Camping it up is a grand American pastime involving tutti-frutti hats, pink-flamingo lawn ornaments, Bette Midler songs, and Eurovision. Experience another kind of camp with today's Groupon. For $35, you get two nights of camping (up to a $78 value) at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in Van Buren, Missouri, roughly a 4 and a half-hour drive from Little Rock.
With spring about to erupt like a man-eating shark from the ocean, now is the ideal time to plan a trip that takes advantage of the great outdoors. Spend two nights with family, friends, or local bear enthusiasts at a Jellystone Park campsite. While the breathtaking scenery and real live dirt give you a sense of "roughing it" that your backyard can’t offer, you’ll still have access to 30 amps of electricity and a water hookup for charging emergency cell phones, washing up, and powering a travel-sized particle accelerator. Campsites are available on the banks of the Current River, a spring-fed and crystal-clear part of the Ozarks National Scenic Riverways. Campers can head down to the exclusive camper beach area for river access at a huge gravel bar, where newfound woodsmen and longtime forest sprites swim, fish, kayak, and mix up gravel cocktails. To prevent campers from resenting nature and its unnatural lack of modern conveniences, Jellystone offers free Wi-Fi, two laundry rooms, and clean restrooms.
A veritable activity feast awaits at the campgrounds for pacifying restless children, whiling away warm afternoons, and keeping thoughts away from dreaded future chest waxings. An arcade features a weekend video-game tournament, while nine-hole mini golf, a playground, and a swimming pool with kid-centric splash pool provide hours of memory-forming entertainment. The not-your-average cherry on top of this vacation basket is Yogi Bear himself, who starts each day by helping campers raise the United States, Missouri, and Jellystone Park flags, followed by an ursine rendition of the Pledge of Allegiance. Campers can also climb aboard an evening hayride with the erudite bear to discuss hay, sunsets, and string theory. Select weekends feature kid-friendly themes that make daily activities all the more costumed.
Today's deal is not valid for Memorial Day weekend (May 27–30) or Independence Day celebrations (July 1–5).
