Free Camping at Grand Teton National Park

Free Camping at Grand Teton National Park

After leaving Yellowstone, we drove 40 miles south to Moose, Wyoming. Thanks to Campendium, we were able to find tons of free camping with beautiful views of the Grand Tetons.

Here’s the Breakdown

Location: Moose, WY

GPS:43.7645, -110.5558

Date/Temp: We camped in the Bridger-Teton National Forest for four nights. The days were sunny and dry, reaching 90 degrees; the lows dipped down into the 30s.


Amenities: This is a primitive campsite, offering no amenities. We filled up our water at a gas station spigot inside the National Park. The boondocking site does provide a bear box for tent campers.

Noise: Our site was very quiet and tucked near the back of the grounds. Multiple tent campers passed through during our stay, but none of them were rowdy or loud.

Wifi/Cell: We received full bars of 3G T-Mobile service, and one bar of AT&T 3G. The cell service seemed throttled, this could be due to the nearby forest fires affecting the towers or being altered for emergency use.

Grocery/Errands: The town of Jackson is 20 miles south of the campsite. We drove there twice to go to the grocery store. Its a well populated tourist town and offers lots of shopping, but its all a bit overpriced.

Dog Friendly: The Bridger-Teton National Forest is dog friendly. Here, unlike the National Park, you’re allowed to hike with your dog. Our campsite was grassy and spacious – River’s ideal playing environment. 

Entertainment: The main attraction is Grand Teton National Park. It’s northern entrance is just a few miles away. We’ve been enjoying the National Forest so much, that we’ve yet to explore the National Park. We’ll make our way over there in the next few days!

My wife and I love your videos. We've not yet boondocked. We're wanting to visit that Teton/Yellowstone area for about a week with 2 additional adults - so 4 adults total. How and where do you to fill your water tank and dump for a stay like that? (I think the next thing on my list is to join one of those boondocking clubs.) Thanks for any info you have to share.
