We are pleased to announce that we opened the doors to the new Ranger Station Tuesday, July 11, 2018. Starting Sunday, July 15, 2018 we can now allow day passes to Karst Beach. The beach is open from 10 am to 8 pm every day of the week. The parking lot for Karst Beach is the paved lot just before the old entrance to the park.
Jellystone Park™ guests have a new entrance to the park. It is less than 50 yards before you get to the old entrance if you are coming from the Interstate. The long parking spaces in front of the Ranger Station are for Motor Homes, Campers, Travel Trailers, etc while they are checking in to the park. Please do not park there if you are in a regular car or truck or in golf carts. Golf cart parking is to the right of the new building. The parking spaces in front of the building are for accessible parking and 15 minute quick trips inside the building.
Currently and in the future the existing park (pools, waterslide, mini-golf, etc.) will only be open to registered guests at Jellystone Park™. Jellystone Park™ is an all-inclusive resort and their guests have access to the water slide, two pools, splash pad, etc. Karst Beach day passes are limited to the area within the fence.
Since we are an all-inclusive resort, registered guests of Jellystone Park™ will not see an additional fee for the use of Karst Beach. Public Day Pass fees for the beach will be $15.00 for ages 6 and up, $7.50 for ages 4 and 5 and no fee for ages 3 and under. Ages 16 and under must be accompanied by a responsible adult while at the beach. Children must be at least 43" tall and at least 6 years old to go on the Wibit. Life jackets are furnished and are required while on the Wibit and Corcls. Pets are not allowed in the beach area.
The new Ranger Station will always be open to the general public. We opened the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Restaurant Wednesday, July 11,2018. We also have a snackbar that includes Hunt Brothers Pizza. Swirl Station ice cream will be opening in a few more days.
While it was our original goal to be fully operational in May of 2017, everything didn’t go in our favor -- mostly the weather. Please stay tuned for exciting grand opening news. We are so very happy to be able to add this attraction to our community. We ask for good thoughts and patience in the upcoming weeks.
Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Restaurant opened inside the Ranger Station at Jellystone Park™ on Wednesday, July 11th, 2018.
