Jellystone Park™ Chincoteague Island joined the Jellystone Park™ family of campgrounds this spring on April 1, marking the fifth Jellystone Park™ location in the state of Virginia. Blue Water has since added new playground equipment, extra-large pull through sites, additional vacation rentals, new golf carts, upgraded bathhouses, new sport courts, and plans to continue upgrades to the park in the Blue Water standard of constant improvement to the guest experience.

Jellystone Park™ Chincoteague Island offers the action-packed events and activities schedule that the Jellystone Park™Camp-Resorts are known for, further enhancing the guest experience and providing endless opportunities for onsite entertainment and recreation. Neighboring Maui Jack’s Waterpark continues its partnership with Jellystone Park™ Chincoteague Island, offering $15 day passes and $30 3-day passes for guests of the campground and providing guests with even more ways to play during their stay.    

The addition of this beloved family-oriented campground on historic Chincoteague Island continues a tradition of Blue Water investment in this community and the hospitality leader’s commitment to elevating Chincoteague Island to a premier vacation destination that families will return to for years to come.
