First of all let me say, this is a GREAT RV park if you are camping with children. If you are not planning on staying here with kids, there is not much for you to do. They have kid-friendly activities planned at all hours of the day: arts/crafts, tye-dye T-shirts, bubbles, storytime, biscuit throws, toy car races, etc. Yogi Bear comes out every morning to raise the flag and every evening for the Hey Rides. Other camping activities include a pool (pretty good sized), tiny water park (sprinklers, splashing buckets, water guns), playground, miniature golf course (6 holes), panning for "gold" (iron pyrite $). It includes a well stocked store, very clean restrooms and laundry room, and a Cartoon Cafe. Complimentary breakfast (M-F) left a little to be desired (boxed donuts, granola bars, and coffee) but the thought was nice. There is just so much for kids to do here! Upon entering the park, check in can be a little confusing as the store and the entrance to the park are not one and the same. If your site is not a full-hookup (concrete pads up by pool) be prepared for gravel!! All sites down by the river are gravel. Roads are not clearly marked. In fact they virtually blend in with the campsites! However, all of the gravel sites are very spacious. We have a 30 ft. motorhome with no slides, but those with big slides would have lots of room side-to-side to stretch out. Sites are nice and shaded down here and if you choose a riverfront site you are LITERALLY right on the river. Very nice little sand swimming beach to the Current River and a boat launch as well. Canoe/tube rental company operates on the premise so that you can float the river. Currently the river is beautiful. Staff was incredibly nice. For the price of $42 (not a full hookup site) you are really paying for all the activities for the kids. Hence it is not worth the price if you don't need/want all those activities. This is one of the best RV parks we have camped in. My toddler had a blast. Was very full for the weekend with lots of people, so peace and quiet was not the order of the day! But by Monday, they had all cleared out and order was restored. There is a golf course next door to the campground (not associated with the campground), so if you are looking for something else to do beside spend the weekend on the river, it was available. We did not use Wi-Fi so I cannot say as to how good it was, although it is available. Bottom line: this was one of our favorite RV parks and we will definitely be coming back. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in a Motorhome.

All grass or gravel sites with lots of shade. The Current River was very close, clean and clear. The grass was being cut while we were here for 3 days, it had been allowed to get too long and when cut, left quite a mess. Lots of bugs at night. We stayed during the week and they delivered a free pancake breakfast to all campers that wanted it: a neat perk. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

$33.67 was the off season rate as opposed to $42 plus tax in season. For overnight stays in the winter there is a $25 rate. Lots of trees. Located on the current river 3.5 miles north of Highway 60 on Highway "M". There is a full hookup area at the top of the hill by the Store, pool and playground. Down the hill to the river bank are the campsite areas with 30 amps and water, no sewer. These are gravel sites under large oak trees with several literally on the river bank. We were almost the only ones in the campground. It was very quiet. We stayed in the Full Hookup sites with a concrete pad, 50 amps, cable, water and sewer. Water pressure was over 100 pounds so we were using a regulator. Internet access is free and response was excellent. We didn't use the pool, but it looked crystal clear and well maintained. It may have been the time of year, but there were no mosquitoes with the temperature and humidity in the 80's. They are pet friendly and our Maltese enjoyed the stay. Sites seemed well maintained, mowed and trees were trimmed. The full hookup sites had newer electrical boxes and there was expansion work on one of the concrete pads in progress. Hosts were very friendly and gave us a lot of information on the local area. We'll stay here again. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in a Motorhome.

This campground does not deserve to be called a Jellystone Campground. The facilities are not up the the quality we have seen at the other Yogi's. We stayed only one night passing through the area after staying 4 nights in a Yogi in Kentucky. 90% of the sites sit alongside the river but do not have river views. They are your basic canoe rental campground sites. There has been no upgrades (pads, tables, light poles, etc) to any of these sites. The pool is pretty small and the water park they have installed is only a couple of water squirting features. Not what I would advertise as a children's splash playground. The game room/restaurant are only open in the evenings and the food prices are outrageous. We took the kids down to eat and watch cartoons. The 2 piece chicken finger meal with fries was $7.50 and that didn't include the $1.50 drink. Hamburger and hot dogs were more expensive. I couldn't see spending $50 for 5 people to eat there. Also most of the kids activities were scheduled to begin at 8pm or latter. No exactly prime time for my children to start things. I definitely wonder how many activities they even have during the week when the canoeing crowd in not there. If you are looking for the Yogi experience do not go to this campground. If you are just in the area to canoe why pay the costs that they are charging. We will not be back the this park. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We found this park as we were driving through southern Missouri. It was early in their season but the park has an incredible setting. Right on the Current river. If you look at the website you will see it is very family oriented with a pool, new kids pool play area, playground, activities including tubing and swimming in the beautiful river, and onsite restaurant and is next to a decent 9 hole golf course (by others). They book tubing and rafting trips on site and has a decent store. We would love to be here in season and enjoy the river. All facilities were clean and recently renovated.
