We try to visit every year. Each CG has it's own pros & cons. Fishing Bridge is the only CG in the park that has power. If you've seen the map of the park, the roads basically make a large figure 8. If you stay at Canyon CG you'll be on the East side in the middle of that figure 8.

+1 on the Grand Teton NP. We came up from the south and stayed at the Jackson Hole KOA. Tiny CG, but literally right on the Snake River. The town of Jackson Hole was very cool as well. We were invited by a total stranger to stop in for the weekly rodeo, and we had a blast!

I lived in Jackson for some time. I really love that park as well. If time is possible, visiting both is a bonus treat.

great place

We spent only three nights at Mammath CG last month. Your $25 park entrance fee gets you 7 days. You can't get parking in any city that cheap. CG's have strict generator/noise rules, but we paid $20 a night. Elk strolling thru CG.
We dropped our 5er and explored by truck. Could move to another CG after a few nights to get to other side of the park. There was some major roadwork going on that had us parked for a few minutes.

Question about power. What if you do not want a generator? or is it essential when camping in NP's? How long can you get by with batteries? Thanks

You have to conserve and understand how much you use. Solar is the alternate answer to not using a generator, however even then it is essential you understand what your daily DC draw is so that you do not overly discharge the battery(s). The discovery of the 12-volt life is a fun adventure.

Read the links below and see if it something you are up for.

If you get a chance check out Cody. There is a rodeo every Saturday night during the summer. They have an old west town. I think it's just a cool little town but I'm bias since my Uncle and Aunt live there. Thermopolis and the hot springs there are something pretty cool also.

Welcome to the forum. You'll find a wealth of good info, answers, and general input in member responses. You can also find a virtual library of knowledge in the archive of previous threads. Just use the search feature and enter key words. Grab the popcorn and drink and settle in for an evening of reading.
