JELLYSTONE PARK’S™ Great American Picnic, Cajun Cook-off, and Fun, Fun, Fun!

Join us during the fun weekend of August 1st through 3rd as we host the Great American Picnic here at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park in Robert, Louisiana. America’s favorite comic hero Yogi Bear, always accompanied by his constant companion and infamous best friend, Boo-Boo Bear, will probably plot to steal “pic-a-nic” baskets from our campers in the park, much to the displeasure of Park Ranger Smith.

In fact, in 1961, in the Yogi Bear television episode “Booby Trapped Bear”, Ranger Smith set out some booby-trapped baskets as Yogi poses as a health inspector in order to get everyone’s picnic baskets.  In “Ring-a-Ding Picnic Basket” Ranger Smith again tries to trap Yogi with an alarm-rigged picnic basket, but in both action packed adventures, his plan fails.  At the Great American Picnic the kids can meet good old Yogi, Boo-Boo, and Ranger Smith right here at our campgrounds!

At our family fun campgrounds that very special weekend, we offer 50-cent hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, and drinks.

After lunch, we welcome you to participate in the following:

  • Great American Family Activities
  • Golf Cart Poker Run
  • Great American Dance with the live band Saturday night

Do not miss our Super Soaker Weekend during the following weekend from August 8th to 10th.  The classic slogan for the Super Soaker water sprayer is: the “wetter is better.”  We think everyone will agree!  During the Super Soaker Weekend, there will be a wet “Hey” ride, recreational activities, and a live band on Saturday night!

Our Annual Acadian Reunion and Cajun Cook-off, the weekend of August 15th through 17th, celebrates the Cajun heritage of Louisiana:

  • Great Cajun Food (fee for the dinner)
  • Cajun Cook-off Competition (you could win a trophy)
  • Fais Do Do (a Cajun dance party with a live band playing music)

Whether you bring gumbo, jambalaya, crawfish, or some other Cajun delight, we encourage you to participate in the cooking fun! 
See you this August at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park! Make your reservations today!
