What is glamping?2020-04-28T16:19:42+00:00

At Moose Creek Ranch, glamping opens up the world of camping to those who prefer not to rough it. You’ll luxuriate in amenities that feel like home and leave conventional campgrounds in the trail dust.

The word glamping combines “glamorous” and “camping” into one word that has stormed the world and offered new avenues of escape. Though a fairly new term, the concept dates back centuries to the Turkish Ottomans. With silks, high-end rugs and even furnishings, they carried along tents fit for a sultan. Wealthy Europeans and Americans carried the concept forward in the early 1900s in safari tents kitted out with Persian rugs, linen bedding and a chef to make sure they ate well.

The past lives on at Moose Creek Ranch. Are you ready for luxury camping in the Tetons?

Moose Creek Ranch is located just off Old Jackson Highway, at the base of Teton Pass on the quieter and more peaceful Idaho side of the Tetons.

When is the busy season at Moose Creek Ranch?2020-09-18T13:36:22+00:00

Summer:

June through September is the summer high season in and around Jackson Hole. Fourth of July is typically one of our busiest times due to cooler mountain weather and an amazing local fireworks show both in Driggs, Idaho and in nearby Jackson Hole and Teton Village, Wyoming.

Winter: 

In Winter it’s busy from Christmas through March. Downhill skiers will enjoy the short driving distance to Grand Targhee Resort and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. For intrepid backcountry skiers, we are at the base of Teton Pass, a Mecca of North American backcountry skiing. Additionally, we have cross-country skiing on-site as we are a 4 season resort. 

Do I need to make a reservation? Is my reservation deposit refundable? Are there additional guest fees?2021-04-02T07:56:24+00:00

We strongly recommend reservations a few weeks in advance for the summer months. RV spots are filling up sometimes three months in advance. Due to the appeal of Teton Valley and its proximity to National Parks we expect full capacity almost every night in the summer months.

For reservations cancelled more than 14 days in advance, we refund your card in total minus the credit card processing fee of 3%. For reservations cancelled within the 14 your booking is non-refundable. We take payment upfront in full for all reservations.
