Beat the Heat at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts!

June 25, 2010

The dog days of summer are finally among us, and with temperatures rising, there’s no better way for your family to stay cool than in the water. With several amenities sure to please any water lover, Jellystone Parks offer a wide variety of wet and wild fun.

Water Spray Grounds are Great Summer Time Fun!

Water Spray Grounds are Great Summer Time Fun!

All of our campgrounds have sparkling pools for soaking, splashing and relaxing, but Jellystone Park’s premiere beat-the-heat play place is Yogi Bear’s Water Zone “Splash Ground.” Found at many of our parks, these playgrounds in the water add a new element of fun to the old-fashioned swimming pool. Whether it’s the mushroom shaped showers, squirting water cannons or buckets of water dumped on unsuspecting heads, everyone in the family is sure to keep cool while having a blast. There are even zero-entry levels for the smallest members of the family to safely enjoy. Just a few of the campgrounds featuring this one-of-a-kind water play include Bremen, Georgia; Robert, Louisiana; and Quarryville, Pennsylvania. For a complete listing of the campgrounds with Yogi Bear’s Water Zone, please visit Splashgrounds.

For the more daring members in your family, many of our parks have twisting, turning and gravity defying waterslides. Jellystone Parks such as Mammoth Cave, Kentucky; Woodstock, New Brunswick; Waller, Texas; Marion, North Carolina and Fremont, Wisconsin have super flumes that take riders on a journey with all the thrills of a theme park, giving parents the perfect answer to the perennial kid question, “What can we do now?” For more water sliding fun filled parks, see Waterslides.

On top of all the pools, splashes, and thrilling water slide fun, some of our other Jellystone Parks offer lakes, rivers and streams which include outrageous fun like boating, fishing, rafting, and sandy beaches to wade and swim in. For our list of ways to get wet, see Family Fun.

So gather the family, beat the heat and head out to a Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park near you! For more information visit our website at or call 1-800-558-2954 and take advantage of the all the wet and wild summer time fun!

Scare up a Ghoulishly Great Halloween at Jellystone Park Campgrounds

October 9, 2009

 Jellystone Park campers are always up for a good time, but never more so than when the frost is on the pumpkin (and the candle is in it.) Our campgrounds are wrapping up the summer and planning blowout fright and fun fests.

If you’ve never been to Jellystone Park during Halloween season – you’re missing out! Here’s just a few of the fun things your family can do: deck out your campsite in its ghostly best; creep your way through haunted forests and mazes; enjoy the boys and ghouls in their costumes as they trick or treat through the park; play spooky games and so much more. Halloween is such a big event for Jellystone Parks, sometimes it’s a month-long celebration. Check with your favorite Jellystone Park for their scare-dule of events, or say “boo” to one of our suggestions below.


Enjoy four weekends of Halloween festivities at the Jellystone Campground in Cave City, KY. Beginning October 9, the Haunted Forest opens its gates with new attractions and each campsite gets two free admission passes. There will be Trick-or-treating on Saturdays plus pumpkin carving, costume, and site decorating contests with prizes to the winners. Competition is always fierce in all three events so come prepared!

Join the Jellystone Campground in Natural Bridge, VA for Yogi’s Spooktacular Weekends starting October 9.
