The Great Outdoors

When you book an RV in Teton County, Wyoming, you’ll get access to two of America’s most exquisite national parks, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park. Separated by the scenic John D. Rockefeller Memorial Highway, the two parks form one of the largest protected areas in the lower 48 states.You might choose to start your motorhome camping adventure at Grand Teton National Park’s Jenny Lake. This is probably the most popular area for fishing, kayaking, and birdwatching, with many day-trippers from Jackson coming to enjoy its relatively easy trails and expansive scenery. Those looking for a more rugged experience can make their way up Cascade Canyon to the west of Jenny Lake. Taking this route will take you into the more primitive sections of the park and away from the crowds.Another option is to go north to the West Thumb section of Yellowstone Lake, inside Yellowstone National Park. There you’ll find the largest geyser basin in the Yellowstone Lake region filled with iridescent pools and sulfur-smoking fumaroles. You could also rent a kayak to explore the shores of the Thumb, which is a bit easier to navigate than the more expansive section of the lake a little farther east.If the parks are too crowded for your taste or you’re just looking for something a little different, there’s the National Elk Refuge just north of Jackson, a nearly 25,000-acre habitat set aside to protect the world’s largest elk herd. The herd is relatively sparse during the summer months, as most of the elk migrate into Teton and Yellowstone National Park, but in the winter, sleigh rides through the refuge give tourists an up-close view of the majestic animals. You could also take the road through the refuge to ascend Curtis Canyon and get some of the best views overlooking the Jackson Hole Valley.

Exploring the City

Lizard Creek Campground is inside Grand Teton National Park, so you won’t find any services close to the RV campground; the nearest town is Jackson, over an hour's drive to the south. While getting there can be a bit of a hassle, Jackson is one of the most interesting towns in America and well worth a visit when you’re camping in an RV in the area.You can start your tour of the Jackson by visiting the town square, a small park at the center of town with spectacular entrances framed with arches made from elk antlers. It’s a great spot for a picnic, and most of the good shopping is just steps away. Jackson is also home to a plethora of excellent art galleries, with many of the best Western artists showcasing their work here.If you’re more of a history buff than a shopper, check out the Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum. Exhibits focus on Native American history along with informative displays about how Yellowstone Park was created in the latter half of the 19th century. It’s not a particularly large museum and can easily be toured in an hour or less.Those needing a relaxing drink after a day in the park will have no shortage of options when camping in an RV near Jackson. A craft brewery, micro-distillery, and winery can all be found within a short drive. Pick up a bottle or two, and you’ll surely be a hit back at the campground.If you’re motorhome camping in Jackson during the summer, don’t miss the famed Jackson Hole rodeo. There are multiple shows every week with events like bronco riding, barrel racing, and roping – a fun time for the whole family. If you’re feeling brave, you can even take a ride on one of the mechanical bulls; see if you can hold on for eight seconds.

Headed off-the-grid? Make sure you have a portable RV generator and know how to use it. Outdoorsy community member Mike Jackson shows you how.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
