Spent Fathers day weekend at Jellystone in Fort Atkinson. We had to move from our original site as rains made deep rivets that we weren’t comfortable backing our trailer into. The staff at the front desk quickly found us a few options and we found a site –a site that we would request again in the future. The site provided a nice mix of sunshine and shade and was big enough for the kids to play ball in. The best part of our first night there was the “Night games”. Our kids loved playing Red Light/ Green Light and Sardines with a slew of other kids. Watching the lanterns fly away was also a big highlight of our first night. The staff member who headed this up, was very engaged with the kids and kept her eyes on the little ones.
We spent the majority of our second day at the pool. The water temperature was great - -refreshing, but not at all uncomfortable so cold you didn’t want to go in. The pool area had ample chairs for everyone, clean restrooms nearby and a concession stand.
Once again, our kids enjoyed the activity - -candy bar bingo. It was a fun activity the whole family could take part in at minimal cost.
We played mini golf –course was a bit dated and a bit challenging for little ones, but still fun.
Saturday morning we visited the Fort Atkinson Farmer’s market - -just a short drive from the campground. Something we will do again on our next visit back to Jellystone.
Another highlight was the “Hey Ride” - -we enjoyed seeing the park. Could have done without the singing - -but all the kids seem to enjoy it as well as saying “HEY” to all those we passed on the ride.
Overall, the campground provided us with everything we needed for a memorable family fun weekend. All the staff we interacted with were pleasant.
