Another summer camping season has come and gone, and boy oh boy was it a good one! We love the hustle & bustle of Jellystone Park™ during the summer and being able to welcome campers, both old and new! From Memorial Day to Labor Day, we had tons of fun in the sun and made great memories while we were at it! Though there are tons of things we love about the summer season like warm weather, splashing in the Water Zone all day long, and making s’mores over the campfire, we’ve narrowed down some of our favorite things that took place this summer!

Best Vacation Ever Photo Contest

This summer was our 2nd annual “Best Vacation Ever” photo contest at Jellystone Park™, and we had so many great submissions! We loved seeing all of the creative photos that our campers came up with! The winning photo was of these campers having fun with their furry friend—congratulations! They won $150 of camp credit! Thank you to everyone else who participated, and we can’t wait to see what y’all come up with next year!

New Water Slides

Our new water slides provided hours of fun in the sun this summer! Whether you chose to slide down the Virginia Vortex, Mountain Match-Up, Luray Loop-De-Loop, or all 3, there was some wet ‘n wild fun had!

Nathan’s Famous

Known for their delicious hot dogs, this world famous restaurant has locations across the globe, products in every supermarket in America, millions of fans, and this summer, joined Jellystone Park™ Luray! In additional to the delicious hot dogs, campers got to enjoy french fries with tons of toppings, burgers, chicken tenders, hot dog nuggets, corn dogs, lemonade, and orangeade. We’re already hungry for next summer!

Petting Zoo

We were so happy to welcome back Heavenly Heart Farm and their petting zoo this summer. With over 30 animals such as a miniature horse, miniature pot belly pig, silky fainting goats, bunnies, chickens, a ferret, and sugar gliders, our campers got to enjoy some fun, furry-friend time this summer!

Although we are sad to say “so long!” to the summer, we can’t wait for all of the good times to come next year! Camping throughout the year at Jellystone Park™ is bound to be a blast, but the summer season holds a special place in our hearts. Get a head start and book your Summer 2019 vacation today!
