Camp at Fall Creek Falls

Fall Creek Falls - Search Nearby - Added by Eric Bennett

Amazing, low key camping spot with no crowds. It is easy to access and has amazing sunset and sunrise views. There is awesome kayaking and fishing nearby on the Snake River

Just an hour outside of Jackson Hole, this waterfall is very easy to access. This is also a great spot to camp overnight if you are heading to the Grand Tetons National Park from the West Coast.

Look for a sign at the turn out that says “Fall Creek Falls.” If you find yourself on the bridge over Snake River, you have missed the turn. Heading towards Jackson, look for the last righthand turn just before the bridge.

Because this is located in a National Forest, camping is perfectly legal and also free. Just be sure to camp about 200 ft. from the water.

If you are willing to get wet, you can wade out to one of the small islands and explore the base of the falls. To get to the bottom, you will have to climb down, starting at the small cave on the very left of the falls, and follow the stream down into to river.

Note that in the winter, this road can be closed, and it is not recommend to make the one-mile hike to the falls – the route is icy, slippery, and quite dangerous.

Fall Creek Falls Is AMAZING.

Fall Creek Falls is unbelievable!! One of the coolest waterfalls I've ever been to. Definitely worth a trip to see it. If you go, walk down the road a little bit until you can hike down the hill enough to get to the bottom of the falls for the best view!
