Directions

Yogi is waiting just three minutes off of exit 86 on I-40, between Hickory and Asheville

Where are we going today?

Hey Hey Boo Boo!  What's cooking?!  Can you smell...oh I think I can....little people coming to hang out with me for the day in my park!  I'm so excited!

Well, if Yogi is excited about you going to visit, imagine how excited you will be when you hear what they have!

Jellystone Park is a campground where you can camp under the stars for a few days while you explore the area, OR you can just go there for the day!

For you day trippers, you can enjoy a deeeeelicious lunch with Yogi himself, magical pumpkin patches, bouncing hay rides, creative arts and crafts, sing for s'mores (yum!!) and even family bingo! 

During those hot days, you can ride the super duper triple looper (what a super duper loopy name!) with 300' of twists, loops and turns.  Parents, take note - the more you weigh the faster you go so no excuses, get yourself on there!

Enjoy the 18 hole mini golf course and exciting gem mining area, or get out and relax on Yogi Bear lake where you can do a spot of fishing.  You don't need a fishing license, and bait and tackle are sold at the Ranger Station nearby.  You can also rent kayak and paddleboards if you want to get out a bit further! 

For you wanting to camp and enjoy the surroundings, they are only 30 minutes from Linville Caverns, and nearby to the adventurous cave spelunking and gorgeous waterfalls!  They have tent sites, cabins, and RV spots. 

Say hi to Yogi for us!

    My husband and I just came back from staying at this camp site. We got there and checked in and the girl at the desk was so nice! As far as the amenities go, they were sub-par. We picked this Jellystone over staying in Cherokee (which is about 2 hours closer to us) because of the mini golf, arcade, gem mining and the paddle boats. The mini golf was falling apart. The picture stand in of Yogi was half gone and the holes were filled with really gross water. The paddle boat (they only had one) was missing the peddles.There was no real spot for the...Read More

    I have been going every summer since I was 4 and I always loved swimming in the river (even though it was cold) and the deep end of the pool. Another thing is that the staff are so helpful and they just care so much about each other and all of the other campers. (By the way when you're there try game night, arts and crafts night and movie night they're fun for every one)

    My 11 year old son and I just returned from N.C. from his spring break. We stayed two nights at this Jellystone in Marion. They had just opened for the season, so not much going on inside the campground i.e. arts and crafts and such. However; we were not in N.C. for arts and crafts. We came to hike.. The hospitality of the owners and their family was above and beyond any campground I've stayed in. Printing out maps and directions to nearby hikes & restaurant recommendations ... Most we have been exposed to are grumpy old retired people who are...Read More

    We went weekend before last. Loved it! You will not find nicer people that run a campground than here! We look at reviews before we go somewhere, so I hope people see this. The staff were woderful!My son and his friend loved Running Bear. Even though they only talked to him face to face once, he would smile and wave to them everytime he saw them. We were there, I guess, during the "great flood of Jellystone 2013". God had his plans for rain. It caused issues where the lake lived up to it's name. Things flooded, it happens! Arcade, golf, playground,...Read More

    Awesome!!! We went for two nights to celebrate our son's 5th birthday and he had so much fun! He is telling everyone about it and we already have friends talking about making reservations. The staff were all really great and it means so much more to see the family that owns it involved and making a real effort with the guests! Once the staff met our son they ALWAYS used his name (and we saw Running Bear a lot, so there were plenty of opportunities for him to forget, but he didn't). On our last day there was so much rain, but it was great to...Read More

You bought the bag of dirt in the store then took it to the pond to let the dirt wash away. The arcade had very few games. Most were $0.50 which was a little high for the quality of the games. We did one activity the whole time and the girl working it was very rude and hateful to the kids. We came to this one because of the amenities and 5 star review. Left a day before our reservation ended.

The hospitality of the owners and their family was above and beyond any campground I've stayed in. Printing out maps and directions to nearby hikes & restaurant recommendations ... Most we have been exposed to are grumpy old retired people who are glad you are staying because you are paying them. I can assure you the family who owns this Jellystone are the most sincere people I have ever met. We are from Cincinnati but my 11 year old kept commenting oh how nice and welcomed "Momma Bear" and her family made him feel.. We will surely return when the weather is warm, and enjoy the water slide, the lake and all the other amenities this campground offers... Thanks again

We were there, I guess, during the "great flood of Jellystone 2013". God had his plans for rain. It caused issues where the lake lived up to it's name. Things flooded, it happens! Arcade, golf, playground, all under water! After the rain, like a rainbow, Chief and his workers were out taking care of campers and the roadway. But what impressed me was that a few of his staffers continued to have "game time" and make things normal for those not affected by the flood (or the kids affected to put their minds on something else). After that weekend, even though it rained and caused issues, we will be going back and our plans are to stay longer! If you read this, GO! If you're disappointed with the campground, maybe you need to reevaluate your priorities! And for future planning, the water week is a fun time to go, kids looooove it! Us adults loved it too!
