Additional campgrounds move to Recreation.gov for the 2022 season

MOOSE, Wyo. —Visitors who plan to camp in Grand Teton National Park will now be able to reserve campsites at all park campgrounds using an in advance reservation system on Recreation.gov.

All remaining campgrounds in the park will transition to the website for the 2022 summer season.

The Colter Bay RV Park and Tent Village, as well as Headwaters Campground and RV Park, which were previously reservable through Grand Teton Lodge Company, are moving to Recreation.gov. These locations, along with Colter Bay, Gros Ventre, Jenny Lake, Lizard Creek and Signal Mountain Campgrounds, will be available for booking on a six-month rolling basis. While a limited number of sites will be held back at the Colter Bay and Gros Ventre Campgrounds for reservation on a 14-day rolling basis, reservations are expected to fill quickly, and visitors are strongly encouraged to plan ahead. Park campgrounds will no longer be reservable through local campground call centers or websites.

A collaborative effort between the National Park Service, Grand Teton Lodge Company, Signal Mountain Lodge, and Recreation.gov was initiated in response to public requests for an advance reservation system at park campgrounds and launched last year with a portion of the campgrounds moving onto the platform for the 2021 summer season. The introduction of a reservation system at busy park campgrounds in 2021 was deemed a success, improving the visitor experience by streamlining the camping process, significantly shortening lines and reducing wait times, alleviating associated traffic congestion, and giving visitors the ability to plan ahead with confidence, knowing they would have a place to stay upon arrival.

Campgrounds in Grand Teton National Park and John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway are operated by concessioners. Grand Teton Lodge Company operates Gros Ventre, Jenny Lake, and Colter Bay Campgrounds. Flagg Ranch Company operates Headwaters RV Park and Campground. Signal Mountain Lodge LLC operates Signal Mountain and Lizard Creek Campgrounds.
