Visitors to Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park at Kozy Rest may notice that the campground is doing its part to protect the environment with motion-activated faucets and lights, its solar-heated swimming pool, its high-efficiency toilets, and its paperless reservation system.

Less noticeable, however, are the park’s energy-saving tankless water heaters and its walkways, all of which are made of all-natural materials.

Guests also may not notice that the park’s laser tag battlefield is made entirely of recycled or repurposed materials, including recycled tires, recycled building materials, and recycled playground equipment.

But while most guests may not notice all of these green initiatives, the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) did, and the organization presented the Quigley family, who own the park, with its Plan-It-Green Award for the second year in a row. The award recognizes the Quigleys’ extensive water and energy conservation and recycling initiatives.

While guests haven’t commented or said they come to the park specifically because they are embracing environmentally friendly business practices, park co-owner Gary Quigley said he believes his guests appreciate their efforts. “We do it because it’s the right thing to do,” he said.
