Fantastic Fall Festivities at YOGI BEAR’S JELLYSTONE PARK™!
Now's the perfect opportunity to stay at YOGI BEAR'S JELLYSTONE PARK™! Fall is a fantastic time to plan a weekend camping trip, whether you're looking to take advantage of the great weather, time with family, or the special promotions we have going on at our Louisiana campground. The park rangers have been busy planning some exciting things for this time of year, and we wanted to highlight just a few of the events you'll experience when you join us this Fall!
While the "cubs" are back in school, Jellystone Park offers time to relax and unwind every weekend with fun themes throughout the season. Join us for Game Show Mania Weekend on Friday, September 13th through Sunday, September 15th. Prizes like credits on future camping trips and Yogi Bear merchandise will be awarded to contestants who participate in various games like Deal or No Deal, bingo, and Yogi-pardy. Plus, dance the night away at the Rec Center on Saturday night with a DJ. You won't want to miss our Super Huge Garage Sale Weekend September 20th through 22nd, either! The entire Jellystone Park community will get together for a campground-wide garage sale. It's a great time to shop around and discover your own treasure. Plus, save big on your reservation with 40% off campsites and cabins during the weekend.
Weekends in October are very popular among Jellystone Park campers, and for good reason! Trick-or-treating is a part of every weekend in October (be sure to bring candy to share with fellow campers), along with other Halloween-related activities. Reservations for these weekends tend to fill up quickly, so make sure you book your campsite or cabin now. Grandparents looking to spend quality time with their grand-"cubs" will enjoy our Fall Festival Weekend October 4th through 6th. Experience Fall-themed favorites like a pumpkin patch, a "hey" ride parade, and kiddie carnival with games and prizes. Stay with us during our Warlock and Witching Weekends (10/11-10/13 and 10/18-10/20) for more spooky family fun. There will be a haunted attraction, golf-cart poker runs, dancing, and the chance to play night-vision volleyball. It all leads up to Halloween Weekend October 25th-27th, with traditional Halloween activities like trick-or-treating, a haunted attraction, and monster-mash dancing at the Rec Center on Saturday night.
November provides a perfect time for scouts and service members to visit Jellystone, with special offers and deals for these groups throughout the month. Scout and youth groups receive 40% off cabin and campsite reservations the first weekend in November (11/1-11/3). Celebrate RANGER SMITH™'s birthday with cake and ice cream; then, shake off the calories on Saturday night at the Rec Center with a DJ. Veterans and first responders also deserve time to relax and unwind in the great outdoors. That's why we offer veterans and current military free camping accommodations from November 8th-10th (campsites and cabins will be 40% off for everyone else during the same weekend). Actively employed first responders, police officers, and firefighters will also enjoy the benefit of camping for free the weekend of November 22nd through 24th.
Then, join us for our Holiday Celebration and Anniversary Weekend Thursday, November 28th through December 1st. The fun starts off on Thanksgiving Day with our 40th annual Thanksgiving potluck, followed by a poker run invitational. There will even be a visit from Santa Claus himself on Saturday, November 30th! Daily Rec activities occur Wednesday through Sunday as a send-off to a successful camping season. We'll also say goodbye to YOGI BEAR™ and friends this weekend before they go into hibernation until March 2020.
These are just some of the reasons to stay at Jellystone Park during the Fall. For a full list of events in a month-to-month breakdown, see our event calendar. If you think now is the perfect time to plan your visit Jellystone Park, book your campsite online or call 985-542-1507!
