Great location but....
At the south gate of Yellowstone but this place is dust bowl. Dirt roads, dirt RV pads. You cannot sit outside and enjoy nature with each car's passing stirring up dust coating everything in sight including you, food chairs, etc.... Took our dog for a walk and it kicked up dust and was covered.
Bathrooms and showers are clean but that does not make up for campground that charges way too much for what you get and your tax dollars have already paid for.

Great access to both Parks
We approached this campground via Rte 26 at the Grand Teton National Park Moran entrance. There were only a few cars ahead of us but on a Sunday we saw a line of cars a mile long waiting to get in. The drive through Teton to the Flagg ranch took about 45 minutes due to the road work, unsure drivers, and the 45 mph speed restriction. The entrance turning left into the Headwaters campground was clearly marked. Once inside there is a lodge, convenience store, and gas station. We continued on the the left into the RV Camp area. Ahead was the laundry room and next door a checkin room. Check in was simple with reservations. The counter person gave a map and directions. We found our site easily. It was a pull through which is always great. It was a full hook up with a picnic table and fire ring. Our site was surrounded by tall pine trees. There were clean bath houses with toilets and showers. The laundry room accepts quarters:washers $2.25, dryers $1.75. There was a bill exchange machine which takes $5 and $10 bills. The convenience store in the lodge has a little bit of everything. The large gift store has the same souvenirs as the Parks stores. There was also a restaurant which we did not go into. All stores opened at 0700 hrs. We were very happy with our three days in this campground.

Good location for visiting both parks
We stayed in the RV park. It was clean, crowded but adequate. Taking into consideration the location, the price was reasonable. They had a convenience store with the bare essentials, a gas station and a nice restaurant with a breakfast buffet. We had a large fifth wheel and on first glance I thought it would be to small to maneuver. But it was laid out well and I was able to get in and out without problem.
If you just have to have cell service and WIFI then don't stop here. they have neither. You get it in both parks surprisingly at many places, so we didn't miss it. We weren't there for those and it was actually pleasant once you realized you didn't have it. A nice break from the world.

Great location for us, but rather expensive for what it was
We planned our trip at the last minute and didn't have a lot of chose, we liked the idea of the Headwaters Lodge & Cabins as it was just on the edge of Yellowstone and the start of the Grand Tetons.
The cabin was fine apart from a few mosquitoes, for the price we were expecting a little more, there is no a/c in the cabin just a portable fan, as well as no wifi - the lodge does however have it, but every time we tried we were unable to connect. The staff that we spoke to were very helpful especially the bar tender and the security guard who offered the best places to take pictures of the Grand Tetons.

Find someplace else
I reserved Headwaters because of its location between the two parks. It was convenient for Grand Teton but not so much for Yellowstone because Yellowstone is so big. We stayed in a premium cabin. It was nothing special for the astronomical price they charged. Four nights with no cell service and no WiFi is a ‘no’ in my book. They have WiFi in the lodge but so many people gather there that it’s hard to get any results. When my husband asked if he could sit in the Bistro (bar area) to work on his laptop at 3:15 pm with no one in there, the waiter said as long as he ordered something, he could stay. This is no very friendly service. I would never stay there again and I would not recommend staying there.
