Situated on eight wildlife-filled acres where moose, elk, red-tailed hawks, bald eagles and deer roam and nest, you’d never know Fireside Resort was a mere seven miles from Jackson’s bustling town square. Just south of Grand Teton National Park with views of the Grand Teton Mountain Range from the property, Fireside Resort offers the intimacy of a boutique hotel, the atmosphere of a wooded campground and the ambience of a cozy vacation home.
Bed & Bath
Walk into your personal one-bedroom cabin, designed in a modern rustic style, and any ideas of cowboy kitsch disappear. Constructed from recycled Wyoming snow fence, the sleek structures have gas fireplaces, plush chocolate leather couches and bright contemporary art, all softened by the gnarled exposed wood beams overhead. Each comes with a furnished deck, a full kitchen, and a Tempurpedic pullout couch (in addition to the comfy King-sized bed in the bedroom). HD flat-screen TVs and rain showers add to the contempo-cozy charm.
There is no restaurant or even a central building; most guests cook in their kitchens or eat in nearby restaurants. But the staff can guide you to the top local pros-in-the-know who will assist you in biking, rafting and fly fishing trips in the summer, or skiing and snowmobiling in the winter. The Fireside Resort experience is simple: It’s a comfortable, tucked-away haven to relax, rejuvenate and set up headquarters for all your Jackson adventures. And while it might be tempting to hole up by the fire in your homey pied-à-terre, Yellowstone National Park, Jackson’s saloon-filled downtown and the world-renowned Jackson Hole Mountain Resort are all an easy drive away.
In the Area
Fly over the 305,000 acres of legendary Jackson powder with High Mountain Heli-Skiing to make those first backcountry tracks. Or, explore Yellowstone National Park by snowmobile and enjoy lunch at Geyser Grill as Old Faithful erupts in front of your eyes. In the summer, Jackson’s Snake River is famed for having the strongest population of cutthroat trout in the Rocky Mountain West. Learn to reel them in on one of of Fireside Resort’s own guided fly-fishing trips. The on-site stables and 60 horses make Spring Creek Ranch the perfect place to have a quintessential dude ranch experience — from hour-long trail rides to overnight mountain excursions. Worked up an appetite? Jackson’s pitch-perfect Snake River Grill offers a luxe spin on Wild West dining with dishes like black angus New York strip steak and truffle fries.
How to Get There
Yes this is pricey- it’s Jackson. Nice campground, kids liked being outside playing and hot tub was nice. Laundry and showers worked well. Women’s bathroom was clean. This is a good location if you’re going to Teton village.
We LOVED the staff at this campground! The RV sites were a little expensive but we were there in July and it is in Jackson Hole. Everything in Jackson Hole is expensive June-August, but we knew that going in. As other reviewers have stated, the bathrooms are a little dated but they are very clean and well maintained. They are freshly painted and well kept just not trendy in design. If they redo the decor/design in bathrooms to match the WheelHaus cabins I think people would be more impressed. :) However, I was impressed with how often the staff cleans and stocks the bathrooms.
Many past reviewers were dinging the park for the price but they are in line with all the other RV parks (that are not as nice) that are in Jackson Hole.
There are many big-rigs in the park with 3-4 slides and they had plenty of room. We have a 40 ft travel trailer with 3 slides and we more than enough room and plenty shade trees, fire ring, and a nice little creek running through the back. Our site was fairly level (we required one leveling block under each tire on curb-side) and was gravel with grassy lawn area. We had much needed shade trees and 50 amp service. The water is clear and cold!
The staff is what stands out at this park though! Kathy and her husband went the extra mile for us and were so warm and friendly. We would go back there just to have "friends" like them to welcome us back :) We We will come back in the September for sure when the prices are a little better and less crowds!
The units are great - tiny homes, comfortable and well furnished. Separate living room with kitchenette, very nice bath, front porch and adequate storage for luggage. Nice staff. Two thumbs up on the accommodations!
The issue is location. The resort is located on a busy road, in front of an RV Park. With no AC, leaving windows at least cracked is critical. There is a constant stream of traffic on the street and inside the “resort” as people come and go to their RVs. So it is a very noisy location without any views.
You should also be aware that room cleaning is an additional $35 charge. Not sure this is clear on the website.
I’ll probably opt for a similar concept at Rustic Creek Inn next time - a much better setting.
I’d say these are overpriced given their location, but you would really need to comparison shop, as Jackson is a very pricey market overall.
