Camping is one of Canada's most beloved pastimes, followed closely by mountain excursions, eating poutine, and teaching beavers to vote. Ratify your wish for recreation with today’s Groupon to Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in Kingston, located roughly a 90-minute drive from Halifax. Choose between the following options:
• For $40, you get a two-night campsite rental valid Sunday–Thursday night (up to a $104 value).
• For $45, you get a two-night campsite rental valid Friday–Saturday night (up to a $104 value).
Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park's rates are based on a family of two adults and three children; extra campers older than 3 years old will incur a charge of $5 per person.
Garnering a slew of awards, Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park welcomes family, friends, and local picnic-basket enthusiasts alike to the splendorous climes of the Annapolis Valley. Framed by a forest of 50- to 80-foot evergreens, the campground splits into 35-foot-wide clean, grassy campsites able to accommodate up to 50-foot camping units. The breathtaking scenery and real-live grass and dirt of the unserviced sites (a $40/night value) lend a sense of roughing it that camping in a backyard or local garden centre can’t offer, and the deluxe neighbourhood plots (a $52/night value) give campers water, sewage, and 50-amp electric hookups to keep emergency cell phones and travel-sized particle accelerators charged.
Instead of playing kick the can with raccoons, youngsters find amusement at more than 120 supervised activities each week, including chocolate-bar bingo, pancake breakfasts, and themed weekends, such as Country and Western Hoe Down Weekend on July 22-24 and Candy Land Weekend on August 5-7. The adventurous can also take advantage of the many Annapolis Valley attractions just a short drive away, such as the Bay of Fundy, Oaklawn Farm Zoo, and Upper Clements Park.
