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! You can learn more about golf cart rentals here. If you have a disability, you can bring your own golf cart, however, you must provide documentation for insurance and have a handicap placard.
Do you offer early check-in or later check-out?
Yes we do. We offer early and extended access for a fee.
Early access (before check-in time) does not guarantee site/cabin will be ready or available at time of arrival.
Extended access (after check-out time) does not guarantee guest will be able to stay on site/in cabin until departing from the Camp-Resort. Early access/extended access only guarantees access to the Camp-Resort and attractions, which requires parking in overflow. Access is based on availability – please call for info. We absolutely cannot accommodate access before 11am, so please plan your travel accordingly. Click to learn more about our cabin and campsite policies.
