Beautiful campground with tons of amenities. Waterslide, jumping pillow, 2 pools, splash pad area, mini golf, and more! More cabin options than I've ever seen before. We stayed only 1 night to visit Mammoth Cave. Campground is very hilly and our site was not level side-to-side. We had the largest pull-through spot in the campground (#86) and it wasn't very large. Thought we were close to the bathroom, but it was quite a hike and uphill all the way back. Most everyone had golf carts, very hard to get around otherwise (sign says "bike at your own risk"!). No designated dog park area. Nicely stocked camp store. Park seems more suited for small campers and tents, but would stay here again. Definitely a "destination campground" catering to families. We camped at Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is hilly and spaces are not level. Set up is difficult. May be a good park for families with a lot of activities. Would not stay here again! We camped at Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Travel Trailer.

For what is suppose to be a resort type of campground, I can't give more than a 7. The campground was okay, but many of the sites were not level and small. I felt a little cramped here. The bathrooms were dated, but clean. If you have children, they will enjoy the activities and the pool. Short drive to Mammoth Cave. We would camp here again, but I'd want a site that is bigger with some shade. We camped at Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

I won't rate this park highly. It is primarily geared toward children and they do have a lot of activities for the kids. The sites are not so good. This campground has been around for years and is not designed for today's larger RVs. I had problems with tree branches scraping my roof on several of the streets. We were put on a gravel pull-through site at the bottom end of the park and it just left a lot to be desired. There was a tree on one side and a pole on the right. It was nearly impossible upon leaving to clear both of these. The water pressure was terrible and when taking a shower we had to rely on the pump in the motorhome to get enough pressure to rinse off. The power went out once. It came back on fairly quickly, but there was this moment when I thought I'd have to fire the generator as it was very hot outside. There are a LOT of bicyles and golf carts riding around. If you're looking for a peaceful campsite, this is not the place. If you're looking for a place where kids will be entertained constantly, you've probably found your place. We camped at Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

The campground is not bad, but could be much better. I asked for and was given a shaded site when I made reservations (thank you). The area around the office is congested and the addition of a new pool/additional cabins will only make the area worse. A child on a bicycle or walking will get hit. The pool and water slide both need some maintenance. Most if not all of the sites need to be leveled and have some gravel replaced on them. We camped at Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a wonderful park for children. There are numerous activities. The staff is friendly. There are a lot of local people camped in this park. My grandson loved the activities and the park itself is convenient to Mammoth Cave. The downside is this: the restrooms were very primitive. Showers were surprisingly primitive for such an expensive park with so many other amenities. We have camped for 45 years. My husband has never seen such a primitive and poorly maintained restroom for campers. We camped at Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

We were here early in the season and many of the recreation venues were not up and running. None the less, the staff was very friendly and our site was quite nice. We camped at Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Friendly staff, Wi-Fi was a little weak. A great family campground close to Mammoth Cave, lots of activities in the summer months. We camped at Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Our site was excessively unlevel, to the point of not being able to level our trailer (side to side) even with numerous boards stacked under the wheels. Because it was so bad, getting it somewhat close took an excessive amount of time. Wi-Fi was spotty at best, but it was the 4th of July weekend and the park was full, likely causing an overload to their router. Mini-golf and pool usage were included in cost of stay, which was nice. Our child also loved meeting Yogi, Boo Boo, and Cindi Bears numerous times during our 4 day stay. We might stay there again, but not unless we hear that they improve the levelness of the sites and start updating the facilities (mini-golf, rest rooms), especially considering that this is a more expensive campground.

If your young and healthy it's an ok park but the pool, playground (had my grandchildren), miniature golf and gameroom are all far from your RV site along with hills all over making it difficult to walk and watch them. I do not believe there is a level site in park. (We are full timers so have been to a lot of places.) What's up with the sewer being higher than RV or your electric on one side and sewer on the another. Season ends on Labor Day so we were lucky the pool remained open (not heated) for one more week! It did have a nice laundry and the staff was friendly. We camped at Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an OK campground. We used it for a day and a half stay to see Mammoth Cave. They have a pool and a water slide. The slide was included for the guests which is a nice change. However they closed the pool twice in the middle of a 100 degree day because there was some thunder off in the distance. They stated that is their policy. The pool then reopens after there's no thunder for a half hour! It did not storm until 5 hours later when a separate storm rolled in. Although this time when they closed it again it was necessary as there was lightning. Everything else was OK. We didn`t use anything else outside as it was too hot! Otherwise it was an OK place.

Well: it IS a nice park for kids. Activities are planned, although several times no one (guests) showed up. The pool and slide are nice. But: the sites are terribly unlevel, trash is strewn around, flies are a hazard, and there are no trees to speak of. We continuously blew the breaker on our 50 amp site. (We think it was because of the drier, but the generator could handle it.) The pool Is overly crowded because they sell admission to the locals. I would stay again, but would expect less than I did this time. We camped at Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

We camped in site #36. We picked this campground because another we were considering did not have a pool and it was hot. That said we should have gone with the one without the pool. There is not too much nice to say about this campground for us. Good: had a slide but line was long and it was buggy outside so you were getting bit while waiting for turns. Pool: it was wet but so crowded you could not move and no one was following the rules of no jumping, no horseplay and (the scariest), no diving. It was close to Mammoth Cave, about 9 miles away and somewhat near Lincoln's Birthplace which was why we were here. We thought because we arrived late on a Sunday that most of the weekenders would be gone. Found out they leave on Mondays. There are lots of activities for parents to dump their children at so they can go to the pool or their sites to get drunk and rowdy themselves. There seemed to be no policing of any rules at this park. Golf carts are to be avoided because the drivers are not watching for kids, dogs or anyone walking on the paved roads. Sites were so unlevel we kept rolling out of our beds. We could not dump our tanks in a FHU site because the sewer was uphill of our RV and was over 30 ft away from our drain. There is no cable or TV stations available and the Wi-Fi sucked unless you were at the office, as we found out. Even our Verizon Mi-Fi would not get data at this park. Site was barely able to fit our MH and toad. Felt like we were hanging over the road and would be hit by a crazy driver. Water pressure was very low. There was no direction to the traffic in the park. All roads were 2 way but only wide enough for one vehicle at a time. Woe to the person driving through and meeting another RV in the center. Who will have to back up, especially uphill? On Monday morning some campers thought it would be fun play musical car alarms at 6:30 am to wake up entire campground. And most of all: the price was way too high. This has definitely solved our need to ever stay at another Jellystone in the future. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, not going to happen. We camped at Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

We camp here for Halloween weekends and it is a blast. The kids actually get to trick or treat at night and it is very safe. Lots of activities for kids. Summer weekends are nice, as well with the pool and waterslide. We camped at Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Tent Trailer.

We spent spring break here with another family that stayed in a cabin and had a wonderful time. The activities were fun for the kids and they loved the 'Hay hay hay' rides! The only down negative thing about the visit was the fact that the fishing pond was drained: we were told the week before that it would be available. Overall we did enjoy our stay.
