Welcome to Grand Teton National Park: Where the wildflowers sprawl in all directions, lush meadows roll softly, and the jagged, impressive mountains soar tall into the sky. It’s pretty much what dreams are made of, if you ask us.

For those who haven’t come face-to-face with the park’s alpine grandeur quite yet, get excited; there are 310,000 acres chock-full of postcard-like scenery. Lucky for van travelers, there are no shortage of campervan-friendly campgrounds to snooze at for the night — so much so, you’ll probably have a hard time picking which one to cozy up at when the sun falls behind the mountainous peaks.

Here are 5 campgrounds right near the park to get your planning started:

Signal Mountain Campground

Nestle yourself at Signal Mountain Campground in the pine forested serenity of Jackson Lake: a glass-like body of water with the Teton mountains as its backdrop. Some sites are right on the lake, whereas others are only a short walk away. With close proximity to Signal Mountain Lodge, it’s not the most remote option abound, but it does provide access to restaurants, laundry services, and marina activities. Not to mention, the views of nearby Mount Moran are undoubtedly epic.

Fast facts:

  • $34/night
  • No reservations
  • Flush toilets
  • Coin-operated showers
  • Potable water available

Gros Ventre Campground

This grassy, riverside spot holds the title of the park’s largest campground and is also closest to the town of Jackson. Seven loops, 300 individual campsites, and 5 large group campsites make it quite sizable, but there’s tons of space to spread out. Thanks to nearby Gros Ventre River and the surrounding landscape, it’s pretty common for your friendly neighbors to be bison, deer, and moose. Forgot something to roast on the campfire? Fear not, Jackson is only a 16-minute drive away (although it feels much more isolated).

Fast facts:

  • $33/night
  • Reservations for group campsites; all other sites are first-come, first-served
  • Flush toilets
  • No showers
  • Potable water available

Colter Bay Campground

Another pine forest favorite, Colter Bay Campground shares the same awe-inspiring views of Mount Moran, yet sits a bit further away from Jackson Lake. It offers easy access to Hermitage Point Trailhead — a jumping off point for a 10-mile round trip trek that provides panoramic lake and mountain views, along with plenty of wildlife sightings. If ten miles sounds a bit ambitious for you, no worries; there are countless other things to do throughout the sagebrush meadows that make up the Teton landscape. Swing by neighboring Colter Bay Village if you’re interested in the visitor’s center, restaurants, shops, or other assorted modern day conveniences. It’s cute as can be, even if you’re just passing through!

Fast facts:

  • $36/night
  • Reservations for group campsites; all other sites are first-come, first-served
  • Flush toilets
  • Coin-operated showers
  • Potable water available

Lizard Creek Campground

Off-the-beaten-path aficionados, this one’s for you! Lizard Creek Campground is both rustic and remote. Although we’re not quite sure where the lizard component comes in, this campground positions you 11 miles south of oh-so famous Yellowstone and 8 miles north of Colter Bay Village. Immerse yourself in the spruce and fir forest up against Jackson Lake without any nearby civilization. What can we say; it makes for quite the idyllic, natural getaway.

Fast facts:

  • $31/night
  • No reservations
  • Flush toilets
  • No showers
  • Potable water available

Curtis Canyon Campground

For those looking for the best of both worlds between convenience and less civilization (and budget-friendliness to boot!), you’ll find Curtis Canyon Campground to be your ideal balance. This wooded campground sits just above the National Elk Refuge, a sanctuary space for one of the largest elk herds on the globe. It’s close enough to town in case you need a last-minute supply run, but further away compared to most of its counterparts. And, you guessed it — the views of the Tetons are just as jaw-dropping as the rest.

Fast facts:

  • $15/night
  • No reservations
  • Flush toilets
  • No showers
  • Potable water available
