Some of the best, kindest and hardest working owners/staff we've ever seen. Improvements appear to always be happening to this park. Brand new main lodge. New cabins were just being finished while we were here. And they were just putting the finishing touches on their "premium" sites, which feature narrow pond-side back-in sites on class 5 and uniquely curved concrete patio slabs. Sites at south end of park are nicely shaded and appear to be good for small groups, if you choose. Conveniently located right off I-90, but little highway noise detectable. Pool and water-slide area is nice, but way too small to handle demand on most days. Good mix of seasonal, temporary and cabins. While shade is abundant on most sites, sites are very narrow. Sites with sewer hookup are also rare and resort does not appear to offer honey-wagon service. Polite, family-oriented atmosphere with bikes and carts scurrying about. Never any noise at night. Everything is a very short walk away. Center of park features a nice pond with fountain and paddle boats, where kids try their hand at panfish and the occasional turtle. There is no beach. If the water is high enough, you can take a short float down the creek that surrounds the park. If you're bringing kids, be sure to pack light tackle, small nets, bikes and maybe even rubber boots. Bike trails attach to park. Themed weekends and other activities are listed in their website. As with most campgrounds these days, you can NOT bring in your own firewood. Jellystone Austin charges what we think is a steep $5 for a bundle of wood. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

VERY kid friendly campground. There are quite a few Seasonal Sites in the middle of the park. We arrived late but received a very friendly welcome from the staff working at the time. Long pull-thru site. Bathrooms were spotless. Showers were too. Shower was big, private, spotless, and HOT. Many activities available for kids including a petting zoo up through Labor Day. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Unexpected stay because of vehicle problems. Nice park, staff was very friendly and helpful in getting us a spot. No cable TV, site pretty level, bathrooms were a little dirty with the number of people in the park. Looks like a nice place for kids, lots to do. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park definitely has appeal for families with children. I was concerned about running over a child as many were riding bikes and playing in the street. As a result, the campground was very noisy. We were directed to park in a spot that had a very deep mud hole as did several other sites. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Awesome campground!! Very kid/family/pet friendly. We stayed for 4-nights (Fri-Tues) and had a great time every day. There are so many things for the kids to do - whether it is the pool, playground, fishing, paddle boats, etc, etc or the planned activities - we had something for everyone to do each day. The staff is very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. You get a nice 'welcome' bag when you check in with information on the campground as well as local attractions and a few goodies for the kids. The campground was very clean - showers, restroom, general areas and sites. The campers we were around and met during the stay were all very nice and fun to be around as well. Our kids made a few friends that weekend! We were unable to get a site with sewer (they were all booked 4-months in advance) so we needed to use the honey-cart service. Two gentleman showed up to "pump" and we were chatting with them and come to find out it was the owners that were pumping our camper! I was very impressed that the owners would be doing that, and so friendly/happy to be there doing it. They chatted with us a bit, asked us if we were having a good time, if there was anything they could improve on, etc. and just great guys. I would recommend this campground to anyone who wants a great camping experience! We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of our favorite places to camp. Staff has always been friendly, and the park is well cared for. There are lots of things for the kids to do as well. Prices can get a little expensive during peak season, but they also have special weekends with reduced pricing. Sites range from decent sized to quite large. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Very convenient park off of I-90 stayed one night site was under water when we arrived due to all the rain they received that day. Many activities for the kids which is a plus for us. Maybe would stay here again if needed. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

During the summer this place is packed with a lot of locals many of whom are seasonal with some year round. The Campground has been taken over by a new couple and they are very pleasant and energetic. The campground during September is beautiful and quiet.

Park is now part of Jellystone Resort. Stopped for 1 night - easy on & off from I-90. Park is very busy with many kids running around - having fun. Not a place for a quiet weekend away, but looks like a great place for families. Staff was very friendly & helpful. Restrooms are dated and well worn and dirty at end of day. Interior roads are tight & congested. Caution needed due to high traffic of golf carts. OK food served at on-site cafe (pizza & breakfast). We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We did not run into any of the misunderstandings mentioned, but our stay didn't involve children or tents or an extended stay. We had a nice campsite on the water. There are tons of things for kids to do, as mentioned, but the campground is large, so we weren't bothered by excessive noise or activity. We would stay here again.

The rate we paid included the Good Sam discount. The campground is clean and well-kept. Staff is friendly. This campground is specifically geared toward kids. There is a lot for them to do. There is a nice petting zoo. You can rent golf carts to use in the campground. There is a nice cafe that serves a limited menu. We had pizza and it was very good. I would suggest that they change from styrofoam plates to something less dangerous to the environment. Grocery and other supplies were readily available. We did have an experience that was difficult. They parked us in the incorrect spot. About 3 hours later, they asked us to move. As we are older and try to keep our days simple, this was quite a chore to unhook utilities, pull in slide-out, put everything away inside the unit, repark, and set up all over again. What was not satisfactory is that they offered us no compensation for their error, which they readily admitted it to be. We had intended to walk to the petting zoo and to have breakfast at the cafe the next morning. But, because of the experience, we had no energy left to walk, and no interest in giving them more funds. We could have asked for compensation of some sort, but if they were concerned about their customers, they should have offered it to us in some way--other than free donuts in the morning that everyone can get.

Stayed here Memorial Weekend, lots of families, the park was full. Sites are mostly grass with gravel roads, and some sites can be difficult to get into. Several restroom/shower facilities spread throughout the park which was very convenient. Lots of kid activities and good restaurant for burgers, breakfast, etc. Could have used better rule enforcement, kids dropped their bikes right in front of the office door and all over the parking lot, did not use the bike rack hardly at all. Golf carts were everywhere and did not observe the speed limit. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Restrooms & Showers were clean but constantly had a boom box playing. Everything all in one building. Site was level, but on grass. We had 30amp and no sewer. Tight maneuvering and low branches. Very expensive for what you got. We went to see the Spam museum and Mower Historic Center. The Mower Historic Center is on the county fair grounds and so we got 2 for one because the fair was on. Probably will not stay again, seen the sites and not a real friendly campground. Price does not match facilities. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Park was well kept and the bathrooms and showers were very clean. Very friendly workers and the owners were great. Everything is geared for the children and the ones we saw were having a wonderful time. Worth coming a long way to stay at and the best part is you can stay as long as you want on Sunday.
