KY Campers Take Part in Spruce-Up Weekend

Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park campground at Mammoth Cave, Kentucky held a volunteer spruce-up day on March 27 and had over 50 camper families and several Scout groups join in and contribute. This fantastic group of spring campers brought lots of energy and worked side by side with campground staff. Campers were rewarded for helping with FREE camping on Friday and Saturday night and lunch on Saturday. 

One group spread 40,000 pounds of rubber mulch – made from over 2,600 recycled tires – under the new playground equipment. Another group helped place 53 tons of stone on a hillside beside some of the campground cabins. Others did painting, placed landscape timbers, tore down some old fences for replacement, picked up trash and worked on the mini-golf course.

This was the sixth year a Spruce-Up Weekend has been held at Mammoth Cave Jellystone Park to help start the season, and reports from management indicate this was the most successful so far, “The work done by these campers was absolutely outstanding!” The campers enjoyed it too. Commented one camper, “I haven’t had this much fun on a Saturday in a long time.”

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.

In 2010, two campgrounds have earned the Facility of the Year award, which recognizes campgrounds that have added new amenities and facilities to their operations, and have shown sustained improvements overall. The first campground in North Java, NY saw tremendous growth in 2009 after opening Yogi Bear’s Water Zone – a 16,000 square foot interactive splash park featuring slides, a fort, water cannons and spray features. They also added deluxe cabins to increase their appeal to families. The second campground in Natural Bridge, VA , also added water attractions to their campground, including dual slides and multiple spray features.
 
Congratulations to these New York and Virginia campgrounds!

Modern Amenities Meet Southern Hospitality at New South Carolina Campground

Just 28 miles from historic Columbia, SC, is a new Jellystone Park campground. Situated on 43 acres of beautiful rolling South Carolina farmland is the former River Bottom Farms campground in Swansea, SC , where guests will find a “relaxing experience with old Southern hospitality.”
 
The year-round campground offers 70 RV sites and camping sites to accommodate everything from state-of-the-art big rigs to the simplest tents. Their three fully-furnished cabin rentals can handle everyone else (just bring linens; the Hideaway cabin even allows pets under 20 lbs.)

Five stocked ponds and nearby Sleepy Creek cater to anglers with bass, brim and sunfish. A sparkling swimming pool beckons during warm weather, and the recreation field offers volleyball and horseshoes. A welcoming club room is the place for pool, arcade games and watching NASCAR or ball games on the big-screen TV. Nature lovers will enjoy well-marked trails to Sleepy Creek and North Edisto, while kids will have a ball at the brand-new playground.
 
With Augusta, GA and the Masters just an hour away, local golf is easy to find. The Riverbanks Zoo & Gardens are a short drive away, as is the EdVenture, the South’s largest children’s museum.
 
No wonder we are so excited about the coming year at Jellystone Park campgrounds! With amazing additions like these, how can it be anything but amazing?
