With so many new people visiting Jellystone Park™ Luray this year, and folks camping for the first time ever, we thought we’d answer some common questions! So if you’re a camping novice or long time Jellystone Park™ enthusiast, we’ve got answers!

Why should I take my family camping rather than buy a day pass?

Staying at Jellystone Park™ opens up a whole new set of activities that go beyond what a day at the water park can provide! Evenings at our park feature glow dance parties, movie nights, and so much more fun. Don’t forget to pick up a scavenger hunt map at the Ranger Station so you can look for the clues and find the secret message during your stay! Once you factor in the cost of a day pass into your nightly rate, you’ll see that camping is the best bang for your buck! Plus, what’s better than having a place to crash like a cabin or your RV site after a busy day on the water?

Is the water park included in my stay?

Absolutely! Every guest on your reservation will receive a wristband, which is your ticket to fun throughout the entirety of your stay! Fly down our water slides, splash in one of our 4 pools, and explore our huge interactive water playground. Don’t forget to stop by our 18-hole mini-golf, zip line, and jumping pillow as well – there’s no additional fee for these activities!

What should I take with me?

If you’re staying in one of our cabins, make sure to pack bed sheets and bathroom linens. Don’t feel like packing your linens? You can add them onto your stay as an add-on when you book your stay! You’ll also get to enjoy your own charcoal grill, so pack up your grilling tools and favorite cookout ingredients! If you’re staying in a camping cabin or tent site, don’t forget to bring a cooler with ice! You can also stock-up on ice and other essentials at the Ranger Station!

Other items to bring:

-Card & board games

-Umbrellas in case it rains

-Bug spray & sunscreen

-Marshmallow roasters & s’more ingredients

Which season is best for camping?

Our most popular time of the year is summer when our water park is open. Spring camping is great for families who want to reconnect with nature and enjoy a quieter, less crowded park! During the fall, we have fun themed weekend planed with activities like trick-or-treating and hayrides! Tried and true campers know that there is something truly special about fall camping and watching the seasons change, plus you can take advantage of our non-peak deals!

What is there to do in the area?

While we’ve got tons of fun inside the park, there’s also a lot to explore in the area! Rent a canoe, kayak, raft, and tube at the Downriver Canoe Company, take a tour of the breathtaking Luray Caverns, or test your space-knowledge at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. See all of our nearby attractions on our Places to Go page!
