There’s just something about camping together as a family that makes for simply awesome memories – memories your children will keep for a lifetime! We may be biased, of course, but we believe spending time outdoors in family campgrounds makes for far more wonderful memories than staying in hotel rooms.
Vacationing at a Jellystone Park is Just Plain Better
Why? Well, let us count the ways how enjoying an outdoor family vacation at Jellystone Park is better than vacationing in a hotel.
- What’s better, opening your hotel door to see…the hallway? Or unzipping your tent or opening the door of your RV to see…green trees?! The sunrise! Lakes! Trails! Blue sky! We choose blue skies.
- What do you do in a hotel room? A lot of sitting and watching TV while waiting for everyone to get ready. In a campground, you can take a short hike before breakfast. Jump in the lake after lunch. Roast s’mores over the campfire while telling ghost stories after dinner. Camping means more physical activity , too. Fishing, hiking, canoeing, swimming, biking, taking a paddleboat out for a spin, or racing down a waterslide!
- Traveling with a group? Families traveling together sometimes need to sleep in separate hotel rooms where the only common place to gather is the hotel lobby. But at our family campgrounds, you can book a tent campsite, RV site or cabin next to each other. You’ll be able to share a campfire, have a cookout, and star gaze at night sitting in your camp chairs. It’s so much better than watching TV in a hotel chain’s room!
Camping for Everyone
We’re so gung-ho about making sure our guests have the greatest of times in the great outdoors that Jellystone Park family vacation destinations have been designed to make camping as easy as possible for your entire family – from the little ones, to Mom and Dad, aunts and uncles, and Grandma and Grandpa.
Because we want you to enjoy the outdoors – and not be uncomfortable in it – we offer families a variety of camping resources. From tent campsites (both primitive and those with electricity) to RV campsites (available with water, electric and sewer hook-ups; most having 30-amp service and some with 50-amp), to vacation rentals (rustic and deluxe cabins, plus yurts and teepees), there is an accommodation to fit every camping style!
While campers enjoy all that nature has to offer, we understand that family campgrounds today aren’t complete without more "modern" activities. That’s why Jellystone Park campgrounds offer your family the chance to enjoy mini-golf, wagon rides, playgrounds, game rooms, pedal carts, horseshoes and much more.
Our family vacation destinations also provide you with theme weekends , appearances by Yogi Bear™, Boo Boo™, Cindy Bear™ and Ranger Smith™, as well as DJs, karaoke, laser tag, bingo, arts and crafts, tuck-ins, birthday parties, and more.
