Why You Need to Consider a Weekday Camping Trip

It's peak camping season, meaning that more and more people are itching to get outside and book their New York camping trip! The summer season brings many families to campgrounds all around the nation, and with that can cause longer wait times for attractions, large crowds, and even sold out weekends. To avoid this, have you considered booking a weekday camping trip? Weekday camping provides many benefits to both your health and your wallet! Check out 5 reasons why you should consider booking a weekday camping trip at Jellystone Park™ Lazy River this season.

Lower Rates

Weekday camping comes with many benefits, but perhaps the best benefit is the lower rates! Take advantage of these lower rates by booking one of our luxury cabin rentals, spacious RV sites, or rustic tent sites. Known as one of the best family campgrounds in New York, you can expect plenty of attractions included in your stay, too! Your family (and wallet) will thank you for choosing a weekday camping trip!

Secure Your Favorite Site

With fewer people at our New York campground and less competition in booking a site, your chances of selecting your favorite cabin or campsite number just got bigger! Many people choose to lock-in their site when booking their stay, and since many people book their summer camping trip months in advance, your favorite site may be gone before you're even considering taking a summer vacation! When weekday camping, your chances of securing that special site location or number is much higher and is one of the great reasons why you should consider booking a weekday camping trip!

Exclusive Weekday Deals

Many campgrounds, like our Hudson Valley campground, offer exclusive weekday deals to help campers save! Check out some of our peak season deals below:

Fewer People

Since many people wait to take vacations until the weekend comes, weekday camping means fewer people with lower (or no) wait times for attractions and facilities. Say goodbye to waking up early to get the best seat possible at the Water Zone - with fewer people, you won't have to worry about this dilemma! In addition to this, wait times will be much shorter when ordering food at the Tiki Snack Bar or ice cream at the Bear Outpost!

Camping Improves Your Mental Health

Say hello to the sunshine and goodbye to stress! The great outdoors provides your body with essential vitamins that help keep you energized, reduce stress levels, and increase restful sleep. There's no doubt your overall mood will be improved from a day in the sun! Plus, by booking a weekday camping trip, you'll get to escape the confines of the workplace environment and have fun while treating your body to the self care it's been craving. Best use of vacation days ever! Learn more about the benefits of camping here.
