Colorado Campground to Feature Gourmet Meals with Organic Produce Grown on Site

The Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in Larkspur is planning at least five gourmet dinners from Memorial Day weekend through late September.

LARKSPUR,  Colo. – The nights are still chilly on the east slope of the Rockies.  But that’s not stopping Matt Fredell at Jellystone Park campground in Larkspur from planting his first boxes of produce. Fredell, an organic farmer, is building planter boxes with lids that can be closed overnight, protecting newly planted vegetables from frost. “We can extend the growing season to as much as nine months by doing this,” Fredell explained, adding that he expects the first seedlings to be sprouting by Earth Day.

And by the time summer is here, Fredell expects to have a garden full of spinach, lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and herbs, which campground owner Ian Steyn hopes will inspire his guests to take an interest in organic farming, while learning more about how we grow our food.  ”We want to start teaching our guests about the principals of good stewardship, of taking care of yourself and the things around you,” Steyn said.

But Steyn’s efforts aren’t limited to the park’s organic garden. Steyn has also hired award-winning chefs Tom and Shari Fritz-Scholten, who will offer classes and prepare gourmet meals and wine pairing events throughout the summer months. The Scholtens, who previously owned and operated Fritz Alpine Bistro in Keystone, won Wine Spectator magazine’s “Award of Excellence” four years in a row, from 2004 to 2007.
 ”We want people to come to our events and enjoy wine pairings that match our sustainable food,” Tom Scholten said. “We also want to promote the fact that Colorado is becoming an incredible wine destination.”

The Scholtens’ summer schedule at Jellystone at Larkspur includes:

  • An outdoor food and wine pairing class on Memorial Day weekend
  • A gourmet barbecue class on June 16th in celebration of Father’s Day and to help guests prepare for their own July 4th celebrations
  • A “farm to table” gourmet weekend on July 21st, celebrating Colorado’s history and agricultural heritage
  • A wine pairing class on August 18th, which will help guests prepare for Labor Day weekend activities
  • A fall farm to table celebration on Sept. 21st.

But while the Scholtens’ food will be top notch, don’t expect it to be served on silver platters or bone china. “We plan to serve the food on recycled paper plates, which will then be fed to 10,000 earthworms that will consume the paper and any leftovers. We will then use the casings from the worms as fertilizer for our organic gardens. So everything will go full circle,” Steyn said. Steyn said his park is the first in the Jellystone chain of resorts to feature gourmet food with organic garden. “We want this to be a unique, informative and entertaining experience,” he said.

New Water and Snow Park to Open Near Nashville Campground

Edited from the Nashville Ledger:  

The announcement of a new $50 million water and snow park being built by Nashville entertainment giants Dolly Parton and Gaylord would seem to be great news for all of Nashville. More tourists, 450 new jobs and positive national exposure – who couldn’t rally around this news?

How about the owners of Nashville’s existing water parks, Nashville Shores and Wave Country? Surely they are feel like a mom-and-pop business watching a Walmart pop up next door.

Actually, even they seem excited.

“We think it will definitely be very helpful for business in this area,” says Lou Anne Wheeler, a manager at the nearby Jellystone Park campground. “We just went to an RV show in Huntsville and everyone who stopped at our booth said they heard about the new water park, so the excitement is everywhere already.”

Nashville Jellystone Park has 230 camping sites, and Wheeler says they are full during CMA week and would like to see more people stay there and enjoy the new theme park.

“We anticipate we will get busier when it opens because we are a family-oriented campground to begin with. We are pretty excited about it,” she adds.

Colorado Campground Hosts Disc Golf Charity Event

From Yahoo News: The Mile High Disc Golf Club in the front range of Colorado is not only making great strides in helping to spread the word about disc golf, over the fall and winter seasons they’ve worked hard to help the hungry in the region.

Their Winter Warrior Series took place starting in early November and ran through the end of January. Disc golf players came together braving especially tough conditions with the Denver area experiencing a lot more snow and extreme cold temperatures than is typical for the region. Disc golfers competed on courses like the beautiful Beaver Ranch Disc Golf Course in Conifer, and the Disc Golf Course at the Jellystone campground in Larkspur , all to help a great cause.

Proceeds from the Winter Warrior Series tournaments went to the Food Bank of the Rockies, a local charity helping to feed the hungry in metro Denver and areas beyond, such as northern Colorado, eastern Colorado and the Western Slope.

New Jellystone Park Near Gulf Shores Alabama

The Jellystone Park™ family is excited to welcome our first Alabama Park — the former Lazy Acres Campground in Elberta, AL, joins us this camping season. Located just 17 miles from Alabama’s famous Gulf Shores (and five miles from West Pensacola), Lazy Acres campground was built from the ground up 14 years ago. The owners carefully preserved the natural setting by cutting down as few trees as possible to make room for campsites and amenities. The result is a Deep South getaway that makes the perfect home base for exploring all of Floribama, from Mobile to Gulf Shores to Pensacola, FL.
 
The campground offers 43 full service sites as well as campsites for pull-throughs and tents. A pool, playground, volleyball court, and meeting room are all onsite; a fully-stocked lake offers free fishing.
 
While you’re there, you’ll want to explore the area. Be sure to visit the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park in Mobile; Gulf Shores National Seashore and Waterville, USA in Gulf Shores; and the greyhound track, and Pensacola Beach in Pensacola. The park is currently offering a free third night stay for guests who reserve a site for two nights.
 
The new Alabama Jellystone Park is open year-round and is located at 12160 Wortel Road in Elberta, AL. For reservations, call 251-986-3566.
