A weekend of camping, kicking back & relaxing is good for everyone, right? Well, there are quite a few true health benefits to camping! We are constantly rushing around from point A to point B, high stress and high strung while our bodies are longing for a break in nature! Check out some of the surprising ways camping can keep you fit! 

1. Reset your biological clock! 
In order for this to work, you have to leave your technology at home! Your bodies natural sleep cycle will reboot with the rising and setting of the sun! Get ready to feel the most rested you've felt in years!

2. Increases levels of seratonin and vitamin D! 
You'll still want to bring along your daily Multivitamin, but the supplements you'll receive while your keeping will make you feel your best! Camping increases your oxygen intake, exercise levels and sunlight intake both raising your levels of seratonin and vitamin D!

3. Stronger family bonds!

Leave Your Phones at Home!

In a 2010 study done by Bavelier, Green and Dye, long term effects of technology on the brain function of youth conclusively proved that the wiring of the brain does change as technology pushes itself into every household. 2010 was a long time ago, guys! Nine years later and I can see the effects of my son's brain change after a day or two without technology! It is time to unwind and unwire on a camping trip this year! Here are some of the best phone-free activities we want your family to try!

The first suggestion we have to get the kids to put away the tablets, tvs and cell phones is relay races! Relay races make their brains work harder than a video game. There are so many different ideas for relay races all over Pinterest. Working on team building and coordination with a 3-legged race would be a great way to get everyone outside! A egg-on-a-spoon relay will work on focus, balance and give everyone a good laugh at the end! Don't forget to get yourself involved and leave your phone...
Dine, Wine & Brew!

Today I am taking over the blog! I am Tayler Eusebio, the office manager at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park™ at Kozy Rest. I have lived in Harrisville my entire life and I wanted to share some of my favorite places to go when I am not at the campground! The places I wanted to share with you aren't the best known but are definitely the best! If you're planning your trip for this summer, you will not want to miss out on these 3 locations!

I will start with DINE! My favorite restaurant is a great kept secret. Red Rock Falls is located in Slippery Rock, PA. It is family owned and has some of the best dishes you could ask for. Red Rock Falls is a transformed school house with charm and class. It is a BYOB restaurant, so plan ahead! My go-to order is French Onion Soup, a Tortellini Falls Salad (a chicken salad with fresh tortellii and warm ranch) and whatever looks best on their dessert platter. You get to see the dessert options before choosing, but regardless of what you pick, you will not b...

As we're getting ready for the 2019 camping season, we wanted to provide you with the top 5 camping must have's for this year! 

Everyone brings a cooler camping, right? With cooler prices on the rise with brands like Yeti and RTIC in the lead, we found something comparable that will allow your pockets to breath! Grizzly coolers may be the way to go when you are shopping for your next beverage carrier. They are 100% indestructable and come with a lifetime guarantee, not even Yogi Bear™ is getting in these coolers! You can get them in just about every color under the sun, how fun is that?! 

Number 2! This one really caught our eye because we're located in Pennsylvania and we know that camping nights can definitely get chilly, especially in a tent or pop-up camper! Mr. Heater Camping Heater may be the ideal way to stay warm on the spring and fall nights! He'd be handy to have at home in the garage and workshop as well! It's a small, portable heater that does not break the bank and...
