Wyoming (NW) Boondocking

For those interested in some off the heavily beaten paths boon-docking in the Grand Teton Nat'l Park and Bridger Teton area here are some ideas (non of these areas have water, electricity or dump capabilities):

Grassy Lake Road - Grassy Lake Road is the east-west artery through the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway intersection at Flagg Ranch. From this road, you can access the major hiking trails, primitive campsites. Dirt road that was just graded this summer (2012) from Flagg Ranch in about 8 miles. (After that is gets VERY rough). Some great, remote sites for trailers up to 25'.

Crystal Creek - (From Kelly, go 2 miles north on Forest Route 30350, then 10.5 miles east on FR 30400. Latitude: 43.6107728 Longitude: -110.4313075) -7,300 foot elevation. 6 campsites on the Wild and Scenic Gros Ventre River east of Slide Lake. The rock formations that form the river canyon are spectacularly colored.

Red Hills Campground - (From Kelly, take Forest Route 30350 north two miles to FR 30400. Go east on this for 10.5 miles.) Latitude: 43.6113283 Longitude: -110.4374189) One of our favorites, quiet, sites are ON the Gros Ventre River. Great hiking into Gros Ventre Wilderness.

Curtis Canyon Campground - (From Elk Refuge Headquarters in Jackson, take Flat Creek Road northeast 7 miles. Latitude: 43.5124321 Longitude: -110.6613136) The road up to campground can be rough. 6600-foot elevation. 11 campsites on the eastern border and above the National Elk Refuge. Scenic views of the Tetons, and the refuge from close to the campsites. Nearby hiking trailheads lead into the Gros Ventre Wilderness.

North Western Wyoming sites

Thank you for being so generous to offer some options to getting off the beaten path.

I have made a copy of your thread locations and might just slip into one or two next camping season. It has been many years since spending any time in that area of Forests, investigating a lumbering fatality for the State of Wyoming in 1971. As we all discover, there are always NEW places to explore and take a look at. I am looking forward to getting a look in an area I usually avoid due to the number of people visiting the wonderful National Parks in such a small area of the State.

Great tips! We'll check these out on our next trip to Yellowstone.

Just curious, do you know if there were there tours at the fish hatchery?

Jackson Fish Hatchery?

Some years back we stopped at the Jackson Fish Hatchery north of Jackson and were able to get a good walking tour, unannounced.

This summer we drove past the hatchery during high season and noticed a pretty empty parking lot. Maybe no one was interested in stopping, it is closed or unannounced travelers do not expect to stop by.

Thank you very much for the great tips on Wyoming boondocking. We have been boondocking in the Bighorn National Forest out of Ranchester and Buffalo for several years now. On our next trip we will head out west and try out some new spots.

As Ray stated above, you can stop by and walk around without a problem. I live in the Jackson Hole area and do not recall there being a formal tour of the facility.
