Bring the family and get a hug from Yogi Bear at North Texas (NTX) Jellystone Park.
NTX Jellystone Park and other Jellystone Parks were created to bring the whole family together for memories to cherish for a lifetime. The all-inclusive family parks are ready to serve you and your family this summer and throughout the year! Here is the scoop on North Texas Jellystone Park and the five other parks in Texas.
We had an old-fashioned family camping weekend at North Texas Jellystone Park in Burleson, TX, located 15 minutes south of Fort Worth and about 40 minutes west of Dallas. It was named the 2017 Campground of the Year for management, operations, appearance, and performance excellence. I can attest to that – the entire team here was spot on! If you’re looking for an ideal location to create lasting family memories and awesome family camping, put Jellystone Park in Burleson, TX, on your list to visit!
Brody and I were invited to spend a fun weekend at North Texas Jellystone Park by GoRving and the park, including lodging, meals, and all the fun we could get in!

How can you not resist Yogi Bear parks in Texas? He’s such an icon that every kid and adult loves.
Even though my son had a splint on his left hand, he managed to have the time of his life. And who can resist getting their picture taken with Yogi Bear?
This Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Campground at North Texas Jellystone Park was the highlight of Brody’s spring. I’m not sure how summer is going to top this!
Cabins And RV Rentals At North Texas Jellystone Park
Our cabin (behind us in the above photo) has a full kitchen and one bath and will sleep 6-8 comfortably. Brody had the loft all to himself, and I took the bedroom. I also like plenty of outdoor space for the kids (and adults) to play, with a picnic table for each cabin. This area would be the perfect place for a family reunion, plus you would be right next to Pirates Cove.
Cornhole was right there, so we took advantage. He beats me every time!
Travel Pro Tip: A variety of pet-friendly RV sites are available.

Which Jellystone Park Is The Best In Texas?
There are five other Jellystone Parks in Texas, all individually owned. Some may have a lazy river, water slides, splash pads, mini-golf, or even a water park next to it. But one thing all Jellystone Parks in Texas have in common – is it’s the perfect place for family fun the whole time you are there, and I’ll almost guarantee you’ll find an active atmosphere at all of them. Plus, you’ll for sure get a hug from Yogi Bear!
Jellystone Parks is the ideal location to have a family reunion. Bring your RV or stay in a comfortable cottage. Which park is the best? You be the judge – I’ve only been to two. But I’d definitely vote for the one with the most activities for kids.
