“We are truly honored to win the Carroll Award for 2013,” said owner Denny Quigley, who owns Jellystone Park at Kozy Rest with his wife, Kathy. “We appreciate that the hard work of our staff and their attention to detail is recognized.” The Quigleys run the park with their son Gary and his family.

Nestled in the beautiful countryside of Western Pennsylvania, the family-oriented campground offers shaded, level, generously-sized, full-hookup RV campsites; tent and pop-up campsites; and 12 cabin and yurt vacation rentals – including four brand-new for 2013. Guests will also find the Kozy Club Arena, a special group camping area with 23 campsites clustered around a picnic pavilion and recreation hall – perfect for family reunions, church outings and group gatherings. The pet-friendly resort offers a dog park; two-legged guests will enjoy gem mining, a pool and playground, miniature golf, a game room, hiking trails, bicycle rentals and more. The Quigleys are currently renovating and doubling the size of the park’s office and store.

The Kozy Rest staff constantly strives for improvement, attending educational seminars in the off-season to make sure every guest’s visit is one to remember. In-season (mid-April through October), a full activities schedule with themed weekends ensures family fun. The 2013 calendar includes a Pets-R-Family Weekend (May 3-5); Chocolate Fun Weekend (May 31-June 2); and Zoofari Weekend (August 2-4). Every weekend offers ceramics, bingo, and rides on the park’s train and its beloved fire truck.
