When my kids were younger, both of them absolutely adored Yogi Bear and his pal Boo Boo, we even have a black Lab named Yogi and Maltese cross named Boo Boo thanks to them! That obviously means that Jellystone Park is ALWAYS on our list of fun summer destinations – no matter what we do that year. For those of you that don’t know – Jellystone Park is based on Yellowstone Park!

And whether you’re a Yogi Bear fan or not, and no matter how old you are, Yellowstone Park is one of those places that you absolutely have to visit at least once in your life! We usually stay outside the park for a week or more at a time, and of course we have our ‘pic-a-nic’ baskets stocked full of bait intended to lure Yogi from his cave and enjoy day tripping or a couple of nights in the park.
A friend recently asked me for inspiration so I’ve consulted with mine and put together a list of all their favorite places to go and things to do to help her out and make sure her kids have as much fun as mine always do.
My first word is to make sure you ALWAYS have plenty of water, a pic-a-nic basket with snacks and real food...
