We had a campsite at Gros Ventre but happened to be driving by Jenny Lake Campground at about 8:30 a.m., after some sunrise wildlife viewing, so we decided to see if there were any open sites. There was no line at this time ... and there were some open sites. We decided it was worth it to switch our camp and move to the Jenny Lake area. The campground is small - only around 50 sites, and is tent only. This made for a quiet, relaxing experience. We enjoyed our night here, and it was convenient being closer to the activities inside the National Park. We can recommend this campground, if there is space available when you arrive. We were not interested in lining up early in the morning to better our odds of getting a site. If that's what it took we were fine at Gros Ventre.

There is no debating that Jenny Lake is well located for most of the best hikes in Grand Teton and that the campsites at this location are more spacious and private than at the other campgrounds at the park. But, these positives are well outweighed by the check-in process and camphost (at least in August 2019) such that Signal Mountain is a preferable option. Here is how the inept check-in process works. To try and get a site, prepare to line up around 7 or 7:30am depending on the day of the week. At 8am, the camp host will appear. But, she will claim to have no clue how many spots are available even though current occupants have either paid for another night or they haven't and have either flipped their occupancy tag to open or they haven't. The camp host will then SLOWLY work her way through the line of cars, refusing to provide useful information to those trying to figure out if it is worth spending another hour in line. Around 9 o'clock, the camp host will magically know exactly how many spots she had from the get go, incidentally having carried just the right number camp spot tags with her all along. To those out of luck, the camp host will make a series of sem-snide remarks from which one might infer that she took pleasure in watching you needless wait in line for over an hour when she could have just counted the number of free spots in the campground, counted the number of cars in line, and told everyone who couldn't get a spot to turn around at 8am. But, hey, that would take a little brain power and thoughtfulness.... To sum it up, if you want to spend two hours in line to maybe get a spot at the modestly better Jenny Lake Campground, be my guest. Alternatively, in those two hours, you could go up the road a little bit, snag a site at Signal Mountain (potentially with a view of Jackson Lake), pitch your tent, and get to the trailhead. But, if your heart is really set on Jenny Lake, when you get there between 7 and 7:30, do yourself a favor and go walk around the campsite, count the sites with an "open" tag on them, count the number of cars in line, and rely on the camp host for nothing as she is either too lazy, inept, or power hungry to do her job well.

I have a book from 4 years ago that states Jenny Lake Campground charges 20.5 $ a night. Today it's 29 $. That's outrageous for a campground without showers, only one toilet block, and not even a soap dispenser. Some spots are nice, some are not at all private. And in September, although it's shoulder season, not peak tourist season, the campground was still full by 9 am on a friday... You're close to the lake yes, but it's not like you're camping BY the lake... I know spots in Australia or Canada where you're ON the lake, and it's half or even a third of the price... If you're gonna make me pay that much for a night, at least put some showers.

This was a very nice laid out campground in the spots are very spacious. There was potable water close to the sites but nowhere to wash your dishes. Not the end of the world but an inconvenience. The campground hosts were lovely And do a great job ensuring that everything in the camp is running smoothly. A little walk back to the lake and it is breathtaking. Saw a red fox near our site but it was a bear free experience For our stay. We would definitely stay here again on our next visit. It is tent camping only, so if you have an RV you cannot stay here. Great spot and a great stay!

Great views, relatively quiet, tent only, easy access to the trails. Sites are decent. Only down side are the tent ‘pads’ where you’re meant to pitch—Impossible to stake tent into them. Most people use rocks to anchor. That’s probably okay for car camping tents but backpack tents are another story! TIP ON GETTING A SITE: Don’t bother trying to get in line at 6 am hoping for a coveted site when it opens a 8. Three spots are held until 5 pm for handicap occupants. If none show, those sites are released to anyone who shows. You simply need to show up at 4:30 to get in line for that and in the days I was there those 3 sites were always available. You do need to vacate that site the next day BUT you get first choice on available spots before the people that started lining up at 6 am are let in. Camp hosts are delightful people!
