Yogi Bear is one fancy guy – he even wears a neck tie in the woods! You can be a fancy camper too when you go ‘glamping’ at Jellystone Park. Um…so what is ‘glamping’? A combination of ‘glamorous’ and ‘camping’. Glamping is fancy camping. Here’s what you need to know…

The Basics

Our tent sites are pet-friendly and have 20 amp electric and water nearby. Free WiFi throughout the park means you can binge-watch all your favorites, just like at a fancy hotel. Nice restrooms with hot showers, fire pits, and picnic tables are just what you want and need.

The Glamping Part

Glamping for Families | Glamping at Jellystone Park


The number one thing that separates glamping from tent camping is a nice, comfortable bed. An air mattress, raised or on the ground, is what you want. You don’t even have to blow them up. These modern air beds have built-in pumps! No work at all! You’ll need sheets to fit your new air mattress, pillows, and thermal blankets too.

Tent Décor & Accessories

How about a pretty rug and an inflatable couch? A couple of collapsible event chairs will make it easy to socialize. If you want to see what you’re doing at night, better invest in a few battery-operated LED hanging tent bulbs. And if you want to feel especially glamorous, a string of tiny, twinkly fairy lights will give your tent an ethereal feel.

Eating & Drinking

If you plan to cook anything, a set of cooking utensils is handy. But really, and this is an absolute must – get an easily transportable wine cooler and some unbreakable wine glasses. Remember – camping without wine is just sitting in the woods.

Wait a minute. You say the kids are too young to drink? Try these fun glamping accessories just for the li’l cubs…

  • T-Rex Dinosaur LED headlamp for kids. They can run around in the dark just like dinosaurs while you’re having your wine.
  • RoarBottle – T-Rex water bottle for children. Push his teeth in to hear him roar!
  • Marshmallows – No need for the kids to scrounge up pointy sticks from the ground…just get a set of aluminum marshmallow roasting sticks.
Where to find all this stuff?
  • Believe it or not, there are actually companies that will come to your chosen site, provide you with a luxurious tent, and set everything up for you, right down to a mint on your pillowcase.
  • The real fun, though, is planning all this yourself and figuring out how to obtain it all. Here’s the fastest way to find all these items…Amazon.com
