Grand Tetons Coulter Bay Village RV Park ?

We are making a trip to Coulter Bay Village and RV Park from North Carolina this summer. We would like to see images of the RV park itself taken from people who have stayed there. Along with thier impressions of the Village and RV park. There are a lot of images of the place on line , but very few show the camp sites themselevs. Thank you in advance for any help on this .

Now these are new to me and are just what I was looking for. Now all I need is opions of the place. Sort of reviews. I have read the reviews on here, but there are not very many.
Still you link has what I was looking for. Thank you so much.

This is our first trip west of the Mississippi camping and excited we are . I have been to WY and CO at times working but never to camp and enjoy the lands.

The campground is excellent, although some sites are tight, especially for a big rig. The area is incredible, can't get enough of it.

We stayed there ~5 years ago in a 40' MH. Getting in and out wasa bit tight but I'm not as uptight about branches touching my coach as are some. You simply can't beat the location if you want to spend time seeing Teton NP. Nothing else comes close IMO.

Tim,

If I might be so bold as to suggest you also look here, One more place you may enjoy would likely be the San Juan's in SouthWest Colorado - while not a National Park it is Just amazing.

Careful, there are two Colter Bay camping options.

The campground itself, which is first come first serve with no hookups, and the RV park which is full hookups and by reservations.

Most online photos show the campground. It was confusing to us when researching.

We’re booked at the RV park for 5 days this June.

We both stopped working this past year and now want to use or new 2670 Grand Design and travel a bit out West and North East .
While we have good health we want to get in as much as we can. We hope to stay in good health for a long time so we can enjoy this great country we have . We have always had short trips a week or two at most and only in the South East. Work kept us tied down. Now all we need is a good house sitter and away we will go. We really are excited and ready to go. There is so much to see and do in this land. Mind Boggling really.

Thank you for your extra links. They will come in to play with many others. First we hit the Tetons because my parents went on many trips out there and raved about the Tetons. If my father was talking about it ( BEING SOMETHING TO SEE ) then they really must be. He went all around the world much as I have and if he raves about a place it is somewhere I have to see . That and so many other places I want to see.


Jim T

By the way the 2nd link has some really great images. WOW.

Thanks

I get it - We watched the Granddaughters while the DIL did - https://www.google.com/search?q=teto...w=1536&bih=760 - the teton Crest Trail - for a week - was Extreme - but she is Amazing and Loved it - all Girls Hike team - not my style but think that's why they love Colorado.

Tetons are Amazing - after that Maybe Glacier - but Colorado and Marron Bells - and the San Juan's/Alpine Loop/Ouray/Telluride/Silverton will take your Breath away - Good Boots - Layers - Floppy Hat - Sunglasses and sunscreen - Breathable rain Gear are all critical.

Just to keep you going.........

Thank you for the informational tips. We have a 30ft TT with 2 slides.
I hope to fit just about anywhere we go. Although I will look for tree limbs and such. Would hate to replace one of the AC units up top .
