Just spent 2 nights at Jellystone in TO. We have a trailor and camp frequently in Ontario. We chose this campground because of it's proximity to Canada's Wonderland (using Google). I felt it was quite overpriced for what was offered.
The BAD: The campground is very small. It took us 4 minutes to bike around the campground. Our site was fairly "even", but many sites were on a slope/hill. Upon checkin, the young office staff (using the camp map) gave me inaccurate info re. bathrooms. The washrooms she recommended were closed during our entire stay (not a big deal but the office staff should not recommend and circle areas of this tiny park that are closed). When taking a morning shower, the water pressure went very weak and the water turned cold whenever a guest flushed a toliet (so when you hear someone flush, push the showerhead away from your body). The mini golf is super small and unfortunately costs $5 to play. Honestly, that should be included. REALLY......it is ridiculous to charge $5 a person to play that course. Also, most families are composed of 4 people, which makes their surcharge for having a 4th person on site upsetting. Last but not least, the cost factor of this campground is simply too great. It is too steep for what they offer/provide.
The GOOD: The pool is advertised as being heated, and boy is it ever. It was heavenly. The pool is small (simular to the size of a backyard pool) but it is very clean and heated. Their is plenty of chairs and umbrellas to shelter from the sun. The location of the pool is nice for shade in the afternoon. The children's playground is lovely and has tons of soft sand on the ground for safety. The washroom (by the pool area) is clean, and the camp store/office area is clean as well. They had a slushy machine inside the store and offered small cups (perfect size for healthy kids) for $1. The campground was fairly quiet and family orientated.
