This is one of the more expensive site we've stayed. With tax it was $76 a night, but Colter Bay was worth the visit. The upside: the camp ground is spacious. Excellent pull through and roomy on both sides with plenty of shade. Full-hookup made the trip worry-free for a longer stay. The downside: unleveled, and not just a little bit. It required one side of my trailer to use stacks of 4 yellow blocks. There is a picnic table, but camp fire not allowed, hanging clothes not allowed, as our neighbors received lengthy warnings from the ground keepers, but their concerns are understandable as most people respectfully obeyed. I'd recommend bringing your bike, makes going around faster, even though the village is close enough to walk. Customer service over the phone was friendly and competent. We were one day late to our arrival date. To avoid "no show" and risk having the entire reservations cancelled as their policy stated, we called. Glad to have found that they wouldn't do such unless they call you the day after you haven't shown, to make sure you are definitely not coming before they cancel. We arrived the next next night, found our name and assigned site information on the late arrival board after the office is closed. We would definitely visit again. We camped at Colter Bay Village RV Park -- Full Hookups (Concessionaire Operated) in a Travel Trailer.
Bring a bike to go around faster. General store, laundry facility, visitor center, the marina and gift shops are cluster together. Rent a kayak, canoe, motor boat, or go on the scenic boat cruise that takes you close to the foot of the mountain at the marina. Go on a beautiful hike on the Hermitage Point trailhead next to marina that hugs the lake. Look for wild life around Colter Bay, which is the most abundant in the entire Grand Teton Park.
