Gros Ventre Campground 1

One of the most peaceful and beautiful campsites I have ever seen is right outside the town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming in Grand Teton National Park. Gros Ventre Campground (pronounced: ˈgrō-ˌvänt) is set along a serene river where Moose roam and play among the aspen and cottonwood trees. I wanted to share this special spot with you. I just visited the Gros Ventre Campground this past month while the colors were in full bloom. And we were thrilled to meet some new Airstreamer friends!

Location

Gros Ventre is located in Grand Teton National Park, 11.5 miles southeast of Moose, Wyoming, near the town of Jackson. Go south on Highway 89 out of Moose, turn on the Gros Ventre/Kelly turnoff and proceed to the campground entrance four miles ahead.

GPS: 43.616, -110.667
