We stayed at the Virginian. It was centrally located and had long pull through sites. Pet friendly. It also had back in sites but you may be too long for those.

Thanks bgum. It seems one of our trailers is 35' which is 1 ft. over their 34' limit. Do you think that will be a problem negotiating the turns within the rv park?

+1 - we stayed here last year in a pull-thru site and have a 36' fifth wheel - no problems. Maybe they have changed their policy?

You should have no problem with a 35 foot trailer. As I recall the interior turns were not sharp. We were there in a 35 foot 5th wheel. There is a Albertsons and aRV dealer about 5 blocks from the campground. It is nothing special as a campground except it is clean safe and so centrally located. Check it out on maps in the satellite view.

Have you checked into the prices at Fireside? Be prepared for sticker shock! Where ever you are planning to stay you should make reservations as soon as they will take them for next summer. If you wait until February or later you will not get a space for prime time.

The one time I tried staying in Jackson, the traffic was impossible. With that being said, we ended up at Gros Vente (sp)....and as I understand it now, if your lucky, you can reserve a water/elect site. Just a thought. Have Fun where ever you end up!

According to their website they say 36' for both 5th wheel and travel trailers.

Stayed there also in 2019 before all the reservation only stuff hit. It was a spur of the moment trip detour. Pulled in around 3:00 PM and got a great site. It was mostly full by dinner time.
Not to far from most of the Teton stuff. We even drove up into Yellowstone and by pure luck got there about 30 mins before the big blow.
Jacksons a frickin zoo and not worth much more than a dinner or lunch.
On our 2nd nite in Gros Ventre we had moose come right through our site about 1:00 AM or so. I heard a nose and got up and from other light around I could see the moose walking right beside our TT. Absolutely amazing.
We were there the the week after Labor Day. A week or so later it snowed.
