Improvements are continuing at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resort at Keystone Lake in Mannford, Okla.,, which will debut two 100-foot long water slides and two swimming pools when the park opens for the season Memorial Day weekend, according to an announcement from the park.
“The swimming pools and water slides will complement the Wibit, our massive floating aqua park playground developed in Germany that includes climbing structures, obstacle courses, slides and floating trampolines,” said Beth Ryan, who is managing the park with her husband, Bob; sons, Ben and Steven; and Steven’s wife, Courtiney.
Jellystone Park at Keystone Lake will offer season day passes for people who would like to come to enjoy the water play park and organized recreational activities during the summer months, including
The park features 75 RV and tent sites. Cabins are tentatively scheduled to be installed next year, Ryan said.
Future plans also call for construction of a 50-slip courtesy dock, a 150-slip marina, and a waterfront restaurant after the Ryans assess the level of public demand and interest in the additional planned improvements.
The Ryans said they have worked closely with Mannford Mayor Tyler Buttram, Town Administrator Mike Nunneley and both the local and Tulsa divisions of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to obtain all of the necessary entitlements as well as an extendable lease from the federal government.
