With 2018 just around the corner, we wanted to take a moment to look back and reflect on the awesome times we had at Jellystone Park™ in 2017. From beginning to end, 2017 was definitely a year to remember! While our list of memories may run long, we picked out our top 5 “Best Moments” of 2017 to share with you!

5.Best Vacation Ever

New in 2017, our “Best Vacation Ever” photo contest was a hit! We loved seeing all of the pictures of our campers enjoying their time at Jellystone Park™. Although we had lots of special and unique photo entries, there could only be one winner. But have no fear! The “Best Vacation Ever” photo contest will be returning in 2018.

4. Halloween Weekends

Always a camper favorite, our 2017 Halloween weekends were spook-tacular! Every weekend was full of costumes, decorations, arts & crafts, magical pumpkin patch journeys, and so much more! While we enjoy every holiday, we look forward to celebrating Halloween all October long every year!

3. 1st Place Christmas Parade Float

Our staff’s hard work paid off this December with a 1st place award for best overall float! It was awesome to have our Camp-Resort recognized by the public, and bringing home some “hardware” is always fun! We can’t wait to begin planning for next year’s Christmas parade float!

2. A “Beary” Special Proposal

This year, love was in the air at Jellystone Park™. With camping at our Camp-Resort near and dear to their hearts, this couple decided to take the first step towards a lifetime of love together here! We can’t decide who was more surprised, the soon-to-be bride, or Yogi Bear™!

(Yogi Bear™ is still hoping to be asked to be the ring “bear”er at the wedding.)

1. Yogi Bear™ Bunkhouse

Newly renovated in 2017, our Yogi Bear™ Bunkhouse provides a “glamping” experience unlike any other! This cabin sleeps up to 16 people and includes 4 bedroom and 3 bathrooms! The perfect “home away from home,” book a stay in this beautifully updated cabin and your camping trip is bound to be a blast!


That’s a wrap! Our top 5 “Best Moments” of 2017! We can’t wait to make more memories and favorite moments with all of our campers during 2018!
