Family travelers can look forward to an excitement-filled summer thanks to more than 75 Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts across the United States and Canada, as well as three new locations slated to debut this summer.

 

Loved for its pools, water slides, family activities, up-close fun with Yogi Bear characters and glamping-style accommodations, Jellystone Park brings all this and more to its newest locations. Utah’s first Jellystone Park location will soon open in Zion, featuring a huge water zone with multiple water slides, a lazy river, two pools and a hot tub. Spacious RV sites and luxury cabins are available for campers, and families will enjoy a full schedule of activities.

 

A new park also hits Georgia this summer in Cochran, located less than an hour south of Macon. Set among tall trees, this space includes a lake and pool, comfortable cabins and shaded RV sites. Trails, WiFi, a dog park, interactions with Yogi Bear and more await.

 

And families eyeing Tennessee can rejoice thanks to Jellystone Park’s other newest location in Watts Bar Lake. Situated south of Knoxville, this location will boast two pools, a large splash pad with two water slides and an outdoor movie theater. Kids will love wagon rides, laser tag, gem mining, arts and crafts, themed weekends, and meeting Yogi Bear characters. Premium RV sites and luxury glamping cabins are situated in the hills and woods overlooking the lake.

 

Existing Jellystone Park locations also gear up for an exciting summer with new attractions. In Plymouth, Indiana, new amenities include a water trampoline with a runway and slide; in Carver, Massachusetts, guests can enjoy a new multilevel play structure with two long water slides, two kiddie water slides, water blasters and hydrostorm bucket; and in Grayling, Michigan, a new RC car track and mini Jeep rentals are available starting Memorial Day weekend.
