Enjoy our daily activities

During peak season, you can catch our incredible team members hosting daily activities and themed weekends like Christmas in July, Candy Bar Bingo, tie dye, Bear Visits, and so much more. Kiddos and parents of all ages will be sure to enjoy everything we have to offer! Want to take it a step further? Enhance your experience even more when you purchase one of our Fun Passes and gain access to all the best activities, while also getting the best deal. We’re always updating our activity schedule with more fun, so make sure to check out our Events and Daily Activities Page or download the Jellystone Park™ App to stay up to date on all the fun we’ve got planned. Don’t forget, during non-peak season our activities are limited to weekends only.

Take a break from every day office life

A vacation for the kids is a vacation for you too! Booking a stay during the week is the perfect excuse to take a break from the office or the hustle and bustle of every day life to enjoy some nature, sunshine, and make new family memories. If you’re dreaming of ultimate relaxation don’t forget to book one of our cabanas by the pool while the kids jump and play!

Experience less traffic

We all know that on vacation getting to the destination can be half the fun, however there is something to be said about bypassing some heavy traffic! Spending your vacation with us during the week will also mean spending less of your vacation in the car. Skip the weekend rush of being stuck bumper to bumper and replace it with a dip in the pool, a round of volleyball, an exciting game of mini golf, or one of our other amazing attractions.

Relax with smaller crowds

If crowds are not your thing, weekday camping is for you. During the week, our Camp-Resort has less campers allowing more room for you and your family to roam! Less people also means more booking availability. Do you have a dream cabin or campsite? By booking during the week, you’ll be able to have a larger selection of cabins and campsites to choose from, but don’t forget to lock-in your site to make sure you snag your favorite!

Save money with our weekday deals 

Last but certainly not least, you’ll save boat loads when you book a weekday stay. Choose between one of our weekday deals and save big! We even offer flash sales (hint hint) so you can save even more than normal. Such as our “Farewell to Summer” deal where you can save 35% off when you stay between August 29-September 3. But you better hurry…this awesome deal is only available until August 16! Don’t worry, if you miss out on this one, we’ve got other ways to save on your weekday vacation, check them out here. In addition to saving money with our deals, weekday rates are already lower compared to weekends or holidays.

So whether or not you choose to stay during the week or the weekend, or both if you really love vacationing at Jellystone Park™, you’ll be sure to make some amazing new memories with friends and family. If you’re ready to hop on the best vacation ever bandwagon and book your stay, check out our availability here! If you’ve got a specific weekend in mind, feel free to send us a direct message on Instagram or Facebook and someone from our team will happily give you a hand.
