Water Spray Grounds are Great Summer Time Fun!

All of our campgrounds have sparkling pools for soaking, splashing and relaxing, but Jellystone Park’s premiere beat-the-heat play place is Yogi Bear’s Water Zone “Splash Ground.” Found at many of our parks, these playgrounds in the water add a new element of fun to the old-fashioned swimming pool. Whether it’s the mushroom shaped showers, squirting water cannons or buckets of water dumped on unsuspecting heads, everyone in the family is sure to keep cool while having a blast. There are even zero-entry levels for the smallest members of the family to safely enjoy. Just a few of the campgrounds featuring this one-of-a-kind water play include Bremen, Georgia; Robert, Louisiana; and Quarryville, Pennsylvania. For a complete listing of the campgrounds with Yogi Bear’s Water Zone, please visit Splashgrounds.

For the more daring members in your family, many of our parks have twisting, turning and gravity defying waterslides. Jellystone Parks such as Mammoth Cave, Kentucky; Woodstock, New Brunswick; Waller, Texas; Marion, North Carolina and Fremont, Wisconsin have super flumes that take riders on a journey with all the thrills of a theme park, giving parents the perfect answer to the perennial kid question, “What can we do now?” For more water sliding fun filled parks, see Waterslides.

On top of all the pools, splashes, and thrilling water slide fun, some of our other Jellystone Parks offer lakes, rivers and streams which include outrageous fun like boating, fishing, rafting, and sandy beaches to wade and swim in. For our list of ways to get wet, see Family Fun.

So gather the family, beat the heat and head out to a Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park near you! For more information visit our website at www.campjellystone.com or call 1-800-558-2954 and take advantage of the all the wet and wild summer time fun!

Branson Missouri RV Park Joins Jellystone Park Network

The move to join Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts is the latest move for Garry and Debbie Ingram, who have transformed Shoal’s Bend RV Resort into a family friendly campground. It was a diamond in the rough when Garry and Debbie Ingram bought the 75-site RV Park in Branson, Missouri two years ago.

“It was a popular hangout for rowdy adults, partiers and people who would stay up all night,” Debbie Ingram recalled.

But the Ingrams have changed the image of the park by getting rid of the problem guests and investing more than $80,000 in improvements, including larger campsites, upgraded campsites with patios and outdoor chimineas, new landscaping, remodeled bathrooms, a new dog walk and a 20- by 60-foot outdoor pavilion, which was completed on April 1st.
