Many people come to this beautiful town to visit for a week or two. Here’s how to stay a little longer, on a budget.
Dispersed (Free) Camping: Fall Creek Rd between Hoback Junction and Wilson, Granite Creek and Little Granite Creek Rds southeast of Hoback Junction, Curtis Canyon east of the Elk Reserve, Shadow Mountain and Slide Lake near Kelly, and Grassy Lake Rd at the northern boundary of Grand Teton.
Projects: Rally’s Pet Garage is our pick for dog boarding and self-service dog wash tubs. Gloria at Jackson Hole Girl Friday was a big help with getting our bikes cleaned up, tuned, and covered. If you need help with projects, she’s a great resource. Stitch N Time sells fabric, can refer you to a tailor, and has a sewing machine and ironing board in the shop for customer use. Bill Dillon at Jackson Hole Boot and Shoe has creative solutions for sewing projects.
Water: Shevrin’s Oil and most of the campgrounds have water taps. If you use the tap at Shevrin’s, please buy gas and thank them. Water taps are hard to find at gas stations in Jackson. (Hint to the gas stations: water is a really cheap way to market to RVers, who typically spend $100 on a fill up.)
Laundry: We recommend the Missing Sock over Broadway Laundry.
Grocery: Smith’s (next to the Missing Sock) has moderate prices yet stocks some organic produce and has bulk bins. The weekday farmer’s market is a good place to get produce, as well.
Work and Wifi: The Teton County Library offers a visitor library card for $10, and gives away shipping labels so you can mail back books from the road. The library and Cafe Boheme are good places to get work done.
