Hey there, Boo Boo!

As you pack up the family and head out for fun-filled adventures this spring and summer, there’s one thing you may want to bring along for a little entertainment. Typically this person, err…character, is found at the fictional Jellystone Park. He and his trusty companion sneak around looking for pic-a-nic baskets. Yes, we’re talking about the famous Yogi Bear! His movie was released in December and is now out on DVD – the perfect movie to bring with you while RVing this season. Adults and kids of all ages are sure to enjoy this movie. Yogi Bear made his debut in 1958 as a supporting character in The Huckleberry Hound Show, but eventually became more popular than Huckleberry Hound, and in 1961Yogi was awarded his own show.

While you can’t actually go to Jellystone Park, you CAN go to Yellowstone National Park! Located primarily in the state of Wyoming, though it also extends into Montana and Idaho, Yellowstone was the first national park in the world. It is known for its wildlife and its many geothermal features, especially Old Faithful Geyser. Hundreds of species of mammals, birds, fish and reptiles have been documented, including several that are either endangered or threatened.  The vast forests and grasslands also include unique species of plants. Grizzly bears, wolves, and free-ranging herds of bison and elk live in the park. Yellowstone has numerous recreational opportunities, including hiking, camping, boating, fishing and sightseeing. This park is a definite must in your RV travel adventures.

No matter if you’re going to Yellowstone National Park, or another destination across the country, why not take along one of America’s favorite characters! Your kids will thank you, and you’ll get to walk around saying “I'm smarter than the average bear!"
