Where to Stay in Grand Teton National Park

 

WHERE TO STAY IN GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK
(WITH PRICES FOR EVERY BUDGET)

 

Stay at either Jenny Lake Lodge, Jackson Lake Lodge, or Signal Mountain Lodge. These are the best lodges to stay in Grand Teton National Park.

If you are on a budget, then stay at one of the seven campgrounds located within the park. My favorite campgrounds are either Jenny Lake Campground or Lizard Creek Campground.

Here is a my guide to help you decide where to stay in Grand Teton National Park.

 

 

BEST LODGES TO STAY IN GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK

 

If you are planning on visiting Grand Teton National Park, then my recommendation is to stay at one of the lodges located inside the National Park.

My top choice of where to stay in Grand Teton, is Jenny Lake Lodge, followed by Jackson Lake Lodge, and then Signal Mountain Lodge.

JENNY LAKE LODGE – 

THE BEST PLACE TO STAY IN GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK

 

If it is within your budget, then hands down, stay at Jenny Lake Lodge in Grand Teton National Park.

Jenny Lake Lodge is by far my favorite place to stay when I am visiting Grand Teton National Park. It is located right in the middle of the park.

Accommodations are elegant and you can choose from a duplex cabin, freestanding cabin (my recommendation!), suite cabin and deluxe suite cabin.

Now, if you have stayed at any of the lodges in National Parks, then you know that the accommodations are rustic, which is part of the experience, in my opinion.

Service at Jenny Lake Lodge is top notch. All the staff is always very attentive and accommodating.

Make sure to check out their Signature Stay Package that includes breakfast and dinner, complimentary horseback riding, bike rentals, and wine tasting.

The price is steep at $835 per night, but it is all worth it.  Now, if you decide to stay at Jenny Lake Lodge, make sure to reserve your cabin well in advance (I am not joking! Make sure to reserve your room at least a year in advance).

 

 

I need to mention that Jenny Lake Lodge is a perfect starting point of many of my favorite hikes in Grand Teton National Park.

I am recommending that you check out Jenny Lake Loop Trail. It is  a beautiful and easy hike that meanders along the shores of Jenny Lake with the Teton Range reflecting in the waters of Jenny Lake. Also, make sure to hike to Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point. This trail starts on the west shore of Jenny Lake and you can take a shuttle across the lake.

But, hands down, my top rated trail is the one that you can start from Jenny Lake and hike along the shores of String Lake, Leigh Lake and then go to Beaver and Trapper Lakes!

JACKSON LAKE LODGE – 

THE BEST HOTEL IN GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK

 

Jackson Lake Lodge is my second choice when staying in Grand Teton National Park.

At Jackson Lake Lodge, you have a choice of either getting a cottage or a room at the lodge. My recommendation is to get a room at the lodge. But, no matter what, get an accommodation with a mountain view. It makes a huge difference. You will love it because the views are off the charts.

The cottages have small patios and the rooms at the lodge have balconies with a couple of chairs and a table. I think that nothing beats sitting on a patio and watching a sunset or a sunrise.

I would say that the rooms are fairly simple, but comfortable and clean. The main lobby is a great place to hang out and have a cup of coffee and enjoy the views.

Prices at Jackson Lake Lodge start at $356 per night and go up depending on what type of accommodations you are going to select. Reservations well in advance are highly recommended.

 

 

First of all, Jackson Lake Lodge is a perfect location for some of the best hikes in Grand Teton National Park. Two of my favorite hikes start right by Jackson Lake Lodge: Jackson Lake Lakeshore Trail, and Hermitage Point Trail. The views of the Teton Mountains on these trails are just breathtaking!

Second, Jackson Lake Lodge is fairly close to my favorite photography location in Grand Teton National Park: Oxbow Bend Turnout.

And finally, I have to ask: do you like fishing?

Because, Grand Teton National Park is a fishing heaven! And some of the best fishing spots in Grand Teton National Park are located next to Jackson Lake Lodge, specifically Jackson Lake Dam and Snake River.

SIGNAL MOUNTAIN LODGE – 

ANOTHER GOOD PLACE TO STAY IN GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK

 

Signal Mountain Lodge is another place that I like to stay at whenever I am visiting Grand Teton National Park. It sits right on the shore of Jackson Lake with the Teton Mountains in the background.

Signal Mountain Lodge offers different accommodations. You can choose from rustic cabins, or rooms at the lodge, or bungalows. My recommendation is to go with Lakefront Retreats. Specifically, make sure to select upper lakefronts with a balcony.

The prices per night start at about $400.

Now, these are comfortable but no frills kind of accommodations. First of all, what is important to me, is that they are clean, the beds are comfortable, and the water in the shower is hot.

What is nice is that each unit comes with a nicely equipped small kitchen area.

If you decide to stay at Signal Mountain Lodge, then make sure to drive (or hike) to Signal Mountain Summit. The views of the Teton Range are one of the best ones form the viewing platform at Signal Mountain Summit.

Signal Mountain Summit is the best location to see stunning sunsets in Grand Teton National Park. Now, make sure to start driving at least an hour before the sunset to secure the best viewing spot because it does get crowded. By the way, there are two parking lots, so head to the second parking lot, which is situated above the first one and offers better views.

Also, take a foldable chair and make sure to grab a blanket and a jacket as well, because even in the summer time, it gets pretty chilly in the evening.

 

 

BEST CAMPGROUNDS TO STAY IN GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK

A POPULAR CAMPGROUND TO STAY IN GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK

 

Gros Ventre Campground is probably one of the most popular campgrounds in Grand Teton National Park since it is one of the biggest campgrounds in Grand Teton National Park with over 300 sites.

The north side of the campground offers the best views of the Tetons.

But, to be honest the views from the south side with Gros Ventre River winding its way through the cottonwoods and blue spruce are just breathtaking.

JENNY LAKE CAMPGROUND – 

A CAMPGROUND THAT I RECOMMEND IN GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK

 

Jenny Lake Campground is my favorite campground in Grand Teton National Park.

First of all, Jenny Lake Campground is situated just a few hundred yards from the east shore of Jenny Lake and the views are pretty spectacular with Teewinot Mountain and Cascade Canyon across Jenny Lake.

If you decide to stay at Jenny Lake Campground, then make sure do some hiking around Jenny Lake. One of my favorite hikes is Jenny Lake Loop Trail.

Another hike that I am highly recommending, and it is one of the easy hikes in Grand Teton National Park, is located on the west side of Jenny Lake and leads to Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point. What is fun about this hike is that you can take a shuttle across the lake and then start your hike to Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point.

COLTER BAY CAMPGROUND AND RV PARK  –

BEST CAMPGROUND FOR FAMILIES IN GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK

 

Colter Bay Campground is a large campground situated right next to Colter Bay Village. I think it is the best campground for families since you have access to showers and laundry services (additional fees). There are several restaurants, a visitor center, and a few stores were you can replenish your supplies.

HEADWATERS CAMPGROUND – 

GREAT CAMPGROUND TO STAY IN GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK IF YOU ARE VISITING BOTH YELLOWSTONE AND GRAND TETON

INTREPID SCOUT’S POINTERS FOR WHERE TO STAY IN GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK

 

The bottom line – where to stay at Grand Teton National Park?

 

  • If you can splurge, then stay at Jenny Lake Lodge. If Jenny Lake Lodge is not within your budget, then, my recommendation is to stay at Jackson Lake Lodge.
  • If all fails and everything is already booked, then try Lexington At Jackson Hole. The rooms are clean and spacious and breakfast is included. The only drawback is that it is located downtown Jackson Hole and if you are like me, then you wan to escape the hustle and bustle.
  • If you are a camper, then my recommendation is to try Jenny Lake Campground. It is my favorite spot! If Jenny Lake Campground is reserved than take a look at Lizard Creek or Headwaters Campgrounds. They are great alternatives if you are visiting both Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.
