We got to our site and the trees were too low for our camper so we asked if we could move. We moved and went for dinner and got back and realized that the power was not working. Nobody was able to help us until morning. In the morning we were told by the maintenance man that they were aware of the problem but we had to move our camper again. There weren't sites available where our camper would be facing the playground so we went to a cheaper site. We paid for the Yogi Sites- (boating and golf included). Boating was never available. The store and game room was not always open and we had to deal with a crying disappointed child many times. There were multiple events that were supposed to be available for the kids that were never done. We were told it was because they were short staffed due to some schools still going on. The pool slide was only run by request and the children s pool was open twice in the 3 days we were there. The snack bar and all events by the pool were closed. Staff never showed up for the hayride. The campsites were very loud and right next to the interstate. We did complain and not one person said sorry. We were just told " we can do these things by request". This was not true. When we asked about the kids pool being closed, we were told they could only run one pool at a time due to staff shortage. The staff that was watching the pool was also the activity person so that took care of all the activities being canceled also. Our whole reason for going early in the season was to avoid some of the rush. We had to pay the same rate everyone else does later in the season and did not get to use half of the amenities. We will never go back to this particular Jellystone. We also heard from many others that they also will not be back. If they did not have staff for everything they advertise they offer, they should NOT be open. We camped at Yogi Bear's Camp-Resort in a Travel Trailer.

A little noisy with the bridge above us but overall a nice place. The port-a potty was disgusting and not cleaned very often. I think maybe this would be better in an RV than a tent. It is beautiful by the river and most sites are next to the water. We camped at Pettibone Resort in a Tent.

We have a seasonal campsite here. This is our first year and we are quite impressed. Our only complaint is there is not much grass. On the upside, there are activities for the kids, a playground, movies outside, kickball, bingo, a swimming pond, mini golf. They also are having a concert event scheduled. There is a new bathhouse and the new owners are very open to any ideas or suggestions. We feel at home. I would recommend this campground We camped at Whispering Pines Campground in a Travel Trailer.
