Even though the kids are back to school, the fun has not stopped at Jellystone Parks. In fact, with all of the exciting campground activities, fall is one of the most popular times to camp with Yogi Bear. If you haven’t already booked a 2015 fall camping weekend, here are 5 reasons why you should do it now!
Activities for Every Age
If you want seriously spooky stuff this time of the year, Jellystone has you covered. Many campgrounds offer haunted houses, hikes, and wagon rides. Listen to ghost stories around a campfire or attend a witch’s bonfire. If your little ones like to stay away from the scary stuff, there are plenty of fun activities for them as well. Pumpkin decorating, glow stick wagon rides, and candy bar bingo are fun ways to celebrate the season without the thrills and chills.
Get the most out of that Halloween costume
We all know our kids want to wear their costumes from the moment they pick it out. Trick-or-treating at a Jellystone Park lets them trot out that superhero cape or princess tiara before the official big day. They won’t believe their good luck when they double their Halloween candy stash!
Celebrate the best foods of the season.
Many Jellystone Parks get into the spirit of the fall harvest by hosting apple pie contests and chili cook offs. You will also find potluck Thanksgiving dinners and hot apple cider served around the campfire. If you are all about the pumpkins, apples, and donuts this time of year make your way to a Jellystone Fall Festival.
Help Put Yogi Bear to Sleep
Our boys have grown seriously attached to Yogi Bear over the years that we have been visiting him at Jellystone Parks. Many campgrounds have hibernation celebrations where kids get to wish Yogi Bear sweet dreams as they send him off for his winter slumber. What a great way to end the family camping season!
