We decided to end the summer by spending the weekend at Jellystone. It was a nice weekend trip. Rented a cabin that was clean...the bathroom was spotless. We didn't encounter any of the problems that I had read about. No flies (I brought bug spray just in case). No late night noise. No kids zooming around on golf carts. The rangers patrolled the park regularly to make sure all rules were being obeyed. But be FOREWARNED...just because you 'reserve' a golf cart at busy times, doesn't mean you will get one. The rangers said they are always overbooked. You will get one eventually but only when people check out/return them. Lots of activities for the kids...more geared for younger kids than tweens or teens. But my tweens had a good time. One helpful hint that I will pass on is to bring a fan....the cabins have a window air conditioner in the living room area and we were glad we had a fan to help move some of the cold air back to the bedroom. It was a hot weekend and really made a big difference during the night. All the employees we encountered were helpful and pleasant.
