We stay in Mears yearly in August to ride the Silver Lake Sand Dunes with our Rzrs. Last year we stayed at Silver Creek but this year we had some family members who wanted to tent. The park was nice ans had a lot of activities for the kids. The campsite was all dirt not a bit of grass so... More

We had a great time at Jellystone in Silver Lake. There is a lot to do at the park and also within walking distance. Our kids loved the character bears and the pool. He one complaint is that there was kind of a lot of gross trash around the campground - q-tips, used bandaids, cigarette butts. I started picking it... More

I loved this place as a kid and still love it now. In fact I cannot wait to come back. There is a lot of stuff to do here, more so than other campgrounds I've visited in the past. All of the workers are very polite and everything is well kept and very clean.

We spent three week days on Evergreen Dr, spot #118. The sites are closer together than at some state parks we've been to, but since it was a week day many of the sites around us were empty. Plus we don't have slide-outs, so it's not that big a deal to us. All the campers around us were very nice,... More

I called at the last minute and was given a nice premium site. This is a large, clean and comfortable campground. This establishment is in a good location and is close to everything. The employees I encountered were very friendly and outgoing. A very nice campground stay.

Not the worst campground we've stayed at but not the best by far. Pros: activities for the kids, wooded lots, several with full hook up. Campground hosts a large pool. Cons: showers smelled of mold/mildew (several different stalls on different days), showers also lack a place to put your shampoo bottle, soap dish, etc. The cushions over the chairs at... More

Great place to go. Check in was easy and quick. We stayed from a Saturday to a Friday. It was really busy on the weekends and quieter during the week. The pool was warm with lots of chairs to sit around in the sun. The campground was kept really clean with friendly workers. People that where travelling with us had... More

Nice campground with lots of ammenities. It was a chilly June but pool was heated and even when stuck in camper had good wifi. Close to attractions. Good kids programs. Definitely take a sand buggy trip into the sand dunes.

Just returned from an amazing trip at Jellystone. One of the things that makes this park special is the location. Walk to the entrance, and you can watch a sunset over the dunes, play on a mini golf course with waterfalls, bike to farmer's markets, water rentals and grab a bite to eat. The facilities were clean and the staff... More

“There is not cell phone signal available. We have Verizon and could not make any calls and barely got a text to go through. Bring plenty of clothes because there is no laundry room at this campground.”

“If you can afford to upgrade to a full hook-up, I would suggest it. During peak "dumping" times (e.g. Sunday's), the dump station has only one dump spot and the area is fairly small and some wait times seemed to be a little long.”
