CINCINNATI, July 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts, the nation’s leading family camping, glamping and outdoor entertainment brand, has added seven new locations in time for the peak summer vacation season.
Jellystone Park locations are famous for providing families with great attractions and activities such as pools, water slides, splashgrounds, jumping pillows, wagon rides, foam parties and interactions with Yogi Bear costumed characters. Guests choose from a variety of camping and glamping accommodations, including cabins and RV sites.
There are more than 75 franchised locations operating in the U.S. and Canada. The newest camp-resorts:
Jellystone Park South Jersey – Located in Monroe, the former Hospitality Creek Campground and Swim Club became a Jellystone Park earlier this month. The location boasts a 30-acre lake with rope swing, obstacle course and diving docks, along with a pool, playgrounds and sports courts. Daily activities and themed events accompany the water fun.
Wichita Falls, Texas – This award-winning family camp-resort has returned to the Jellystone Park brand. Kids can enjoy three swimming pools, an interactive splash pad, mini golf and more. Lodging options include a variety of glamping cabins and a farmhouse that sleeps up to 14. The park was previously known as Coyote Ranch.
“We are excited to welcome these new locations,” said Trent Hershenson, vice president of Marketing for franchisor Camp Jellystone. “Record numbers of families have stayed at Jellystone Park the past several years, and we are very pleased that even more families will be able to enjoy the Jellystone Park experience this summer.”
