Pack Light

One of the more stressful parts of planning a vacation is deciding what to pack. How many times have you brought a ton of stuff on vacation only to use a quarter of it? Most people tend to overpack for their vacations, creating unnecessary stress and hassle. Make things easy and only pack the essentials for you and your family. Keep in mind, Jellystone Park™ Guadalupe River has a Camp Store on-site where you can purchase something you’ve forgotten.

Be Mindful of Schedule Planning

When booking a trip, it’s hard not to fill your vacation with one activity after another, but having such a tight schedule can be stressful, too. Try and find a nice balance between activities and relaxing so that you don’t get burned out in one day. When in doubt, follow your child’s lead. If they seem to be getting tired, it might be best to relax for a few hours before going onto the next activity.
