Pleasant and clean and conveniently located -- petrol station nearby, restaurant right on site if you don't want to go into Jackson. Despite location at main intersection, it wasn't noisy. Pleasant staff. Much cheaper than anything in the centre of Jackson.

After a stop at the Visitor Center, I drove north over the ranger-recommended route, including a lunch stop at the Blue Heron at the Jackson Lake Lodge. Best ...
... around a small section of each lake. Pretty woods connected the two lakes. At first, we thought we saw moose scat on the trail, but then quickly realized it was just horse poop and that the trail we were on must be a popular horseback riding trail. We never encountered horses on the tail, but unfortunately, we never encountered moose either.
We cooked dinner back at our campsite ...
... to my over-imagination filled mind. I think I shouted things like “beans on toast” and started singing the theme tune to Winnie the Pooh!
At one point realising we had taken a wrong turn and was nowhere near the lakes edge but high up on the ridge that I started to panic and assured Paulie I would not be hiking like this in Yellowstone! But of course ...
