The Mt. Washington Valley is home to many things, including Jellystone Park™ Glen Ellis! Knowing this, it’s probably no surprise that the area sees many visitors throughout the season. People here love to hike in the woods, float down the river, and roast marshmallows over the campfire…but did you know that there are many other fun things to do while you’re in town? Whether you’re looking for beautiful nature, a thrilling afternoon, or seeking out your new favorite pizza place, there are numerous ways to spend the day! Keep reading for 5 great things to do in the Mt. Washington Valley area while visiting Jellystone Park™.

Conway Scenic Railroad

If you’ve been to our Camp-Resort just once, then you’re no stranger to the Conway Scenic Railroad. This old-fashioned train regularly departs from it’s station in North Conway to make it’s way through the valley region. It even passes by our Camp-Resort! Next time you’re floating down the Saco in one of our tube rentals, be sure to keep an eye out for this unique locomotive — and wave “hello” to it’s passengers!

Glen Ellis Falls

There are so many beautiful sites to see both inside and outside our Camp-Resort, we couldn’t possibly mention them all. However, we would like to take this time to talk about one of our favorites! Glen Ellis Falls is just a short drive away from camp, and provides an absolutely breathtaking glimpse at the nature of the region. Here you will see a 64 ft waterfall cascading down from a cliff and into a deep green pool before continuing the flow of the Ellis River. You will need to hike to this location, which makes it perfect for an outdoor adventure!

Story Land

Are you looking for a day of excitement, and maybe a little fantasy? Look no further than Story Land! Story Land is a family-friendly amusement park located just over a mile away from camp. The park features over 30 attractions that anyone can enjoy, and brings many timeless tales to life in a creative way. Hop on the Roar-O-Saurus for a speedy coaster ride, get a sundae at the Dutch Village Ice Cream Shop, or even strike up a conversation with Cinderella (one of the many characters who roam the park).

Matty B’s Mountainside Cafe

While we’re planning to have a brand new food truck at our Camp-Resort this season, it’s also fun to get out and explore what the area has to offer. If we may make a suggestion — Matty B’s Cafe is our go-to spot for family dining! Just 5 minutes away from Jellystone Park™, Matty B’s offers a satisfying menu in a cool setting. Enjoy a slice of pizza while looking out towards Attitash and Bear Peak Mountains!

Mount Washington

We would be remiss if we didn’t mention the heart of the Mt. Washington Valley…Mt. Washington! This mountain is home to many attractions, and is the highest peak in the Northeastern United States, standing at 6,288.2 ft! Have we “peaked” your interest? There are a variety of activities to do here and we hope you can try at least one of them. Stop by the Mt. Washington Observatory to learn something new, or take a hike up the Tuckerman Ravine Trail to catch the amazing view from the summit!

 

Between all of these incredible attractions near our Camp-Resort, you’re guaranteed to never hear the words “I’m bored” during your vacation. There’s something for every family member to enjoy in the Mt. Washington Valley region, and we encourage you to try something new for your next visit!

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!
