This is the 2nd stay for us and we really enjoy it. The kids love all the planned activities and seeing Yogi Bear. The sites are shady. Some could use some more gravel but we were fortunate and it did not rain. The staff were very friendly and the pool and the bounce pillow were fun. We plan to return... More

We stayed here 3 nights on our way to Wichita. We have stayed her in the past, but only overnight. It is a nice park with lots of activities for kids. The sites are a little close and they don't all have cable. Wifi was okay, but not real strong. The park is very clean and well maintained. There was... More

Very nice park . all amenities worked well. Nice and clean and very pleasant staff. Our granddaughters enjoyed it and surrounding area. We would stay again if ever in the area. Bought two very good quality sweatshirts at a good sale price for them.

We had just purchased a Travel Trailer and this was our second camping experience. As far as Jellystone Park, this was a rather well experience. Plenty to do for the children. Everything from swimming to riding on a fire truck. What we didn't expect was the closeness of other campers. This is learning on our part. Otherwise, a great time!

We stayed only one night in Lawrence, Kansas. This KOA is convenient for travelers headed across Kansas. We got into our campsite easily. The showers were hot and clean. Still, the price for a night had risen considerably since we last stayed there in 2012, but we did not see any improvement.

We stayed for one evening. The park was nice, restrooms clean, pool refreshing. We were given a slot up near the store so there was a lot of activity of people walking about all evening, but we were there for only one night so it was ok. The only bad thing was that we purchased a bundle of wood from... More

We stayed one night at this Jellystone location last week and enjoyed our time there. The pool was nice, if not particularly shaded, and they seemed to have lots of other activities for kids. We didn't partake of much as time was short. Sites were easy to pull through and offered plenty of shade. Light sleepers may hear the trains... More

We went on a weekday, because we had heard they had activites all week long. There was only 3 activites planned, raising the flag, cartoons, and a craft (for a fee). I would stick to weekends if you want firetruck rides or something else. On the plus side, it was empty. Our cabin (which slept 8 comfortably) was right across... More

This campground has the friendliest staff of any campground we have been to! There are a lot of daily planned activities as well as a pool, jumping pillow, tetherball, playground, basketball, volleyball, arcade, peddle cars and shuffle board. We overbooked ourselves for outside activities so unfortunately we didn't get to participate in most of the activities... so we will just... More

We have been staying at Jellystone for many years. Shawn who is the manager for the last couple of years has made great changes and the staff is very friendly. We had four cabins and one rv site it gave us space when we needed it and when we all got together there was room for everyone, the cabins are... More
