The sun and non-stop smiles on everyone’s faces – Jellystone Park locations offer outstanding outdoor attractions for the whole family, from the new and the novel to classic campground fun.
How low can your family go? Mini Golf brings out a fun and friendly competitive streak in everyone in the quest for the lowest score. Nearly all Jellystone Park™ campgrounds offer Mini Golf courses, some with 9 holes and others with a full 18. So grab a ball, putter, scorecard and tiny pencil – for a great time, Mini-Golf is a gimme.
Jumping Pillow & Jump Pad
What kid wouldn’t jump at the chance? Always a Jellystone Park vacation highlight, colorful, inflatable Jumping Pillows and Pads keep your kids hopped up and happy. Jumping Pillows are for the big kids, while the littles have giant-sized fun on the smaller Jump Pads designed just for them.
There’s always time for old-school fun. Every Jellystone Park™ has at least one playground that will entertain your kids for hours – larger parks typically have two or more. See your kids swing from the monkey bars, swirl down a circular slide, evade imaginary crocodiles as they cross a suspension bridge, climb a miniature rock wall, or slide down a fireman’s pole – you might even find yourself sliding back into some of your own childhood memories.
Take a hayride - or a “Hey” ride (benches instead of a hay bales) – through the park, singing songs, seeing sights, and waving to other friendly campers. Your kids might even get a special spot next to Yogi Bear™ or Boo Boo™ as one of them usually tags along!
Race or go at your own pace! People-powered pedal carts let you and your family challenge each other as you zip around the park (following the rules of road, of course). Or just go for a more leisurely spin in the sun. The wind in your hair, kids’ laughter in the air – it’s no wonder pedal cart rentals are one of the most popular attractions at Jellystone Park campgrounds.
It’s the kind of screen time parents don’t mind. Gather your gang for a magical moonlit movie night. Each Jellystone Park™ features a theater – either a big screen TV or actual movie theater style screen – to show cartoons and movies. Bring your chairs, pillows and blankets, a big bowl of popcorn and settle in to your favorite big-screen stars under the stars.
One more way to create treasured memories on your Jellystone Park vacation. Gem Mining lets kids “pan” for gems and fossils that they get to keep. First they purchase a supply of “mining rough”, then run it through a rustic mining sluice themselves where flowing water washes away the sand and grit to reveal their treasures. If you’re mining for a truly memorable vacation experience, you’ve just struck gold.
Up for a a game of high-tech hide-n-seek? Your kids will be beaming as you take on the competition in the great outdoors. Your mission is to get your adrenaline pumping and the fun flowing. Use trees and other obstacles to evade the enemy and protect your platoon, as you outsmart and outshoot the other team. For active, competitive families, Laser Tag is right on target.
You’ve got your dream team all together – it’s the perfect time for a game of basketball, volleyball, horseshoes and more. Score points with your kids by showing off your hidden skills. Or just build family spirit as you become each other’s biggest cheerleaders. Team sports vary from park to park but they all have one thing in common: friendly competition that’s a win-win for everyone.
