I just returned from a trip from Phoenix to Salt lake City to Jackson Hole WY to Colter Bay Campground to West Yellowstone and the Grizzly Campground.
When you get inside The Grand Tetons or Yellowstone expect to pat from $55 a night and up. You really don't get much for your money.
Colter Bay inside The Tetons National Park is OK for a trailer but was a little tight for a tall motorhome. Just trees, dirt and unlevel spaces. All it has is its in the woods and close to Jackson Lake. Lots of Forest Ranger movies, briefings, talks and even some hiking. We spend 3 days but 2 would have been OK with us.
If you plan to stay inside Yellowstone most campgrounds are rustic and many dry camping areas. We decided to stay in West Yellowstone outside the west entrance at The Grizzly Campground. For $55 you get a level space, grass trees and full hookup with free wifi and cable TV. We stayed 4 nights and it was worth it. Lots to do and see in W Yelowstone and you also have grocery stroes, restarants and lots more. Not a big town but you can buy your souviner cheaper.
Fuel prices were reasonable for the area.
If you are coming into Jackson Hole WY and then north that is a nice busy town with everything you could want. I'm sure you can setup there and drive north into The Tetons if you like.
I'm sure you will find more info from others
Bottom line is to make reservations as soon as you know your firm dates.
That also depends on what time of the year you are heading there.
Here is a link to my original message asking for help also before the trip
