Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts are among the highest rated campgrounds in the country, with 20% of Jellystone Parks receiving 5W / 5W ratings in the 2011 edition of the Woodall’s North American Campground Directory.
“We’re obviously pleased that Woodall’s finds many our parks worthy of their highest ratings,” Rob Schutter, COO of Milford, Ohio-based Leisure Systems Inc., said in a press release.
While Jellystone Parks are noted for offering their guests unique family activities and special themed weekends, the Woodall’s rankings focus on the park’s recreational and physical facilities, including its physical grounds, roads, campsites, hookups, and restrooms. Woodall’s rates park by assigning them 1W to 5W ratings for both park facilities and recreation.
According to the Woodall’s 2011 directory, top rated parks in the Jellystone Park system are located in the following cities: Amboy, Ill.; Fremont, Ind.; Lawrence, Kan.; Hagerstown, Md.; Frankenmuth, Mich.; Austin, Minn.; Pelahatchie, Miss.; North Hudson, N.Y.; Gardiner, N.Y.; Woodridge, N.Y.; Harrisville, Pa.; Mill Run, Pa.; Gatlinburg, Tenn.; Caledonia, Wisc.; Wisconsin Dells, Wisc.; Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.
Launched in 1969, the Jellystone Park system is the second largest chain of campgrounds in the United States, boasting 75 campgrounds with more than 15,000 campsites in 28 states and Canada. Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts are franchised through Leisure Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Park River Corp., Cincinnati, Ohio.
