Family Travel Forum

Family Travel Forum

Family Travel Forum (FTF), the leading publisher of family vacation and travel websites, has named the winners of its 11th annual “Top 10 Getaways” awards. Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Parks are among those recognized as affordable vacation destinations. 

For 2008, FTF editors searched beyond the “sale” signs to find hospitality and travel companies that are always committed to value, offering families a budget vacation. The Top 10 (Cheap) Getaway award winners raise the bar for family vacations by delivering friendly service, shared experiences and innovative amenities without breaking a parent’s piggybank. You can view the article here: “Top (Cheap) Campground Getaway: Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts.” (Note: The article states that we consider ourselves a destination vacation because we require a 3 night minimum. The 3 night minimum is only true for holiday weekends. (i.e., 4th of July, Labor Day)  We consider ourselves vacation destinations because of all the amenities and activities our campgrounds offer for families!)
