What is good camping etiquette?

If you’re a first time camper, you may have some questions on the best camping etiquette. Check our how to be a good neighbor, stay safe during your trip, and more, here.

Is there Wi-Fi?
We do and it’s free to connect! The signal strength may vary throughout the Camp-Resort.
Can I bring my pet with me?

Yes! Pets are allowed at our RV sites. Pets are not allowed in cabins or at tent sites, at our playgrounds, Comfort Stations, or other buildings. Guests or visitors may not bring pets with them. If they arrive with a pet, they may not be permitted to enter the Camp-Resort. Pet owners must keep their pet leashed at all times and are responsible for noise control and clean-up. We reserve the right to remove hostile or disruptive pets from the park. You can view our pet waiver here.

CAN I BRING MY OWN GOLF CART, MOTORIZED SCOOTER, OR ATV TO THE CAMP-RESORT?

For safety and liability reasons, guests are not permitted to bring any personal motorized vehicles, such as golf carts, into Jellystone Park™. While we do not like to be the fun police, but guests found in violation of this policy may be asked to leave without refund. For your convenience, we do offer golf cart rentals that allow accessing our Camp-Resort easy…and fun!

CAN I BRING MY OWN BOAT OR WATER CRAFT?

For safety and liability reasons, we do not allow guests to bring their own boat, canoe, kayak, stand-up paddle board, or any other type of water craft. We do offer water rentals though! You can learn all about them here.

Where do I get firewood?
We have firewood available for purchase at our Ranger Station. Campers are not allowed to bring their own firewood due to regulations from the Indiana Department of Agriculture. To preserve the beauty of our wooded Camp-Resort, please do not cut down or damage trees in any way.
What is the speed limit?
Because the Camp-Resort is full of active families with children and there is mountainous terrain, the speed limit throughout the Camp-Resort is 5.5 MPH and is strongly enforced for your safety. We realize that this is ridiculous. If you do not feel that you are driving ridiculously slow, then you are driving too fast.
What is the cancellation policy?

For full cancellation policies for cabins and campsites, please visit our Rules & Policies pages:

Cabin Rules & Policies

Campsite Rules & Policies

What are the quiet hours?
We do! Quiet hours are: 11PM – 8AM, daily. Any guest under 18 years of age must be at their campsite or cabin during these hours, unless accompanied by an adult.
Do you allow fireworks?

With the exception of sparklers, fireworks are not allowed in Jellystone Park™.

ARE ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES ALLOWED?

They are, but the beverage must be held in an unmarked container or koozie. This is a family-friendly Camp-Resort, so please be considerate of others and refrain from loud and unseemly language.

CAN I SMOKE AT THE PARK?

Since we are a family Camp-Resort, smoking, including vaping, of any kind is not permitted in common and indoor areas, including but not limited to the pool area, playgrounds, pavilions, and all buildings. Smoking is not permitted within 50 feet of any building entrance. Smoking is not permitted inside cabins or on cabin porches, but is permitted outside at cabin sites. Smoking is permitted at campsites, but must be confined to your designated site. Please dispose of all cigarette butts. Smoking of any substances besides tobacco and vaporizers will not be tolerated. Management reserves the right to fine violators of this policy.
