We went this past weekend and stayed in one of the cabins. Kids were 8, 9 and 13. There are plenty of activities that kept everyone busy the entire weekend. Loved the boating, water slide and mini golf. I do think the cabins are a bit expensive, and having to buy the $50 family pass for a weekend seemed expensive... More

This was our last camping trip before school started. My husband and I really wanted for all of us to "unplug" and spend family time together. We had heard great things about this campground and hoped it lived up to our expectations. Believe me it did! We arrived on a crowded Saturday but were able to go directly to our... More

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

Thank you for posting. We are thankful the kids had a good time however it is our sincere effort to ensure the entire family has a great time. As you mentioned we are kid oriented, we recruit team members that are vibrant and looking to embody that experience. While our team is young, most are in college, pursuing degrees and... 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
