Half the reason we go on vacation is take a ton of photos to make our friends jealous (kidding, but not totally kidding) – that’s why we’ve put together a list of the top 5 most Instagrammable moments for you to have on your next vacation at Jellystone Park™ in Gardiner, NY! Scroll down for inspiration, and start picking out your favorite filters!

5. The Yogi Bear™ Statue

Located by the Camp Store, the iconic Yogi Bear™ statue is one of the first things you see upon arriving at Jellystone Park™ Lazy River. Although the statue could never replace Yogi Bear™ himself, this welcoming replica is the perfect photo opportunity for you and your family – towards the beginning, during the middle, or at the end of your stay!

4. Making S’mores

Family memories are made around the campfire. Roast marshmallows and eat tons of delicious s’mores, share stories, sing songs, or just enjoy the great outdoors! No matter how you like to camp, taking a photo with your s’mores creation is a must!

3. The Bears

Who could forget about Yogi Bear™, Cindy Bear™, and Boo Boo™?! The bears will be present at select activities throughout the day, so don’t miss out on your opportunity to get a picture with one (or all) of the bears during your stay! A photo with the bears is sure to get a lot of likes!


2. Sunset over the ‘Gunks

There’s nothing more relaxing at the end of a long day than parking it on your site or front porch and watching the sun set. The Hudson Valley provides a beautiful backdrop for the end of another great day at Jellystone Park™! (photo courtesy of @nay_nay724)


1. Sliding Down the Water Slides

Whether you have a water proof case to snap a pic of yourself zooming down the slides, or you have a friend get a photo from the bottom, the water slides are the most Instagrammable moment at Jellystone Park™ and scream BEST VACATION EVER!

We hope this inspiration helps you become the envy of your friends, and eventually a social media influencer—just make sure to remember us when you’ve made it big! And be sure to tag us in your photos! #lazyriverny @lazyriverny
