Ways to Play

Every spring through fall there are so many ways to play at Jellystone Park™ Larkspur that you just can’t do it all! It’s even hard just figuring out what to do first!

In the winter time, our activities are held on an as-requested basis. Be sure to talk to the front desk so we can help you plan your visit!

Ways to Play: Self-Guided Activities

There is so much outdoor fun at Jellystone Park™ to do whenever you want! Each activity can be a fun, family time!


Closed for the season
Our heated pool is open from 10 AM to 8 PM in the summer season. It is a great place to swim with a cabana and sunbathing areas.

****Our pool is undergoing renovations this spring. Our target date for opening the pool is Memorial Day weekend. Just in case the construction is delayed, please don’t plan your whole experience around the pool. We’d hate for you to be disappointed. We’re sorry for the potential inconvenience and we will certainly try to have the pool up and running!****
