Great Site to Visit Yellowstone and Tetons Without Moving Rig

Headwaters was a perfect campground if you want to park your rig in one spot with full hookups and be able to see both southern Yellowstone and the Tetons. It is a decent drive to see the main sites at both parks, so if you are willing to move your rig and give up hookup options, then you may be better off finding a campsite in each park and move sites mid-trip trip. However it worked perfect for us to see the southern loop of Yellowstone while also hitting up Jackson Hole and Tetons while keeping our rig in one spot. Beyond the location, the sites were flat, well maintained and across the street from fuel, convenience store and restaurant. We had a nice pull thru site (419) with plenty of room between sites. The sewer hookups were unique and required a sewer hose support to make it work properly, but otherwise hookups were good. No cell service for Verizon – we had to drive 10 miles south to Jackson Lake Overlook to get service. Not a big deal and nice to disconnect, until we had a marshmallow burn injury and really missed having internet! Some dust from the campground roads, but not as bad as other campgrounds we’ve been to. Only bummer was the firewood we bought from the convenience store across the street was still fresh and damp, so our campfires were not great during our visit. Campground was very quiet with great coverage of pine trees between sites. The area is administered by the National Park Service, even though it’s not technically in a national park. Therefore, the same rules apply as National Parks. We found out that the campground also has “security” that doubles as a first aide support (needed after the burning marshmallow incident) who was an outstanding guy – couldn’t thank him enough for his help, burn cream, and good humor. Security also plays the role of grizzly chaser, as there are a few that frequent the area. They are very serious about keeping food locked up to prevent bear encounters – so make sure to be bear aware with food. Campground overall was great and we’d stay here again.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a 40’ motorhome amidst a peaceful, rustic environment. Lots of trees and spacious pull through slots. Many potholes on the dirt roads but we navigated them slowly. Definitely no cell or Wi-Fi service which was ok for us – nice break! Great to have a gas station on site. Location is good between Yellowstone and Grand Teton NPs.

The cabins at Headwaters may seem a bit pricey, but you're staying pretty far out in the woods and the service has been excellent for the six years we've been coming here (sometimes twice per year). You can get a good meal at Sheffield's, sleep in a modern, comfortable bed, get up before dawn and see the stars in a clear, black sky, and watch wolves, bear and elk either south in Grand Teton NP or north in Yellowstone. It's a fantastic place to stay. One note on the cabins: they seem to be updating them in phases: the premium cabins overlooking the Snake River and the meadows are comfortable and contemporary. The "standard" cabins are more basic. If you're OK with a more rustic cabin, check out Colter Bay. Those are fine and much less expensive, but you're also surrounded by around ten times the number of people. Headwaters is smaller and quieter, and we've tracked bear, watched elk drink at the river and listened to wolves howling minutes from the door of our cabin. One tip on wildlife viewing: Visit in the first three weeks of the season or the last one. The parks are wonderful all season long, and if you go to the right places (Hayden Valley; Lamar Valley; Willow Flats) you can see wildlife all summer. But the fact is that the influx of people in the high season drive many animals into the high country.

We enjoyed our stay at a standard cabin. We would have liked to have a microwave. Perhaps these are available in the deluxe cabins but I can't say. The office staff was great. We had dinner with reservations at the Grand Teton Lodge in the Mural room which was about a 30 min. drive. We only had decaf coffee packs I think a oversight by the housekeeping staff. The shower was nice and the beds comfortable.

Camping Cabin Plus Restaurant Review

Camping Cabins - The camping cabins are located in the campground at Flagg Ranch. They are substantial, tight, and insulated. They come with two double beds with foam-type mattresses arranged in a bunk-bed style. No linens. There is one chair, a small table, and a battery lamp. There is a fireplace and picnic table outside. These are a big step up from tent camping...particularly as it was snowing/raining when we arrived. Bathrooms are the same as the campground. This is a different type of accomodation that you may enjoy as a novelty. I did. I rate the cabins as a 4. Restaurant - The restaurant visit was infuriating. The restaurant takes reservations. We arrived without one. If someone does not show up for the reservation, the restaurant leaves the reserved table empty and refuses to seat anyone who is waiting. When this craziness was pointed out to the hostess, she did agree that the policy was stupid. So even at prime dinner hour, the restaurant was empty! See picture. One star, would give zero if possible.
