Three Little-Known Things To Do at JELLYSTONE PARK™
Ranger Smith works hard to make sure that YOGI BEAR'S JELLYSTONE PARK™ in Robert, Louisiana is a great place to visit for friends, family, bears, and cubs alike. We are home to award-winning recreation and camping facilities that feel like home. In addition to traditional camping pastimes like fishing, campfires, and nature trails, Jellystone Park also hosts lots of other great activities—some of them you may not be aware of! Below are our top picks for the lesser-known things to do at Jellystone Park.
Participate in unique outdoor activities
Jellystone Park is much more than a campground. We offer a wide range of activities that will keep the family entertained for your entire visit. That's why we call Jellystone Park a "camp-resort!" For our sports enthusiasts, we offer a full-sized basketball court, baseball field, mini-golf course, and horseshoes. Check out our events calendar to participate in our sports tournaments and competitions throughout the year. If you're looking to relax and cool down, take a dip in one of two swimming pools, or get soaked at our "spray" ground. We also offer boating activities such as kayaking, canoeing, and enjoying our paddleboats — at no additional charge.
Speaking of cooling down, you'll want to enjoy our most recent addition - Yogi's Shady Place. Take a break from the heat under this lovely new pavilion. We're in the process of obtaining misting fans which will be installed in Yogi's Shady Place soon. We hope you'll enjoy this new spot!
Did you know that you could also rent a golf cart or an RV at Jellystone Park? We partner with RV Share so you can explore the world or RVing without owning a camper yourself. Visit the "RV Rental" page on our website for more information.
Host an event
With over 100 acres of family-friendly fun, Jellystone Park hosts events of all sizes! The Recreation Center or outdoor pavilion is great for large groups who wish to take advantage of our outdoor amenities. If the weather turns stormy, The Dome is a 6,000 square foot indoor facility that is also available. Looking for privacy? Rent our gazebo for $200 a day. Jellystone Park is also the perfect place for company pick-e-nics and family reunions. Our facilities can accommodate more than 75 people and include watersport rentals, the use of the "spray" ground, mini-golf, nature trails, and sports courts. Rates start at $39 per person and include buffet meals with options like hamburgers, hot dogs, jambalaya, coleslaw, iced tea, and soft drinks. Did we mention we also host birthday parties? It's a fantastic way for the"cubs" to enjoy the great outdoors! Birthday parties include two-hours of swimming, mini-golf, and use of the "spray" ground with cake, ice cream, and drinks. Each child gets a souvenir cup and the birthday boy/girl gets a special gift from YOGI BEAR™. Call 985-542-1507 for more information and to reserve your event today!
Attend themed nights/weekends
One of the best things about Jellystone Park is the wide variety of themed nights and weekends that happen throughout the year. Regardless of when you visit, there is always entertainment for the whole family to enjoy. Grandparent Nights offer special activities at our Recreation Center and a discount for grandparents traveling with their grandchildren. Enjoy 10% off campsites on select nights in June, July, and August. See a list of Grandparent Nights here. Family Nights occur every Thursday and Sunday during the summer and include a DJ or karaoke and themed meals like pizza, tacos, and BBQ.
