Excellent park for kids/Grandkids (and those adults wanting to be kids).

Only drawback was the ground sewer PVC hookup, on most sites were HIGHER or UPHILL than camper wastewater drain. Had to manually lift and drop sewer hose to drain tanks (a real pain). We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Madison in a Travel Trailer.

Big rig friendly with some level sites. We requested change of assigned site because we could not level the camper. Showers and laundry were good. No cable but several local channels using our antenna. Wi-Fi was okay half of the time. Dog park was good. The weekend was nice because of the Halloween Festival. It was easy to ride bicycle in the campground. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Madison in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Walmart was about 10 minutes. Madison and Live Oak are nice small towns nearby. There is not a lot to do in the area. Very convenient to I10 for a short stopover.

This was our third stay at the park. Each time, the owners have gone out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. The sites are all grass/gravel, and the roads are only okay. But the recreational facilities are fine. They obviously work to make this a family-friendly park. Even though we don't have small children, we did not feel out of place. Still, for us, it is the friendliness and helpfulness of the owners that really sells the place. The only real downside, and this has been the case in our two previous trips as well, is the Wi-Fi is very weak and frequently unavailable. For reliable Internet connection, I had to depend on my MiFi. Fortunately, there is very good cellular coverage so close to the Interstate. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Madison in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The lazy river was a lot of fun. The pool was small - about like many hotels - but nice. Lots of area to just walk around and stretch your legs.

Stayed here for just one night in a newly constructed pull-through site designed specifically for overnight stays. These overnight sites need much improvement. The gravel sites aren't too level, and there is zero tree coverage (many other sites have nice tree coverage, however). For some reason the flies were absolutely horrible, chasing us inside. When we stayed the pool was open, but the water park had not opened yet. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Madison in a Motorhome.

We stopped for one night in route home from south Florida., it was perfect for our need. Easy access from I-10. Site was new, long, chipped asphalt, they call it big rig site. Plenty of grass for puppies. Pull through site ample length for 43 ft coach towing Ford F-150. A lot of children in the park, but this was a welcomed sight and sound, since I haven't seen my grandkids for 2 months! It was a nice family park, and great for overnight stop. Never heard any road noise, despite just off interstate. Site had 50 amp, water and sewer, no cable. No trees to disrupt the satellite and the antenna picked up local tv very well. The front office was very busy, but very nice and apologetic for being so busy. We were asked if we needed an escort, we did let them assist us to our site. Our stay was perfect! The only thing that we noted that might need to be addressed, the road in front of the office was a little tight and the corner of the building did hang out too far, wide turn required here. For our needs, great stop, and will stop in the future! We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Madison in a Motorhome.

We stayed for 2 nights in a fairly level, pull-thru site right next to the dump station even though the park was 90% empty and there were many, many other sites available. Roads are paved, sites are gravel. No trees on our site but park has many large oaks and pines. No off-leash dog park but lots of areas to walk dogs. Wifi was very weak at our site. There were a few longterm residents parked next to the lake. Site had water hookup up front, electric in the middle and sewer way in the back so you either needed to pull way up to get the towed off the road or use a sewer extension. Park had many burned out lights. You need a gate code to re-enter if you leave the park after hours. Office staff was cool and a bit aloof but we only had to deal with her at check-in. Convenient to the interstate so I would stay here again but not next to the dump station. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Madison in a Motorhome.

This was an overnight stop but a good value. The entrance was a bit tight for a big rig motorhome. It is an older campground and the big rig sites were new with very soft gravel. Due to recent heavy rains we were afraid of being stuck when departing because of the soft gravel on the site so we had to unhook our toad and back out of the pull-through site and onto more solid

ground than was in the front of the site. The site was long enough to stay hooked up otherwise. The staff was friendly and courteous. There was a waterpark nearby but we did not inspect it. We will definitely return when in the area. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Madison in a Motorhome.

Rate shown is PA. This is a nice enough park, but close to I-10 so there is traffic noise. They have put several new sites in the middle of a barren field when there were many unused sites in the shade nearby, which were closer to the restrooms. The park was nearly empty, but they parked each overnighter in these 10 sites side by side to me. All the park amenities are closed for the season, so I am puzzled by this move. I would rather have parked underneath the tall oaks, which were shadier, quieter, closer to the restrooms and separated more from my neighbors. Regardless, shower and toilets looked fairly clean, and there was a nice store. They are trying to figure out how to attract more people in the off season. It was only for one night and OK for that, but to make it a destination, they need to park people in the more desirable spots. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Madison in a Motorhome.

Office staff friendly, but not knowledgeable of site amenities. Asked for roof-top satellite site and was given one with trees. Not a big deal...we read instead. Easy in and out. All utilities worked. Quiet at night. We were far enough from I-10 that we weren't bothered by road noise. Needs some clean up of bottle caps, cigarette butts, plastic trash. Would stop again for an overnight, but probably NOT during the summer when it would be full of kids. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Madison in a Motorhome.

We arrived on a Halloween-themed evening, so there were lots of kids and campfires, dogs, ATV's, and noise. Kids were driving ATV's and golf carts through the park and between the sites. There were a couple of loose dogs, too. Kids were still roaming the park at 11 PM with no adult nearby. There is a wristband policy, but we weren't given one. It is a bit troubling not to have more security with so many young kids around. Based on our visit, I doubt if any of their stated rules are enforced. No cable here. Just a TV in a musty-smelling room that only had Spanish-language sports channels. Our water hookup had a clogged back flow preventer, so we had to remove it In order to get any water pressure. Bathrooms were okay considering the number of kids in and out. This would be a good place for a family, since there's lots for kids to do. We were allowed to pick our own site, and found one with a great WiFi signal. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was okay for us as an overnight stop at the Passport America rate. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Madison in a Motorhome.

This was a fun park for my family. They had a nice lazy river, large water slide, and pool. There was a lake to fish/kayak/pedal boat in. We stayed on the lake (or water) side and it was a nice view. We stayed during Memorial Day weekend, so the park was completely full. None the less, we were still able to enjoy the activities that the park offered. If you have an ATV and like to ride it, this is a place for you. They have about 90 acres designated for ATV trails. The downsides to this park were the smaller lots (I know this was a busy season, so it might not matter much during other times). Our camping neighbor had several cars parked (almost on top of our camper) that they took up some of our campsite and even ran over our sewage line and cradle. The park should limit the amount of vehicles per site allowed. The ATVs are noisy during the day (and they are not supposed to ride them through the park but they do--so watch out!), but night time was quiet. Another downside was that it was expensive. For 3 nights, my family spend around $250. (this did include a holiday surcharge, but they make you pay extra for the amenities). We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Madison in a Travel Trailer.

The price is for Passport American including taxes. This is just a OK park for a 1 stop over. Some sites are tight and not that long for pull through. Place could be cleaned up some, to see the sites. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Madison in a Motorhome.

We arrived after dark shortly before 8 PM, and there were still office staff available. They were friendly. The big problem we had was that the roads through the camp sites were poorly defined, and we had a lot of difficulty finding and getting into our site. I did not see any slabs or gravel. The sites were packed dirt or sand. For awhile, it was a nightmare getting to our site. The next day, the place seemed better with the sun up. It looked to me like a place for kids in the summertime.

This is a huge park and must be a recreational destination at some time during the year. The evening we were there, there were only five or six other campers, so we all pretty much had the park to ourselves, and had a wide choice of places to park our RV. The rate we paid reflects the Passport America rate. The sites were fine, and the hookups satisfactory. The only negative was that the roads are a bit narrow with lots of trees, making navigation a tad difficult. Still it is an attractive park, and we would stay here again.
