BRANSON, Mo., May 21, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Great Escapes RV Resorts Branson is bringing the future of family vacations to the Ozarks this summer with the unveiling of its dramatically expanded and reimagined luxury RV and glamping resort.

Located just 15 minutes from the center of town, the former Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park is situated on 65 shaded acres, offering a natural respite from Branson’s summertime crowds and traffic. It also is near some of the area’s most popular lakes and attractions.

With the completion of a multi-year expansion and makeover, the resort offers more to do and more ways to stay than any other RV and camping destination in the area. Parents can lounge in cabanas while their kids splash in the new resort-style pool. Lodging options abound with new luxury glamping cabins, covered wagons and a spacious vacation home. From the jumping pillow and Wibit floating obstacle course to scheduled activities, the fun is virtually endless.

“Great Escapes Branson has everything families have been wanting in an outdoor vacation,” said General Manager Cindy Logue. “The focus is on fun and entertainment with all the comforts of home, whether you are staying in your own RV or one of our new spacious, fully equipped luxury glamping cabins.”

Memory making is nonstop, especially with new activities including laser tag, outdoor movies and a full schedule of themed celebrations, such as Chocolate Extravaganza and Jurassic Week. Kids can enjoy sports of all sorts, ax throwing, gem mining and interactions with Biscuit, the resort’s costumed canine mascot.

According to Logue, the entire resort has been updated and refreshed. “Guests won’t recognize it,” she said. “Great Escapes has created an ultra-modern, luxury resort packed with amenities in a beautiful environment.”
