Cincinnati, OH – Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts, which feature playgrounds and pizzerias among its amenties, has added its sixth campgrounds in Pouch Cove, N.L.

The Pouch Cove location was one of two the company recently opened, the other being Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg, Tenn.

The new franchisee in Pouch Cove is David Snow, who is converting his existing 450-site Marine Park campground to a Jellystone Park. It is the sixth Jellystone Park in Canada.

The campgrounds feature such amenities as RV sites, cabins, glamping tents, pools, fishing ponds, outdoor movies, playgrounds and pizzerias.


“My goal is to bring camping to the next generation and get kids outside,” said Heather Blankenship, owner of the new Pigeon Forge location. “Having a franchise that is so kid-oriented will help drive my mission.”

Launched in 1969, Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts is the second largest chain of campgrounds in the United States, with 85 campgrounds in 31 states and five Canadian provinces. The parks are franchised through Leisure Systems, Inc., a subsidiary of The Park River Corporation.
