There's an all new water park in our area this summer and it's situated right inside one of the Hudson Valley's favorite Campgrounds, Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp and Resort. The park is set on 90 acres overlooking the Wallkill River with spectacular views of the Shawangunk Ridge with a short drive to Minnewaska State Park, Downtown New Paltz and more. Jellystone Park is the ideal family spot for making memories this summer.

Other amenities include laser tag, jumping pillow, ball pit, fishing, hiking, tubing, kayaking, gem mining, hayrides, outdoor theater and outdoor games.

If your family is up for doing away with most modern conveniences and enjoy camping you can rough it at a tented site, bring your RV along or rent an onsite cabin.


If camping just isn't your thing, have no fear- your family can still enjoy many of the attractions at Jellystone Park with a Day Camp Pass. Passes include access to the Water Zone pools, splash pad, mini- golf, jumping pillow, act
ivities, outdoor games and playgrounds. Guests under 3 are free, general admission for the day is $20/person.
