We Welcome Pets: Pet Etiquette
July 16th, 2018 5:33 pm
We love pets at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone ParkTM at Kozy Rest. Big or small, we love them all! While they may not be able to say please or thank you, there are a few etiquette rules they can follow to ensure everyone has a fun and relaxing stay.
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!
Rule #2: Never leave your pet unattended. If you and your family want to go enjoy one of the many attractions close by offsite, your buddy must also go with you. Also, we ask that you do not leave your pet alone inside your lodging at any time as well. Keep your pup with you during your stay; they’ll enjoy camping just as much as you!
Rule #3: Pets are not allowed in any of the campground facilities, with the exception of designated pet-friendly cabins. Some of our...

National Camping Month: Camping Safety Tips
June 18th, 2018 9:45 am

We really want you and your family to enjoy your vacation and get the most out of your experience at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone ParkTM at Kozy Rest. Safety is our top priority and should be yours, too! We encourage you to follow these tips to ensure you have a fun and safe summer at the campground.


Bug Off. There’s nothing like a few itchy bites to put a damper on your day. Fight the bite by applying insect repellant throughout the day or light citronella candles while you’re hanging out around a fire at night. Ticks are a bug that you need to keep an eye out for in Pennsylvania, so check regularly for ticks along sock and cuff lines and in hair. To help prevent and spot them, wear light-colored clothing, pants and long-sleeved shirts.

Bright Idea. The sun is great for warm temperatures and our favorite summer activities, but its UV rays can be both harsh and harmful. You even need to be careful during overcast days, because although the sun is hidden, you’r...

National Camping Month: The Benefits of Camping
June 5th, 2018 1:05 pm
Vacations are a must! Everyone needs to take a break from their routine to relax and rejuvenate. Camping, specifically, provides a ton of significant health benefits.
Whether you’re a seasoned pro or first-timer, camping offers you a way to get away from home and enjoy an outdoor adventure without external distractions. Camping can also help you live a longer, healthier life.
Here are just a few of the many health benefits that camping offers:
Fresh Air
Breathe in, breathe out. So fresh and clear! Being surrounded by an abundance of trees means more oxygen, which leads to a release of serotonin. Studies show this can lead to improved blood pressure, better digestion and a stronger immune system.
