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

We just got back from a three night stint in one of the new Cindy bear cabins. It was incredibly clean, comfortable and beautiful. The beds were great, the appliances were handy and I loved that rushing stream a few feet away from our porch. It looks bigger in person than it does in their pictures. The kids actually liked...

We have been to Jellystone several times and it never disappoints! We stayed on Easter weekend and he a blast! They have so many activities for the children that there is no need for us to leave the campground. They have an arcade, mini golf, pool , crafts, playground, ice cream parlor, and movies every night. We stayed Easter weekend... More
