What You'll Get
For $35, today's deal gets you two nights of camping at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort (up to a $78 value), located in Van Buren, roughly a three-hour drive from Springfield.
With spring fast approaching, now is the prime 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 lend a sense of roughing it that a backyard can’t offer, guests still have access to electricity and a water hookup for charging emergency cell phones, washing up, and powering a travel-size particle accelerator at the Riverview campsite. For an additional fee, 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, where newfound woodsmen and longtime forest sprites swim, fish, kayak, and mix up Ozark-style cocktails. To prevent campers from resenting nature and its unnatural lack of modern conveniences, Jellystone offers free WiFi, two laundry rooms, and man-made 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, and 9-hole mini golf, a playground, and a swimming pool with a 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 28–31) or Independence Day celebrations (July 1–5). Campsite amenity and location upgrades are available for an additional cost.
