Harrisville, PA (Vocus/PRWEB) March 29, 2011
One of America’s most popular cartoon and TV characters, fresh off his big screen movie, has found a new home at Kozy Rest Kampground!
The “Smarter-Than-The-Average Bear” is the official host of the newly converted Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park at Kozy Rest campground in Harrisville, Penn., 60 miles north of Pittsburgh.
Formerly Kozy Rest Kampground, Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park at Kozy Rest is still owned and operated by the Quigley family. The Quigleys have owned the highly rated facility since 2000.
“We are eagerly looking forward to being affiliated with Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Parks,” Denny Quigley said. “The nationwide system of full-service Jellystone campgrounds stands for clean, safe, family fun and convenience and that is exactly what we have strived to provide our guests for the past 11 years. That’s what made us feel Jellystone Park was a good fit for us.”
“Jellystone’s slogan is ‘Where You ‘Camp With Friends,’ and that slogan couldn’t be more true for us here at Kozy Rest,” said Gary Quigley. “We have built our reputation on camping with friends and making everyone feel welcome. We are extremely excited to add Yogi Bear to our great staff and to the list of everything else we already offer.”
Opening date for the newly converted facility, which has 170 campsites, is April 15th.
Along with RV and tent camping, the 34-acre resort offers yurts and full-service cabin rentals, plus lots of family fun with a swimming pool, miniature golf, children’s playgrounds and planned activities. And, of course, the one and only Yogi Bear, Jellystone Park’s number one citizen, will be there greeting, entertaining and joining in the family fun!
The Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park system of camping resorts has grown to become the second largest campground operation in the United States, with 75 independently owned and operated facilities in North America. The camping resorts are franchised exclusively through Leisure Systems, Inc., Cincinnati, Ohio.
“We are extremely proud to have a facility of this caliber joining our national Jellystone Park family,” said Rob Schutter, president and COO of Leisure Systems, Inc. “The Pittsburgh area is simply a great location for a quality camping resort, and we feel the new facility will compliment the other attractions in western Pennsylvania.
