1 Jenny Lake Campground
Found at the heart of Grand Teton National Park, the Jenny Lake Campground contains some of the most popular campsites within the park and ranks as one of the best campgrounds in Wyoming. The campground is operated by the Grand Teton Lodge Company, and it’s not just the supreme scenery of the adjacent Jenny Lake and Teton Range horizon that makes it so popular, it’s the central location that draws a crowd.
All 59 sites at the Jenny Lake Campground, including the ten hiker/biker-only campsites, accommodate tent-camping only, and each share access to nearby flushing toilets and potable water. Available only on a first-come, first-served basis, Jenny Lake Campground typically fills up before 9am. Grab your spot early, though, and reserve it for up to 14 days at a time, and one of the best seats in the house for admiring the Teton Range can be yours to spend the night.
