We stayed four days in late June 2020. The campgrounds are very well kept. No litter. Lawns mowed. They even came by with a leaf blower to clean our patio after they mowed by it. The pool water and bottom were clean and clear. I read reviews from 2019 that were largely critical. Our experience this year was wonderful. Everyone they hired for this year was extremely friendly and helpful. We chose Jellystone for our 7 year old granddaughter to enjoy, and she had a blast all day every day.

Reservations were made in March for an August weekend, a couple weeks before arrival was informed that the golf cart I used the past 2 years was not permitted, I am disabled and can not walk long distances. Kept reservations and camped with my wife and 2 grandsons. Numerous golf carts "cruising" around park, After inquiring, was told these are permanent site holders. Youngest grandson had a seizure while returning from crafts, 2 campground employees "ON A GOLF CART" WOULD NOT ASSIST US AND TOLD US THEY ARE NOT PERMITTED !!

This place was a tough one. We had never been and had researched and saw many negative reviews, so our expectations maybe weren't as high. However, we decided to camp here over the Labor Day weekend in 2019. Overall, our stay was very pleasant and fun. We had good neighbors, which may have helped too. But our kids had a blast. Pros: - Lots, and I mean lots, of activities for kids. They run a constant activity schedule that includes fire truck rides, tye dying (extra $), Yogi bear visits and him and his friends play games, nice playground, kids loved gaga and the big slide. The other kids also all seemed very courteous to one another - Mini golf was in excellent shape and the kids had a blast. We played several times. - Yummy yummy ice cream - they have so many flavors its near impossible not to find one you like - The pool was lots of fun, although yes, dirty (felt more like a lake) - Our campsite was a decent size and we were on a little creek so it felt private - The staff - we had only positive experiences with the staff. Everyone was pleasant and accommodating. We had guests on 2 of the days we were there, and they helped to get them to our site, even allowing one to drive back and drop off their stuff prior to parking in the lot. Cons: - Yes, you have to pay for fire wood. And it doesn't take very well, so be prepared with lots of kindling - The pool - yes it's fun, but it does need improvement. We chalked it up to being the last weekend of the season, but the bottom is dirty with algae. The water isn't dirty per se, but it doesn't look the most appetizing. They really could stand to replace the pool liner. For adults, it wouldn't be my cup of tea, but the kids loved the obstacle course and big slide. - The visitor cost is sky high. But in fairness, they do charge $12.50 for people who are not campers to use the public pool. So, $15/day for access to your camp site, all the mini golf, activities and pool time you can stand isn't unreasonable. I would think $10/day for all of those activities is more reasonable. But you can also just have a guest for $5/day. I get why campsites charge fees - to keep the population to a reasonable amount. If it was free, there could be so many people there. - Terrible terrible wifi. We were pretty close to the entrance and couldn't use it at all. So don't plan to use this while visiting. I do think this site gets a bad rap because it is expensive. But I've been to other sites that are not much cheaper and do not include the water park, mini golf and lots of other activities. If you want basic camping, this isn't the place to go - your overnight fees basically include the cost of using all the activities - and if you aren't going to use them, it doesn't make a lot of sense. Our kids had an absolute blast and are already asking when we can return. They loved doing archery in the barn. The campers App is super helpful here as it sends you reminders for all the scheduled activities, and it also updates real time if anything changes. We did not have any issues with water pressure as other reviewers suggested. We didn't have any issues at all with the facilities. My only complaint was how far the showers are from the main campground. They are all the way up by the pool. But they are decent. They are shared with the pool, so keep that in mind as well. Also, there was only two toilets by the campground, but we never had an issue with waiting. This is definitely a site where you want to use the sewer that is provided and hook up for showers and toilets if possible. Our campsite was nice, gravel area for our TT, the site next to us even had a concrete pad for the picnic table. Each site has a fire ring and a picnic table. We were on the creek so it was pretty private feeling, but some of the other sites are less desirable. They may have someone next to and behind - but we also saw a large group use that to their advantage. To me, you just need to do your research and this is a great place to be.

Worst Jellystone park I have ever stayed. Rude management (Dave) even the workers made comments on how bad things have become. Water pressure terrible, pool was green, camp sites so small the camp fires right next to your neighbors slide out , and the "black pipes" to close to where we cook for my liking. Management has so called "written rules" written and published no where that campers are to follow. Just admit you make them up as you go Dave to flex your management muscle. And Dave one more tip, good management will go into the park everyday to engage with the campers. Try this in the future! It might not take three days to enforce your written rules. Jellystone should be ashamed to have this campground bare its name. Not the first time that we have stayed there in recent years, however it will be the last. If I could give zero stars as a rating I would.

We have been staying here for the last several years during the week long all American soap box derby event that our kids participate in year after year. There are plenty of other families that stay here from all over the country. Last year we had a wiffleball game between the north and south, with kids and adults which the families look forward to for the whole year. We even had none soap box families that were staying in the campground bring chairs out to watch our game. We had invited other families from soapbox to come for the night and bbq,drink and play ball. This year we asked if it’s alright to have our wiffleball game here again even if we have to pay for people to come into the campground and we were told they will let us know! 2 local cops showed up in separate cars to tell us that there will be no wiffleball allowed in campground. Are you kidding me? wiffleball. A family fun event that brings families from all over the country together to have some fun. We spend between $700(site)-$1400(cabin)each family to stay here for the week event. There are at least 20+ families that stay here each year that are ready to do business elsewhere. Meanwhile we can’t hardly use the pool because there are so many outside day people that are in the pool and outside the pool in the grass yelling and hollering. Besides the water problems that the campground is having, no water, no pressure, too much pressure. It has been a great place up until this year, but will not stay here again, I hope the owners read this and make it up to the soap box derby families that stay here year after year. NOT FAMILY FRIENDLY
