“Love Camping at Yogi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We have been to Yogi 3 times since we got our camper last July and have another planned for the end of the month. The staff was very accomodating every time we have been there. The first visit we were having problems with our electric...they came within minutes and helped us resolve the problem. Our daughter has enjoyed the pool, putt-putt, and the pillow. We even had our niece come for a stay and she loved everything. It was her first fishing experience. The pond is a nice added bonus but a lot of algae to get your line caught in for little kids is not the best. The walk to the pond is a bit rough with the uneven ground downhill. We enjoyed the pool most of the time since that is where we spent most of our Saturdays there. We would recommend this place to anyone who loves to camp with children and early teens.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review, Wendi! We're so pleased to have you continue to come back and camp with us. It's great to hear that our staffing was helpful and accommodated you with your electrical issues. Our pool is a favorite location for most in the Summer months, so it's great that you enjoyed it. We're working on a system to help with the algae at our pond, so hopefully when you return again it will be better for you guys. Thanks again for taking the time to review us, as we greatly appreciate it. Come see us again soon!

This was our first time here and we only have good things to report on our stay.
Where to begin... Clean! The grounds were well maintained, they pick up your trash and recycling once or twice a day, deliver firewood to you (The Rangers are awesome!) the comfort stations (Bathhouses) were very clean and climate controlled.
Amenities are awesome with the jumping pillow, mini golf, arcade and a great waterpark! This along with all the activities through the Recreation staff offering, arts and crafts and Ga-Ga ball it filled out our day....We were beat!
With 4 children ranging from 1-7 this Campground has it all!
We were tent campers this time but hope to upgrade to one of the cabins for our next stay and with one of those hot tubs!
We will be back Yogi! Hopefully for one of your Halloween weekends!

Wow! What a great review! Thank you, Morgans! We like to ensure that our campground is clean for you all and we're trying to help the environment in the mean time. So glad that all of the children were well kept occupied with the amenities--gaga is one of our newest additions and definitely a huge hit! We'd love for you to come back and check out one of our cabins. You won't want to miss our Halloween Weekend! Thanks again and we hope to see you again here soon.

We've gone once a year for the past few years and have decided this was our last year. For the price you pay, you don't get a lot in terms of activities. We stayed in cozy cabins, and by the time we factored in food and supplies, it was quite a hefty bill for a long weekend. There were 3 go-carts for the track, and there's no staff watching and regulating this activity, so it can be hard for little guys to get a chance. Pool is crowded and the water looked dirty. Kids did enjoy the water park. Slip and Slide activity consisted of what appeared to be a black garbage bag and a hose. The whole place is jam-packed with campers, and there's not much in the way of wilderness. Worst of all is the horrible smell that wafted through our camp area: seemed to be a sewer back-up of sorts.

We've been to Jellystone 5-6 times now and will continue to come back. The staff bent over backwards to accommodate our stay. Within the first 3 hours the electric was acting up and the breaker was tripping. We contacted the front desk and "Frank" the Maintenance supervisor arrived and fixed the problem in 10 minutes. He returned a couple of times within the first two days to check and make sure we did not have any additional problems with it. We appreciated the follow up and will recommend this park to many of our camping friends and family. Great job Frank and great job Yogi!

We camped here a few weeks ago and we will not be back. The trip started off bad as soon as we checked in. It took FOREVER to get checked in and the girl working behind reservations said she could not check us in because the manager had to? What's the point of her working back there? There are plenty of activities but they are WAY over priced and the Rec staff was too busy texting the whole time to even care what was going on at the activitie. And the activities only lastest a max of 10 min Definantly not worth going to. And not worth dragging my 3 children out of the over crowded pool. The facilities were very clean, although they were VERY small. We will not be backed because it is too over prised and not worth the money.

While we try to make check-in as smooth and quickly as possible, sometimes there is a delay--especially on busy days like Thursday, Friday, and Sunday. Texting is a teens favorite thing to do and we will be implementing a cell phone drop box to reduce that issue in the future, thank you for bringing it to our attention. So glad you found the facilities to be clean and useful for you. Of course when the park was first built, we didn't know the potential popularity and growth that would come from it, so when it's hot and there are a lot of people in the pool it can become a little crowded. Thank you again for your feedback, it is appreciated and will help us improve in the future.

We've been to two other Yogi Bear Campgrounds. Although this campground is higher priced than other Yogi sites and certainly more than State parks, we thought we'd save money on gas and the time saved traveling would make it close to even. WRONG! We rented a cozy cabin from Aug 11 to the 15th. This place wil nickle and dime everything. Many of the activites had a fee. The prices in the Ranger Station was outrageous. There weren't many activities. Saw Yogi 2X. Never saw Boo Boo or Cindy. None of the bears were at any of the activities. The only saving part was the waterpark, which was decent. Also, where are the woods here? There are a few trees around some of the cabins and camp sites, but I wouldn't call it wooded. Wouldn't stay here again. I'd rather travel further to another Yogi park or go to a State park.

We stayed at Jellystone Quarryville in Aug 2013. For what you get...it's way overpriced. Yes, the bathrooms are clean, and the service is pretty good....but $150 for two nights at a basic W/E site. Then they nickle and dime for small things (pancake breakfast - tiny, overpriced pancakes, crafts etc.). Honestly, if you stayed in one of the lodges, you'd be paying as much as staying at Great Wolf Lodge (and trust me GWL is way better). The waterpark water is feezing...so unless it's 90+ degrees out, the climbing is not usable. We had rude teens cutting through our site regularly. We've been to 3 different Jellystones...and we're very impressed with this one (for the price we paid).

Pros:
-Clean bathrooms and sites
-Many scheduled activities for kids

Cons:
-Way too expensive for what you get
-Loud rental gold carts are a constant noise factor (gas powered)
-teens crowd young kids off the jumping pillow (they need separate times for young kids)
-Prices of milk and food in camp store (FYI - this place is in the middle of nowhere, so don't plan on going to a grocery store once there)

Stay at a Great Wold Lodge, Amusement park or Kalahari if you want a better experience. My review would be different if the place was more reasonably priced.

We are out in the country, but that's part of the appeal. We provide each guest with a campground map and map of the area so they can find their way easily to the nearby restaurants, stores and supermarkets. Most listed on the map are within 15 minutes of our park. I am so sorry if our staff didn't provide you with this when you checked in.
We recognize the need to separate the teens, adults and smaller children on the jumping pillow. Throughout the month of September and October, we will be trying new timetables for the jumping pillow to see what works best for next season.
We see that you came a long way to be with us and want to let you know we appreciate your visit and your review.
