Great place to visit with kids / grandkids. Many things for them to do. Wish the roads were better and they need some education for handicap travelers but still a great place. Some people tend to ignore handicap travelers as if they really don't know anything about vacationing. Hope this place takes some advice that was left for them before... More

Great visit. Remarkable customer service. Sites are lovely. Facilities are older but the owners are making continuous improvements. Events and activities are nice but minimal. Many are available with a fee. Fees are high when you have multiple children. You need to focus on the natural amenities which are incredible. Camp store is small. Mainly souvenirs so do not plan...

Trying to get reservations for this park takes months, so I was expecting a lot when it's always booked solid. All I can say is the rave reviews here are by people who maybe went long ago when things were different or they go to let their children run around like crazy and tromp through your campsite. Yes there are... More

Best camping trip ever with the kids and dogs! 2 dogs, a nine year old kid and a one year old baby wouldn't make anyone want to go camping unless it is at jellystone! Kids had a blast (in fact my nine year old never once mentioned TV or video games!) Dogs loved to be out side and we did... More

We stayed a few days, no cable, smelled septic, carpet on minnie golf is coming loose, it rained and our campsite turned into a red clay mud hole , will never stay hear again! I would not recommend this place to anyone, pool and water slide is open to public so its always crowded, I would not recommend this place!!

Thank you for posting. I sincerely apologize for your poor experience. We have made note of the things you mentioned. We work really hard to create a great experience for all that visit. As you mentioned we do not offer cable in park, we do take any type of smell or odor seriously, unfortunately we didn't get to address this... More

We have been going to Jellystone for a few years now. We started in the tent sites and are now in a camper and each visit has always been a wonderful. We have already been twice (April and May) this year and hope to visit again before the summer is over.

We had a fabulous experience at this campground. Our family enjoyed the multiple fun activities for kids and the relaxation of the area. The staff was exceptionally kind and enthusiastic. Planning to go again very soon!

Best campground around. Been camping here since for 10 years. Can't find a better place to camp with your children. Great owners and staff. Never a dull moment with lots of family oriented activities.
