Camping Foods
There’s just something about food cooked over a fire that makes it taste so much better. And here at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone ParkTM at Kozy Rest, we believe that cooking at your campsite should be quick, easy and painless – not to mention delicious.

Whether you’re staying in a tent, cabin or RV, camping doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice quality or taste for convenience. In fact, there are so many yummy foods you can make if you’ve got some kitchen essentials and a roaring campfire! Most of our lodging includes a fire ring outside and depending on your choice of stay, you could reserve a cabin with a full service kitchen!
We know you might have some go-to favorite camping foods – like s’mores or mountain pies – but here are a few new recipes for you to try this season.

Rule #1: Pets must be kept on a leash at all times. Some people may not want to greet your furry friend, so keeping them leashed during walks will help make all of our campers happy. If a fellow camper feels comfortable and your pup is friendly, they may ask to say hi!
