HARRISVILLE, Penn., March 16, 2011 – One of America’s most popular cartoon and TV characters, fresh off his big screen movie, has found a new home at Kozy Rest Kampground.
The “Smarter-Than-The-Average Bear” is the official host of the newly converted Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park at Kozy Rest in Harrisville, Penn., 60 miles north of Pittsburgh. The change was announced in a news release on Wednesday.
Formerly Kozy Rest Kampground, Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park at Kozy Rest is still owned and operated by the Quigley family. The Quigleys have owned the highly rated facility since 2000.
“We are eagerly looking forward to being affiliated with Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Parks,” Denny Quigley said. “The nationwide system of full-service Jellystone campgrounds stands for clean, safe, family fun and convenience and that is exactly what we have strived to provide our guests for the past 11 years. That’s what made us feel Jellystone Park was a good fit for us.”
“Jellystone’s slogan is ‘Where You ‘Camp With Friends,’ and that slogan couldn’t be more true for us here at Kozy Rest,” said Gary Quigley. “We have built our reputation on camping with friends and making everyone feel welcome. We are extremely excited to add Yogi Bear to our great staff and to the list of everything else we already offer.”
Opening date for the newly converted facility, which has 170 campsites, is April 15th.
Along with RV and tent camping, the 34-acre resort offers yurts and full-service cabin rentals, plus lots of family fun with a swimming pool, miniature golf, children’s playgrounds and planned activities. And, of course, the one and only Yogi Bear, Jellystone Park’s number one citizen, will be there greeting, entertaining and joining in the family fun!
Launched in 1969, the Jellystone Park system now boasts 75 campgrounds with more than 15,000 campsites in 30 states and three Canadian provinces. Its Camp-Resorts are among the best campgrounds in the industry with a quality reputation for being fun, friendly, clean and customer service-oriented parks. Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts are franchised through Leisure Systems, Inc. (LSI), a wholly owned subsidiary of The Park River Corporation, Cincinnati, Ohio.
