5 Reasons YOGI BEAR'S JELLYSTONE PARK™ is Perfect for Weekend Getaways

Howdy Folks! Are you looking for things to do in the New Orleans and Baton Rouge area that will get you energized and refreshed? Well, we've got the place for you! Our camp-resort in Robert, Louisiana is the perfect place to bring the family for a weekend retreat close to home. With great amenities and plenty of activities around the campground, it is sure to be a weekend to remember. Here are our top five reasons Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park is great for a weekend getaway.

1. Close to Home

Jellystone Park is located in Robert, Louisiana, only 20 minutes from Hammond. Our location is secluded enough to get away from the hustle and bustle but is close enough to be accessible to major Southern Louisiana cities. We are equally distant from New Orleans and Baton Rouge—about an hour drive. This is a perfect commute for a weekend getaway that won't give the little "cubs" in the backseat time to say, "Are we there yet?"

2. Relaxation in the Great Outdoors

Fresh air is good for the soul—just ask Yogi, he's smarter than your average bear! That's why taking time to enjoy outdoor recreation is so important. Don't spend another Saturday going to the movies or eating out. Plan an adventure-filled weekend with memories your family won't soon forget! Spend quality time with loved ones sharing stories around the campfire and enjoy pastimes like fishing, hiking, swimming, mini-golfing and more at our campground. That's why we've been voted one of the best places for family recreation in the New Orleans area. With a wide variety of activities the whole family will love, it's sure to get the kids off their screens and into the real world...for a few hours anyway!

3. Accommodations for All

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park is home to 374 RV and campsites, along with even more space with 10 different types of cabins and lodges. Whether you're looking for a traditional tent-camping experience or hosting a family reunion, we've got accommodations to fit your needs. Our RV and campsites can sleep up to five people and our cabins and lodges can host four to twelve guests at a time, depending on the cabin type.
