We visited this park for our summer vacation and it surpassed our expectations. We traveled 9 hours to see friends and we stayed in a small cozy cabin at this park. I have camped at another Jellystone recently and this one was by far this better park. When we arrived I walked into a clean store/registration area and was greeted... More

Had a great time at Lake Monroe Jellystone Yogi Bear Camp Resort. The staff was helpful and engaged in activities with the families and many amenities to keep children happy and occupied. Clean facilities and close to area attractions.

Over all it was a wonderful experience, besides the weather...rain! We have been coming to this campground for a few years now and love it. The facitlies are clean, and the staff is great and friendly. They just added the splash pad and the kids can't get enough of it. They also added a few new tent camping sites since... More

We are equally disappointed when Mother Nature doesn't cooperate with our guests travel plans! Even though it rained during your stay we are glad that you and the kids chose to participate in our fun activities. We like to keep the fun going even during those rainy days! We look forward to your next stay with us! More

Jellystone campground is by far the best!!!!! Thank you to Miss Rachel and her fabulous staff!! They all go above and beyond to make this the MOST AMAZING campground in the US.

First time at this Jellystone campground. Won't be going back. We were camping with friends who had already reserved their spot. I specifically reserved the closest spot to them over a month prior. Upon check-in, we were told the computer moved us to another spot and there was nothing they could do about it because they had already given our... More

.Campground seem to be clean and taken care of but, it's not very large. Campground really lacks amenities for tent campers. Only found 1 bath house in the entire campground. Not a lot of big shady trees anywhere. We seen a train of some sort but never seen it move. Kids enjoyed jumping pillow. Water zone gave me worries because... More

Kim, Our park is small now, but we have plans and room to grow. At this time we only have one bathhouse. As we add sites in the future it is also in the plans to add an additional bathhouse. We also were concerned about the amount of people falling at the water park and have taken preventative measures to... More

None of the Amenities listed on the website were there except the water park/swimming pool which was closed. They did have a jumping pillow for the smaller kids. They are "upgrading and expanding" and "having permit issues" They have removed the arcade, pizza parlor, indoor pool, miniature golf etc. There is no trash or water access at all on the... More

Nice stay. Pretty level sites, albeit a bit narrow. Not much shade, but I have an awning! Kids working front desk are helpful and cheery. Jumping pillow is a hit but only open for certain hours. Be sure you check. Mini golf is, well, a disaster. Hacked up carpets, very small, pea gravel all over it, and the rails have... More

In seeking assistance, I submitted a question to Jellystone Park at Lake Monroe website. Since website submissions are often easily dismissed, I was not sure what response/assistance I would receive. After waiting a week, received a phone call from the head of customer care in New Hampshire, Jayne Cohen, who told me that the owner of Jellystone at Lake Monroe,... More
