I remember the first time going camping in an RV when I was a kid. My Nanny took me Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park™ Camp-Resort in Robert, Louisiana and it was a blast.

I have fond memories of that weekend and a really fun place. And now I'm a little saddened at what I just read on social media. There's a big change coming to Jellystone Park.

Now, the campground isn't going anywhere, but the name is.

The Tangipahoa Parish-based resort made an announcement on Facebook that at the end of the month, it will no longer be a part of the Jellystone system.

As you can see in the post, by March the park will be rebranded as "Tangi Pines Family Campground."

The owners have promised the same great staff and level of service, just no character interactions.

But sadly, after 47 years, there will be no Yogi or Boo Boo or Ranger Smith on the premises. Although change can be a good thing.
