Camping Is Always In-Season!

December 24, 2010

While the weather has turned frosty in most of the country, campers need not despair – there are still plenty of Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park™ Campground open year round!

You’ll find our friendly staff and top-notch hospitality still very much in working order during the winter months, so don’t give up on camping fun just yet. In addition to RV campsites, many of our campgrounds offer heated cabins and lodges, as well as access to winter-time activities at northern parks. With rates at their off-season lowest, it’s the perfect time for a quiet getaway. And further south, you’ll find Yogi Bear-style fun (and warmer temperatures!) at Jellystone Park campgrounds.

From Larkspur, CO (nestled in Pike National Forest), where you can rent a premium cottage for $99 and enjoy the quiet of the Colorado winter, to Burleson, TX , where you’ll find yourself perfectly positioned to explore the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex, and plenty of places in between, now’s the time to see a new side of camping. Visit here for a full listing of year-round parks.

Get Your Beam On with Laser Tag

October 26, 2010


Cool, crisp days (and evenings) are perfect for a family game of Laser Tag! This high-tech combination of tag and hide-and-seek is fun for everyone from kindergarteners to the grandparents – and it’s sure to get your blood pumping. The game began in the 1970s during the sci-fi heyday, and has since grown into a full-fledged phenomenon. Players are given a laser gun to “shoot” members of the opposite team. Everyone gets into the act as you duck behind trees, crouch between shrubs and creep along the side of buildings, looking for your best shot while avoiding the laser beam of your opponents. 

Lasar tag fun with Jellystone Park™.

You’ll find Laser Tag games at three Jellystone Park™ Campgrounds: in Hagerstown, MD , where you can play at night; in Luray, VA , where you’ll also find pedal boats, miniature golf, and “Old Faceful” Mining Company; and at Canyon Lake, TX , where you’ll love the jumping pillow, heated indoor pool and tubing down the Guadalupe River. 
Choose your team and get ready for a great time!

Gatlinburg, TN: Gateway to Family Fun

October 23, 2010

If you grew up in the Southeast, chances are the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area was your idea of nirvana. And autumn is the perfect time to experience the breathtaking beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains and the hundreds of family attractions that surround this destination. From hiking, horseback riding and leaf-spotting on rugged mountain trails, to Dollywood, Hillbilly Golf, the Ripley’s Aquarium and Believe It or Not Museum, and the world-class dining and shopping of Gatlinburg itself (don’t miss the Pigeon Forge outlet malls), absolutely everyone enjoys this spectacular region.

Relax at Mr. Ranger's Cabin.

And as always, Yogi Bear™ is right in the middle of the fun. The Great Smoky Jellystone™ Park Campground is nestled at the edge of the national park and is a relaxing haven only minutes from the hustle bustle of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Guests can bring their RVs or tents, or book a rental cabin. This year the park added Mr. Ranger’s Cabin, a restored historical log cabin that’s available for rent year-round. While you’re there enjoy the kids’ activities, game room, mini golf, Yogi Bear’s theater, a playground and more. The Great Smoky Mountain Jellystone Park is open through November 29, and every weekend between now and then is packed with wholesome fall fun.
