The owner, Rick and his family make this steep sloped park a great stop for a few nights. It is far enough out of Estes Park that we felt that nature was around us. In fact a herd of bull Elk munched their way through a thicket across the road and gave us thirty minutes of awe. This place is great
Tent camping with kids was a success
We originally wanted to tent camp in Rocky Mountain National Park but there were no spots available anywhere, so we stayed here instead. The tent camping area was located well, on an out-of-the way hill, with an easy walk to the bathrooms, pool, camp store, etc. Everything was well-maintained and family friendly, and the staff was helpful and kind. Complimentary coffee in the camp store saved me from major caffeine withdrawal. Would definitely stay here again if we make it out that way!
Wonderful Atmosphere and Staff
We arrived at Jellystone in torrential rain. We were planning on tent camping, but as none of us were seasoned campers asked for a cabin. We were only staying one night and they were able to accommodate us. The cabin was nice. We were able to swim in the outdoor pool (during a rain break). We got to see all the chipmunks (very cute). The best part of our stay though was the kind and considerate staff. My son wanted to build a fire. The rain had taken a break and we went to get firewood at the Ranger Station. They had just closed. Two Staff members were at the Game Room and I asked if there was any way to get firewood. They said sure! A gentleman took the wood to our cabin for us. I followed the other staff member to the Ranger Station to pay and she said I could pay the next day. My son LOVED the fire and we got to make a great memory! I would stay here again and recommend Jellystone to anyone in the area!
