O'Connell's Yogi Bear Jellystone Park, Amboy, Illinois

Date of Stay: October, 2006 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This place has gotten too big for itself. It used to be a relatively quiet campground with lots of activities for the kids. In recent years it has expanded into a former cornfield with very little shade. They began renting golf carts and this has turned the place into a speedway. All day and evening, teens are zooming around in overloaded carts not paying attention to the road. I've nearly been hit several times. Games in the game room tend to just take your money, and good luck finding an employee who cares. Since the owners retired last year, the new managment leaves a lot to be desired. The water electric sites are ridiculously crowded and sometimes inaccessible if you didn't get there early enough. Bathrooms and showers tend to be dirty, especially on popular weekends. They should have enough staff to handle this. Also in the last few years, there seems to be a lot lower standard of clientele that tends to make the park uncomfortable. We have been coming here since 1993, but I dont think we'll be coming much more. We camped at O'Connell's Yogi Bear Jellystone Park in a Travel Trailer.
