It seems if you go to this camp with friends and kids, cook outside, and do their activities then it is very good. If you want a calmer experience then it is not so great. There is an incredible array of things to do which made it seem more like an amusement park than a camp. Terrific for some but too much for us. The good for us here: nice setting, huge area to walk, most sites in trees so it feels like wilderness camp, utilities work great. The less good for us here: our site was VERY tilted and was hard to level, entrance to site narrow and tight as was exiting the site, no cable, internet is very poor and ATT isn't much better, $60 a night is expensive. As a separate point, I want to emphasize that camps who want to you sign multiple page agreements including initialing each paragraph are not dealing with you fairly and in a balanced way. ALL of the risk is on you and they want to pretend they are not involved. This also makes the check-in process very long. This factor alone is enough for me to lower my overall rating from 3 to 2. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts Yogi on the Lake in a Motorhome.…
We’ve been going to Yogi on the lake since 2018. This year was the worst trip. Most golf carts barely work and have no headlights. This is the third year in a row that we’ve had to swap out carts that do not work for others.. that hardly work. Paying $150+ for the weekend rental you’d think they would get them fixed. The park is very dark at night and riding in the carts becomes dangerous. Cabins have moldy ceilings and cob webs. Advertised cable/Wi-Fi but did not work at all. Haunted trail this year was the best so far.
We took out three grandkids, 7,9, and 12 July 31 for three days and found out on after arriving that a lot of activities were not occurring. It would have been nice to have been notified at the time we made our reservation or before we drove a few hours. The grandkids did enjoy the pool and slides. When I complained, they said check your app, my app as I showed them had the activities listed. They did update the day after I complained and took activities out. I will also state that the employees were pleasant especially one at the pool.
We spent a few nights in a Ranger Smith cabin, and the whole family enjoyed the experience. We had two adults, two seniors, and three kids (aged 9, 5, and 2), and we all found plenty to do. Most activities are included in your stay, so it's an excellent value for what you're paying. You have a water park/pool, putt-putt golf (though the greens are all uneven, so don't expect much there), disc golf, arts and crafts (there is a small fee for ceramics if you want to paint or buy t-shirts to do tie-dyed shirts) where kids can color for free and get out of the heat for a while, kayaking or fishing on the lake, volleyball, tennis, horseshoes, playground, cornhole, rides through the park, and more. My kids loved meeting the bears (dressed up staff members in Yogi cartoon costumes) and watching the geese around the lake. It's peaceful out there, and people are respectful and so nice. The cabin was close enough to easily walk to everything, but if you don't like walking, you can rent a golf cart. Our cabin was clean, the AC was cold, and we had just about everything we needed already there. We were able to cook meals in the cabins. They even had pots and pans, plates, utensils, cups, oven mitts, spatulas, etc.! There's a Dollar General Market store only a few miles away if you do need anything, and the Ward's beside it is one of our fav fast food places, so if you don't want to cook or eat at the little cafe in the park, that's an option. Our cabin was furnished with a full-size bed in a room downstairs, two full-sized beds in the loft (though be warned that the loft is only accessed by ladder stairs, though it may be different in other cabins), and a pull-out couch, if needed, in the living room/kitchenette. Comfy pillows and beds. The bathroom and shower are small, but we never ran out of hot water. Each cabin has a simple grill like you'd find at a state park and a picnic table, too. We also had a screened-in front porch and spent a lot of time at the little table there relaxing and watching geese and kayaks on the lake. There are also a few TVs in the cabin and a list of available channels. We loved our stay at Yogi on the Lake, and we will definitely be going back next summer.…
This place is the greatest! They have something for everyone to do! From fishing to swimming to hay rides, we did it all and enjoyed everything, even singing karaoke! Yogi on the Lake is a great place for a family getaway or a couples retreat!
The staff is so nice & helpful. Everything was great! Family friendly. Our favorite part of the trip was the glow ride at night. We also enjoyed all of the activities and the pool. We will be back again very soon.
Member or was a Member Yogi has always been Great RV spot close to home only 5 miles and easy. Although April 1st-3rd my Family and a friend booked 3 spots. All went well until we had some adult friends visit that live close by to share the outdoor and play some Dominoes and Corn Hole at 6PM and would be going home that same evening only to get stopped at the gate and charged $25.00 per person to just visit me. Yogi needs to rethink this i will not set foot back at this RV Park again after being a Yogi Member and staying and spending my $ there. Beware you may have to pay more for someone to visit than you will pay for the RV spot.
We stayed in the Ranger cabin for Canun weekend. Had a great stay as usual. Activity schedule was full, which the kids really enjoyed. Ate at the cafe and it was delicious. No matter which employee we encountered throughout our stay, they were always so nice. Kudos to the management for having trained the staff so well. It makes for a great stay for campers, which is greatly appreciated. We had the ranger cabin. Enjoyed it. We have stayed in others and do wish they had screened in porches also.
This is our second time here. We chose the Cindy Cabin which we loved. I loved that is was one floor and an open floor plan. Full kitchen, large bathroom, queen, two bunks, L shaped couch, and chairs/tables outside. Perfect view of the lake and can pull directly in front of the cabin. Linens were provided and resealed. All of the staff are extremely nice, everyone! And the cafe was delicious, just wish the hours were longer on the off season. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
I can't say enough about the staff and the park. They were excellent all over the park. Everyone was polite and always helpful. People complain about the wi-fi but seriously " It's a park.." You are supposed to be relaxing and taking a break from the everyday life. The cabins were nice and supplied with everything needed. We have stayed at many parks and by far this has been the best experience. We felt like family and not a cabin number. The park has lots of things for the family to do. My favorite was sitting on the deck of the cabin and enjoying the peace and quiet of the beautiful nights. This staff goes above and beyond to make your stay a great one.
