Here at Jellystone Park™ Golden Valley, we have 5 group cabin options: Luckadoo Lodge, Richland Mountain Retreat, Sassafras Ridge Lodge, and Rippling Waters Lodge, sleeping anywhere from 13 to 16 people depending on the cabin!

This cabin still has a kitchenette which includes a refrigerator, microwave, sink, and stovetop which still makes it great for storing snacks or making something easy! In addition to the kitchenette, this cabin features a private bedroom, full bathroom, AC/heat, a screened-in porch, and more! 

If you're the type of camper that enjoys a full kitchen big enough to whip up tasty meals throughout your stay, our Lookout Loft Cabin, Sycamore Loft Cabin, or Hickory Forest Cabin are all great options!
