Unfortunately, there are no showers or electrical or water hookups in the park. However, there are restrooms with cold running water and flush toilets located throughout the campground. The link below is a map of Smokemont Campground, with a key that indicates restroom locations.

Petter,

Certain campgrounds can hold larger size tents! If there is a specific campground you are interested, give the Reservation line a ring and they can tell you whether it will fit or not. For more specific information on an exact campground, please call (307) 344-7311.

If you're going into the backcountry, be sure to carefully examine the Backcountry Camping Guide. This will tell you where all the campgrounds are located, as well as what permits you will need before heading out.  

Enjoy your trip and be sure to come back to Oh, Ranger's Facebook Page and post pictures of your adventure! Happy Trails!

You only have to pay one vehicle/entrance fee when entering either Yellowstone or Grand Teton. It's advised you keep your receipt on you for when you take the motorcycle off the truck bed and cruise around the park. For more information on Grand Teton call (307) 739-3300; for more information on Yellowstone call (307) 344-7381.
