Weather was mild, but still below freezing on some nights and some snow. When I visited, there was very little snow on the ground and very little water in the late. Overall, this is a great campsite. I do not personally like full-hook-up sites simply because the proximity of other campers. My family normally use the dry camping campground, but it was not open at the time of my visit. Since I was alone and didn't have my family and dogs, I did not need all the space. This is a good campground with plenty of amenities when the season is open. This includes gas, convenient store, Colter Bay Store, laundry, and showers. The village itself has so much to offer and can easily be walked to, including walking to the water. Campsite were well maintained week and once visitors left, the crew was out raking things up for the next visitor. Bathrooms were clean and sparse, but average for national park campgrounds this old. Access is easy for small rigs up to large class A's. I saw an assortment of rigs on my visit and plenty of space to accommodate them. Sites are relatively level, but you will still need to use your leveling method. What suprised me the most was the mobil connectivity, but attributed this to no congestion. I imagine this will be much slower when the season is in full-swing. I had full signal and bandwidth with no need to augment the connection with an antenna or booster.Overall, great campground for a full-hook-up park. I would highly recommend. If you're looking for more space between site, try the dry campground right next to the park.

We spent our time riding bikes around the area, visiting the store for coffee and ice cream, the ranger station for junior ranger activities and the lake to walk each day. We went to Jackson two nights as it's not too far and all the Teton sites are within an hour or so of this campground. Despite have the worst site in the campground it was such a wonderful three nights and we wish we could have stayed longer. Hard to get into but well worth the effort and expense.

For “in your face” views, there aren’t many places like it. This RV park is super hard to get a reservation as it books early and stays full. We lucked into a cancellation and jumped all over it. You do not pick a site. They have your reservation and then tell you what site you have at arrival. Now you do have the option to line up at the crack of dawn and find out if anything comes available. There is also a FF campground next to this one that has no hook ups.This is RV only with full hookups. All sites are pull thru. We did not see anyone with issues as for fitting into their spot. There are some tight areas driving, but totally manageable.None of the sites are huge. Picnic table, but no fire pit. The campground is on a slope so most sites require leveling. At our site we were as high as we could get and still slightly low on one side. Also, I had to dig out around the water connection because it was so low to the ground. We had a potable water sign taped to the water valve. They had just gotten a water issue corrected. We had noticed potable water trucks were parked at the campground entrance. We also got a freeze warning and severe weather handout during our stay.We were a short walk to Jackson Lake, boat dock/rental, amphitheater and Colter Village. Plenty of amenities close by.As for cell service, none in the campground. But, you can get a signal in Colter Village.Would I stay again? Of course! Pricey - yes. But, you are in the park with hookups (which we were glad to have because of weather). You are in a great spot for getting to the southern part of the park and for making Yellowstone a doable day trip.

    Despite spotty/non-existent cell coverage and close neighbors, you camp in easy to pull-through full hookup sites in a nice forest setting. A few steps away is Jackson Lake and amazing Teton view. It is expensive but we will return as often as possible.

We loved the hikes close by. We could only receive and send texts thru cell service. The Wi-Fi was not near the campsites. The laundry was clean and the staff were friendly. There is a nice store on site with a coffee shop and gift shop. As well as outdoor activities to book like horseback riding or rafting.

The sites are well spaced out, but not all are very level. There is a nice grocery store right at the campground with lots of reasonably priced items. The only problem was spotty cell coverage. When we stayed there 3 years ago our Verizon hot spot worked pretty well, although a little slow. This time, even though it showed 4 or 5 bars, it did not work at all except for in the middle of the night. We work remotely and need internet to work, so we ended up working in the middle of the night a lot that week. We also worked at the campground laundromat and down by the marina where the wifi worked well. The wifi worked well at Jackson Lake Lodge also so sometimes we worked there. Next time I think we'll just plan to take the week off work and not worry about finding internet to get some work done.

Lots of trees, little reception, but that is only negative (and not necessarily a negative for true enjoyment of nature). Many, many things to do nearby, stores, restaurants, gas, propane and the list goes on. But the scenery is truly majestic! We actually experienced a grizzly walk right up to the front of our RV (we went inside for protection). Although the adrenaline was pumping, it was the memory of a lifetime to view it so close. Called at least a year in advance both times to ensure a spot. It's always full.

Each spot has picnic table, bear box, and fire pit. You arent very far from other campsites, which means practically no privacy but its great for socializing with neighbors. You have access to water and the flush toilet bathrooms are not far. They have a convenience store with groceries and camping gear. They had vegetarian frozen food options and a fresh vegan bakery option every day! There is access to a couple walking trails which all have great views of the tetons. Also near the trails is a marina. you have the option to rent kayaks or canoes, which is awesome!At&t cell service is the only thing that was lacking. I managed to get a couple bars on one of the trails by the lake, but not much. 5 miles down the road there is a lodge with full signal and wifi if you need it. You can pay for laundry or showers here too if need be. I didnt use them however so im not sure how clean they were.Quietness really depends on your campsite neighbors. I didnt have any problems with people being loud late at night.Easy to find. Great access to both the grand tetons and yellowstone.

Sites are a little close, but the diagonal layout means you aren't right next to your neighbors when you are outside. Lots of trees for shade and a little privacy. Two problems. (1) Because of bears, grills and just about everything else must be packed away. However, there are no bear boxes, which means the grill has to go in your car or trailer when not being used. (2) The campground is very clean and garbage is picked up daily at about 7:30 a.m. by a very noisy garbage truck. We didn't appreciate the early wake-up. There are full hook-ups, which we appreciated. Our next door neighbor for the stay, though, did not use the electric hook-up and instead ran their generator. One of the best things about full hook-ups is that you don't have to listen to generators and can enjoy the outdoor ambiance. So we lost out on that. We paid for an extra night because we knew we wouldn't be out by 11 a.m. As we left, the ranger gave us a hard time about reserving it for that night and not using it. Since we paid for it, we didn't feel that was called for. Aside from these issues, it was the best laid-out RV Park we've stayed in and there is so much to do right at the campground as well as in the surrounding National Parks. Restaurant, marina, general store, gift shop, laundry, beach, and other facilities are all in a semi circle around the campground, so when you are in the campground you wouldn't even know they were there and are not bothered by the congestion they cause.

It is pretty compact and the sites are not big, so that is the trade-off for being in the park...and it is pricey BUT we loved it. We had extremely limited Verizon. We loved the campground feel and being able to walk over to the lake. We were surprised to find that you can not have any type of campfire in the RV park, there are some community fire pits and picnic tables under the trees between the lake and the campground though. We also loved having our kayak here as it was easy to walk it over and enter the water.

The sites are not huge, but the abundance of pine trees gave the park a natural feeling. Be sure to walk or drive down to Jackson Lake, just beyond the trees of the Colter Bay park, to see the massive mountains rising over the waters of the lake. You can rent boats at the marina.Even though there is only a central shower house for the RV park and campground, we found it to be clean and accessible. You do have to pay for showers. The laundry facilities worked well, and my sons appreciated the WiFi available there.The park can fill quickly, so book early. Don't just drive through the Tetons, stay on site and give yourself plenty of time to soak in all of the scenery.

There is a walk-in campground which was still accepting campers at 2pm mid week in July. There is also a Visitor Center, boat dock with rentals, 2 restaurants, an RV park, a traditional cabin area and a "tent village". We stayed in a "lean to" which is a tent with 2 log walls and 2 canvas walls. You share a wall with another site but since they are facing opposite directions you feel like you have privacy. If possible try to get a tent facing away from the inside of the campground.The staff at Colter Bay is attentive, professional and knowledgeable. There are roll-away beds available for rent for those who don't want to sleep on the squeaky single beds attached to the log walls.Each site has it's own picnic table, bear locker and fire grate.The tents do look rather run down. I noted the run down look in my review to Colter Bay and was sent a very friendly reply acknowledging the need to spruce up and that there are plans in place to do so in the near future. There are ground squirrels everywhere so if you have a thing about rodents entering your tent don't camp here. We saw a Red Fox hunt one down while eating breakfast which was kinda satisfying- those squirrels are BOLD.Depending on who is staying it can get pretty loud. WiFi only available at the restaurant near the campground. You don't have to buy anything to gain access which was super nice of them.
