The Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resort location in Caledonia, Wisc., is preparing for the upcoming summer camping season with 50 new glamping cabins, 103 new RV sites, a brand new swimming pond, a floating obstacle course, and many other improvements, according to a press release.
“We expect to have everything ready by late June,” said Bridget Bender, a co-owner of the park, which will reopen for the 2019 season on May 3.
The expansion will include 31 new full hook up seasonal sites, 33 full hook-up pull-through sites, 38 full hook-up back in sites, and 50 glamping cabins.
Standard glamping cabins sleep seven and include a living room and a kitchen with a full-size refrigerator, an oven and range, a microwave oven, a dishwasher, a TV, and a bathroom with a shower over the tub. The loft cabins have the same amenities but sleep six.
A new five-acre swimming pond is also being added with a sandy beach and a Wibit floating obstacle course, which is expected to be ready for guest use by early June. The Wibit, which is anticipated to be the largest in the Jellystone Park franchise network, will take up close to an acre of water space and will be able to support 180 people at once.
The Jellystone Park in Caledonia is one of the oldest campgrounds in the Jellystone Park franchise network, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, according to the release. The Caledonia campground first opened 47 years ago in 1972 and joined the Jellystone Park network the same year. The current owners acquired the park in 2005.
