Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts in the U.S. and Canada have a full schedule of fall and Halloween activities scheduled, with Halloween-themed weekends already underway at some locations.
Most Jellystone Park locations celebrate Halloween with campsite decorating and costume contests, trick-or-treating, magic pumpkin patches, pumpkin carving or painting contests, as well as monster-themed dances. A growing number also have haunted graveyards, trails and houses.
Many parks also offer a variety of traditional fall-themed weekends that include scarecrow-making contests and fall crafts. A handful of locations even have corn mazes.
“With the explosion of young families starting to camp, our Halloween-themed weekends are some of the busiest times of the year, with many locations starting them in August or September,” said Trent Hershenson, VP of marketing. “Parents today want to give their kids an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors while being entertained, and with Halloween so popular, families are finding it’s a great time to try camping.”
Hershenson said that families also want the comforts of cabins, Wi-Fi, and other amenities that Jellystone Park offers, such as jumping pillows, mini golf and wagon rides.
