Another summer camping season has come and gone, and boy oh boy was it a good one! We love the hustle & bustle of Jellystone Park™ during the summer and being able to welcome campers, both old and new! From Memorial Day – Labor Day, we had tons of fun in the sun and made great memories while we were at it! While there are lots of things we enjoy about the summer season such as warm weather, splashing in the Water Zone all day long, making s’mores over the campfire, and more, here are some of our favorite things that took place this summer!

Best Vacation Ever Photo Contest

This summer was our 2nd annual “Best Vacation Ever” photo contest at Jellystone Park™, and we had so many great submissions! We loved seeing all of the creative photos that our campers came up with during their stay! Congratulations to this year’s winner of $150 camp credit! Thanks to everyone who participated, we can’t wait to see what y’all come up with next year!

Nighttime Pool Parties

On select nights throughout the summer, our activities team put together fun nighttime glow pool parties proving that the fun doesn’t stop after the sun goes down!

Death by Chocolate Week

There are not very many things that are better than chocolate—eating it or slip ‘n sliding in it! Death by Chocolate Week is definitely a favorite amongst our campers…and Yogi Bear™, too!


Although we are sad to say “So long!” to this summer, we can’t wait for all of the good times to come next year! Camping throughout the year at Jellystone Park™ is bound to be a blast, but the summer season holds a special place in our hearts. Get a head start and book your summer 2019 vacation today!
