OCEAN CITY, Md., Feb. 7, 2022 — Blue Water, a Maryland-based firm specializing in the development and management of campgrounds, hotels, and attractions, recently acquired Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park™ at Mammoth Cave, in continuation of its partnership with the Jellystone Park™ brand. This property, located in Cave City, is Blue Water’s first in Kentucky and its second Jellystone Park™ collaboration, after Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park™ at Delaware Beaches, which was acquired in November 2020.
Just minutes from the world’s longest known cave system, Mammoth Cave National Park, Jellystone Park™ at Mammoth Cave’s guests can expect endless opportunities for adventure and camping memories that will last a lifetime at this year-round property. Guests can choose from RV sites, camping sites, and over 90 cabin rentals for their stay. Events and activities that are a staple of Jellystone Park™ campgrounds are hosted throughout the season and are always a hit with the whole family.
Attractions at the park consist of a waterslide, jumping pillows, mini-golf, playgrounds, and a 2.3-acre lake with a sandy beach and 1,300 sq.ft. Wibit inflatable sports park that costs $10 per 50-minute session. Guests can also plan birthdays or appearances from Yogi Bear™, Cindy Bear™, or Boo Boo™ to make a special birthday trip even more memorable!
“We are so excited to bring the Blue Water standard of customer service and unique camping experiences to an equally unique location,” said Todd Burbage, Blue Water’s CEO. “The addition of Jellystone Park™ at Mammoth Cave to Blue Water’s portfolio of camping destinations is a wonderful opportunity for us to provide memorable guest experiences in wonderful destinations for campers and glampers. We can’t wait to share what else we have in store as we continue to expand expeditiously and continuously cultivate management of fantastic properties in extraordinary destinations.”
Blue Water continues its ongoing charitable efforts to stay involved with the communities where their properties are located and recently finished a highly successful donation drive at the campground for the victims of the Kentuckytornadoes.
