In our pursuit to keep everyone on our trip entertained our next stop on the road was in Caledonia, WI where we stayed at a Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park. Throughout our trip we ended up staying at two Jellystone Parks - this one was much better - more of a resort than the other one but both were very clean and had a friendly staff.
Of course Liam was in heaven at this campground - there was almost TO MUCH to do that by the end of the day he had had more than his share of fun. We camped here for two nights and were on the go the whole time.
Each morning you could wake up Yogi:
and then put him to bed at the end of the day:
In between that there was a large list of activities you could participate in OR just play at the playground or in the pool. There was also a mini golf course that was free to the campers.
This campground is pretty big, our space was very spacious and that weekend we were there it was packed. It was nice though because we had stocked up on groceries at Costco before we arrived so for a few days we were off the road and just enjoying being together.
A few weeks ago we did some local camping, about an hour away from us, at Hunting Island State Park in South Carolina and I will say it's AWESOME! We loved it. We had checked it out a few years ago, but just recently camped there - we were so lucky to get a spot in the loop that has close beach access. We camped here in October and that weekend was pretty chilly and since it's so close to the water it was pretty breezy, so we certainly weren't going in the water (although some people did) but we enjoyed every second of that weekend and hope to go back again and again.
We camped in site #36 and we will always try and get that site in the future if we can it's in a great location, it was a little tricky backing into (but we're experts now) but it was so spacious.
Here's a picture from inside the camper so you can get an idea of what our "water view" was like or how close we were to the water.
and here's another one
here's a quick glimpse at life in the camper:
and here's some pics from our walk on the beach:
Here's some pics from around the campground:
there is a lighthouse in the state park and if you are camping in the campground you do not have to pay an additional entrance to get into that park of the park. You do have to pay (I think) $2 dollars though to walk up the lighthouse though. Here's some pics from that part of the park:
and back to the campground, here's some pictures around the campfire that night.
Liam is starting to take pictures and he's doing a great job!
That's a thumbs up to this campground, we can't WAIT to go back!
