Yogi Bear’s Jellystone ParkTM in Branson MO – FAQ
Yes, they are allowed on the east side of the campground, as well as anywhere on the west side that does not entail putting your mat down on grass. In the growing season, mats deprive the grass of sunlight and oxygen, which results in dead spots wherever the mat was laying. We have very nice grass in most spots on our west side and we want to keep it that way for all of our guests. Please refrain from putting a mat down on grass. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
Well, that depends on the time of year!
During the peak season of Memorial Day through the start of school, he will be around a couple of times of day during the week and 3 times on weekends!
During the shoulder seasons…..Early May, September, October, etc. he will be around at least once a day and twice on the weekends.
Now, these are just general guidelines……sometimes he feels like coming out even more and you will see him several times a day!
If you just can’t get enough Yogi, be sure and talk to one of the staff about having him appear at your birthday party, or having him come tuck the kids in at night or wake them up in the morning!
Remember……Yogi isn’t the only bear that lives around here! Keep an eye out for Boo Boo as well, and maybe even Cindy Bear on occasion!
Sure! We love when people come check out our park.
However, there are a couple of things to remember.
First, all guests must stop and the Ranger Station and register with us. That is extremely important for several reasons.
Second, all guests will be charged $10 for a day pass. If they show up after 5:00, then they will only be charged $5.
If guests are seen at your site that have not stopped in to register, they will be charged to your site.
We very much appreciate your cooperation in this matter. If is safest and best for everyone.
No, we do not have cable TV.
We have focused our efforts on WiFi instead. There is ample internet service here for you to stream your favorite internet TV services.
If you have an over-the-air antenna, you should be able to pick up 15-20 TV stations.
If you have your own satellite receiver, there are many places in the park where you will be able to get a great signal…..primarily on the West Side.
Please remember that our WiFi is a service provided by an outside vendor. Although it has proven to be very reliable, there are times when the service is unavailable. This can be as a result of a storm, routine maintenance, etc., etc. We are always trying to improve the quality and reliability of our WiFi…..and have one of the highest customer satisfaction score for WiFi service in the entire franchise………but we don’t want you to be upset if there is a temporary outage!
We do not.
There are places that we encourage our guests to gather in the event of severe weather, but we do not have a certified storm shelter.
This is a tough question to answer since Branson is so spread out!
We are a little less than 1/2 hour from the farthest attraction, which is Silver Dollar City.

This method can help you avoid getting stuck in the traffic that can sometimes plagues the area and can save you lots of time!
