Happy Campers Category on Nov. 18 ‘Jeopardy’

November 19, 2009 by   - () 1 Comment

thumb_wallpaper2Knowledge of camping was worth money to contestants on the Wednesday (Nov. 18) episode of CBS TV’s top game show “Jeopardy.”

 But unfortunately, the three contestants could only correctly answer one of the four questions in the category “Happy Campers.” 

 How would you fare?

 $400 Answer: How sweet to breath the fresh, chocolaty air at this Conewago campground in Pennsylvania.

Question: What is Hershey campground?

 $800 Answer: Happy campers can be found at sites named this, like the park where Yogi Bear plotted to steal picnic baskets.

Question: What is Jellystone Park?

 $1,200 Answer: This California national park’s lodgepole campground is two miles from the giant forest, home of the General Sherman tree.

Question: What is Sequoia.

 $1,600 Answer: The largest KOA site is near the ginormous freshwater lake in Florida.

Question: What is Lake Okeechobee.

 $2,000 Answer remained covered.

A contestant correctly answered the $1,600 question. Another contestant was initially credited for correctly answering the first question by saying “What is Hersheypark,” but was later docked the amount when host Alex Trebek said that the answer she gave is not the “campground.”

    FABULOUS! I get great pleasure when I see the campground industry displayed before the eyes of the public. The more they are reminded of camping, the more likely they’ll go camping. This is just fabulous!!!

    (Just too bad the questions stumped ’em!)
