It is our goal to offer you some much needed rest and relaxation during this trying time. Camping in the great outdoors is one of the safest activities to do right now, and we’re so glad we’re able to provide families with a place to make long-lasting memories!
Here at Jellystone Park™, we are doing everything we can to provide our campers with a safe stay that is still full of fun! To help keep our campers and staff members safe, we have enhanced sanitation measures that include frequent cleaning and disinfecting of areas throughout the entire Camp-Resort. To ensure our campers have the best vacation ever, we have a variety of available amenities and activities to keep our campers entertained, while staying safe, from dawn to dusk.
We, along with Yogi Bear™ & friends, look forward to welcoming you!
Your Jellystone Park™ Team
Before your arrival
To promote as little contact as possible during check-in, campers will receive a “It’s Time to Check-In” email the day before arrival to agree to the Terms & Conditions and make any final payments online. If you are a future arrival, you may complete these items in advance by locating the email titled, “Your Campspot Reservation Confirmation” and navigating to your confirmation link.
Look out for an email from our Jellystone Park team titled “Your Upcoming Stay Information!” In this email you will have more current information regarding your stay. You’ll read about modifications at the resort due to COVID-19, get information on what fun scheduled activities are available, and other helpful information for your stay.
If you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, do not come.
In addition to your regular packing list, (see here for some helpful reminders!) bring all your own sports equipment (basketballs, volleyball, tennis racquet/balls, gaga ball, fishing poles, etc.), pack hand sanitizer and other cleaning equipment, a mask (this is required to enter our Ranger Station), s’more ingredients, and anything else to help you have a safe and fun vacation.

Upon arrival, please proceed to our Ranger Station to check-in. You will receive a folder filled with information you’ll need for your stay. The folder will include: wristbands for everyone in your group (please wear these at all times so we know who our registered campers are), a car pass for your vehicles, a map of the Camp-Resort, and a booklet of helpful information such as current Camp-Resort modifications, guidelines, hours of operations, and occupancy standards set by state and local agencies.
Maintain social distancing with our staff and follow guidelines as they help you to your cabin or campsite. We appreciate your patience as we help everyone through check-in as quickly and safely as possible.
If you have rented a golf cart for your stay, the staff member will assist you in picking one up.

What can you do?
According to the CDC and the National Safety Council, and the WHO:
Wash your hands often – and thoroughly – with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
Alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content is a good secondary option
Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others in a public setting
If you are in a private setting and do not have your face cloth covering, remember to always cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing
Avoid touching your nose, mouth and eyes with unwashed hands
Avoid close contact with others especially those that are at a higher risk of getting very sick
Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others
Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces
For more detailed information about COVID-19, how it spreads, prevention and treatment, learn more here.
Also, the CDC has updated their country index page where you can find up-to-date COVID-19 risk assessments by country.
As more information becomes available, we will continue to make adjustments to support the safety and well-being of guests and our team members.
It’s important to know, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions are at higher risk from COVID‑19. A risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place, including Jellystone Park. There is no evidence that COVID-19 can spread to people through the water used in pools, hot tubs, or water playgrounds. Proper operation and disinfection of pools, hot tubs, and water playgrounds should kill the virus that causes COVID-19. Limit close contact with people outside your home in public spaces, both in and out of the water.
