Sleeping Accommodations

Before you choose which glamping cabin is best for you, you must first learn about the cabin's sleeping accommodations. Learning how many people your cabin can sleep is crucial to finding the perfect glamping cabin!

At Jellystone Park™ Barton Lake, we have 5 luxury cabin types to choose from. Talk about options! If you have a larger family, our Barton Lake Bungalow, Deluxe Cottage, Deluxe Cottage w/ Loft, and Boo Boo Bungalow are great options - they all sleep up to 8 people! If you have a smaller family that only requires the essentials, check out our BRAND NEW Glamping Pods that sleeps up to 4 people! No matter the size of your family, we've got you covered!


In general, it's good to note if your glamping rental includes a full kitchen and bathroom so that you can plan ahead of time what you need to bring. Lucky for you, almost all of the glamping options at Jellystone Park™ Barton Lake include a bathroom! The only exception being our Glamping Pods which have no running water. As for kitchens, some of our glamping cabins are equipped with either a kitchenette (no sink), kitchenette (with sink), kitchen (no oven), or kitchen (with oven).

For those looking to book a cabin rental that includes a kitchenette but no need for an oven, we recommend booking our Deluxe Cottage or our Deluxe Cottage w/ Loft. If you're looking to book a glamping cabin with a little more luxury, our Barton Lake Bungalow and Boo Boo™ Bungalow have a full kitchen.
