Trail. Nice campground - if you get their early enough (say, 8AM) you can be a bit choosy and get a sight with a little privacy. Many have good vies of the mountains. There is a great... More

If you are looking for supreme views of the Grand Tetons, a quiet campground atmosphere, and a myriad of trails "on your doorstep", then this is the perfect place for you! We have come back to this campground 3 out of the last 5 years, and we will continue to do so simply because of this opportunity to become "unplugged"... More

When I arrived in the Tetons, my plan was to stay at Jenny Lake (tent only) campground.. however, after driving through there were very very few spots with privacy.. mostly, the sites were either out in the open (okay, if that's your thing) or right next to the next camper without anything in between.. not only could you hear the...

This is an excellent campground for people looking to stay in the Tetons near great hiking trails. The only hard thing is that there are no reservations so you must come early and find a spot. The sites are large and rustic. We had a a great experience for the three nights we stayed here in late August.

Four of us (two adults and two kids aged 7 & 10) stayed here for three nights recently and absolutely loved this place. It is in a beautiful setting with large sites that sit back from the road. It is one of the quietest campgrounds we have ever visited. The only negative is the bathroom situation which requires 50+ sites... More

I like staying at Jenny Lake because it is a small, intimate campground centrally located. I like being able to catch the first boat across Jenny Lake at 7am without having to wake up crazy early. Plus, you're a two hour drive north to Old Faithful (not just the Yellowstone Entrance). Heed all the warnings about the first-com, first served... More

We arrived around 10.30am in late May on a Friday and managed to get a site. There were a few sites still available when we turned up. We managed to get a site that wasn't too far from the bathroom and not that close - so it was perfect for us. Sites are not the biggest but some do have... More
