We stayed 2 nights at this park, and the family had a generally good experience. The park provided some fun activities for the kids--mardi gras parade, pancake breakfasts, miniature golf, etc. The campground was in a beautiful setting, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our campsite was very difficult to get into, being high on a hill with... More

This was our first family tent camping trip. We loved it! Lots of activities, friendly staff, beautiful views. It is built on a mountain, so everything is "up". We are looking forward to our next trip.

Was impressed with the campground from first getting there to the time we left. All the staff were very helpful and courteous. More than enough activities to keep the kids busy all weekend if need be, but being nestled in the mountains made it great to go exploring as well. Traveling with three kids ranging from 3 to 12, we... More

This place is nice and very kid friendly. Our two boys loved it and met alot of friends. If your looking for a quite location in the mountains this is NOT it. Just the name of the park alone explains that. I recomend you camp further away from the activities pavillion and only walk to the pavilion when you want... More

We stayed here after staying in Rocky Mountain National Park at Moraine Campground. Our kids are three and five. We thought this would be a fun place to camp, but it was not. We were tent camping. The spot they assigned us was not level, the road to the site was a mess to get our truck up, and it... More

My husband and I have only been camping a handful of times before, and had not yet camped at all with our 6 year old daughter. She had been expressing an interest in camping, and we decided to check out Jellystone's Halloween Weekend camping at the last weekend of September 2014. It was really a lot of fun! We dusted...

Thank you for taking some time to review our park. Halloween Weekend is a one of a kind experience when camping, and our campers make it great! As the kids get older, the haunted hike through the forest at night is a "do not miss." We have many other fun themed weekends planned throughout the summer months. We hope to... More

We've stayed here a half-dozen times over the last couple years, and it has become my daughter's favorite summer time activity. The staff is incredibly friendly, and their energy is infectious throughout the weekend. Jellystone Park of Estes is a family and kid oriented campground. This is not roughing it in the woods, or even car camping in a national... More

After reading reviews of different campgrounds in the area and staying at a more basic one we decided to stay here. The staff was friendly, escorting us to the site. We stayed at site 68, it was big enough for our 26 foot travel trailer but with the park being in the mountains, a little difficult to get into. Thankfully... More

Thank you for taking some time to review our park. Labor Day Weekend is very full and I wish we had the opportunity to re-assign sites to address the issues you encountered, however given the busy holiday weekend we were unable to do so. More

Overall we enjoyed our stay at Jellystone as it was a great location near RMNP, but feel the place could be much better with some minor upgrades. We paid extra for a premium site and are still wondering what was premium about it. They provided a ground mat which was good but it was extremely dirty and worn (maybe time... More
