Yogi Bear Jellystone Park Mill Run, PA
So finally my family took a family vacation, don't know that it was much of a vacation only being 3 nights & 4 days in a cabin with 8 other people but it was fun all the same. The start of the trip I made a game for the 4 hour drive, there was 4 families, 12 people total and 3 different vans. The game was a lot of fun, it had picture's for the kids and challenges like get 3 semi trucks to honk at you, make the car next to you dance, take a picture of entering a new state, find a tow truck in action, find a betty boop decal, a baby on board sign and a old car were just some of the things we were hunting for.
Once we arrive at the cabin and unloaded the first thing the kids wanted to find out was what family won the game. I'm proud to say your family van did!!. I had made each kid a bag with goodies, something my grandmother did for us on our camping trip as kids. They were fun to make and even better seeing their faces when they saw the bag of goodies made and picked out just for them.
When I was young my grandparents, father, brother, aunt, uncle and 2 cousin's would go camping every year to some bluegreen fest. So my brother and I were talking and got my 2 cousin's in on it and a vacation of camping was planned! It was not 3 campers like when we were kids, but a large cabin that had 2 bedrooms and 2 lofts, 2 baths and a kitchen. It was a little rocky with the planning a agreeing on what to pack and what to get when we got there. In the end most was bought once we got there.
The camp had a lot to do to keep everyone busy, from pools and water play areas, to a train and firetruck ride, movie night under the stars, bingo candy night, coloring contest, put-put, tubing without snow, dance party, breakfast with Yogi, and the game room just to name a few things that we did during out 3 night/4day stay.
The last night my husband and I made dinner while everyone went on the firetruck ride and the night ended playing our horse race game with kids winning candy if their horse won the race. I think in the eyes of 5 kids all under 5 this was a great vacation!
I would suggest a vacation like with for anyone with young kids, everyone was really nice, the cabins were well taken care of and the price was good too. $943 total for the cabin and we split it 4 ways of course we got one of the biggest cabins they have so for a family of 4 you can get a much cheaper cabin.
It was memories made and fun for all, enjoy the pictures.
