WILL MY RESERVATION GUARANTEE A SPECIFIC CAMPSITE OR CABIN ASSIGNMENT?
We do offer you the opportunity to guarantee your favorite cabin or campsite location by paying our applicable lock-in fee. If you opt out of the lock-in fee, you are guaranteed your selected site or cabin type, but not the specific unit number. If you are booking an RV site, new park model cabin, or tent site for 2019, lock-in fees will not apply.
DO YOU OFFER EARLY CHECK-IN OR LATE CHECK-OUT?
Yes we do, however, early check-in and late check-out are based on availability and fees to do so are required. Arriving early does not guarantee that your cabin/campsite will be ready at that time. Late departure does not guarantee that you will be able to stay at the cabin/campsite until departing from the park. Early arrival/late departure only guarantees extended access to the Camp-Resort and Camp-Resort amenities.
DO YOU OFFER ANY DISCOUNTS?
We do! We offer great deals all season long! You can also follow us on Facebook to stay up-to-date on any seasonal deals and specials we’re offering. We do not accept AAA, Good Sams Club or any others.

WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT ARE ACCEPTED FOR MY RESERVATION?
We gladly accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express.
CAN I BRING MY PET WITH ME?
Yes! Pets are allowed at our campsites, but not at our playground, restrooms, or other buildings. There is a two pet max for campsites. Select cabins are pet-friendly for a nightly fee. One pet is $11/night (maximum of $44) and two pets are $16/night (maximum of $64). 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.
DO YOU HAVE QUIET HOURS?
We do! Quiet hours are:
10pm – 8am, Sunday – Thursday
11pm – 7am, Friday – Saturday
Any guest under 18 years of age must be at their site or cabin during these hours, unless accompanied by an adult.
ARE ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES ALLOWED?
They are, but the beverage must be held in an unmarked container or koozie. This is a family Camp-Resort, so please be considerate of others and refrain from loud and unseemly language.
WHERE DO I GET FIREWOOD?
We have firewood available for purchase at our Camp Store or Ranger 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.
WHAT IS THE SPEED LIMIT?
Because the Camp-Resort is full of active families with children, 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.
CAN I BRING MY OWN GOLF CART, MOTORIZED SCOOTER, OR ATV TO THE CAMP-RESORT?
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, 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!
CAN I SMOKE AT THE PARK?
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 50ft. 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. Smoking of any substances besides tobacco and vaporizers will not be tolerated. Management reserves the right to fine violators of this policy.
Do you have Wi-Fi?
We do, but the signal strength varies throughout the Camp-Resort. It’s best near the Lodge, Camp Store, and Lakeside Pavilion. We think this is the perfect time to disconnect and enjoy the great outdoors!
WHERE CAN I FIND INFORMATION ABOUT THEMED ACTIVITIES AT THE PARK?
Good question! We have a jam-packed calendar of themed weeks and weekends throughout the season. You can find a list of our upcoming themes HERE.
