Larry and Kim Jones, owners of the Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park campground in Canyon Lake, TX , have been recognized as Operators of the Year by the Jellystone Park franchise system.
The Operator of the Year Award is given to the individual or team directly responsible for the day-to-day operation of a Camp-Resort in recognition of excellence in management. Evaluation criteria include customer service, inspection ratings, daily management and business growth.
“God truly blessed us last year as we were able to flourish despite a season of drought, record heat and recession,” said Larry Jones, campground owner. “We are honored to receive the Operator of the Year Award.”
Located in the heart of beautiful Texas Hill Country, the campground is less than half a mile from the Guadalupe River and two miles from Canyon Lake, so water activities abound. Laser Tag, the popular Jumping Pillow and the Old Faceful Gem Mining Company set it apart; other amenities include indoor and outdoor pools, meeting rooms, a playground and planned weekend activities. Rustic tent sites and more than 150 RV sites accommodate campers, while 20 lodge rooms, five cottages (including two new this year) and RV rentals extend the fun to everyone. This year the park will install cable TV throughout most of the facility.
The Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park campground at Canyon Lake is open year-round.
