Lizard Creek Campground - New For 2021: All Campsites Reservations Only
New For 2021: All Campsites Reservations Only
Starting in 2021 all sites in the Signal Mountain and Lizard Creek Campgrounds will be available by reservations only through the www.recreation.gov website. Campers wishing to reserve a campsite at the Signal Mountain or Lizard Creek Campgrounds will be able to do so by visiting www.recreation.gov. Reservations are available on a rolling six-month basis (6 months in advance of your arrival date).
Starting in 2021 first-come, first-served campsites will no longer be available in Grand Teton National park and all campsites will be occupied by reservation only. Reservations will only be available through Recreation.gov and will not be available through Signal Mountain Lodge via, phone, email, in-person or at the campgrounds.
Campsite reservations are expected to fill quickly, and visitors are strongly encouraged to plan ahead. Campers must create an account on the Recreation.gov website prior to be able to make campground reservations. Those who already have an account are encouraged to confirm their login and password information in advance.

This new reservation system is in direct response to years of public requests for a reservation system in the park’s campgrounds. This system is being implemented as a collaborative effort between the National Park Service and park concessioners. As we move to this new system in our campgrounds we are confident it will improve visitor services.

Overview The Lizard Creek Campground is located in the northern portion of Grand Teton National Park (GTNP) and provides a convenient basecamp for campers taking day trips to both Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. This 60-site campground sits on the northern shore of Jackson Lake and offers access to the lake waters and views of the northern Teton Mountain Range. The area is frequented by various park wildlife, large and small as well as a variety of bird species. This Campground is normally one of the last campgrounds to open and first to close for the season in the park and can often see quickly changing weather patterns. The Lizard Creek Campground provides the perfect location for visitors to GTNP looking to avoid the crowds and who don’t need more than the basic amenities..
Facilities The campground offers tent camping and pull-in/back-in sites for RVs or trailers up to 30ft. Nearly half of the sites are walk-in tent sites which provide for a more uniquely private and dispersed camping experience than found at other campgrounds in GTNP. The facility is equipped with three conveniently located comfort stations which provide flush toilets and camper sinks. Potable water can be found dispersed regularly throughout the campground. All sites have picnic tables, fire rings and bear-proof food storage boxes. Site parking pads, areas for tents and distance from parking pad to campsites can vary greatly in size. When making a reservation please utilize site photographs and dimensions from the recreation.gov website to ensure a proper fit for your recreational vehicle and party. The campground provides trash collection and recycling receptacles. Campers can find ice and firewood for purchase at the campground office.
The maximum stay permitted at Signal Mountain Campground is 14 nights, and the maximum cumulative stay between all park campgrounds is 30 nights.
A maximum of 2 campsites can be reserved per customer per night.
A maximum sliding window of up to 7 days can be reserved beyond the 6 month rolling window.
Day-of reservations are allowed at this campsite through recreation.gov, but not on a first-come, first-served basis at the campground itself.
This is bear country! Food and bear attractants must not be left unattended at any time (ie, coolers, trash, beverage containers, cooking utensils, health and beauty aids, etc.). All food or attractants must be stored in a hard-sided vehicle or in your campsite’s provided bear-proof storage box when not being consumed or prepared.
Pets cannot be left unattended and are always required to be under control, and on a six-foot leash. Dog runners and pens are not allowed. All pet food and bowls must be treated as a bear attractant and must be properly stored and cannot be left unattended. Please visit the National Park Service website for additional information: https://www.nps.gov/grte/planyourvisit/pets.htm
Quiet hours are strictly enforced from 10:00pm to 6:00am.
The maximum length for a trailer or RV is 30 feet. Parking pad dimensions vary greatly at our campgrounds. Please use care when making a reservation to ensure that the site you are reserving will accommodate your equipment.
Generators are permitted between the hours of 8:00am and 8:00pm and cannot be left unattended. Please note, generators are only permitted in the first loop of the campground (sites 48-63).
Maximum of one vehicle per site allowed.
Maximum of two tents per site allowed.
Maximum of six occupants per site. This rule is strictly enforced as we are a smaller campground. If you desire to reserve a campsite that will accommodate larger groups or gatherings of more than 6 people, please explore options at other campgrounds in the area.
Checkout time is by 11:00am. Check-in time begins at 12:00 noon.
Fires may not be left unattended and must be contained within the provided fire ring. Fires may be prohibited based upon local restrictions during seasons with elevated fire danger. Any current fire restrictions must be followed.
Only dead and downed wood may be collected. Chainsaws are prohibited.
Parking dimensions vary widely at this campground. Please take care when making reservations to ensure that the site you are reserving will accommodate your equipment. Parking is allowed only in designated parking areas or site pads. Moving barrier logs is prohibited. All vehicles must fit completely on parking pads. Vehicles protruding into roadway will not be accepted.
If travelling with a trailer or 5th wheel and the combined length of the towing vehicle and trailer/5th wheel is greater than the length of the driveway, the trailer/5th wheel will have to be disconnected in order to fit in the campsite. In these instances, campers must reserve a "Double Driveway" parking spot or a driveway wide enough to accommodate both the trailer and the vehicle.
All sites must be left in a clean and welcoming state for the incoming campers with all fires put “dead-out” and fire rings free of bear attractants.
