Burleson Jellystone Park Voted Best in Country
Launched in 1969, the Jellystone Park system is the second largest chain of campgrounds in the U.S., with 82 campgrounds, more than 17,000 campsites and vacation rentals in 32 states and four Canadian provinces. The North Texas Jellystone Park Rustic Creek Ranch has won the company’s Camp-Resort of the Year award and Entrepreneur of the Year award.
Owner Ronnie Bowyer and his staff made the decision to join the Jellystone Park network as a way of targeting families that wanted a fun place to camp with lots of organized activities and wholesome family entertainment. They added a laser tag area, gaga ball pit and an air zone with inflatable slides and jumpers. They even built a 26,000-square-foot water play park called Pirate’s Cove, with seven water slides, a 700-foot-long lazy river and a paintball play area next to the campground.
A texting program alerts guests on a real-time basis to bear sightings anywhere in the campground so that they don’t miss them while they are camping, as well as signup opportunities for activities. This amenity is now in use at Jellystone Parks nationwide.
