The big rig sites are unshaded and pretty much stacked like cord wood. No WiFi in this area and the cable quality was poor. For the money, I'd have to look elsewhere..speaking of which, gee, we could have gotten a hotel for less than this cost us.

The campground is very clean and there are tons of activities for the kids. The sites are pretty nice, some larger than others. They seem to have added in quite a few big rig sites which they charge $2/day extra for but for the most part have no shade.They have a new pool with waterslide that my 6 yr. old son loved. The waterslide pool also has a beach entrance at the opposite end which is great for small kids. We are going back this year. However, the price of the park is ridiculous. They charge everyone (except for seniors) a $7/day activity fee during the peak season ( you are talking an extra $21/day for a family of 4) and $3/day in the off season. You then have access to all the amenities of the park such as the waterslide, the paddle bikes, mini golf, and the moon bounce. What a waste of money! The whole weekend my family was there, the only one who got any use out of these amenities was my son but everyone is required to pay the fee. Not only that but everyone is required to wear a wrist ban to use the amenities, if everyone has to pay it why the need for wristbans. These amenities should be built in to the price of a nightly stay or given as an option not a requirement. We are going back again this year but if the price continues to go up, we will no longer be camping there.

We have stayed at this campground before as an overnighter. It is a very nice, neat, clean campground. The road leading into the campground is a little narrow for a large rig, but is doable. We have always been put in an area with excellent pull thrus, easily 35x60, gravel with grass and nice landscape. Cable is extended cable. The staff is friendly. They have us in the computer and after they pull us up they always say, see you have been here before, welcome back. Always ask us where we are going on this trip - nice touch. This campground is definitely very well taken care of and the owners have a lot of pride. Staff is always riding around on golf carts checking things out, picking up trash, etc. Would highly recommend this place. Actually stayed at another Jellystone assuming all Jellystones were up to this standard and found out the hard way they are not.

Although this campground provides far from a wilderness-type experience and the hiking trails are limited, it is superb for those with small children. There are many, daily "Yogi-related" activities, nightly (outdoor) movies, a separate camping area for tents (one which is more isolated and quieter than the rather congested RV sites), extremely clean (and private!) rest rooms and showers, well-maintained grounds and recreational facilities, a diverse selection of cabins, a well-equipped camp store, and a staff which escorts arriving campers to their sites and cheerfully remedies any perceived problems. Highly recommended for families! We camped here in a Tent. NOTE: as of the summer of 2006, there is a significant of amount of construction underway at this campground, which is limiting to some extent the availability of a number of recreational facilities.

If you have kids and like lots of activities this is the campground for you. Every week has a theme and a variety of activities are always going on. Your kids shouldn't get away without meeting some costumed character during your stay. The campsite has a variety of different kinds of sites and a great map on their website so you can think ahead. My only complaint, aside from this being one of the most expensive campgrounds we've stayed at is that we always had a longer walk to the bathhouse than any other place we stayed. The cabins are clustered around the main bathhouse. The cabins are nice - the cottages even have a bathroom! The first time we stayed there I was 7 months pregnant and boy did I appreciate that Cozy Cottage! There is a laundry room, gameroom, volleyball court, 18 hole mini golf course, basketball court, horseshoe pits and heated swimming pool, two nice playgrounds. You can also rent "push peddle karts" and bikes. If you pay in advance they meet you at the gate and escort you to your site as well as give you a coupon book. A few pointers: If you have toddlers stay away from the area around the office and Jellystone Parkway. The bikes are flying through there all day and there is a lot of vehicular traffic there too. I about had heart failure several times as my friends toddler kept trying to cross over to see us. Second, if you have a big camper be sure to specify that when you make reservations. I can't see a Bayside on some of the WE sites, especially along Deer Trail. Since it was our first trip I asked for a pullthrough and they put us out with the big rigs - no shade and too far from the bathrooms! I would not recommend this campground if you are looking for tranquility, but if you pick your themes right your kids will not be bored.

Excellent well run camp ground. Clean rest rooms. a lot for the kids to do. Price is a little high but quality is worth something.

We had a nice site on the side of the park with full hookups. We were right across from the playground, so I could keep an eye on the kids. Park is clean and well kept. They have added wireless internet since we visited last year -- a great thing for my web addicted hubby. Highly recommended.
