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

OK, let me start off by saying this isn't my idea of camping and was my first stay at a commercial campground. Stopped here for the kids and I'm so glad I did. Endless stream of friends for my kids to make and every hour the owners have organized activities for the kids. For example, yesterday the kids went on... More

We have a travel trailer and have stayed at this campground 2x now. This is our favorite campground. We are from the Chicago area and if we were closer we would consider a seasonal site. This campground has great pools, great staff, tons of kids activities and more to come with a water play area expansion. It is close to... More

The biggest cabin is very clean but too small for a group of 6 to be comfortable. The grounds are nice and easy to get around. The kids had a great time looking for geodes at the waterfall, making s'mores and exploring the grounds. Since we were here during the week the pools, jumping pillow and planned activities stopped at... More

This was our first visit to Jellystone Park in Bloomington. We were in town for a family reunion, and the hotels were all very expensive. We found a cabin here for a great price. There was lots for the kids to do, and the cabin was nice. We all enjoyed jumping on the huge jumping pillow in the play area.... More

My family and I decided it would be a great idea to leave town to go camping also, taking our new boat for a good run over Memorial Day weekend 2013. Because this was our first year missing the Indy 500 since I can remember as a child, it was better because of the atmosphere and campground! Spending quality time... More

This was our first campground, so I have nothing I can compare to it. The site was nice, we enjoyed a beautiful sunset every night. The staff was helpful and engaged the kids. For the price, it was great.

Recently stayed at this campground for the first time, and we will definitely be back. The campground was very clean and the staff are super friendly and helpful. We camped in tents, and the tent sites were clean and spacious. They don't get a lot of people who use tents, so they only have 5 actual tent sites. I would... More
