“Got Sick From Black Mold”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

We stayed here with our friends for the Memorial Day Weekend...It was suppose to be a relaxing weekend of FUN, but NO our Cabin was infested with black mold. It was in the Wall AC, your could see it growing on the wall and the SMELL was horrible. Their solution? Bleach, well that didn't help. Now lets talk about the water and that SMELL---It would make your stomach turn every time you turn on the water. Their solution? Nothing. Well I can tell you this, we had a solution! Its called, calling the various "government agencies" that oversee these type of establishments. My friends, the views on the river are so nice, so sad for this place to operate like this, and by the way- they have a STRICT NO-NO-NO REFUND POLICY!! (so glad my credit card company is more understanding to my dis-satisfaction!!) Don't waste your time or your money here. Go someplace else that 'values' their customers, as Yellow Jacket RV Resort DOESN"T!

We stayed for a long weekend. The scenery is absolutely beautiful and this place has the cleanest bathroom/shower area I have ever seen in a campground. The pool/hot tub area is great and well kept up. The staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, it is yellow fly season and they were really vicious. I disliked the fact that there is NO cell phone service at all (what would happen in case of an emergency?); the sites are very small (we had a very large RV next to our small travel trailer and it was only about 10 feet away from us; we could not use our fire pit because it was about 2 feet from the side of their RV; their sewage port was around 20 feet from our picnic table and you could smell the slight odor of sewage when there was even the slightest breeze). You are not allowed moving either the fire pit or the picnic tables, otherwise there is a $25.00 fine, so both were not useful to us. I also dislike the fact that their price only includes 2 people and you have to pay extra for additional (children).

Some of these reviews left me wondering. This place was great and we are coming back next year with more families. We had about 10 families with us. We got some dirty looks from only one camper who complained about us but the staff worked with us. They have a great club house that you can rent which we did to help keep the park quite. The only complaint was that the bath showers were not as hot as we would have liked, even cold water at times, but not bad enough to keep us away from this beautiful campground. The campgrounds were CLEAN. We even took a dip in the heated pool(or at least the kids did w/no complaints)

Room Tip: Some of the sites are pull in and back in make sure you know which to get.

My wife and I were wandering through the Steinhatchee area in early January. We stayed there for a couple of days but there were few campers (us and another couple). We saw Yellow Jacket on the I-net and gave it a try.
We had a week before we were to meet my brother-in-law in Perry. We stayed for a week and wished we could have stayed longer. The hot tub and pool were wonderful and we were able to fish from the boat dock. Our sight was a pull through and gave us plenty of room and privacy.
The best part of Yellow Jacket was the people we met. There were people from all over the east U.S. and some from Canada. We were welcomed at Yellow Jacket's planned activities and Sunday services. The staff were helpful and friendly.
We plan on going back this winter for a longer stay.

a while back we rented a poontoon boat from this camp ground. they tell you 5 gal of gas will get you to the gulf & back wrong it will only get you there then you have to fill the fuel tank with the other 5 gal can & that,s the one that costs an editional $25.00. the steering was so hard on the boat that it could hardly be turned. if you break down there is no cell phone service anywhere between the gulf & the yellow Jacket camp ground. & beware be sure you follow all of there rules are you could be sued or who knows what I love to be threatened buy a camp ground that i just paid a lot of money to.

Room Tip: what ever you do do not bring your own firewood

We stayed 3 nights, very nice. Nice view of the river from our site and close to bath house, which was clean and well kept. Staff was very friendly as well as the other campers. Great place and we will return. Just a two hour trip from our home.

Room Tip: Get a riverside site if you are RV'n. Its worth every penny! Oh and if you have one be sure to...

Great Family location, we booked a fabulous riverfront location #12, close to everything, very quiet, very clean, great views and friendly campers. We rented the YELLOW pontoon boat and drove 1 hr up the Suwannee River to Fanning Springs - WOW - pack a lunch, spent the day, boating, fishing and chilling - http://www.floridastateparks.org/fanningsprings/default.cfm
the springs are at ?72 degrees - fun high jump - bring your snorkle, goggles and fins to check out the fish - we loved YELLOW JACKET - for its CLEAN clean laundry, bathrooms and pool area - our campsite was perfect with a charcoal grill and wood fire pit, pet friendly and respectfl campers - come prepared to stay and not drive for a couple of days with all your supplies - to avoid a trip to town. Can't say enough about their friendly professional staff and team. - yes they have wifi - but enjoy the disconnect for a few days - it can all wait!! cell phone spotty - plan ahead and enjoy the peace and quiet - we did!

Room Tip: We RVd, so cannot help with that one.
