Do you offer early check-in or late check-out?
Yes we do, however, early check-in and late check-out are based on availability and fees to do so are required. Arriving early does not guarantee that your cabin/campsite will be ready at that time. Late departure does not guarantee that you will be able to stay at the cabin/campsite until departing from the park. Early arrival/late departure only guarantees extended access to the Camp-Resort and amenities. Click to learn more about our cabin and campsite policies.

DO YOU HAVE RVS AVAILABLE TO RENT?
While we do not rent RVs ourselves, we do partner with RV Share, a peer-to-peer online RV rental service. Browse available RVs here. With the rental of an RV from RV Share, you will still need to reserve a site.
Can I bring my pet with me?
Yes! Pets are allowed at our RV sites, but not in our playgrounds, restrooms, or other buildings. There is a 2 pet max. Select cabins are pet-friendly for a nightly fee. One pet is $10/night (maximum of $40) and two pets are $15/night (maximum of $60). Guests or visitors may not bring pets with them. If they arrive with a pet, they may not be permitted to enter the Camp-Resort. Pet owners must keep their pet leashed at all times and are responsible for noise control and clean up. We reserve the right to remove hostile pets from the park. You can view our pet waiver here.
Do you offer linen rentals?
Can my friends come and visit?
Absolutely! Guests must pay a visitor fee and the number of people per site cannot exceed 8. Check out prices here.
Can I pitch a tent at my campsite with my RV?
Yes you can! We allow 1 small, 2-man tent at every RV site (in addition to the RV). Unfortunately, we don’t allow tents at any of our cabin sites.
What is the extra car policy and how many can be at one site?
We allow 2 cars per site (both cabin and campsite). If you have any additional vehicles, you must purchase a $5 car pass and park in our overflow parking lot near the park entrance.
Do you have quiet hours?
We do! Quiet hours are from 10pm to 8am Sunday through Thursday and 11pm to 7am Friday and Saturday. Any guest under 18 years of age must be at their campsite or cabin during these hours, unless accompanied by an adult.
Are alcoholic beverages allowed?
They are, but the beverage must be held in an unmarked container or koozie. This is a family Camp-Resort, so please be considerate of others and refrain from loud and unseemly language.
Can we bring pool toys?
Yes you can! We allow pool toys at our Ranger Smith™ Pool.
Are fireworks allowed?
With the exception of sparklers, fireworks are not allowed in Jellystone Park™.
Where do I get firewood?
We have firewood available for purchase and delivery at our Camp Store and Registration Station! Campers are not allowed to bring their own firewood due to state regulations. This is to prevent the spread of invasive species causing deforestation. To preserve the beauty of our wooded Camp-Resort, please do not cut down or damage trees in any way.
Do you have Wi-Fi?
We do, but the signal strength varies throughout the Camp-Resort. It’s best near the Registration Station and the Camp Store. We think this is the perfect time to disconnect and enjoy the great outdoors!
What is the speed limit?
Because the Camp-Resort is full of active families with children, the speed limit throughout the camp-resort is 5MPH and is strongly enforced for your safety. We realize that this is ridiculous. If you do not feel that you are driving ridiculously slow, then you are driving too fast.
Can I bring my own golf cart, motorized scooter, or ATV to the camp-resort?
For safety and liability reasons, guests are not permitted to bring any personal motorized vehicles, such as golf carts, into Jellystone Park™. While we do not like to be the fun police, guests found in violation of this policy may be asked to leave without refund. For your convenience, we do offer golf cart rentals that allow accessing our Camp-Resort easy…and fun! If you have a disability, you can bring your own golf cart, however, you must provide documentation for insurance and have a handicap placard.
Can I smoke at the park?
Since we are a family Camp-Resort, smoking, including vaping, of any kind is not permitted in common and indoor areas, including but not limited to the pool area, playgrounds, pavilions and all buildings. Smoking is not permitted inside cabins or on cabin porches, but is permitted at cabin sites. Smoking is permitted at campsites, but must be confined to your designated site. Smoking of any substances besides tobacco and vaporizers will not be tolerated. Management reserves the right to fine violators of this policy.
