“BEST VACATION EVER!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2011

We camped with 4 of our 5 adult daughters and 4 grandkids (ages 3,4,5,8). Yogi Bears camp resort in Marion NC is truly the best. We have been camping for 30+ years and this campground is the BEST ever!!! The staff are awesome and it is very clear that each and every one of them truly LOVE what they do. They LOVE kids and provide kids and families with memories that will last a lifetime. We can't wait to go back and plan to make it an annual tradition. We only wish we had found this campground years ago. We highly recommend this resort and promise you will not be disappointed. Just be prepared to have FUN!!!

Room Tip: cabin, camper or tent

This is the best vacation our family as had in a good while! We will be back again! We stayed in one of the cabins, no complaints at all. There is always something fun to do. We never had to leave the camp ground the whole week we were there except to go to the grocery store, which is not far away from the campground. Can't wait to go back in 2012 :)

This was our 2nd camping trip with our two (age 6 & 8) and they loved it! Camping was "woodsy" but not boring. The campsites could be a little more secluded for privacy like other parks but still, other campers were respectful and it was quiet after 9pm. The kids were up each morning to greet Yogi with dancing or cartoons and went running to the "back porch" for games and scavenger hunts each evening. The water slide was awesomely smooth and the pool was clean. We loved kayaking and paddle boating with them. Bath houses and grounds were well maintained. The young, cheerful staff genuinely enjoyed kids and made their stay the best possible. We hope to return someday.

Room Tip: Choose tent sites farthest from the entrance for a more "camping" experience because there...

I highly recommend Jellystone to anyone with kids. The water slide was enough to have them begging to come back. It's a very wholesome, family-oriented environment, and the customer service is outstanding. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to make another trip.

What a pleasure to visit such a beautiful place for families to enjoy the outdoors and fun activities in a family owned, safe environment! The staff were personable and helped insure our visit went well. We were personally escorted to a large site (ample for a 40' rv) beside the tranquil lake then spent the rest of our time watching the kids play and pose for pictures with Yogi and BooBoo, fish, kayak, canoe, hike, eat Smores by a campfire and met some of the nicest families around the campground. The best adventure for our grandkids was riding the Super Duper Triple Looper water slide! Nana was a little hesitant but our 4 year old figured out quickly this was FAST and FUN so she loved this! Nana and Poppy loved the huge swimming pool and the planned activities which we loved and kept our grands busy. What a great time was had by us all!! We'll be back for sure!

Room Tip: Cabins looked really nice outside but we were in a motorhome so didn't stay in the cabins.

We found Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in Marion by a Living Social deal. I didn't even know it existed in my state! The kids had been asking to go camping but since we had gotten sold our pop-up camper we hadn't been. So, when this deal popped up with the cabins as an option, I jumped on it. The campground was very easy to get to. The pictures are true to what you see and experience at the campground. The cabins were spot on...not just taken when they were new. Great size cabins with full kitchen and bath. The kids loved that there was even satellite tv. The campground had a great pool and baby pool. It even had a water slide that we all enjoyed. The location is so close to everything so you can easily hop on the Blue Ridge Parkway or see Linville Falls and Cave. I highly recommend this campground for lots of family fun.

The staff was extremely friendly and the park is well-maintained. It is a bit older and could use a bit of updating, but it is very nice. The kids had an amazing time swimming, kayaking, playing games and riding the water slide. They loved the dance Saturday night and loved playing the games on Saturday afternoon. They are already asking when we can go back.

Room Tip: Camp site A16 is very close to the bath house! It was great for our extremely large tent.
