Jellystone Parks Renting Out Tiny Houses in Summer and Fall

Thu Apr 13, 2017

Custom-designed tiny house RVs will be available for rent this summer and fall at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp Resorts in New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia.

“We’re trying something new,” Northgate Resorts CEO Zachary Bossenbroek says, according to a story by Woodalls Campground Management. “We think consumers are going to love these units.”

Northgate is a family-owned Grand Rapids, Michigan company that owns eight Jellystone Parks, mostly in the eastern half of the country.

The tiny house RVs, which sleep four to five and include kitchens and bathrooms, are styled by Kansas City designer Kristen Rieke in the themes of the bears with a Yogi Bear Suite, a Boo Boo Bear Suite and a Cindy Bear Suite.
