We’ve been waiting all year, and now the sunny season is upon us. The leaves are green, the water feels great, and it’s the perfect time for camping…but that’s not all that we’re excited about here at Jellystone Park™ Luray! With a new summer comes many other things to look forward to, and we’ve been working hard to ensure that this season is one for the books. Keep reading to see the 5 things that we’re most excited about this summer!

1. Water Slides – Calling all thrill seekers – we have 3 huge water slides just for you! Our water slides include a 197-foot long Virginia Vortex, 376-foot long Luray Loop-de-Loop, and finally a 222-foot long multi-lane mat racing water slide! Our slides open daily on June 11th. These thrilling rides and large swimming pool are sure to provide hours of fun for all our campers.

2. Fishing – See what you can catch at our fishing pond! Stocked with perch, bass, catfish, and bluegill, our pond is your ideal spot for some fishing fun. No license is required for the pond (but please catch and release).

3. Campfires – We can just imagine the nostalgic smell of the campfire right now! And what makes a campfire even better? S’mores of course! Our summer bucket list includes creating some of the most unique versions of this gooey classic. What do you like to add to your s’more recipe? We’re excited to try some we found here.

4. Fun Activities  – During the summer months we have daily activities and themed events for all to enjoy! Everyday we will have activities like Candy Bar Bingo, meet and greets with the Bears, arts & crafts, and so much more. To stay up to date on all of our daily activities make sure to download the Jellystone Park™ App or stop in and chat with us at the park to hear what fun activities we have planned!
