Local Campground Named 2015 National “Park of the Year”

The National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) recently honored Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park at Kozy Rest with the Medium-Sized “Park of the Year” Award for the third time in five years. The award is presented to RV parks and campgrounds that deliver an extraordinary guest experience as a result of all-around excellence in operations, professionalism, marketing, customer service and industry involvement.

“We do everything possible to better our park and provide guests with a truly memorable experience each and every year. We’re pleased to hear on a regular basis that Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park at Kozy Rest is the neatest, friendliest park our guests have ever visited,” said Gary Quigley, owner and one of the founding family members. “Winning the ARVC ‘Park of the Year’ Award in 2011, 2014 and 2015 reinforces that we are successful in exceeding industry standards and delivering a first-class customer service experience.” 

“We’re humbled to receive such acknowledgment from the Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park system in our first five years as a franchise,” said Quigley. “Typically, the camp-resorts that win some of these awards have been members of the system for a long, long time.” Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park at Kozy Rest is one of more than 80 Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park locations across the United States and Canada. While it consistently ranks among the top camp- resorts and facilities within the system, the Quigley family and their 28 staff members continuously work to improve the amenities, facilities and activities at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park at Kozy Rest year-round. Their regular enhancements and environmentally friendly building practices have recently earned the camp-resort further distinction from ARVC as a Plan-it-Green Friendly Park! Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park at Kozy Rest is the first green-friendly park in Pennsylvania and one of only 23 campgrounds throughout the nation to have earned this distinction.
