Please view our Campsite Rules & Policies and our Cabin Rules & Policies for our cancellation policy information. The cancellation policy shall be amended in the event a natural disaster (i.e. Blizzard, Hurricane, or Tropical Storm Watch/Warning) is issued for the camp-resort area or the guest’s residence within 48 hours of the reservation arrival date OR when there is a mandatory evacuation of the area and the camp-resort will be closed.
For safety and liability reasons, we do not allow guests to bring their own boat, canoe, kayak, stand-up paddle board, or any other type of water craft. We do offer water rentals though! You can learn all about them here.
Yes! Pets are allowed at our RV sites and pet-friendly cabins, but not at our playgrounds, Comfort Stations, or other buildings. They are also not permitted at tent sites. There is a two pet max per site. Pet-friendly cabins require a nightly fee. One pet is $40 and two pets are $60. Guests or visitors may not bring pets with them. If they arrive with a pet, they may not be permitted to enter the Camp-Resort. Pet owners must keep their pet leashed at all times and are responsible for noise control and clean-up. We reserve the right to remove hostile or disruptive pets from the park. You can view our pet waiver here.

With the exception of sparklers, fireworks are not allowed in Jellystone Park™.
They are, but the beverage must be held in an unmarked container or koozie. This is a family-friendly Camp-Resort, so please be considerate of others and refrain from loud and unseemly language.
We have firewood available for purchase at our Ranger Station or Registration Station. Campers are not allowed to bring their own firewood due to regulations from the NC Department of Agriculture. To preserve the beauty of our wooded Camp-Resort, please do not cut down or damage trees in any way.
Because the Camp-Resort is full of active families with children and there is mountainous terrain, the speed limit throughout the Camp-Resort is 5MPH and is strongly enforced for your safety. We realize that this is ridiculous. If you do not feel that you are driving ridiculously slow, then you are driving too fast.
For safety and liability reasons, guests are not permitted to bring any personal motorized vehicles, such as golf carts, into Jellystone Park™. While we do not like to be the fun police, but guests found in violation of this policy may be asked to leave without refund. For your convenience, we do offer golf cart rentals that allow accessing our Camp-Resort easy…and fun!
Since we are a family Camp-Resort, smoking, including vaping, of any kind is not permitted in common and indoor areas, including but not limited to the pool area, playgrounds, pavilions, and all buildings. Smoking is not permitted within 50 feet of any building entrance. Smoking is not permitted inside cabins or on cabin porches, but is permitted outside at cabin sites. Smoking is permitted at campsites, but must be confined to your designated site. Please dispose of all cigarette butts. Smoking of any substances besides tobacco and vaporizers will not be tolerated. Management reserves the right to fine violators of this policy.
We do and it’s free to connect! The signal strength may vary throughout the Camp-Resort as we are in mountainous terrain. Service is best near the Registration Station, Scouts’ Table/Coffee Bar, and Ranger Station.
Good question! We have a jam-packed calendar of themed weeks and weekends throughout the season. You can find a list of our upcoming themed events here!
