The Isaacson family is on a mission to wow families with their million-plus light show.
Editor's note: We ran this story in December 2010, but updated it with current information. The Isaacson family's Christmas light project at Jellystone Park, 8425 State Road 38, started small last year, but grew at an exponential rate this year after numerous trips to hardware stores. What did it take to make the Wisconsin Christmas Carnival of Lights at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort? Videographer Aj Randall gets a behind-the-scenes look at the festive display.

The cost for seeing the light show this year is $15 per carload up to 8 people and $22 for larger vehicles and mini buses.

Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park, 8425 State Highway 38, will get two new water slides and a handful of new cabins will replace campsites. The Village Board unanimously approved the site plan review at a board meeting Tuesday. Randy Isaacson, the owner of the park, told the Planning Commission last week that his customers primarily come up from Illinois and the cabins are a bigger draw than the campsites. They currently have 21 cabins. Last year, Isaacson said he wanted to have up to 100 cabins. The same site was approved for the conversion of 12 existing campsites into cabins last year, according to a memo from Racine County Development Services. Isaacson told the Planning Commission he does not plan to make any more campsites. Rather, when he…
