This place was horrible. From the minute we arrived we had problems. The man at the front station did not speak English fluently. We spend 40 minutes trying to check in and he kept trying to over charge. We had tried to make a reservation before getting to the campgrounds and the site didnt register it. I had tried calling to check if the reservation went through and no one answered the phone after trying for two days and leaving voicemails. No one returned a call either. Once arriving the estimate I was told online was completely off. For a site with water and electricity I was quoted $240 and when we got here I was told it would be $350. That is a major difference. I was also trying to get a site near my sister's site for my daughters who were using a tent.. I was told that pop-up sites and tent sites are in totally different parts of the campground. My daughters had to stay at least a five minute walk away by themselves when all the food and coolers were by our campsite. Not mention you're basically paying for a parking spot not a site. There is no room or privacy at all. For a campground aimed towards little kids this was not a kid friendly place. There was no room on the site for the kids to play! The only thing for them to do to get out their energy was to swim to which they have to be constantly supervised and it was chilly some days so there was nothing else to do. To top that off our site had a huge cliff behind it with no fencing whatsoever. This is extremely unsafe for younger children. They would have to be supervised AT ALL TIMES. It would be way to easy for a child to slip and fall. They would get very hurt as this was not a small hill but an actual cliff off of woods with a huge drop off. There was a small park by our site with swings and a plastic play park, they must not have any maintenance because the second my nephew sat on the swing it broke. The swing set was so rusty. The bathrooms were a whole other story. They were far and small. There were only 3 stalls for all the campers in our area and not to mention small children can not hold it for the walk there. When little ones have to go they have to go. It would have been nice for them to invest in more bathrooms spread out even if it's only a few stalls each. The main attraction was the pool areas, which looked amazing from the website. In real life the pool was small and did not accommodate the amount of campers there. The staff was not very friendly even towards the kids during the activities and seemed very unhappy to be there. The person dressed as Cindy bear was a man and he was talking to another staff member out of character right in front of the little kids.. Not very appealing to children who think she is an actual cartoon character in real life. My sister also had the same problems. Checking in was a disaster and they tried charging her extra to keep my car at the ranger station that was actually going to be on the other campsite I was getting for my daughters but the man at the front couldn't understand because he didnt speak English. She also had the "red carpet" package which was supposed to come with electricity, water, a grill, and a free drink. The grill was a small square you would see like the ones at the beach. Definitely not red carpet if you ask me. Also, she never got the drink. You will not be able to sleep because of the noise from the highway so don't plan on it. Also there is absolutely no lights anywhere at night and it's pitch black. Every other yogi or campground like this has has at least lights for the campers or very dim street lights. I have been to other Jellystone parks before and I have never had so many problems as at this one. I recommend the Amboy or Milbrook location much more! DON'T WASTE YOU'RE TIME OR MONEY! Too overpriced!
