The Jellystone Park at Niagara Falls campground has the most amenities and activities of any campground in the Niagara Falls area, plus a private shuttle to take guests to and from the falls. And this year, it’s about to get even better with 10 new glamping yurts, 13 new RV sites, and six new tent sites with water and electricity. Other improvements at the park this year include the addition of a Gaga ball pit to the campground’s playground.

“We keep raising the bar,” said park manager Jim Amadio, adding that campground staff are already gearing up for another busy camping season.

The Jellystone Park at Niagara Falls has many on-site amenities, including the largest inflatable water slide in Canada (34 feet tall); an 18-hole miniature golf course; and an all day recreation program every day from the end of June through Labor Day weekend. The park also has a day camp program that caters to local residents.

Jellystone Park locations, of course, are famous for their organized family activities and theme weekends with Yogi Bear, which help families create unique memories. Other amenities and activities at the Jellystone Park at Niagara Falls include a heated pool, a jumping pillow, pedal carts, a bounce house, arts and crafts projects, and plentiful interactions with Yogi Bear, Boo Boo Bear, Cindy Bear, and Ranger Smith.

Upcoming theme weekends include a “Medieval Mayhem” theme for Victoria Day weekend, May 17-19, with a royal tea party, knighting ceremonies, and jousting tournaments with Yogi Bear; an “Around the World” theme for Father’s Day weekend, June 14-16, with Scottish highland games, Canadian bobsled races, and sumo wrestling with the bears, while a “Bearlympics” is scheduled for Aug. 16-19 that will include a picnic basket relay race against Ranger Smith and a sandwich eating contest with Yogi Bear.
