An Update from Rob Schutter, Chief Executive of Leisure Systems, Inc.,
Franchisor of Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park™ Camp-Resorts
June 16, 2020
Everyone at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resort locations says “thank you” to all of our guests for their patience and understanding throughout 2020. It was truly rewarding to see so many families return to the great outdoors and to enjoy camping. One half of our guests visited us for the first time ever so it was great to welcome them to the Jellystone Park family. Despite the delayed opening of many locations and the various challenges associated with COVID-19, the Jellystone Park system had its best year ever in 2020.
This year, the majority of our locations are expecting to open during their normal timeframe. A variety of policies have been put in place to provide guests with a comfortable experience, ranging from activity and pool reservations to enhanced cleaning and sanitation processes. Social distancing is encouraged at all locations.
Jellystone Park locations will again be offering attractions such as pools, splashgrounds, and jumping pillows and family-focused activities and character interactions all summer long. Attractions, activities, and character interactions will be adapted and limited as needed to align with local health authority guidelines.
Specific policies vary by location and are often dictated by local authorities so we encourage all guests to contact the Jellystone Park location they’re planning to visit for the most current information before making a reservation and leaving for their destination. They can visit our blog for some helpful questions to ask.
Once guests arrive, they should always feel free to ask questions of park staff members and managers. We want everyone to feel comfortable while staying at Jellystone Park.
Thank you for camping with us. Stay safe and have a wonderful summer!
