Jeremy described the North Texas Jellystone in Burleson, TX, as an “off-the-hook camping city.” What makes this campground off the hook? Well, start with the towering waterslide you see as you first enter the campground, add in one of the most extensive amenities lists we’ve ever seen, and top it off with a huge selection of campsites.
North Texas Jellystone is conveniently located just 30 minutes outside of Fort Worth and an hour southwest of Dallas. It’s a terrific basecamp for exploring either of those cities, but first, you’ll have to convince your kids to leave the campground.
Campground Details: North Texas Jellystone
North Texas Jellystone offers everything from primitive tent camping to deluxe “red carpet” RV sites. Prices vary greatly depending on the season and the type of campsite, so we recommend plugging in some dates on their website to see the array of possibilities and prices.
There are advantages and disadvantages to each area of the park. The sites closest to the activities have more road noise from the highway and put you at the heart of the hectic campground; however, families with kids may find these the most convenient. The red carpet sites are much quieter and located at the back of the campground, but you’ll find less shade.
Campground Amenities: North Texas Jellystone
Where to begin? North Texas Jellystone is a happening place, and quite a lot of entertainment is included with your resort fee. Of course, there are the traditional offerings you would expect from a Jellystone, like pools, scheduled activities, and Yogi greetings. Then, there are the added bonuses like an extensive climbing area, a gaga ball pit, dance parties, fire truck rides, train rides, and catch-and-release fishing.
However, North Texas Jellystone doesn’t stop there. This park truly embraces the motto of “everything is bigger in Texas” by offering activities rarely found elsewhere. First, there’s the Pirate’s Cove waterpark (daytime visits are not included in your resort fee, but at $15 a person, the cost is reasonable). Next, there are activities like a maze, paintball, and laser tag. Finally, there’s the Zombie Zone (you just have to see the video on their website).
Most importantly, the North Texas Jellystone makes it easy to tell which activities are included and which involve extra fees. Check out the list on their website. If you are not worn out just from reading about the plethora of activities, then this park might be for you!
You won’t find a restful retreat at the North Texas Jellystone, but you will find more family fun than you could imagine.
