Discover the top frequently asked questions by our campers that will help prepare you for your stay at Clay’s Resort Jellystone Park™. From check-in and check-out times, to pet policies and quiet hours, you can find it all here!
Do you have golf cart rentals?
We do! You can add a golf cart (4 seater) or limo cart (6 seater) to your stay when booking our Ohio cabins. Check out rates over on our add-ons page. Please note, overnight campers are no longer allowed to bring in personal golf carts unless needed for ADA purposes
How far in advance should I make my reservation?
We recommend booking at least 6 months in advance of the desired arrival date, as our Ohio campground will fill up quickly! We book reservations up to 360 days in advance, so you can even re-book your stay for 2023 at checkout.
Will my reservation guarantee a specific site location?
We do offer you the opportunity to guarantee your favorite campsite or cabin rental by paying our applicable locking fee. If you opt out of the locking fee, you are guaranteed your selected site or cabin type, but NOT the specific unit number.
Can I tour the park before booking?
Yes! We just ask that you call ahead of time and check in at the Registration office before entering the park. Monday-Thursday are the best days to come to take a tour!
When is the cheapest time to stay when visiting your Ohio campground?
Our rates depend on when you’d like to stay and what amenities are available during your dates. Non-Peak season is cheaper than Peak season, and weekdays are cheaper than weekends. However, please be sure to check amenity availability before booking.
What is the speed limit?
Because our Midwest campground is full of active families with children, the speed limit throughout the campground is 5MPH and is strongly enforced for your safety.

Where do I get firewood?
We have firewood available for purchase at the General Store and the 93 Gate. Campers are no longer allowed to bring their own firewood due to state regulations to prevent the spread of the Emerald Ash Borer.

Seasonal campers must pay a $50 registration fee and complete a golf cart registration form.

Alcohol is available for purchase at John O’s, the Rooftop Bar at the Beach House, and the General Store.

Glass is not permitted.
Do you allow inflatables in your lake?
Inflatables and toys are permitted in the chill zone of our waterpark. No oversized inflatables allowed.

This is including, but not limited to, the water park area, playgrounds, pavilions and all buildings. Smoking of any substances besides tobacco and vaporizes will not be tolerated. Management reserves the right to fine violators of this policy.
Are Campfires Allowed?
You bet, unless when we are under a Burn Ban, so be sure to ask the 93 Gate at check-in. We ask that campfires be confined to designated hours and are not left unattended. We do not permit outside firewood being brought into our park or the cutting of any of our trees or brush. Firewood is available for purchase at the General Store and 93 Gate.
