With so many new people visiting Jellystone Park™ this year, and folks camping for the first time ever, we thought we’d answer some common questions! So if you’re a camping novice or long time Jellystone Park™ enthusiast, we’ve got answers!

ARE THE ATTRACTIONS INCLUDED IN MY STAY?

Absolutely, most of our attractions come included! 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 swimming pool, relax riverside, or take advantage of our playground. 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 can also stock-up on groceries and other essentials you may have forgot to pack at our 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. 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, 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! Explore the local hiking trails, spend the day at Story Land Amusement Park, or take a train ride on the Conway Scenic Railroad. See all of our nearby attractions on our Places to Go page!

Still have questions? Our team is happy to help and eager to welcome you to Jellystone Park™ Glen Ellis! Simply give us a call, send us an email, or message us on Facebook or Instagram. If you’re ready to book, you can find your spot today here!
