Safety should be priority number one when camping. Parents want to know whether this location is safe for everyone. Campground franchises that are not safe for children will be a concern for any parent. When you run a campground, you should make sure that it is adequately supplied with safety equipment, should a problem arise. First aid kits, life vests, defibrillators, and more safety supplies are just some of the essentials. By making sure that your campground is safe, it will become more kid-friendly.
Plenty of activities
While making sure your campground is safe will ease the concerns of parents, it will do little to attract children. You will want to include several activities that children will enjoy. Water activities are some of the most fun-filled excursions for campers. Include boats, canoes, and swim gear for young people. You will also want to include sporting activities and equipment for children to enjoy. Parents want to know that your campground has something to offer. If it doesn’t, it will make for a rather boring camping trip.
Free Wi-Fi Access
One of the most important aspects affecting campground franchises is access to Wi-Fi. While many families go camping to get away from the strains of technology, not every camper is the same. Some will need access to the internet for a variety of reasons. If you want your campground to be kid-friendly, free Wi-Fi is essential. This will help ease the concerns of camping families.
When you run a campground, you want to make it as appealing as possible. Families want to know that your campground is somewhere that is safe yet fun for everyone who might be making their trek there. If you follow some of these tips and more, you will make your campground much more kid-friendly.

Erv & Marilyn Banes – Frankenmuth, MI
We decided to convert to the Jellystone Park™ system in 1996 because the market conditions were changing. Several of our colleagues had converted and grown in the process. We found that by changing our customer base to families, rather than seniors, we expanded.
The advantage of a Jellystone Park™ is that it is so much more alive than the average park. Plu… Read more

Daren & Lorraine Carlson – Hocking Hills, OH
The Jellystone Park brand has made a huge difference in our business. If we had 50 more sites and more cabins, they’d be filled every weekend.
Rick Spear – Estes Park, COWe’ve been in the Jellystone Park franchise system for 20 years this year. It was a family endeavor to begin with, but over those 20 years we’ve seen significant growth of our campground. In particular, just the last three years in a row we’ve been up double digits, 10-11% points three years in a row. We’ve really been coming on strong, and continue to see good… Read more

In 2001, we began a unique challenge to build a campground on our family farm 35 miles inland from Myrtle Beach. People responded to our design of large concrete pads, full hook-ups, plenty of open space, and ultimate customer service. But we soon had “growing pains” with procedures and operations.
In 2003, we joined Jellystone Park™. The operations… Read more

Theresa Isaacson – Caledonia, WI
We’re going to be entering our 13th season, and I sure would hate to own a property without being Yogi branded. The reason we really like Jellystone Parks is because of the support behind us. With 80 other parks in the system, we have 80 sources of question-and-answer type people to go to. The support is wonderful. The franchise, the CJS system itself – their … Read more
Chip Smith – Monticello, IAWe got into the Jellystone Park brand at the beginning of last year. This is the end of our first season. We are pretty excited about it. What I like most about the brand is the fact that they are drawing in families from three hours away. They all know what we’re there for, and they’re willing to spend a longer time at our park than just the weekend. The inv… Read more
