We stayed at Yogi's Jellystone park the last weekend in July 2003. My parents, 3kids (6,10,12) my boyfriend and myself stayed in a Yogi's bungalow. Cute cabin but very small. We brought along a sleeping air matress for an extra bed. The bunk beds are very narrow. My boyfriend is a pretty large guy and had just enough room to move in his sleep. Kids didn't mind the beds. The mattress's are very thin so not the most comfortable. The a/c worked well once we got the cabin cooled off. The yogi bungalows are pretty much right off the highway. The a/c seemed to drown out much of the noise - we also brought a fan that seemed to help too. If you are a light sleeper this could be a problem. The kids enjoyed Yogi's pool party all day sun. They even played games with the dj. Our 10 year old won a freeze dance contest and received mini-golf for two so of course we all ended up playing but she was pretty proud of herself. They had lots of activities that you could participate in but we spent alot of time outside the campground doing other tourist things. The showers - leave something to be desired - although clean - the water shuts off like every 10 seconds and you have to turn it back on - I believe in conserving water but it was really annoying to me - I think they could do that say every 60seconds at least. Would we go back? Yes. All in all we had a good time there. Be forwarned - if you stay in Yogi's bungalow they are pretty small rooms - Pack accordingly. My 6yr old thought it was just great everytime he saw Yogi Bear walking around the park - that was his highlight. Also there is no lifeguard at the pool so if you have small children I recommend a life jacket and keep a close eye on them. My 6yr old gave us quite a scare when he ran around the pool and jumped in where he could not touch - my mother and I could not get there fast enough - thank God a nice man realized something was wrong and pulled him up when my son popped up from the bottom about the 4th time. Feel free to email if you have questions.
