“Great for kids but pretty gross”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in a yurt at jelly stone. We have stayed in yurts before and they are so cute. This one was interesting. There are real mattresses in there. Like not camping mattresses that are covered in plastic. I'm sorry, but that's gross. Also the fire pit was filled w garbage. The bathrooms are pretty gross looking. And the sound of the highway keeps me up. Not white noise.... Just plain loud. Perks are the pool and water area are fun for the kids and they seem to have a lot of kid activities. I'm not sure we will stay here again. I would rather go to door county and stay in a yurt at wagon trail campground. Better yurts and super clean bathrooms.

This was our second trip to Yogi Bear's campground, we were pleased last year and decided to come again this year. Although the noise from the highway was incredibly loud and it was hard to hear each other around the campfire at night, overall the stay was pleasant. The kids loved the playground, "hey ride", and pool activities. The bathrooms and all areas were kept quite clean. If I went back again next year, I would try and get a cabin away from the highway. We would go back as the kid's really enjoyed it. The staff is very nice as well.

This location is very crowded. The streets are narrow and sites are close together. The are not very level either. We reserved a electric and water site and when we arrived we found out that our only had 20 amp power...we needed 30 amps. They moved us to another site that did offer 30 amp power but the pedestal was broken. After backing into our third site we were finally able to hook up. The site is so unlevel that our campers rear bumper is almost touching the ground (33 ft travel trailer). I would never stay here again.

Okay- so it's the Dells, it's busier and more expensive than other campgrounds, but it's still one of our favorites. (Watch for specials!!!) Our kids love it!

Pros- TONS to do, love the "Hey Rides," seeing the characters, crafts, hot tub outside, pool side DJ, STREET DANCE, friendly management and staff, access to Mirror Lake (It's a beautiful walk to the boat landing!), location is great- right behind the outlet mall if you're in the Dells to shop, etc.

Cons- Sites are kind of over-crowded (# limits would be nice), pool/ hot tub chemicals are strong (My youngest had minor chemical burn after our stay the beging of August- warranted a trip to the clinic, but when we mentioned the strong chem to staff, they were very responsive and closed the hot tub right away.) Little kid waterpark is COLD, but if you need a lounge chair there's usually a bunch open in that area!

As far as interstate noise- yep, right on the highway- check a map- so are several resort hotels, it's just where Lake Delton is! If that's going to be a big hangup, go somewhere else! To be honest, it just becomes white noise to me- and we don't pick sites right next to the road.

Overall, we love it and will be back- probably early season because it is so much busier later summer. (Really a lot of the problems people complain about crowds cause- messes, bathroom lines, need for lots of pool chemicals, noise- if people would pick up after themselves, be considerate and not try to fit their whole extended family on 1 campsite things would be better!)

Room Tip: ASK for a site away from the highway if the noise concerns you. There are more rustic sites.

Prices are too high for this poor place. We paid $75 per night per site and just feel like camping on the side of I94, cars noise all day and night, they must have a sound proof barrier or something at less. The pool is too small and only for little kids. Bathrooms: only 3 toilets and 3 showers, for that many people, seriously?

I was there with my family last weekend and foremost is too expensive for what you get,the "water park" is very small and no many features,the bed cabins very small too,I got bit by some kind of bugs or insects during sleeping I still have marks on my arms....well I can keep going on & on.

I will not go back to that place never.

Room Tip: Not here.I don't recomend this place .

We just came back from our Yogi bear experience at Dells and are already looking forward to our next vacation at this location. On the way back home we actually toured the Warrens Jellystone and noticed how Dells had more of a woodsy camping experience, and more activities specifically for younger kids with hay rides twice a day (we rode on every one). Warrens had bare spots of land without trees or grass and older activities more geared to teenagers.
Back at Dells, we were very excited when we walked to the lake for a scenic lakeside canoe experience and a first time fishing expedition for our four year old son. We made sure to go back again the next day as well!
We were also worried about the negative reviews but started our vacation with an open mind and were pleasantly surprised. The staff were wonderful with enthusiasm and professionalism. We really enjoyed a particular staff member named Dugas for his charismatic personality making the hayrides highly energetic.
We stayed in the Boo Boo chalet for four people, with three adults and one child...and next time will upgrade to a 6 person with all the suitcases and accessories we travel with. We were actually given a tour of some of the 6 sleeper challets and ranger smith cabins by a very helpful staff member named Sami, who was very pleasant and accomodating.
It is true that depending on where you stay the highway can be noisy, however our cabin was highly insulated and was not easily heard when inside (our cabin was one of two on the highway side).. We were surprised at how we forgot about it while we were running from activity to activity and meeting friendly neighbors. It is true that the pool is small for large populations however we stayed during the week and had plenty of room in the water areas.
We all agree that this was a wonderful family experience and are looking forward to our next family vacation at Dells Jellystone Park.

Room Tip: One tip is to book a higher person capacity then the actual number in your party.
