Jellystone Park Camp Resort Caledonia

CALEDONIA -- There is nothing like a summer weekend in Wisconsin, away from the city, with the family, in the great outdoors. As the demand for camping increases exponentially across the state, Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in Caledonia is there to meet the needs of the people.

Nestled in a perfect remote location between Milwaukee and Chicago, Jellystone currently sits on 100+ acres of land, making it the ideal summer destination for people across the Midwest and even the country. Operating at full capacity and unable to meet the levels of demand, owner, Randy Isaacson, along with RCEDC, the village of Caledonia, and several other parties, capitalized on an opportunity to create a much needed expansion project.

“BLP has a diverse group of business minded professionals that contribute to making the loan application process as smooth as possible. A special thanks to Thomas Van Gent.”

With the capital secured, Isaacson plans to add 150 acres of land, 100 new campsites, 50 new cabins, a new banquet facility, and a new attraction called ‘Yogi’s Cave.’ They will also upgrade the existing water park and add a five-and-a-half-acre swim pond with beach, volleyball courts and WIBIT (large floatation device).

"Jellystone Park is something you have to experience to believe. It's exciting to see this organization expand their long-time presence within the Caledonia community. This expansion will allow more people to experience the natural beauty of our community through recreation and camping."

Jim Dobbs
Caledonia Village President

With assistance from Business Lending Partners (BLP), Isaacson was able to secure the necessary financing. Most of this capital will go towards Building Construction and Purchase of Land. Trevor Bohland, Senior Vice President at CCF Bank, helped to orchestrate the completion of the loan.

“Jellystone Park has created an incredible reputation for bringing families together. It was my privilege to work with BLP in helping to provide the funds needed to grow this amazing experience.”

Jellystone Campgrounds is a chain of high-quality franchised resort-type campgrounds. Isaacson and his family own and operate the Caledonia, WI location and, since acquisition in 2009, have generated an enormous amount of success. In 2014 the Isaacsons won Park of the Year at the Franchise Symposium.

This loan will help provide capacity for a larger audience each year, generating more revenue for Jellystone as well as the surrounding communities. Construction is fully underway and is expected to be completed July 2019.
