Stay safe. Stay sane. Get outside.

What we’re doing to ensure a safe getaway

A letter from our team

To our valued campers,
It is our goal to offer you some much needed rest and relaxation during this trying time. Camping in the great outdoors is one of the safest activities to do right now, and we’re so glad we’re able to provide families with a place to make long-lasting memories! Here at Jellystone Park™, we are doing everything we can to provide our guests with a safe stay that is still full of fun! To help keep our guests and team members safe, we have enhanced sanitation measures that include frequent cleaning and disinfecting of areas throughout the entire Camp-Resort. To ensure our guests have the best vacation ever, we have a variety of available attractions to keep everyone entertained, while staying safe, from dawn to dusk. We, along with Yogi Bear™ & friends, look forward to welcoming you!
Your Jellystone Park™ Team

Before your arrival

  • To promote as little contact as possible during check-in, campers will receive a “It’s Time to Check-In” email the day before arrival to agree to the Terms & Conditions and make any final payments online. If you are a future arrival, you may complete these items in advance by locating the email titled, “Reservation Confirmation” and navigating to your confirmation link.
  • Look out for an email from our Jellystone Park™ team titled “Your Upcoming Stay Information!” In this email you will have more current information regarding your stay. You’ll get information on what fun scheduled activities are available, and other helpful information for your stay.
  • If you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, do not come.
  • In addition to your regular packing list, bring hand sanitizer and other cleaning equipment, a mask (if you are not fully vaccinated), s’more ingredients, and anything else to help you have a safe and fun vacation.
  • Talk to your kids about social distancing. Here are some tips to aid in your conversations.
  • Download the Jellystone Park™ app prior to your arrival. With the app, you’ll be able to check out the most up-to-date attraction information, receive text alerts about events happening around the Camp-Resort, and more! Psst…once you’ve downloaded the app, click on the map pin to access our information!

At check-in

  • Upon arrival, please proceed to our Registration Station to check-in. You will receive wristbands for everyone in your group (please wear these at all times so we know who our registered campers are) and a car pass for your vehicles. Visit our Guest Dashboard for up-to-date info on hours of operation, daily activities, on-site dining, and more!
  • Maintain social distancing with our staff and follow guidelines as they help you to your cabin or campsite. We appreciate your patience as we help everyone through check-in as quickly and safely as possible.
  • If you have rented a golf cart for your stay, the staff member will assist you in picking one up.

During your stay

Though we are very excited to welcome you to our Camp-Resort to enjoy the great outdoors, we ask that you follow the below guidelines in place by the Governor of North Carolina. Please do your part to help keep everyone (you and your family, fellow campers, our beloved Bears, and our staff) safe.

  • Masks are not required for fully vaccinated guests. If you are not fully vaccinated, we ask that you wear a mask in all buildings and when guests are within 6ft of another person who is not part of their reservation (both inside and outside).
      • Guests do not need to wear masks when at their cabins or campsites as long as only the people in their reservation are on the site.
      • Masks do not need to be worn in the pool area.
      • Masks do not need to be worn while at the sports courts or boating.
      • Masks are not required but recommended for those who are not fully vaccinated during Lazer Tag sessions and “Hey Hey” Rides.
  • Practice social distancing by keeping a distance of 6-feet from anyone not in your group.

HOW WE’RE ENSURING YOUR SAFETY DURING YOUR STAY

We have implemented several initiatives throughout our Camp-Resort to ensure the safety of our campers and our staff.

  • We have added additional signage throughout our Camp-Resort to remind everyone about social distancing, good hygiene practices, and other guidelines that are in place.
  • Sanitizer stations are located throughout the Camp-Resort.
  • Express check-out process is automatic for all guests to minimize contact.
  • Cash-free methods of payment are available and encouraged.
  • We are using disinfectant throughout the Camp-Resort when cleaning and sanitizing.
  • Staff have been trained on specific COVID-19 procedures based on OSHA and CDC guidelines.
  • Water Zone:
      • The CDC states, “There is no evidence that COVID-19 can spread to people through the water used in pools, hot tubs, or water playgrounds. Proper operation and disinfection of pools, hot tubs, and water playgrounds should kill the virus that causes COVID-19.”
      • Limit close contact with people outside your home in public spaces, both in and out of the water.
      • All campers must shower prior to using the swimming pool and water amenities.
      • Social distancing must be practiced. Our staff monitor these areas to ensure campers are keeping themselves and others safe.
      • EPA approved chemicals are used and safety protocols meet or exceed industry standards.
      • Chairs, loungers, tables, and cabanas are sanitized twice a day.
      • For a full list of what we’re doing to keep you safe while at the pool, click here.
  • Attractions
      • We’ve modified your favorite attractions to make them safe for everyone to enjoy.
      • We’re utilizing the Jellystone Park™ app to communicate event updates.
  • Food & Beverage
    • To make sure you’re staying safe while enjoying some delicious food at our on-site dining facilities, we have enhanced our cleaning procedures. Here’s what we’re doing:
      • Single use condiments are utilized whenever possible.
      • Cleaning of high touch surfaces frequently (doors, ordering windows/counters, etc.)
      • Following all proper food handling procedures.
      • Offering cash-free methods of payment.
    • Cabins & Lodges
      • Glamping is a great way to enjoy a vacation but with all the comforts of home! View what we’re doing to ensure a safe getaway at your cabin or lodge here.

Stay informed

For more detailed information about COVID-19, how it spreads, prevention and treatment, learn more here.

Also, the CDC has updated their country index page where you can find up-to-date COVID-19 risk assessments by country.


As more information becomes available, we will continue to make adjustments to support the safety and well-being of guests and our team members.

It’s important to know, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions are at higher risk from COVID‑19. A risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place, including Jellystone Park™.

Stay sane. Get outside.
