Jellystone Campground in South Dakota Supports Local Heroes with Events & Discounts

Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resort of Sioux Falls, SD is honoring the true Super Heroes – police, firefighters, emergency personnel and armed forces – of our communities the weekend of September 16-18, 2011.

A number of special events and programs are scheduled for Saturday, September 17, 2011. A portion of the proceeds from the weekend will be donated to Operation Cares—an organization that provides support to families of service men and women who have been called away to support and defend our country.

“We’re excited to once again recognize and honor our everyday ‘superheroes’ who risk their lives helping our community,” said Donna Aljets, owner of Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resort. “In addition, due to the outpouring support we had last year, we look forward to hosting a number of events that will also benefit Operation Cares.”

Activities scheduled for the day include: a rocket launcher, humvee and obstacle course provided by the South Dakota Army National Guard; presentations on “Stranger Danger” by the Minnehaha County Sheriff’s office; the Brandon Fire Department’s fire truck; the Sanford Helicopter; wagon rides; visits from Yogi Bear and Boo Boo; an evening community bon fire; and other activities throughout the day.

All campsites and cabins are discounted 25% to any retired or active “superhero” with a valid ID. For those “superheroes” who are not campers, the daily admission fee at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park is also discounted 25%.

The festivities begin on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. and will conclude around 10:00 p.m. The event is open to the general public. For more information, call 605-332-2233 or visit http://www.jellystonesiouxfalls.com/ for more information.

Jellystone Park™ Gears Up For Halloween

Labor Day weekend may mark the end of the traditional summer camping season, but for the Jellystone Park™ Campgrounds that offer Halloween-themed activities; their busiest season is just beginning.

“We’re just now getting into our busiest time of the year,” Dana Gabriel, co-owner of the Jellystone Park Campground in Swansea, S.C. , stated in a news release. She added that her park offers five consecutive Halloween-themed weekends that include carnival games as well as costume contests for adults, children and pets; campsite decorating contests; and trick or treating. Halloween-themed activities have gotten to be so popular, Gabriel said, that the park ratchets up the scariness, with “no scare” Halloween events on the last weekend of September and first weekend of October, followed by three full-on scary weekends for older children and adults that also include a haunted house, which Gabriel and her family created out of an old barn.

Most Jellystone Parks now offer Halloween-themed activities. Activities typically include campsite decorating and costume contests as well as trick or treating and, in some cases, haunted houses and spooky nighttime walks in the forest.

Club Yogi Rewards

The Devich Family won the first Bass Pro Shops® Camping Gear Package in our July Auction!

“My family’s involvement with Jellystone Park™ and Yogi Bear™ began in July 2004 when we first rented an RV for three days at Mill Run, PA. We liked it so much that we kept increasing the time we stayed and “graduated” to a cabin in 2005. Eventually our stay was built up to two weeks – which, of course, by that time everyone at Mill Run was like family. The “Devich’s” love Yogi’s Jellystone Park and have a great deal of confidence in Bass Pro Shops® and their products. They are #1 for our camping needs.”
Thank you,
~Patty Devich

 

The Plemmons Family won the second Bass Pro Shops® Camping Gear Package!

“The photo is of my family and I was actually fortunate enough to have been asked to don the coveted outfit which my children were completely unaware. It was a fantastic experience and the entire staff at the Nashville Park couldn’t have been nicer. We stayed for 3 months and felt like family during that time. During our stay we were also fortunate enough to be able to attend the grand reopening of the Bass Pro Shop® in Nashville which had been closed due to the disastrous flood that impacted the region in May of 2010. It was quite an event as they were the first business within the mall area to reopen after the flood. We visited many more times during the remainder of our stay.
Thanks again to Jellystone Park and Bass Pro Shop for an incredible time,”
~Scott Plemmons

Montrose, CO Campground Joins LSI

BLACK CANYON JELLYSTONE PARK CAMP-RESORT IS A CONVENIENT GETAWAY FOR LOCAL RESIDENTS AND TOURISTS ALIKE

MONTROSE, Colo., Aug. 2, 2011 – When Shawnie and Oliver McMichael took a weekend camping trip with their five kids and other family members a few weeks ago, they didn’t have far to go.

They camped at the Black Canyon Jellystone Park Camp-Resort – just a few minutes away from their home in Montrose.

“My husband wasn’t convinced it was going to feel like camping because it was so close to home,” Shawnie McMichael said. “But he actually liked it.”

In fact, their kids, ages 8 to 17, had so much fun there with swimming, crafts and other activities that the McMichaels plan to make a return trip.

“I think our family will definitely go back,” Shawnie McMichael said. “The pool was very cool and clean and refreshing. The kids loved being able to hop in and run back to the campsite.”

While the campground has RV and tent sites, it also has lodge rooms that families can rent if they don’t have an RV or tent or if they need overflow space for large groups.

The park, in fact, has had many improvements in recent years.

Formerly known as Country Village RV Resort, it was acquired three years ago by John Barber and a group of investors bought the park out of bankruptcy court.

“It was in pretty rough shape,” Barber said of the then mostly vacant 140-site park, located at 22045 South Highway 550.

But after investing roughly half a million dollars in improvements, including a new swimming pool, a new septic system and new paint and carpeting for the park’s buildings, Barber and his investor group are now targeting the family vacation market by joining the Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts chain.

“We’re officially a Jellystone Park now,” Barber said, adding his park is the third in Colorado to join the national franchise chain, which is famous for offering fun, family activities throughout the camping season.

Barber is already developing an activities schedule that will include ice cream socials, indoor movies and scavenger hunts. He’s also planning several themed weekends, including a murder mystery weekend and a chocolate themed weekend later in summer. Halloween themed weekends are also being planned for the first two weekends of October. Of course, all these activities now have an extra element of fun with Yogi Bear participating. Yogi is on site daily to greet campers, pose for photo ops and take part in events.

Barber is also continuing to make improvements to his park, including expanding the campground store.

The park is located about 9 miles south of Montrose, 70 miles south of Grand Junction and is about 25 minutes from Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. Other Colorado Jellystone Parks are located in Estes Park and Larkspur.

Launched in 1969, the Jellystone Park system now boasts over 75 campgrounds with more than 15,000 campsites in 30 states and three Canadian provinces. Its Camp-Resorts are among the best campgrounds in the industry with a quality reputation for being fun, friendly, clean and customer service-oriented parks. Additionally, each Jellystone Park is themed with Yogi Bear elements providing instant recognition and consumer appeal. It is truly a place “Where You Camp With Friends.”®

Maine Campground Sees Uptick in Business

YOGI BEAR’S JELLYSTONE PARK AT YONDER HILL SEES UPTICK IN BUSINESS WITH LATE SUMMER DRY SPELL

Campground business levels are back to normal in August after a cool, wet spring and early summer dampened summer travel plans

MADISON, Me., Aug. 2, 2011 – The camping season got off to a slow start this summer at the Jellystone Park Camp-Resort at Yonder Hill , thanks to an unusually cool, wet spring and early summer.

“It didn’t really dry out and begin to warm up until late July,” said park owner Allen York, who recently converted the former Yonder Hill Campground to become the first Jellystone Park in Maine.

Yonderhill Campground SignBut business levels are strong this month through Labor Day weekend, and the park is completely sold out Aug. 11th to 20th during the upcoming Skowhegan State Fair, the nation’s oldest continuous agricultural fair.

York is also busy planning several themed weekends that should bring families back to his Central Maine park through early October.

Upcoming events include a horseshoe tournament on the weekend of Aug. 20th and 21st; a summer bash on Aug. 27th and 28th, with a pie eating content, a watermelon seed spitting contest, a tug of war and dancing; and a lobster dinner on Labor Day weekend.

September events also include a Halloween themed weekend Sept. 17th and 18th with a campsite decorating contest, a costume contest, trick or treating, a haunted wagon ride and a haunted house. A special discount weekend is also scheduled for Oct. 1st and 2nd, with a couple’s weekend slated for Oct. 8th and 9th with an intimate dinner.

Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts are widely known for having unique activities. Of course, all these activities now have an extra element of fun with Yogi Bear participating. Yogi is on site daily to greet campers, pose for photo ops and take part in events.
