Combine family travel with fall and pre-Halloween fun at Jellystone Park locations. The Yogi Bear-themed parks offer a plethora of seasonal activities this year, including zombie hunts, caramel apple making, campsite decorating contests and more.
“Some of our locations give families a taste of Halloween as early as Labor Day, but most roll out their best Halloween themed activities after a weekend or two of fall activities,” said Trent Hershenson, vice president of Marketing, Camp Jellystone.
Here’s a sampling of activities at various Jellystone Park locations:
The park offers five consecutive weekends, beginning Sept. 30, with Halloween-themed activities such as pumpkin tosses, pumpkin bowling, Halloween costume contests and more.
Enjoy Dia Del Los Muertos weekend, Oct 7–9; Zombies Weekend, Oct. 14–16; and Halloween Weekend, Oct. 21–23.
Each weekend in October brings Halloween-themed activities like a magic pumpkin patch, caramel apples, trick or treating and more.
Next door, a seven-acre corn maze complements the park’s activities, which include campsite decorating, Halloween games, crafts and trick-or-treating.
Celebrate Halloween early, Oct. 8–11, with trick-or-treating, a costume contest, bobbing for donuts, a spider race, Halloween crafts and mummy making. There’s also Grandparents Weekend, Hometown Hero’s Weekend, Fall Apple Weekend and Sports Spectacular Weekend.
