We just spent the weekend at Jellystone Quarryville, PA and had a blast! Great facilities and camp sites and the people were very friendly and the place was surprisingly clean. I've never been to this campground before so I didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. We had a shaded campsite which was great since it was so hot. Be sure to ask that question when you make your reservation. Some are shaded with trees and some are not. The only downfall to being on the shaded site is that these weird nuts kept falling from the trees hitting us on the head. I loved that they have trash and recycling pick-ups every day and the electric and water hook-ups were very convenient. The campsites are all level but just a tip - some of the sites are grass and some are gravel. Just be sure to ask that question as well when making reservations. We had the gravel site which was fine but we were prepared and brought moving blankets to put under our tent. The bath houses were nice because each individual room had a sink, toilet and shower with a door that can be locked that way you have that room to yourself. The staff cleaned the bathrooms throughout the day so they stayed pretty clean but they did get a little dirty and humid during peak times (at dinnertime/bedtime). Otherwise, they were mostly clean. My only complaint is that people smoked in the bathrooms (and also by the pools). For a non-smoker like me that bugged me. I don't want to smell smoke while going to bathroom or showering. It would be nice if they made those areas non-smoking. The campground is very nice with lots to do and fun activities for the kids. The pedal car track was my sons favorite however it did get crowded at times and kids had to wait a long time to take turns. There was a staff person there on Friday keeping things in order but nobody was there on Saturday which made things a little chaotic. There were only several pedal cars available and lots of kids getting very impatient to ride one. Older kids were butting in front of the younger kids and there weren't many parents around to supervise. I had to get firm with a few kids that butted in front of my son a few times. My suggestion would be to either get more pedal cars or have a staff member there during peak times. Mini golf was great and the air pillow was great fun. We rented a golf cart there which was $60.00 for the day. A little steep in my opinion but my son really wanted to get one for the day so we caved in and got it. We did have a great time cruising around the campgrounds with it but not sure if it was really worth that much money. Waterpark was great fun and clean, the pool was very crowded so I avoided that all together. During the two days we were there they had to shut the pool down twice and the waterpark once because a child had a poopy accident. It was nice to know that they did clean the mess and I saw them chlorinating the water and let it cycle through for a few hours before reopening it. The good thing is that the pool and waterpark run on two separate systems so if the pool closed down the waterpark was still up and running and vice versa but it made things super crowded. There were adults consuming alcohol at the pool and waterpark area even though the sign says its not allowed. It didn't bother me that people were drinking but I was just surprised that they didn't enforce that rule. 99% of the people had their alcohol either in solo cups or coozies so it was hidden. They had a DJ at the pool Saturday night which was great. Kids and adults loved that. They have laser tag there now which looked fun but we didn't partake in that because we ran out of time. Staff was very helpful and friendly and the general store carried tons of things which was great because we didn't realize you needed an adapter to plug in the electric at our campsite. The store sold the adapters for $5.00, well worth the money to have electric! They even sell food items and coffee which was a nice surprise. All in all, we had a great time. Definitely will be coming back!
