Erik Leander and Kari Strohmeyer purchased the 30-acre, 91-site park from Ted and Jo Stazak, who had previously owned and operated the 91-site campground for 18 years.

“This has just always been a dream of mine, to own and manage a campground,” Leander, 42, says.

Leander previously managed the Hickory Hill Campground in Spencer, Indiana for about a year and a half.

“Kari is new to camping, but she decided to join me on this adventure,” Leander says.

Both Leander and Strohmeyer like the brand appeal of having a Jellystone Park as well as its focus on providing organized family activities and themed weekends with Yogi Bear, which help families create unique memories, according to a press release. Activities include arts and crafts, scavenger hunts and face painting, as well as evening campfires and tuck-ins with the bears.

Halloween themed weekends are scheduled for the next three weekends and will include a haunted house.

The Jellystone Park at Raintree Lake also has numerous onsite amenities, including a swimming pool, a miniature golf course, a nine-acre fishing lake with boat rentals as well as basketball and sand volleyball courts and horseshoe pits. For more information, visit www.jellystoneraintreelake.com.
