USA TODAY Readers Name 3 Jellystone Parks Among Top 10 in the Country

Three Jellystone Park locations have been named among the best in the United States by USA TODAY readers, according to a press release.

The Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park location in Pelahatchie was voted the top RV Park in the nation in USA TODAY’s 10Best 2022 Readers’ Choice competition. Also ranking with the Mississippi property is the Jellystone Park location in Cave City, Kentucky.

Meanwhile, the Jellystone Park location in Caledonia, Wisconsin was named among the top ten properties in the 10Best Luxury RV Resorts category.

The three Jellystone Park locations offer exceptional RV sites, rental accommodations, attractions, activities, and even some of the best water zones in the country.

“We are thrilled that USA TODAY readers ranked several Jellystone Park campgrounds among the best in the nation,” said Trent Hershenson, vice president of marketing for Camp Jellystone, which franchises more than 75 Jellystone Park locations across the U.S. and Canada.

“These rankings not only reflect the tremendous popularity of Jellystone Park locations across the country, but the efforts of our franchisees to continually improve their parks, which encourages families to return to Jellystone Park locations each year to continue creating great family memories,” he added.

Major improvements at each location include a pool, water slide, splashground, sandy beach, mini-golf, laser tag, human foosball, and many more attractions at the Pelahatchie site. The campground also has a lot of daily activities and campers have plenty of opportunities to interact with Yogi Bear costumed characters.

The Cave City location recently completed an expansion that included the construction of a 2.3-acre man-made lake with a sandy beach. U.S. News & World Report named the Jellystone Park at Mammoth Cave one of “The 8 Coolest Campgrounds for Families” in 2016 and the Travel Channel named it one of the 10 best campgrounds for families in 2015. 

The Jellystone Park in Caledonia has also continued to make improvements. Currently, the park is adding a third swimming pool to complement its existing activity pool, giant water slides, and Yogi Bear’s Picnic Splash water play area. 

Jellystone Park locations are famous for their fun attractions, organized family activities, and theme weekends filled with plentiful interactions with Yogi Bear, Boo Boo, Cindy Bear, and Ranger Smith.

Isn’t it cool that three Jellystone Park spots made it to the top ten in the country? These places are packed with all sorts of fun stuff like RV sites, water zones, and even encounters with Yogi Bear characters. I love how they host themed weekends and events all year round. Imagine enjoying outdoor movies, trails, and themed activities there – sounds like a blast for families, right?
