We had our best camping trip yet. Not once did either child say they were bored. Even though the weather was cold and rainy they kept busy in the rec center and hanging out with the "bears". Once the sun came out the jumping pillow was a favorite spot. The teenage staff did a great job at keeping the kids... More

We stayed over the weekend and had a wonderful time. Cabin number 7 was brand new. Very clean. Staff is very helpful and nice. So many activities for kids. Waterpark is fantastic for small children. Jumping pillow was a huge hit.

Jellystone is a great place if you are looking for several activities for your family to do during camping. Unlike state parks, there is always something going on for kids, sing alongs, donut decorating, swimmibg, hay rides, etc. The camp sites are all open, not much privacy at all, a few sites have trees, which provide shade. All sites had... More

On a day where the temperature was 95, this was the place to be! Great Waterpark with plenty for the family to have fun with. Big area with water slides and the usual fair, a small pool for the little kids and a pool that's 4' deep or so. The Place is always very clean and staff is friendly, the... More

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

Katie, We are very sorry that your stay with us was less than perfect.
