On this episode of Campground of the Week, we are reviewing the Kozy Rest Jellystone in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
The Kozy Rest Jellystone is located in western Pennsylvania just a short 35 miles from the Ohio border. It’s about an hour north of Pittsburgh, and offers easy access for a day trip from the campground.
There is a ton of variety within the Jellystone franchise, and this campground is a great example of a quieter weekend getaway destination with a focus on family fun and activities. We think it is particularly well suited for folks who may typically camp in more rustic environments but are looking to experience Jellystone activities, amenities, and character interactions.
This is a nicely wooded country campground with a mix of transient and seasonal sites. Kozy Rest is neat and tidy, but expect a good deal of rules and procedures that keep it that way. Prices range from $40 for tent sites with no hookups to $85 for premium full hook up sites holiday or Halloween weekends. There are a ton of special deals offered throughout the year, so check out the website to see if you can find one that fits your camping schedule.
Activities and Amenities
Kozy Rest offers an activity wristband that can be purchased for $15 per child for the duration of your stay (up to 7 days). The wristband includes unlimited access to the jump pad, jump pillow, mini golf course, and bike rentals. Other amenities include…
- horse shoes
- shuffle board

- camp store
- dog park
- game room
Kozy Rest Jellystone also offers a full schedule of organized activities with weekly themes like Christmas in July, Dinosaur Discovery, Night at the Races, and From Oldies to 80s. During our visit we enjoyed crafts, potato sack races, bean bag tosses, and lots of visits with Yogi.
The Kozy Rest Jellystone has a fantastic website page that details all the great hiking, biking, and kayaking in the area. They highly recommend visiting…
- McConnells Mill State Park
- Lake Arthure
- Clear Creek State Forest
We also highly recommend a stop at Beans on Broad, a great coffee shop in nearby Grove City. We stocked up on some beans for the rest of our trip while we were here!
A big thanks to our sponsors for supporting weekly content for all our RV and camping fools…
We’ll see you at the campground,
