On this week’s episode of RV Family Travel Atlas, we are taking an in-depth look at the Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp Resorts franchise. There are over 80 of these campgrounds across the US, and they are a great option for many RVing families.
We will talk about the activities and amenities that are available at many Jellystone Parks. From pools and water slides to hay rides and jump pilows, some of these parks are super tricked out for the kids.
However, every Jellystone franchise park is independently operated, so it is important to do your research before making a reservation. The company’s internal ratings system can help you choose the right campground for your family vacation, and we will discuss the ins and outs of navigating the reviews.
For our campground review this week, we will talk about our recent visit to Yogi at Shangri-La, a Jellystone campground in Milton, Pennsylvania. The enclosed play area, pool, playground, and arcade could have kept our boys entertained for the entire weekend. Add in hayrides with the bears, dance parties, and wild water fights…kid nirvana!
This campground has so many of the activities and amenities that make Jellystones family friendly. But there is a huge variety of sites, so listen to our podcast review for recommendations on finding your perfect campground.
And we couldn’t resist throwing in a review of the Yogi Bear classic cartoon box set and the more recent Yogi Bear feature film. These DVDs are fun to watch before, during, and after your visit to a Jellystone. The best part is that the adults and the kids can enjoy them together.

And keep an eye on those pic-a-nic baskets, folks.
