Unplugging at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park
For years, I have been bugging my husband to take us camping. After his military deployments, he’s always told me he had his fair share of time in tents. When I heard about Jellystone Park Camp-Resort, I thought maybe I finally had a chance at going camping. We’ve been having a lot of fun this summer and honestly, in the midst of all of that, I have been working really hard working from home. When we arrived at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park in Gardiner, NY the lack of cell phone service and WiFi made me giddy. Getting off of the grid and getting back to basics with my family was just what we all needed to reconnect.
This was our first time on a campground. It seemed everyone at Jellystone had been camping pro’s, but we quickly caught on. We stayed in a River View Cabin.
The Cabin sleeps up to 6 people and comes with a queen sized bed, a futon and a loft space. There’s a full bathroom, A/C, heat, TV with cable, and a full kitchen. Outside there’s a picnic table, a fire ring and a charcoal grill. Honestly, this cabin was nicer and cleaner than some five star hotels I have stayed in. We really enjoyed the location because of the huge grassy area outside of the River View Cabins. The kids were able to run and play. The neighboring cabins had children around the same ages as ours and everyone made fast friends. The staff at Jellystone worked very hard around the clock to keep the grounds neat and clean and their hard work was definitely noticed.
Tip: Remember to bring your towels, blankets, pillows, your personal items, grilling utensils, and food.
There was no shortage of activities and fun at Jellystone Park. Mini Golf, gem mining, laser tag, jumping pillow, playgrounds and hay rides were just some of the amenities. The general store was fully stocked for anything you may need.
Some of our family’s best memories happened around the camp fire. You will need to purchase your firewood from the park for $7 a bundle and have it delivered right to your campsite.
While there was no shortage of things to do at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park, we enjoyed relaxing and exploring just the same. We definitely started a new family tradition by Unplugging at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park.
