Date of Stay: September, 2016
Our family has stayed at "The Yogi" many weekends during the summer for the last 5 years and have always enjoyed our stay. The main reason that we spend the extra $$ and stay at this park is because the kids love Yogi Bear and in the past there was always an "engaged" staff for exciting activities, hey-hey rides and character interaction. Recent management changes are noticeable and the staff seems less engaging, especially with the kids/activities.-there was no singing on the hey-hey ride and very little excitement with the pool activities. I don't think that we will stay here in the future unless the new management addresses/corrects this issue, I know that good help is hard to find, but for the extra $$ my expectations run much higher.

Great RV Park. The only negatives that I can point out, 1) WiFi did not work for me, I did try 2 devices, was slow at connecting, so used my cellular data, problem solved. 2) The other watch-out is that they absolutely do not want you driving or parking on the grass or "cutting" through vacant campsites on your way out or in to your site, both state a $125.00 charge that will go on your credit card they catch you. There is a sign in the office that states by checking in, you agree to this....This seems a little ridiculous to say the least (no issues for me, I normally do do either), and I don't recall seeing this stringent rule at other places. Other than that great park, clean and friendly--close to attractions. We will stay here again.

I actually waited too late to make my reservation, so I had to reserve a spot at another campground down the road. On our way in, I told my wife that we weren't driving past Johnny's without stopping to see if they had a cancellation and they did. Spent a full week there, the kids love the pool area and it close enough to the beach. Booked my site for next year. GREAT Place and very family friendly.

Great State Park. Tons of trails and hiking available. It can be a little tight for big rigs and big campers getting in and can be tricky after dark getting into your site. That said, someone is always willing to guide you backing in. Clean park with friendly staff.

This was our first visit to Oak Mountain State Park, definitely a great family park. There are tons of hiking/biking trails, horse back riding, golf, fishing, kayaking and swimming the lakes. Plenty of activities for all ages to enjoy. The sites are paved, however, some have the fire pits and picnic tables down a hill or on a ledge, the park does have a few hills. My only complaint would be the posted speed limit within the campgrounds is 15 mph, most private parks are 5-10 mph, and having smaller children, the speed limit seemed high... 5 or 10 mph would be perfect. Friendly staff and the park seemed clean. We will visit Oak Mountain State Park again.

With smaller children, we enjoy the Jellystone Parks. This one, however, was our least favorite. Smaller park, so the permanent campers/residents really stand out with their older living quarters. We only stayed one night as we were traveling to another destination, but first impressions would keep us from staying again.

Family friendly park, not far from Gulf Shores and beach access. Pool and lazy river area was perfect for our family, especially with smaller children. Sites are a little close; however, we didn't feel cramped in anyway. We enjoyed the campground enough that we booked again for next summer. Plan ahead with reservations. This park tends to book quickly. Our rate reflects the weekly price.

We stay at this park 3 - 4 weekends during the summer. Having smaller children, the park has tons of activities to keep the kids busy, pool, putt-putt, basketball, volleyball, playground, and "Hey Hey" Hay Rides with one of the Yogi characters. Also, plenty of nearby attractions if you want to leave the park and site see. Close to Opry Mills Mall, Grand Ole Opry, Downtown Nashville, etc. Staff and management are very friendly and accommodating.

The park was extremely clean and well maintained and the staff was friendly as well. There are several gas grills around the campgrounds that are available, making grilling out easy. All sites are level and are gravel (the gravel posed no problems). There are several rental cabins and permanent sites. Clean laundry facility too. Great view of the mountain and having Tallulah Falls, Glen Falls and Sky Mountain within just a few miles, what a great place to stop and stay. We stayed 6 nights and would highly recommend River Vista Mountain Village to our friends and family. We will stay here again

Great place for family. Beach area on lake, canoe and paddle boat rentals and miles of hiking/biking trails. The sites are somewhat easy to access, most are level, but narrow. There are also limited sewer hook up sites, but water and electric are available on all RV sites. Plenty of shade through out the park. There are also 2-3 playgrounds available for the kids. Overall, this campground was fun, clean and enjoyable. Keep in mind that if you want to fish, a state fishing permit is required and are a bit pricey for non-residents.
