Exploring whether we can take the Tundra to Jenny Lake in Grand Teton. The Tundra is 18' but they say no cars over 14'... Saw a pic with a looong truck at a campsite.

Anyone bring their >14' truck and what was your experience? No issue or turned away?

I did the google map street view. and went around the campground. The sites may be large but the vehicle parking is small, controlled by strategically placed rocks and logs. From the images, might fit on certain sites IF you could put the back end over the log or rock that defines the parking space. The compact cars seem to fill almost all of the designated parking space.

Looks like they are set up for tent camping only. Yes my Tundra is 18' long also ~ so will strike Jenny off of our list. Boo

Thank you for checking. I used campsitephotos dot com, and without a car parked in the spot, it's difficult to gauge. Definitely some are long enough, and the ones with logs I could backup into... I'll check google maps. Didnt even think of that!

Do you tow or have a 5th wheel?

I am not giving up on Jenny Lake quite yet. [emoticon] I may have to call and see if the site length is the issue or perhaps they just don't want the type of people that drive long vehicles in their campground [emoticon] Kidding.

Maria, are you planning on visiting the Jenny Lake area, and/or trying to stay at the campground at Jenny Lake?

I think they might be worried about vehicle height not length.

The campground is for tent sites only and vehicles are limited to 8’ tall and 14’ long. What about Coulter Bay?
