I just spend a week camping out in tents in this camp ground and everything was great. Clean bathrooms and showers which is very important and lots of fun things to do for the kids. There is a pool, FREE mini gulf, playground, arcade room and there is a small creek that runs around the entire camp site. Overall it... More

I have spent different times of year at your campground but this last week was a disappointment. Every time we went to the bathroom it was nasty. Floors so wet you slipped when you walk. Didn't feel like taking a shower as they were the same. My son said men's restroom was the same. We started using restrooms behind store... More

We have camped at other Gatlinburg and Cosby campgrounds, but this one remains our go to place in that area. It has the right amount of amenities and activities to keep us occupied and yet enjoy ourselves and relax . We always have a good time camping there. The Campground owners and staff are friendly and efficient. The campground offers... More

I am so thankful that we stayed here, even during the nonstop rainy week that we stayed (mid-October 2014). We were tent campers and after a windy evening that pulled up our tarps and some other rain frustrations, the staff worked with us to get into a 'yurt' and we enjoyed the rest of our vacation instead of packing up...

This was an awesome location with lots of kids and activities to keep our child occupied. The hosts were fantastic and helped us mend a blocked toilet. Good outdoors experience not far from our rafting adventure

Our trip got off to a rough start when our transmission went out 6 miles from the campground. Adam, one of the owners, came and brought my wife and kids,to the campground and then made a 2nd trip to bring my camper! This was a huge blessing and just the beginning of the top notch customer service provide. The campground... More

My 3 children and I were here for 5 nights. The campground offers many activities and amenities to keep everyone happy- including teenagers! There's a saltwater pool, mini golf, horseshoes, and a game room. There is a small store and an ice cream parlor. There's planned activities like bingo, karaoke, and a movie every night. We stayed in a yurt... More

A friend recommended the Jellystone campground as a fun, affordable weekend family get-away. We had a wonderful time! The campground offers different lodging options, but we opted to rent a large cabin. When we arrived, the cabin was absolutely spotless. In fact, the whole campground is extremely clean and well-maintained. It's by far the cleanest campground we've ever stayed in,... More

We stayed during the Memorial Day weekend and had a wonderful time! First off, Dave the owner is very nice and personally escorted us to our site and helped me back in my camper which was huge as this was our first time out with it and are still learning the ropes. The campground is beautiful and was exceptionally clean!... More

This was our first time here and we loved it we rented the 5th wheel and it was perfect for us. I like that they take you to your lot on arrival and the entire staff is very nice and helpful. Our daughter liked the playground and enjoyed the hayride and karaoke. Seeing Yogi was a bonus reminded me of... More
