STAY SAFE. STAY SANE. GET OUTSIDE.

WHAT WE’RE DOING TO ENSURE A SAFE GETAWAY

A letter from our team

To our valued campers,

It is our goal to offer you some much needed rest and relaxation during this trying time. Camping in the great outdoors is one of the safest activities to do right now, and we’re so glad we’re able to provide families with a place to make long-lasting memories!Here at Jellystone Park™, we are doing everything we can to provide our campers with a safe stay that is still full of fun! To help keep our campers and staff members safe, we have enhanced sanitation measures that include frequent cleaning and disinfecting of areas throughout the entire Camp-Resort. To ensure our campers have the best vacation ever, we have a variety of available attractions to keep our campers entertained, while staying safe, from dawn to dusk. We, along with Yogi Bear™ & friends, look forward to welcoming you!
