Need to get away from it all?

Sometimes, we’re too busy even to start planning that vacation we need so badly. But if you’re feeling overwhelmed, overworked, and under-relaxed, a trip to Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park™ Camp-Resort in Luray, Virginia might be just the cure for what ails you.

Our park is located amongst the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains, only a short drive from the popular Luray Caverns and the scenic Shenandoah National Park.

And don’t worry – although our locale will be a well-deserved relaxing reprieve for you, the kids will be anything but bored. Because at Jellystone, when it comes to family fun…well, we’ve honestly thought of just about everything.

Campers young and old can enjoy swimming and splashing at Yogi Bear’s Water Zone & Splash Pad or zooming down our 400-foot long waterslide, puttering around our mini golf course, bouncing on our jump pillow and fishing in our very own dedicated pond. We’ve also got a game room arcade and cable TV hookups at many of our campsites for those who might be more “indoorsy.”

So, excited enough that you’re already closing your laptop and reaching for your suitcase?

Here’s what you need to know about renting an RV to come stay with us in Luray.


It’s not hard to find camping trailers for rent at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park™ Luray. Rather, the question is how to figure out exactly what kind of travel trailer or motorhome you’re looking for.

If you’ve operated an RV in the past, you probably know a few of the key differences between different models. But just in case you’re a newcomer, here are some basic pros and cons of various different types of vehicles.

Motorhomes include Class A, Class B, and Class C coaches, all of which are self-powered and usually include sleeping quarters, restroom and shower facilities, and some sort of kitchen — or at least a mini fridge in the case of small sleeper vans.

Travel trailers, on the other hand, are built to be towed by a separate vehicle — usually a large truck or SUV. This can be a convenience, since you’ll have a vehicle with you to use to explore the area outside of the campground… but it can be a hassle if you don’t already drive one of these vehicles on a regular basis.

Both categories of campers come in a variety of shapes, makes, and sizes. But how do you get your hands on one?

The best place to start is to search for rental agencies and dealerships in your area. No matter where in the country you’re starting from, there are sure to be at least a few different RV rental options. (It’s such a convenient and fun way to travel, it’s no surprise it’s gained popularity!)

Another option if you want to rent a camper at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park™ Luray is to check out the peer-to-peer RV rental marketplace through websites like RVshare. This unique model matches private RV owners, whose rigs aren’t currently in use, with campers like you. The RV’s owners get to make some extra cash off a vehicle that would have been simply sitting empty, and you get to see the world in a rental rig that’s anything but sterile and corporate. Win win, right?

Plus, since these RVs are actually lived in, vacationed in and loved, they tend to be very well maintained and comfortably appointed. No more drab, all-white-everything like you’d find in a commercial vehicle!


Everyone needs to cut loose from time to time. But even when you’re on vacation, you still have to pay attention to your budget.

So you may be wondering, “How much is it to rent an RV at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park™ Luray?”

Well, unfortunately, there’s no cut and dried answer. The cost of your RV rental will depend on a variety of factors, including how large and luxurious it is as well as where or who you rent it from.

Generally, big Class A motorhomes can fetch as much as $200 per night for rental, or sometimes even more. Smaller RVs can be found more on the order of $100 per night, and sometimes less.

Keep in mind that when you choose a rental from a peer-to-peer market, like RVshare, the odds of finding a great deal are in your favor. After all, most of the RV owners who list their rigs there are regular families who don’t have to foot the expensive overhead cost of running a business.

No matter where you rent your RV from, don’t forget to factor in the cost of fuel, food, and mileage if your rental agency charges for it. You might also be responsible for a large, but refundable, security deposit, which will be returned to you when you drop off the vehicle in the same condition you got it!


We can’t wait to help you create lifelong memories here at our park. Whether you spend your days splashing under the summer sun, exploring the local attractions, hiking the endless trails in Shenandoah National Park or even just enjoying each other’s company by the campfire, we’re here to bring old fashioned family fun back into style — and to help make your vacation better any way we can.

See you soon!
