Delaware Welcomes First Jellystone Park
Two years ago, Cedar Creek Landing Campground opened its doors and became one of Delaware's newest and most modern campgrounds, with amenities that include a large swimming pool, playground, volleyball, game room, camp store, laundry facility, and 277 spacious big rig friendly RV sites, all with full hook ups including free cable television and wireless Internet service.
But when the park reopens April 15 for the 2011 summer camping season, it will gain even greater notoriety as the first and only campground in Delaware to join the Jellystone Park chain, according to a news release.
"We think this is the right move for us," said park owner Brent Fannin, who renamed the campground Jellystone Park Camp Resort at Delaware Beaches. "Jellystone Parks are known nationally as being fun family oriented parks, and with our close proximity to the beach and all the activities offered in and around our campground, we thought the Jellystone Park model was the perfect fit."
Jellystone Park at Delaware Beaches, located near Lincoln, Del., for its part, will offer organized activities every weekend beginning April 15, with daily activities and themed weekends beginning Memorial Day weekend running through Labor Day weekend.
Upcoming themed weekend events include Memorial Day Weekend, the official kickoff to summer with Yogi and Friends, a Father's Day superhero contest June 19-20, a Mardi Gras weekend June 24-26, a family Olympics weekend July 8-10, a Christmas in July weekend with a campsite decorating contest on July 22-24 and a Death by Chocolate Weekend Aug. 5-7. Halloween weekend events, with trick or treating and campsite decorating contests, are also scheduled for the last two weekends in October.
The Chamber of Commerce for Greater Milford will hold a ribbon cutting celebration at 2 p.m., April 6, while the park officially opens April 15.
