The Adirondack Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in North Hudson, N.Y., will mark its 25th anniversary soon, the Sun reported.

The 25th anniversary ceremony is at 3 p.m. on Saturday (May 27) at the campground, and is open to all.

The camp opened in 1992 as Northway Exit 29 Campground, became Paradise Pines in 1993, then Adirondack Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resort at Paradise Pines in 1997.

“We’re celebrating 25 years in paradise,” said co-owner Gina Lenhard said. “Several people who were campers in the beginning with us will be coming in. We’re going to have a DJ and a puppet show. We’re bringing back a lot of the things we did when we first opened.”

Gina and her husband, Michael Lenhard, have been running the campground since it opened in 1992.

“There were 80 sites when we opened, we now have 170, including cabin rentals and yurts,” Mrs. Lenhard said. “We have two pools and a waterslide.”

She said the anniversary celebration is open to the public and will be a gala event.

“We’re having a cake, finger foods, and a wine-and-cheese party, but it’s BYOB, because we can’t serve alcohol,” she said.

“We can all share stories and photos from where we started and where we are today.”
