If you're smarter than the average bear, this Escape will be a no-brainer: Get ready to pack up the kids and spend a couple of nights sleeping under the stars at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort.
At this Marion, North Carolina, oasis at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains—picture perfect enough to be on Sunday-morning TV—choose to spend your two nights in a cabin for up to six people ($185), on an RV site for up to four people ($80), or in a tent site for up to four people ($68). In all cases, you'll get a two-day resort pass for four people, which includes paddleboat and kayak rentals as well as pool and water slide access—the 300-foot Super Duper Triple Looper water slide is lightning fast.
Everyone will sleep soundly after a full day of activities that cover far more than just the bear necessities: Think fishing, crafts, horseshoes, dances, swimming, s'mores roasts, volleyball, bingo, catching a flick at the outdoor movie theater, mini golf, and more.
Yogi himself also makes plenty of appearances, so keep your pic-a-nic baskets in sight while you pose for photo ops.
Off the campgrounds, it'd be a boo-boo not to explore everything the surrounding area has to offer. Water sports enthusiasts will find a home on Lake James; hikers can traverse Pisgah National Forest; explorers can uncover the stalactites and stalagmites of Linville Caverns; and sightseers will enjoy a leisurely drive along Blue Ridge Parkway.
Yogi may be a cartoon, but the fun your family will have at Jellystone is as real as it gets.
