Atherton Campground Trail Sign

Atherton Creek Campground is located on Lower Slide Lake. This is a beautiful and quiet camping location where you can quickly and easily get away from the hustle and bustle of Grand Teton National Park and Jackson, but still access those places in less than 30 minutes if you wish. The road access is paved up to the campground and winds through aspen stands with gorgeous views of the Gros Ventre River. Boat and fishing access are excellent for Lower Slide Lake, allowing for great trout fishing and peaceful evenings floating around looking for wildlife.
