Searching for the next great vacation spot for you and your kids? At Jellystone Park™ Gardiner, there are countless reasons to choose us as your family’s next vacation destination. And although it was hard, we narrowed them down to our top five.

Check out why we think you should bring your kids to join us in the fun this season!


1. Options for Accommodations

Whether you are looking for somewhere to pitch your tent and really connect with nature, or something with a few more comforts of home, Jellystone Park™ has a spot for you. Our campsites are scattered along the banks of the beautiful Wallkill River and equipped with picnic tables and fire rings – perfect for stargazing and s’more-making. For a more luxurious stay, we also have cabins with full kitchens, bathrooms, and a hot tub. With 8 camp sites, 264 RV sites, and 61 Cabins, we have a multitude of options for campers, glampers, and everyone in between.

2. Abundance of Activities

Between bouncing around on the jumping pillow, running through the water zone, or competing in a friendly game of mini golf, your kids will stay busy outside from dawn ‘til dusk and will love every second of it. Your kids will also love taking part in all of our awesome themes throughout the season. Dress up and join our epic water gun battle for Pirates and Mermaids weekend, or enter our spooky site decorating contest for Halloween! Check out our full list of themes and events here.

3. Stellar Location

Although Jellystone Park™ Gardiner is equipped with enough entertainment that you may never want to leave, Lazy River NY is strategically placed a car ride away from many great nearby attractions. Hop in your car and check out numerous Revolutionary War historical sites, or travel 3 miles east and adventure through the Shawangunk Ridge Mountain Range with some hiking, rock climbing, or waterfall chasing.

4. Open Skies and Fresh Air

Ah, the great outdoors! Leave the iPhones, iPads, video games, and laptops at home and embrace the chance to escape the screens. Set on 100 lush acres overlooking the meandering Wallkill River and boasting a majestic view of the Shawangunk Ridge, our grounds are the ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy some time outdoors.

5. Bond with Your Family and Make New Memories

After a long day of running around in the sun, there’s nothing better than pulling up a chair next to a crackling campfire and cooking up a couple of s’mores with your family under the huge expanse of sky and stars and just enjoy one another’s company. Moments like this are rare in everyday life, so it’s nice to take a second and appreciate the small things like s’mores, stars, and laughter around a fire with your family and friends. After you spend some time at Jellystone Park™ Gardiner, you’ll start counting down the days until you can come back. We love having return campers, and your kids will love looking forward to coming back every year!
