questions answered blog

Why should I take my family camping to Jellystone Park™?

Staying at Jellystone Park™ Williamsport opens up a whole new set of activities and attractions that campers of all ages will love! Join us every week during peak season, or every weekend during non-peak season, for themed events – like Under the Sea, Christmas in July, and Science & Discovery! Plus, we have a variety of attractions that’s fun for all ages – like the Water Zone, pool, Lazer Tag, mini golf, playgrounds, and so much more! Don’t forget to enjoy sitting under the stars and chowing down on a delicious s’more on a warm summer night!

Is the Water Zone included in my stay?

Absolutely! Every guest on your reservation will receive a wristband, which is your ticket to fun throughout the entirety of your stay! Splash the day away at the Water Zone or relax poolside! Don’t forget to stop by our mini golf course and jumping pillows – these attractions and more are included in your stay as well! You can view all of our attractions here.

What should I take with me?

If you’re staying in one of our cabins, make sure to pack bed sheets and bathroom linens. Or, if you would rather save on the packing space, you can take advantage of our linen rentals! You’ll also get to enjoy your own charcoal grill, so pack up your grilling tools and favorite cookout ingredients! You can also stock-up on groceries and other essentials you may have forgot to pack at the Ranger Station! 

Other items to bring:

-Card & board games

-Umbrellas in case it rains

-Bug spray & sunscreen

-Marshmallow roasters & s’more ingredients

Which season is best for camping?

Our most popular time of the year is summer when our Water Zone is open. Spring camping is great for families who want to reconnect with nature and enjoy a quieter, less crowded park! During the fall, we have lots of fun themed weekend plans with activities like trick-or-treating, pumpkin patches, and costume/site decorating contests! Tried and true campers know that there is something truly special about spring and fall camping – plus, you can take advantage of our non-peak deals! 

What is there to do in the area?

While we’ve got tons of fun inside our Camp-Resort, there’s also a lot to explore in the area! Learn about the Antietam National Battlefield, check out the Crystal Grottoes Caverns, or take a visit to Baltimore, Maryland. See all of our nearby attractions on our Places to Go page

Looking for more camping tips and tricks? Check out online booking platform Campspot for tons of articles on where to visit, road trip routes, camping recipes, and more on their Camp Guide.
