Grand Teton National Park

Grand Teton National Park is immediately south of Yellowstone National Park.  It's known for its stunning mountain views across the Snake River.  It's also a great park for wildlife, including elk, bison, eagles, and bears.


Compared to Yellowstone, it's not as crowded and its easier to find a campsite and you don't need reservations.  That said, it's still a very popular park and prime campsites fill early.  We just missed the last spot at Jenny Lake but were very satisfied with a spot in the tent-only loop in the big campground at Colter Bay.  The campsites were reasonably big, with enough trees and vegetation to provide some privacy.
