Standard RV Site
Want to bring the RV and still set up a tent? Our Standard RV Sites allow the best of both worlds! If you bring an RV, this site type allows pets - so your furry friends can join in on the fun! Including water and 20/30 amp electric hook-ups for your RV, this site type has everything you may need.

On the other hand, if you're looking to make something homemade at your campsite, we've outlined some yummy recipes you must try. Although burgers and hot dogs are a staple camping meal, Yogi Bear™ and Friends recommend these tasty bites:
