When you think of a family vacation, what comes to mind? Quality time with the people you love, enjoying fun activities like swimming or putting around at mini golf, or enjoying the great outdoors? At Jellystone Park™, you can have it all and you can have it every single day! That’s right, when you stay with us you can enjoy the best vacation ever, every single day of the week. Keep reading to learn 5 reasons why weekday camping is BEARY awesome. 

Enjoy our fun attractions

Just because summer is coming to an end, doesn’t mean the fun stops at Jellystone Park™! Jump high to the sky on our jumping pillow, cast a line into the pond to see what you catch, get a hole-in-one at the mini golf course, or spend the day looking for clues for our scavenger hunt! Check out our full list of attractions here!

*Some attractions & facilities are only available during the weekdays during non-peak season (non-peak season begins September 7). 

Take a break from every day office life

A vacation for the kids is a vacation for you too! Booking a stay during the week is the perfect excuse to take a break from the office or the hustle and bustle of every day life to enjoy some nature, sunshine, and make new camping memories.

Experience less traffic

We all know that on vacation getting to the destination can be half the fun, however there is something to be said about bypassing some heavy traffic! Spending your vacation with us during the week will also mean spending less of your vacation in the car. Skip the weekend rush of being stuck bumper to bumper and replace it with a dip in the pond, a round of volleyball, an exciting game of mini golf, or one of our other amazing attractions.

Relax with smaller crowds

If crowds are not your thing, weekday camping is for you. During the week our Camp-Resort has less campers allowing more room for you and your family to roam! Less people also means more booking availability. Do you have a dream cabin or campsite? By booking during the week you’ll be able to have a larger selection of cabins and campsites to choose from, but don’t forget to lock-in your site to make sure you snag your favorite! 

Save money with our weekday deals 

Last but certainly not least, you’ll save boat loads when you book a week day stay. Choose between one of our weekday deals and save big! And did you know, we’re currently offering a LIMITED TIME DEAL for our weekday vacationers! Bid farewell to summer at Jellystone Park™ and enjoy up to 35% off! Simply book your stay between August 29th and September 3rd with promo code FAREWELL21. But you better hurry… this awesome deal is only available until August 16! Don’t worry, if you miss out on this one we’ve got other ways to save on your weekday vacation, check them out here. In addition to saving money with our deals, weekday rates are already lower compared to weekends or holidays. SCORE!

So whether or not you choose to stay during the week or the weekend (or both if you really love vacations) you’ll be sure to make some amazing new memories with friends and family. If you’re ready to hop on the best vacation ever bandwagon and book your stay, check out our availability here!
