BLOG

As domestic travel becomes increasingly safer, and we slowly move towards returning to “normal”, campers & glampers alike are itching to get back on the road and start planning their vacations. While the future of travel has been hard to predict recently, we did our best to pull together some trends we plan to see in the upcoming year!

Based on a survey of our Instagram followers, along with data from online booking site Campspot, these predictions show how the emergence from COVID-19 will influence travelers’ plans, destinations, and goals.

TIME TO START PLANNING

51% of you still have to work out the details of your vacation! We understand that with travel restrictions it’s a little bit tougher to plan in advance, but it’s been proven that outdoor vacations are the safest way to get away. So, it may be time to put pen to paper and start thinking seriously about your upcoming vacation – the earlier you book, the more options you have for site types, dates, and add-ons!

STAYING CLOSE TO HOME

For those of us traveling this year, 69% percent are planning to stay close to home. Who doesn’t love a good staycation! You don’t need to get on a plane to explore somewhere new. Plus, there are tons of great surrounding attractions near our Camp-Resort. Check out all of our recommendations here!

TRYING SOMETHING NEW
62% of you told us that you were planning on returning to an old favorite vacation spot this year! While there are plenty of must-have classic camping opportunities at our campground, why not try something new at Jellystone Park™? Even if you’ve stayed with us before, try camping during a different themed week, try a new cabin or campsite type, or rent a new add-on. Plus, we’ve added a couple new things this year – read about them here.
RELAXING TRUMPS EDUCATIONAL

We don’t blame you. 95% of you are looking to relax on your vacation instead of making it an educational trip for your family. Well good thing for you, there are endless ways to relax! Stake out some chairs at the swimming pool and park it for an afternoon, camp out around the fire as the sun goes down, or read a book at your campsite with the sun on your face. It’s time to R-E-L-A-X!

LENGTH OF TRIP

76% of you are planning for a week long trip, while the remainder are planning a weekend getaway. No matter how long you’re looking to stay, we have a deal to save you some money when you book! Check out all of our deals here. Plus, we have fun themes no matter the length of your getaway – check out all our themed weeks and weekends here.

STAYING OUTSIDE

When it comes to a camping trip vs. a city trip, 92% of you said you’d prefer camping to a hotel, and 97% said exploring the outdoors over the city. We agree! The city can be crowded, now’s the time to look for wide open spaces with room to explore. Breathe in the fresh air!

Where do you align with these trends? Now’s the time to plan your outdoor camping vacation! Whether you’re pitching a tent, parking your RV, or glamping in a cabin at Jellystone Park™, isn’t it exciting to be thinking of your next trip? Start planning today by checking rates and availability here!

Dear campers, we have recently been made aware that our new Water Zone, which was previously anticipated to be ready in August, has experienced construction delays and will no longer be ready for use until 2022.⁠

This delay is beyond our control and can be attributed to the widespread material and labor shortages that so many heave dealt with this year. While this is disappointing news, we are happy to remind our guests of the many awesome attractions we already have at the park! Our mini golf course, swimming pool, jumping pillow, tubes on the river, and more are still ready and available to anyone camping with us.⁠

To make up for the Water Zone's absence this season, we will be making efforts to add as many opportunities for fun as we can. We've already lined up additional live entertainment such as bands, animal shows, wine tastings, and an LED dance show. We're also introducing new unique activities such as a dunk tank and large inflatable water slide! Please check out our weekly activity schedule or the Jellystone Park™ App to stay up to date with every exciting moment here at camp.⁠

We are so grateful for your understanding, and we're looking forward to spending the remainder of this incredible season with you!
