We have stayed at Yellow Jacket in sept for the past 2 years and love it! The grounds are very well maintained & bath house/laundry is spotless. We have had the same 2 sites on the river & just love the view. Each year we have rented one of their boats & visited Manatee Springs & Fanning Springs. Just a great place for a long weekend. We will be back AGAIN.

We have stayed at Yellow Jacket RV Resort many time over the last 8-9 years. We have stayed in both the RV sites and cabins. We have always found the owners and workers to be friendly and helpful. They are constantly working to keep the campground and cabins clean and to improve the campground so their campers and guests enjoy it there. We always take our dog with us and have never had a problem about him. The pool and spa have always been clean and heated when we stayed there. It is beautiful, right on the river, very quiet and peaceful. We love going there and would recommend to everyone.

NOT Kid friendly. They would like a retirement quiet to the park. When we pulled in we were excited. Pretty grounds and views of the river. The cabins looked nice but always felt damp. Beds were hard and the fans squeaked if you used them. So we had to turn them off. Most cabins are connected to one another and you can hear every movement your neighbor makes. Went here because of the heated pool but it was still very cold and the Jacuzzi was a green color. The river and docks were very well maintained and the grounds were as well. Friends stayed in their camper and they said it was a nice site for their RV with the sewer and electric hook ups. Do not recommend going there though if you have children under the age of 15. The staff and owners nit picked every sound and movement the kids made. They weren't allowed to have fun in the pool or playing on the grounds. We got disciplined if we had the doors open for the breeze, if they ran down the road playing, if they walked through an empty camp site, etc. They say you get a 3rd night free in the cabins if you rent for 2 nights. We decided not to use the 3rd night and asked for late check out. When we did not get out by 11 the owner came and yelled at everyone and called us liars. That a late check out was never agreed to. When she found out they had agreed to it, she did not apologize. She then started looking for everything that was not to her liking and let us know every second something was wrong as we were still there packing to go home. Do not take your dogs unless you will be with them 24/7 and they are perfectly quiet as well. You must also buy their fire wood so do not bring any or they will back you get it off the grounds ASAP. Don't move their picnic tables either or you will be fined.

This is a private camp ground and they will make you miserable if you do not follow EVERY rule and there are a lot. To bad to because it was a beautiful place.

boatrentals, Owner at Yellow Jacket RV Resort, responded to this review, November 6, 2011
I am sorry that the guests felt that way. I am the owner of this Park and our goal is to meet the needs of our guests to have a good time. I feel blamed for things I did not do. I was not even close to the cottage they stayed in, it is not my job. The houskeeping supervisor was the one who talked to these guests. If she stepped over the line, I apologize. She is not working here anymore but to her defense I must say that she was a very good worker and very liked person.
My suggestion is for Tripadvisor to delete this review because it is not true, and no. 2 it can be a case for a lawsuit calling me a nasty owner.
