Our first choice was Jenny Lake, but it was full. Signal Mountain is centrally located in the park an covers a hill and borders Jackson lake. The bathrooms were a little old and beat up (no soap) but adequate. No onsite showers, but they do have potable water and a dish sink. We camped in a non-electric spot, and I think it was a good value. The campground is filled with mature trees and camp spots all have gravel filled tent boxes and each site has a bear box.

Room Tip: I didn't see much difference in the sites. I believe the outer sites did border the lake.

The campground is indeed beautiful and very well maintained. Just like all the campsites- you need to get there early to get your pick of sites- or to get one at all. It's frustrating that you still have to pay electric hook up prices when we were in just a tent :(

I did love being able to glance up and see the mountains- and walk down to the lake and to the restaurant at signal mountain.

The only thing that is a bit unnerving is the bathrooms. It's an adventure to get there!! :)

We really enjoyed Signal Mountain Campground. We got there early Tuesday morning and were able to get 3 campsites next to each other, but if you want to be sure of getting a site, you need to get there early in the day and early in the week helps, too. The campground has some great views of Jackson Lake, and has a good beach with a dock down at the boat ramp. We enjoyed swimming and jumping off the dock after a long day of hiking. Though many of the great hikes are in the Jenny Lake area, this campground isn't too far of a drive from that, and it is much closer to Colter Bay, and anything you want to do in the North of the Park. The campground was clean, and well maintained, and the water and bathroom facilities were great.

We stayed one night at this campground and thought it was great. The title of my review might be a bit misleading because I am sure Jenny is great too, but I would not skip over Signal Mountain if you could go there. No showers though, but you do have bathrooms and drinking water. By the time we got to the camp site (about 3pm), we were pretty much the last one to get a spot, and even that one was fine. If you arrive earlier or you stay a couple of nights, you can go for even nicer, private spots closer to (though not on) the water. After a couple nights of camping (at different locations) we also really enjoyed the GREAT meal at the next door Signal Mountain lodge. The place has a great bar, restaurant, little super market (and a really nice one at that!), and gas station. A nice, but also convenient place. (Note that once you are at the campground though, you don't notice the activity at the lodge and gas station next door.)

Room Tip: Arrive early if you can.

We have been to GTNP for the last three summers and decided to try this campground for the first time. We have a pop up camper (27' long). We had reservations in Colter Bay RV park so on our last day there we went over to "scout out" the campground. It is fairly wooded - some sites have more shade than others. The sites with views of the lake are less shaded. The first loop has electricity, but no water or sewer. There is a water/dump station as you come in. There are not many sites which can accommodate the larger RVs. And even if they do, please think about the narrow road and how close your neighbors are with their big trucks. We had trouble even with our pop up finding a site we could easily back into (all are back in sites). We did get a site with electricity ($45/night - site #6. The non-electric sites were $22/night) which had a relatively flat site and the back end of the site had a view of the lake. But we also had very close neighbors. Almost all the sites had easy access to a bath house. The bath houses only have cold water and no soap. But there were service sinks and potable water faucets. Each site had a large bear box and a fire pit. We fit a large cooler, a large tote, several boxes of food and toiletries, and our grill in the box. The sites were clean and the restrooms were really clean (checked three times a day by staff). The staff were very helpful and nice. We never saw any bears, but we did have deer walk right through our site twice.

A word about the first come thing. We have always stayed at places that take reservations so this was a new experience for us. We went the day before and picked up a map and drove through the camp ground. Each site has a post and on the post is a ticket with the check out date listed. This way we were able to mark the sites we thought we could fit into and would be available the day we were moving in. Each morning, the staff goes around the campground about 8am and takes all the tickets down for the exiting guests. They have until 11 am for check out, however. And the campers can "re-up" their stay by 11 am too so have a few in mind in case the current residents decide to stay. We heard a couple of parties when we were checking in saying they weren't sure how long they'd be there so they were paying by the day. When you find a site you want and it's vacated or the campers are leaving, you need to put something in the site indicating that it is "taken." You could tell the campers who do this often because they had pre-made, often laminated signs, attached to posts or taped on their camp chairs they would leave in the site. They read "taken" or "occupied" or "reserved". You then drive back up to the office, fill out an envelope, put in your cash and keep the stub. The stub goes on the post at your campsite showing your check out date. You can pay with credit card, but you have to go to the store around the corner from the campground and get a receipt. We were early enough that we didn't have any problems getting one of the sites we wanted, but the day we checked out there were several folks who missed out on some great sites because others go in there faster.

The campground is within walking distance of the Jackson Lake restaurants (there are two, plus a bar), two gift shops, a gas station and convenience store. The convenience store was more like a campstore with sundries, fire wood, fresh coffee, ice cream treats, etc. My kids said it had a nice selection of candy. There are no showers available and the closest place for one is about 15 minutes away at Colter Bay. No laundry facilities either. The location made it easy to get to Jenny Lake.

There are tons of mosquitoes however! Be warned. Lots of bug spray is needed. We brought our screen tent after reading the few reviews on this site about the campground and I'm glad we did. It made eating outside tolerable. But the nights were cool, the site was clean and quiet and we had a great view of the lake. We would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Get a map and ride around the campground the day before. Then be prepared to put something in the site to "hold" it for you. Go early. Most days it didn't fill up until early afternoon, but the good sites go early.
