Recently releasing its list of “The Best RV Parks in Every State,” Reader’s Digest has made it easy for road trippers and campers alike to tour through the U.S. without worry, knowing some top names have been recommended for great stays.  We’re happy to report that Yogi Bear’s North Texas Jellystone Park in Burleson has made the top of the list for Texas!

The popularity of RVing has spawned a huge market over recent years. It’s truly a vacation trend that’s on the rise. In 2017, it was revealed that over 550K RVs were purchased. As the interest grows, so too does the need for great places to park the RV and get the family into some fun-filled campground activities. There are many publications vying for the camping market on newsstands and online. It’s no wonder, then, that Reader’s Digest has taken an interest. The readership for this information is growing, along with the target market for RV material, camping details, and lifestyle articles of this nature.

Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts were established in 1969 – the first of which was based in Wisconsin. The name’s inspiration came when the owner overheard his kids watching the popular Yogi Bear cartoon. He established a meeting with the syndicators of the show to obtain permission for its use, and the rest is history! There are now 75 of these family-friendly parks throughout the U.S. and Canada, five of which are in Texas, and three of those are in the Hill Country. The Burleson location, in North Texas, is defined by Reader’s Digest as a perfect spot “…just 20 minutes from Fort Worth and 50 minutes from Dallas. The RV park has tons of activities like family dance parties, a water park, hay rides, laser tag, ga-ga ball, pools, and much more.” They also noted that Texas, itself, made their list for best states in which to take a road trip! But you didn’t have to tell us.
