“Family place that you can't beat”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Stayed here in mid-August. Very uncrowded campground, so it was very pleasant from that standpoint. The activities are family based with the waterpark style slide, nice swimming pool, mini-golf, jumpy thing and fishing pond. A little pricey for a camp site, but in the end it was good. Also, rent a golf cart if you can afford it, this was a big plus!

Stayed August 2013, traveled with family

Im way late on writing my review - visited in July of last year 2012 - Better late than never! Loved the atmosphere of this campground - plenty of activities for both kids and adults. We stayed in the cute lil cabins - just had a hard time figuring out warm water in the shower. Either got hot or cold, warm didnt exist, but it was hot outside anyway so didnt mind a cooler shower. One recommendation is to supply ice cube trays in the freezer. KY is hot in the summer so ice cubes are much needed. We stayed here while visiting Mammoth Cave National Park, which I highly recommend going to as well. Would love to come back to this campground again and try the Wild Cave Tour at the national park next time!

Recently took My family of four to Jellystone for a weekend camping trip in our Travel Trailer. I paid a little extra for the good site, and found we had booked the best site they have. You want Site # 76. Full concrete including the fire pit are, and is a pull through site.
We visited during "Yogi olympics" week, and there were many "events" planned for the kids. My kids profusely enjoyed the games, crafts , the "hey hey hey rides", and all the activities of the weekend. We were especially thankful for Ms. Pat, who takes care of the crafts and kids activities, she was great and very helpful. Also Ms. Lisa, "ranger station supervisor", for helping us plan a great weekend. My little atheletes won 3 medals in yogi's olympics! The staff was great, very kid friendly environment. We will be back for holloween. Do yourself and kids a favor and visit jellystone. Remember, site 76! and rent the golf cart, worth every cent to accomplish all the activities the park has to offer.

Hey kevin a,
Thank you so much for posting a review of your experience here at Jellystone! So glad you had a wonderful time! Site 76 does rock! Haha! Did you have the chance to hear Ms. Pat's laugh. If not, next time make her laugh. She has the best laugh ever. Also, Lisa in the Ranger Station knows everything about this campground and is the best at helping you plan a stay here! I will let both know about your kind words. Hope you guys can come back and visit again.

We stayed in the Cumberland Cabin that has a bedroom and a sleeping loft. The cabin was very clean. I was quite surprise to find out the cabin had central a/c. A big plus in the humid KY. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, silverware, plates coffee maker (and filters)etc.

If you are renting a cabin bring sheets, blankets, towels, and shampoo. Be careful if you have toddlers still in the "getting into stuff phase". The sleeping loft has small windows with blinds with cords that touch the ground. We had to tuck the cord behind the blinds so our little guy wouldn't get tangled up in them. We caught our kid tying up his toys with the cord one evening. The ladder to get up was steep.

They are currently building a water park so at times there is construction noise.It starts up around 9 and stops at 5. My three year old loved it but you may not. I honestly don't think anyone goes to Yogi bear campground to "get away from it all" anyway.

The jumping pillow, playgrounds, and kiddie pool were big hits. We enjoyed our stay of three nights and hope to come back.

Every guest we interacted with was nice and friendly.(YMMV) Teenagers tried to include my 3 year old in the jumping pillow and the mini- golf. It was nice to see such sweet kids.

This campground is nice. The bathrooms are clean but they are few and far between. In the "wee" hours of the morning it can be a little daunting to hustle all the way to the bathroom.
The pool and the water slide were big hits.
The staff is friendly - probably the nicest housekeeping crew I've run across.
The property is under improvement, so it should just get better too.

So many fun things to do and very friendly staff. In need of some updates and minor repairs but the children had so much fun they didn't even notice. Definitely plan more than a one night stay. We camped in the rustic section and felt very safe. I recommend using a cabin if you have any physical restrictions. Close to national park and dinosaur world.

Stayed at the campsite for 5 days in a Class A. Great location to Mammoth Cave NP. Big campground but sites are pretty close together. Facilities were clean. The activities for kids were excellent. Our family would definitely stay here again.
