Managers and staff were very friendly. The sites were spacious and had lots of trees. Nice setting. The Wi-Fi worked fairly well. We did note that the facilities in the park, restrooms and laundry, were in need of cleaning and maintenance work. The final thought is that it is close to our relatives and we would be willing to give it another chance. - joans8849
We were met by staff who gave the family hot chocolate chip cookies and then guided us into our site. Campgrounds clean and well manicured. It was obvious many new renovations and addition had been done. There are lots of activities for kids to do. A mining station are on the grounds for children to enjoy. The camp store is well stocked with necessities for camping and other items to make the camping experience even more fun! Our family had a wonderful experience they still talk about. We will return! - Sharon Floyd
This is a very rustic campground, staff were friendly and helpful at check in. Main road is paved but the other ones are gravel. Our pad was gravel mixed with dirt and weeds, it was a pull-through and fairly level, but sites were close together, big rig access was fine. Little privacy, and with trains, road noise, and kids running around it was noisy! Plenty of space for the towed so no need to unhook if you are just staying one night. There were some shade trees and grass with a barbecue and picnic table. A small pool that was very crowded. Bathrooms were clean but old. I did not check the laundry. There was a small dog park. Wi-Fi and cell were good. Six Flags and other attractions are just down the road. Very good access to 1-44. This was fine as a one night stopover for us, however we did think it was expensive and it is certainly aimed more towards families. - tobyjug
We stay at this Jellystone Park every spring on our way home from Florida. It's always very clean and extremely well maintained. It's not that busy in the spring so we find it to be quiet and peaceful. Some of the RV sites offer a stunning view. I bet you can see for 20 miles. The sunsets are fabulous!
Two things I like best are that they have a huge store with lots of great merchandise I don't find anywhere else and a lovely veranda with tables/chairs and TV to relax at. Also love that they must keep their staff happy because I always find the same great people working there. It's like coming to stay with friends.
Not all sites are suitable for big rigs so be sure to let them know if you need a big rig site. They do always ask about our unit though. It's a nice, clean, friendly park with really good prices in the Spring when we go there! - randy d
This campground is way overpriced. Their published initial rates are only for two people. We paid $76 per night for two adults and three kids. Even "if" all of the kids' activities would have been included in the extra charge, it still would not have been worth $76/night. You have to pay additional for a lot of the activities. Check-in time is 3:00 p.m. and check-out time is 11:00 a.m.--you only get a maximum of 20 hours for the $76 you pay! The road into the campground is in need of resurfacing. The roads within the campground are narrow and could also be resurfaced. Most (if not all) of the RV/travel trailer sites are all gravel--no grass. This made it very difficult for our dogs to relieve themselves. The only grass area to take them to was quite a distance away from our site. The fire rings are buried into the ground and the top of the rings are flush with the ground. When it rained, our fire ring/pit filled up with water and could not be used--so much for a campfire being a part of our camping experience. The only positive comments we have about this campground are that the pool is nice and the staff is excellent. The young gentleman that took us to our site upon arrival was very friendly. He was very sincere in doing all he could to help get us parked and set-up. This young man is a huge asset to this Jellystone location--hopefully the management recognizes it. Most of the rest of the staff here were pleasant as well. The property owners/managers of this Jellystone need to understand that the staff here is probably the only reason this Jellystone is still in business. - Penny C
We stayed here for a friend who had there wedding here. It's clean, with lots of things to do, especially for the kids. We didn't have good weather and I was sick, so we didn't use much of the parks amenities. The sites are kind of small and close together. Ours wasn't very level. It's not our kind of place, but it's clean. - jstrom
