Jellystone Park Chincoteague Island in Virginia will open on Friday, April 1. The third Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resort location in the state is opening where Chincoteague Island KOA was previously located, as per a press release.
“We look forward to providing guests with the Jellystone Park family vacation experience with themed events, activities, and character interactions while immersed in the natural beauty of Chincoteague Island at this waterfront resort,” said Todd Burbage, CEO of Blue Water, the outdoor hospitality company operating the location.
The Chincoteague Island location is the fifth Jellystone Park location in Blue Water’s portfolio, complementing its Jellystone Park locations in Natural Bridge Station, Va.; Cave City, Ky.; Lincoln, Del.; and Greenfield Park, N.Y.
Blue Water plans to enhance the new 200-acre Chincoteague Island location with new playground equipment, basketball and pickleball courts, new enclosures for the park’s pavilion, as well as new landscaping, road improvements, and fresh paint on park buildings. The company also plans to add new rental accommodations to the park’s existing mix of rental cabins, furnished glamping tents, and RV rentals, which complement its RV and tent sites.
Jellystone Park locations are famous for their family attractions, activities, Yogi Bear character interactions, and on-site amenities. The Chincoteague Island location features a swimming pool, jump pillow, playground, and activities center. The location is only a mile from the sandy beaches and wild ponies of Assateague Island National Seashore.
Jellystone Park Chincoteague Island is the third Yogi Bear-themed park in Virginia, with others located in Luray and Natural Bridge Station. For more information on the Chincoteague Island location, please visit their website.
