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!
