Did you know a camping trip to Jellystone Park™ can improve your health? Turns out the fun attractions, cozy accommodations, and a beautiful lake aren’t the only reasons to plan a vacation here! Science has proven that getting outside and camping is a great way to improve your health. Keep reading to learn 5 reasons why a visit to Jellystone Park™ Golden Valley is great for your mental and physical health! 

 

Ditch your usual schedule! 

Escape the stress of your everyday life! Spend your whole day relaxing by the pool, or fill your day with fun events we plan for you (so you don’t have to!) – whatever makes you feel relaxed! Visit our events and daily activities page here to see all the fun things you can do at Jellystone Park™.

Improve your mood with some vitamin D. 

Mental health is just as important as physical health! Spending time in the sun increases your serotonin levels, which in return can help lessen anxiety and depression. Suffering from insomnia? Serotonin is also known to contribute to a restful sleep at night. With all the added benefits of spending time in the sun, being outdoors will definitely boost your mood. Just don’t forget your sunscreen! 

Up your exercise! 

Camping at Jellystone Park™ provides lots of opportunities to get your body moving in the fresh air. Spend your day playing sports, swimming in the lake, doing tricks on the jumping pillow, or racing your friends on bicycles. The more you move, the happier & healthier you’ll feel! 

Lower your screen time.

Did we mention our favorite health benefit? A technology detox! Camping is a great way to unplug from your phone for a few days. We have tons of outdoor attractions at Jellystone Park™, from the Water Zone, to mini golf, to gem mining, there is always something fun & technology-free to do here! 

Make new friends! 

Sharing stories around the campfire, doing a craft together, and Yogicizing with our Bears are just a few of the excellent ways to make a new friend here at Jellystone Park™. Spending quality time with your friends, old and new, is sure to make you feel great! 

We encourage you to spend as much time as you can in the beautiful outdoors while you’re here. Start planning your trip to Jellystone Park™ Golden Valley today. Your mind, body, and spirit will thank you for it! We can’t wait to see you!
