Cindy Bear says, “Get really close to nature when you camp in a tent at Jellystone Pelahatchie/Yogi on the Lake. Tent campers have access to all amenities, and low rates, too!”

Sure, Ranger Smith offers all kinds of camping supplies, groceries, chocolate and gifts, but if you are smarter than the av-er-age bear, you will pack everything you need before you leave the house.
