The Gros Ventre Campground in Grand Teton National Park offers shaded spots, epic wildlife viewing, and great views of the Teton Range.
Gros Ventre Campground
Moose and Bison are common in the campground. Our first camping trip to Grand Teton National Park we saw Great Horned Owls and their owlets in one of the campsites. It was amazing. This is one of our favorite places to view Grand Teton Wildlife.
One of the benefits of staying in the Gros Ventre Campground is being close to Mormon Row and Jackson Hole.
This campground is also close to the Gros Ventre River providing great wildlife viewing.
