History in the making...

The first Yogi Bear™ cartoon was
drawn by Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera
many years ago, followed closely by
the startup of our beloved Yogi Bear's
Jellystone Park™ Camp-Resorts.

This area has been designated for
our vintage statues of Yogi Bear
and friends.

Please feel free to explore
our part of cartoon and
camping history --
and don't forget
to take

The first Jellystone Park campground opened in 1969. The Yogi Bear statue seen at the campgrounds across the country was inspired by a cartoon on TV when Yogi said, "OK Boo Boo, let's get our pic-a-nic baskets ready, the campers are coming!"¹

Don't forget to wave back if you're in the area!
