“Labor Day at Jellystone Park”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

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.

We all had a GREAT family trip to Jellystone Park in Luray. This was our first camping experience and decided on the comfy cabin (didn't want it to be too nice by choosing the cottage). The cabin was VERY clean (I was very impressed/surprised). Our unit had a pretty new looking fridge and the bathroom toilet and shower stall looked better than some hotels I've stayed in (better in the sense of no rust or dirtiness). The beds....well, they weren't very comfortable but we were supposed to be roughing it anyway.

They had plenty of fun activities for the kids. We played laser tag outside, did a little hiking, mini golf and played in the pool. The kids were to have no electronics the 3 days we stayed and they didn't miss them at all. (Btw - 3 days were enough for us.)

The only downside from the stay were the flies!!!!! More flies than I've ever seen. Luckily, we all enjoyed the other parts of the park or the flies alone could have made the trip unbearable. Our 14 y.o. will have to bring a friend with him next time to make it more enjoyable. The park is geared more towards the younger kids.

Everyone working there was very nice....staff in the offices as well as staff facilitating the activities. They were all very pleasant.

Room Tip: C48 was close to pool, playground, pillow bounce.

This was our second travel trailer trip to this location. The Park is great and there is so much to do near by. We have two teenagers and stayed 5 days so it was nice that within 5 miles there were a lot of activities to pick from, a WalMart and various fast food for convenience. The per night rate is high but inclusive of the amenities which was a good value for my family of four. The Rangers were friendly and attentive. We didn't have any mosquito issues but the flies at our camp site were relentless. I made sure my site never had food or garbage out, fly traps which didn't really work, flyswatters and a fan blowing in my direction where I would sit. Next time I will bring a pop up screen house! We never could get an internet connection and my Verizon phone roamed constantly so make sure you remember the charger.

This was our second trip to Camp Jellystone and we had a great time!
The cabins are very clean and the camp ground is convenient to attractions, etc.
They have added a splash zone for the kids, which was perfect in the hot sun.
We will return.

This was our second trip to this campground. This time we roughed it in a tent. We chose the deluxe tent site with pavilion , which was nice, especially when it rained. Overall, good experience here. The price to rent golf carts is on the steep side . 200 for 5 days ! Be prepared to walk a lot if u choose not to rent one. My only major complaint was the bath houses were nasty. They only clean them once in morning and once in evening and in between those times they are filthy ! I mean like toilet paper, feces on floor, hair all over the showers , mud and bugs in the sinks. I don't expect the bathrooms to be immaculate ,but they were down right gross! I think a 8 pm closing time for pool in the middle of summer is early, maybe a extension until 9 should be considered? The staff were always helpful and courteous though.
