There are many glamping options at Jellystone Park™ Lazy River in New York.

Sleeping Accommodations

Before you choose which glamping cabin is best for you, you must first learn about the cabin's sleeping accommodations. Learning how many people your cabin can sleep is crucial to finding the perfect glamping cabin!

At Jellystone Park™ Lazy River, we have 12 luxury cabin types to choose from. Talk about options! If you have a small family, our Cozy Cabins (sleeps 4) is a great option. If you have a mid-sized family, check out our Cottages, Cottages with Loft, and Riverfront Premium Cottages - they all sleep up to 6 people! Or, if you have a larger family, we recommend booking one of our Bevier Lodge, 2-Bedroom Ridge View Bungalows, Shawangunk Premium Cabins, Hillside Premium Lofts, Hudson Valley Forest Cabins, or 2-Bedroom Bungalows as they all sleep anywhere from 8-10 people!

Glamping in New York can include amenities like a full kitchen and bathroom.


In general, it's good to note if your glamping rental includes a full kitchen and bathroom so that you can plan ahead of time what you need to bring. Lucky for you, all of the glamping options at Jellystone Park™ Lazy River include a bathroom, so there's no need to worry about leaving your cabin in case of an emergency! As for kitchens, our glamping cabins are equipped with either a kitchenette (no sink), kitchen (no oven), or kitchen (oven).

For those looking to book a cabin rental that includes a kitchenette but no need for a sink, we recommend booking one of our Cozy Cabins. If you're looking to book a glamping cabin with a little more luxury, our Cottages, Ridge View Bungalows, and Riverfront Premium Cottages have a full kitchen, but no oven. Lastly, our 2-Bedroom Ridge View Bungalows, Shawangunk Premium Cabins, Bevier Lodge, Hudson Valley Forest Cabins, Hillside Premium Loft Cabins, and 2-Bedroom Bungalows are the definition of pure luxury as they have a full kitchen with an oven.
