Me, my wife and 2 small kids stayed here for 5 days last week and had a mostly great time. Kids got to see Yogi, Cindy, BooBoo and do all kinds of activities which was great. Everything was pretty much perfect... until the last night. I am a night owl and as a grown adult, I feel it is my right to go to bed at the time I choose to, as long as I'm not bothering anyone in the process. I'm not sure what time I went to bed the other nights but the last night, I AM sure. Because at 1:10am, as my family slept, and as I'm very quietly enjoying my alone time at my campfire, Yogi's night patrol showed up, shined a flash light in my eyes, and stated very authoritatively that it was after 1am and it was time to turn in! Of course I complied, without argument, as I've read past reviews that if you don't, they will call the cops and have you thrown out. I am always very respectful of others and I certainly cooperate with "quiet time" at whatever time a campground may choose. But for someone to tell me, someone who's almost old enough to sign up for AARP, that it's time for bed, is outrageous! This made me quite irate. And for this reason, I will NOT be staying at this campground ever again! Perhaps I may stay away from Jellystone Campgrounds all together! I am NOT a happy camper!
