I felt that this park was great for families. You have a HUGE campsite which is a plus. Friendly people, well behaved kids and an awesome river. We stayed with a bunch of other campers and they ALL thought the same. Too bad the bar is being ripped down and a new one can be put up. Now they have no excuse why they cannot get any Chicago Bears football games on the screen :-) The showers and bathrooms I felt, need a paint job and some clean up but overall this place is very nice for anyone who wants to camp by a river and go tubing. Also, the old bar was nice. The store was very small. I hope by the looks of the new construction we will see a new bar and store.

This place is nice for SMALL kids!! We had such a good time here! CLEAN bathrooms! CLEAN campground, and the activities are cool, too. The coolest part was getting autographs from Yogi and the gang! You have to check this place out. The check in staff though seemed like they weren't all there. Oh, you do hear an occasional cart at night but fine by me. Beware of the pool. They say its heated but my daughter, and I found out it was chilly. No wonder why we were the only ones in the pool. The store is packed with food and gifts; it was awesome. The bands were good, too. I feel this place is great for kids under 12! Way to go Yogi!

I will have to admit after reading the previous posts that we thought we would have a great time during Memorial Day. We were so wrong! This place was terrible!!! PLEASE DO NOT CAMP HERE!! I cannot stress this enough!!! First off they put 4 campers on 1 electrical box that is designed for 2 (hence rolling blackouts). This happened throughout the park to everyone the whole weekend. The pools were a milky color the entire time we were there and not clear (don't know what was in them). The bathrooms were very dirty, smelly and were out of toilet paper or paper towels not to mention the overflowing toilets. The were golf carts and vehicles driving all over throughout the night with many of them driving like they were at a speedway (it was really bad at night). At one point I actually feared for my child's safety at this Yogi Bear Campground. We travel and camp a lot, and I have to say this place is the worst east of the Mississippi River. During the whole weekend we spent most of our time buying ice because of the blackouts. The worst part was when they ran out of ice so we had to go into town to buy it which was pretty far away. The funny thing though was my daughter and I (on a ice run) noticed the out gate was broken. Seemed someone could not handle the chaos at this campground and just went through the gate. The manager could not be found until the last day when we were getting ready to leave. He decided to show up, and said he was caught off guard by these "problems". We thought at first to make the best out of it, but it was so poor that other campers around us had the same feeling. As a father who loves to impress his child with the Yogi Bear parks I beg you not to go to this Campground!! Go to another park, please! We are still trying to get at least half of our money back (after the manager promised ) for over a week now. The Yogi Bear Campground Corporation should be ashamed about this park.
