Reservations for Grand Teton National Park campgrounds now centralized

You’ll be able to access one-stop shopping for all John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway and Grand Teton National Park campgrounds in 2022, as reservations are now centralized on Recreation.gov.

Previously online reservations were handled by individual concessionaires. The Colter Bay RV Park and Tent Village, as well as Headwaters Campground and RV Park, were previously reservable through Grand Teton Lodge Company, 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 on Recreation.gov.

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. 

The collaboration effort between the National Park Service, Grand Teton Lodge Company and Signal Mountain Lodge 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.
