Terms of Service

I agree, and shall cause my children, invitees and guests, to abide by the Park Rules posted at the Premises or otherwise communicated in any manner by Jellystone Park management. All rates, specials, terms and policies are subject to change at any time without notice.

I further understand and agree that Jellystone Park does not give credit or refunds due to the discomforts of nature. Jellystone Park's refund policy varies, depending on the timing of the cancellation notice in advance of the reservation date, as follows:

Cabins: If a reservation is cancelled more than 30 days prior to the arrival date we will issue a full refund, less a $30 booking fee per accommodation canceled. No refunds or return certificates will be given for cancellations received less than one month prior the scheduled arrival date. No Shows forfeit the entire payment. No refunds or rain checks will be given due to weather conditions; camping is an outdoor experience.

Campsites: If a reservation is cancelled more than 2 weeks prior to the arrival date we issue a full refund, less a $30 booking fee per accommodation cancelled. No refunds will be given for cancellations received less than 14 days before the scheduled arrival date. No Shows forfeit the entire payment. No refunds or rainchecks will be given due to weather conditions; camping is an outdoor experience.

Golf Carts:  If a reservation if cancelled more than 2 weeks prior to the arrival date we issue a full refund, less a $20 booking fee per golf cart cancelled.  No refund will be given for cancellations less than 14 days before the scheduled arrival date. No shows forfeit the entire payment.  No refunds or rainchecks will be given due to weather conditions; camping is an outdoor experience. We do not allow personal golf carts or ATV's.

To preserve your enjoyment of the trees in our campground and the surrounding area, only firewood purchased from the campground may be burned. This will help prevent the spread of the gypsy moth, emerald ash borer, oak wilt and other invasive pests and diseases. Under the encouragement of environmental sources, we must confiscate carry in firewood. This is a serious problem and we ask our campers to take it seriously as well. State and federal fines up to $1,000 apply for violations of firewood quarantines.

I understand that I must be 21 years of age with a valid driver’s license to make a reservation and camp. Our campsites are booked for one family per site which allows for parents and their immediate dependent children. We will allow up to two additional adults to stay on the site as long as they are extended family of the renters and if the total number of guests on a site does not exceed 6. If a family renting a site has only two adults and two children, they may add two additional children (total number of guests does not exceed 6). We do not offer group sites, therefore if there are two families, they will each need to rent their own campsite.  A maximum of one camping unit plus one small tent for immediate children is allowed per site (campsites only)

As a guest I understand I may have family/friends come in to visit me during my stay and am aware there is a charge involved if they should. Visitor fees are $15 a person and will include access to Bear Paw Beach, jumping pillow, playgrounds, laser tag & blow ups and hourly activities (due to high occupancy in the park the pool is not included). I understand that there is a limit of 6 visiting guests per site. .We offer a limited quantity of guest passes per day, once passes are sold out no additional guest passes may be purchased online or in person at the campground. We advise pre-paying and booking online in advance to guarantee your guests have access to the campground. This can be done at the following link: bearpawbeach.com

As a participant in a recreation activity, I am responsible for acting within the limits of my ability and heeding all warnings regarding participation in the activity. I will maintain control of myself and any equipment while participating in the activity and will refrain from acting in any manner that may cause or contribute to injury to myself or to others.

I HEREBY RELEASE, WAIVE, DISCHARGE AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE Bear Country Inc, d/b/a Yogi Bears Jellystone Park, its owners and agents (collectively, Jellystone Park Management), from any and all liability to me, my children, my invitees/guests, personal representatives, and heirs for any loss or damage on account of injury to person (including death) or loss or damage to property relating to, or arising out of, use and occupancy of the Jellystone Park property, facilities, golf carts, amenities, pools, water park, and jumping pillow (collectively, the Premises).

I HEREBY AGREE TO INDEMNIFY, SAVE AND HOLD HARMLESS Jellystone Park Management, and each of them, from any loss, liability, damage or cost (including attorney fees) they may incur due to injury (including death), damage or loss of property relating to use of the Premises by me, my children, and/or my invitees/guests or due to any incidents that may occur during my stay. I understand that, although Jellystone Park Management makes every reasonable effort to provide a secure environment, the security of my person, my belongings, and all persons registered in my party is my sole responsibility.

The Premises are privately owned and THE JELLYSTONE MANAGEMENT RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REFUSE SERVICE to anyone for any reason except for those prohibited by law. Jellystone Park Management reserves the right to ask any person or party it deems necessary, to leave the campground based on violations of Park Rules or behavior management deems inappropriate or disturbing to others. I have read this notice and agree to it as well as all Jellystone Park Rules and regulations. In addition, I understand that I am responsible for the actions of all persons registered in my party, including any children, and any guests that visit during my stay.

I understand that all persons must wear wristbands to enter the resort and that entrance constitutes permission for the management to photograph anyone while on the premises and to use any resulting pictures for any lawful purpose without compensation to the individual.
