We’ve been waiting all year, and now the sunny season is upon us. The leaves are green, the water feels great, and it’s the perfect time for camping…but that’s not all that we’re excited about here at Jellystone Park™ Golden Valley! With a new summer comes many other things to look forward to, and we’ve been working hard to ensure that this season is one for the books. Keep reading to see the 5 things that we’re most excited about this summer!

water zone

1. Interactive Water Playground – Complete with 165-foot long water slides, two kiddie water slides, 13 water blasters, two water cannons, and a 750 gallon hydrostorm bucket that periodically dumps 750 gallons of water on anyone standing beneath it—our water playground is sure to provide hours of fun for all our campers! It opens daily starting June 11! Visiting before then? Check out our guest dashboard for the most current hours of operation.

2. Fishing – Drop a line into our lake from the shoreline, kayak, or a canoe. No license is required (but please catch and release). Bring fishing supplies or purchase them at the Ranger Station on-site!

3. Campfires – We can just imagine the nostalgic smell of the campfire right now! And what makes a campfire even better? S’mores of course! Our summer bucket list includes creating some of the most unique versions of this gooey classic. What do you like to add to your s’more recipe? We’re excited to try some we found here.

4. Hiking – Our Camp-Resort has a variety of trails throughout so that you can truly get in touch with nature this summer!

5. Scavenger hunts – We have clues hidden around the park that reveal a new message this year. Pick up a free map at the Registration Station or Ranger Station and see if you can solve the riddle!

Now are you excited to return to Jellystone Park™ this summer? So are we. Book your summer stay today and join us for another incredible time at camp! Between our swimming pool, daily activities, and summer events, you’ll never be at a loss for something to look forward to. Don’t forget to bring your sunscreen, tennis shoes, and beach towel! We can’t wait to see you on check-in day!
