Summary:

Just minutes from the famous Opryland Hotel and Convention Center, Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park is a great place to stay while visiting Nashville, Tenn. Jellystone Parks are known for Yogi Bear, of course, but also for their family-friendly environment, great staff and well-kept grounds.

This park is no exception. We visited during the off season, which yielded a much quieter setting. But, we still enjoyed the playground, large park roads for bike riding and the miniature golf.

Peak season features theme weekends, the pool, a jumping pillow, Yogi and friends appearances and the famous "Hey Rides."

  • Very close to the Opryland Hotel and Convention Center and Opry Mills Mall. These are great free places to walk around, especially on rainy days.
