Update your Pet’s Vaccinations

In order to be healthy and safe, staying up to date on vaccinations is a must when camping with your pet. Visit the veterinarian before your stay to make sure your pet is ready to go. You can also view Jellystone Park’s pet waiver here.

Make a Supplies List

Just like you, pets need to pack too! Make a list of essentials that your pet will need during your camping trip and check them off as you pack. Always bring extra food, water, bowls, and toys. Don’t forget the treats!

Use Pick-Up Bags

No one likes a messy campground. Keep your cabin or campsite clean by packing pick-up bags to clean up after your pet. Make sure to keep them handy at all times!

Pack a Crate

Figuring out sleeping arrangements is a must! Pack a crate for them to stay in so they feel comfortable in your cabin or campsite. A relaxed pet is a healthy pet!

Visit the Bark Park

One of the reasons that makes Jellystone Park™ so unique is our very own Bark Park! Bring your pup to our fenced-in park for some well-deserved exercise. They’ll love exploring the various obstacles and toys, as well as playing with the other dogs too!

Use a Leash

When walking around the campground, make sure to keep your pet on a leash at all times. This will ensure no dogs are wandering around the campground unattended. Plus, your pet will get to experience everything Jellystone Park™ has to offer right by your side!
