After boondocking at Yellowstone and Grand Teton, we were ready for full hookups and a few extra amenities. We pulled into Fireside Resort in Wilson, Wyoming; it was the perfect spot to kick back, relax, and explore the town of Jackson.
Here’s the breakdown:
Location: Wilson, Wyoming
GPS: 43.52052, -110.84185
Date/Temp: We camped at Fireside Resort during the first week of August. The weather was ideal with highs in the 80s and lows in the upper 40s.
Amenities: This park is beautiful – the landscaping is thoughtful and well maintained, the sites are level, and the facilities are very clean. Our site was shaded, private, and had full hookups. Fireside Resort offers great recycling options, as well. This is a huge perk for us, so often campgrounds (and communities) offer no recycling.
Wifi/Cell: Fireside offers fast, reliable wifi. We were able to stream movies, upload files, and surf the web without interruption. Our T-Mobile hotspot received 4G LTE, and our AT&T service received a few bars of 4G.
Errands/Grocery: Downtown Wilson is just two miles from Fireside. They offer a few small shops and a post office. If you have major grocery shopping to do, Jackson (5 miles from camp) has multiple grocers, gas stations, and a lot of tourist shopping.
Dog Friendly: Fireside Resort is dog friendly. The park offers free doggy-bags throughout the grounds and has small trash cans to throw away the used bags. Our grassy site was large enough to play fetch with River. The town of Jackson is very dog friendly. Many shops allow dogs to browse with their owners and most restaurants with outdoor seating allow dogs as well!
Entertainment: There’s so much to do within a few miles from the Resort. We really enjoyed exploring the town of Jackson. It’s a unique tourist town with some real charm and personality. The Grand Teton National Park is also nearby. We drove the scenic loop and snapped some great photos. If you don’t want to drive, there’s a walking path from Fireside Resort to multiple restaurants and bars.
