“Great Place to relax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

Visited my family camping there. What a wonderful place, so many things to do for every age. Take a hike, jump on the bouncy pillows, enjoy the sunset, toast marshmallows over the campfire. We are planning a family trip for next year, with the cabins and RV will fit all, can't wait

This was our first trip to Jellystone in Luray Va. We had heard great things about their Halloween weekends so away we went.
Arrived late Friday but our reservation was on the door. A guide led us to our spot and graciously waited while we backed into our very dark space. Set up was easy and off to bed.
Woke to a gorgeous mountain view and the sight of a very full campground.
The bathhouse: this piece of this park needs a desperate overhaul. Saturday morning it could be described as a disaster and nasty. Out of toilet paper in many stalls. Showers are small with a shower seat to provide a dry spot. They are difficult at best. No place to set your toiletries on counter. A shelf above sink would be unbelievably handy. Everything was wet. Water standing in the floor. Water standing on the counter. No paper towels. Only hand driers so there was no self mopping. Sunday was even crazier but slightly cleaner. Sunday morning was more due to families not understanding bathhouse etiquette and treating it as their personal space with disregard to everyone else. I'll be better prepared next time for the cramped space. Husband states men's bathhouse similar experience.
Activities: superb playground. Lovely field. Fun wagon ride and the bounce pillow kept the Kiddo well entertained.
Trick or treat was a blast. Please patrons, if you are coming for a trick or treat weekend be prepared for a gazillion trick or treaters. Really neat site decorations and super fun!
Everyone was quiet by 10p. Super silent night and another gorgeous morning.
Walmart and Foud Lion are close by for quick runs. Camp store fairly well stocked. Friendly staff.
We will be back next year!

We stayed here for 3 days and that was enough for us. We chose this for our daughters birthday because she saw the waterslide and mini golf. We had originally planned to tent camp but realized the cabins were not much more than a deluxe tent site and it was a little hot and humid, so we ended up renting a cabin. The lady at check in was really nice and upgraded us to the next level for no extra charge due to our party size.

The area was pretty well maintained but I am pretty upset with the cost of the wristbands! If the mini golf course was a little better and the lazer tag was better I wouldn't have a problem with paying a little extra but $17 each for a family of five was not a welcome expense. The mini golf course was fun but not kept up as well as it could be. The Lazer tag is only open 2 hours a day and we had two boys who really wanted to play so you have to make sure you are there within that time frame or NO LAZER TAG! The pool was nice but FREEZING!!! One mom there described it as melted ice cubes and I couldn't agree more! The kids loved the water slide there and mainly did that the whole time. The jumping pillow is awesome but it is so hot and they close it at sunset so by the time you can jump on it without having a heat stroke, it is closed!

The cabin was nice. Very basic, but that is all we needed. It has a fire ring out front, BBQ grill and uncovered picnic table. The one really good thing about the tent sites vs. the cabins was the shaded picnic tables. It was really hot and the eating areas offered no shade at all at the cabin. This place had more flies than I have ever experienced. We don't mind bugs in the outdoors but the flies were crazy there.


All in all, we had a good time but probably wouldn't go again due to the upkeep and outrageous prices on activities. We would love to check the one at Natural Bridge. We heard that one is nicer.

We just returned from a wonderful trip to Jellystone, Luray. My husband and I, along with our 3 children rented the Skyline cabin for 3 nights. The staff is very polite and friendly. The golf cart was a fun treat, and in our experience, well needed to get around with our 3 little ones and gear. We enjoyed the mini golf, mining, slide, the jumping pillow, fishing and the on-site store had everything we needed without price gouging for the items you forgot. The pools were quite cold, but the children didn't seem to mind, and that's all that matters. We will be back!!

Room Tip: The Skyline cabins were very nice, but our cabin 81 had a slope for the camp fire, which made seatin...

The pros:
Staff was very polite, facilities were clean, our son was not bored, our RV site was good, lots to do in the area.
The cons:
Flys and gnats were quite the nuisance during the day; mini golf area needs work (bushes in some places are overgrown, water features were not working, debris on playing areas); as others have said, the fee is high for the "extras"; and the worst is the golf carts. Something happens at night because the place erupts with those blasted things and the NASCAR wanna-bees that operate them. At night, there is nobody to complain to.
So, why do we return? ONLY because of our son who loves the place and does not see the negatives.

My kids loved it here.
It's our second visit in 3 years.

They've added two giant inflated bouncing 'pillows.'

The bottom line for my family is this:
It is too expensive, but the freedom for my (9 & 10 yrs old) children is priceless.
Jumping on their bikes (with walkie talkies) and visiting the arcade or pay ground gave a healthy taste of individual independence.

While is the area my family also kayaked in the local river (nice, but not better) than home.
We also hiked two trails (Stoney Man & Mary's Rock.). They were great, with unbelievable views !!!
Plus completing a hike like this gives the kids a sense of accomplishment.

quite pricey, but you would figure that the extra cash would go to park upkeep. apparently not. restrooms were fair, not great. ivy vines growing into the men's room thru the air vents. very dusty roads, uneven camp sites all crammed together, and a horrible sewer odor from their small treatment plant. smelled so bad on a few of the days we were there we almost did not even use the putt putt course those days ( and i work for a sewage treatment plant!). had to keep water in toilet in camper to keep out the sewer odor from the sewer system or it stunk out the camper. our site was very small, no trees, and was right at the convergence of 6 roads! pets are welcome, and that is a plus, until you realize not everybody cleans up after their dogs ( very few did). we had our dog there, and always clean up after her. but walking her thru the park you could see dozens upon dozens of piles that were not cleaned up. apparently if the dog owners do not do it, neither does the park staff. we watched as one young girl walked her dog to another campers spot, allowed it to defecate, looked around, and thinking nobody saw, walked away! flies were terrible. i killed 32 in a few minutes on one day outside the camper with the swatter. constant battle with them in the camper as well. golf carts were ridiculously priced, but that did not stop people by the dozens from renting them, and driving them as fast as they could go all hours of the night. young children drivers (supposed to be 18 or older), older drivers, around and around the camp sites like a race track. it was like being camped in the middle of a go-cart track. even up after midnight. now, mind you the staff was very friendly, and the amenities LOOK great. but then you find out it is an extra $17 per person for the entire stay to use these amenities ( mini-golf, paddle boats, water slide, laser tag). so, $51 later, we now had tags for a golf course that stunk too bad to play some days, ( but for what we paid, we played anyways), over grown rose bushes strategically placed right next to the tee off boards so they would leave wonderful scratches on you as you were playing, and water features that did not work ( not that they were not on, you could see they had not worked in quite awhile) or had a few inches of nasty green slime water in them full of mosquito larvae. water slide was nice, quite fun. pools were nice as well. arcade was geared mostly toward machines that cost a good bit to receive tickets redeemable for really poor quality, cheap dollar store reject prizes. and the kid who ran the prize counter would only be there for 2 hours in the evening, so if you were not there between 7 p.m.-9 p.m., you were out of luck. store was nice, reasonably priced, and once again the staff was very friendly. do not see us going back there again.
