Camp at Lizard Creek Campground

Originally added by Kathleen Buenviaje

Camp steps from Jackson Lake hidden from the crowds of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park. Perfect central location for access to both parks.

This gem of a campground was discovered in desperation after all the campsites were booked at Yellowstone. There are 60 sites with relatively clean bathrooms. The sites are large with optimal privacy from your neighbors. If you're lucky enough you can even snag campsites steps from the lake. There are plenty of trees throughout the campground, with each site equipped with a picnic table, bear locker and fire pit with grill.

You can kayak/fish/swim with multiple lake access areas. If you're looking to explore Yellowstone and Grand Tetons, you can do both with this central location. This is bear country, so be mindful and aware.

If you end up going in the summer months, bring insect repellents. The mosquitos feast and are relentless. 

For updated details, learn more about the campground by calling 307-543-2831 or on nps.gov
