Geocache at North Carolina Campground

Marion, NC

The challenge is on! See if you can find the 5 caches hidden somewhere along the nature trails that weave throughout the 64-acre Jellystone Park™ Campground in Marion , North Carolina. The trails, which feature river stop-offs and mountain views, will take you along Boo Boo™ River and through lush natural habitats of Yogi Bear’s Outback. Most of the trails are moderate, however Ranger’s Revenge is a steep grade, surely to test the endurance of our campers. Each cache is stocked with different trinkets, compasses and Yogi related gear. Trail seekers are guided by a Geomate Jr. that we rent @ the front desk for $5.

In addition to everyday accessibility, one of the unique elements we feature is the quest for Yogi Bear’s Treasure, this is a scheduled activity that will allow families to work together to seek out clues in each cache to find the Treasure. Each Cache will have a clue as to which cache they need to find next, almost like a micro “Amazing Race” in our own backyard. At the end of the quest, Yogi Bear will appear from the woods and congratulate the victors with gold “Yogi Bear Medallions”

Other Geocaching Events: With room to roam and various lodging accommodations, Jellystone Park Campgrounds are a great place to get involved in geocaching. Many Jellystone Park campgrounds have their own geocaches and participate with special geocache events and activities. Check out the other geocache events happening in 2011 at our family campgrounds.

Larry and Kim Jones, owners of Jellystone Park™ Campground Hill Country in Canyon Lake, Texas, have been recognized with the Entrepreneur of the Year Award by the Jellystone Park franchise system. The award recognizes Campgrounds that show a strong growth in business over the prior year

Located on 27 acres in the beautiful rolling hills of Texas Hill Country, the campground is just 13 miles from New Braunfels and less than an hour from Austin and Houston.

“We’ve been very blessed with strong business growth thanks to our wonderful staff and our amazing customers,” said Larry Jones. “Our team, the unique Texas economy and the great regional attractions that surround our park have helped us build a strong repeat customer and referral base.”

Jellystone Park™ in Fremont, Indiana Wins 2011 Facility of the Year Award

The Barry and Corcimiglia families, owners of the Jellystone Park™ Campground in Fremont, Indiana , have been recognized with the Facility of the Year Award by the Jellystone Park franchise system. The award is given to the Campground that has added new amenities and facilities while also showing sustained improvements on current amenities.

Located on northeastern Indiana’s beautiful Barton Lake, Fremont’s Jellystone Park Campground offers 540 scenic campsites and 36 cabins and cottages; three additional rustic cabins will be available this season. The campground features a wide array of amenities, from indoor and outdoor pools to a water playground, Zoomflume and Speed & Tube waterslides, five playgrounds, kiddie train rides, Water Wars, paddle and rowboat rentals, and so much more. A new lounge pool will make its debut in the swimming area this season. Planned activities and themed weekends make camping more fun than ever all season long.
