Friendly staff, but not the "Jellystone" camping we are used to. We stayed over a holiday weekend and there were no activities for the kids. We like to camp in Sept and Oct and at each Jellystone campground we've stayed at they always have activities throughout the weekend. Sites had no privacy, they were one on top of the other. We're used to have a semi-private location with some trees in between each site. The grounds were really pretty and the fall is a great time to visit. Another thing is that they call the park - Jellystone Campground - Cooperstown, but they are really 1/2 hour away. To me that's a little misleading. We had to travel a 1/2 hour to and from Cooperstown each day. We were under the impression that they were located right outside and perhaps a 10 minute ride at most. Price was very low, but perhaps because there were no activities going on. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Camp-Resort at Crystal Lake in a Travel Trailer.

We are not "Jellystone" folks; we are retired and prefer peace and quiet to Yogi and Boo-Boo visiting. BUT...it was off season and the price was right, so we stayed. We were pleasantly surprised: beautiful sites, excellent facilities, and not crowded. The sign on the bath house said being renovated, so there was some issue there, but when finished it will be lovely: new paneling, cedar on the ceiling, bright metal on the stall sides. Showers were large, had hot water and comfortable. There were some issues so be aware: many, many speed bumps in the park to slow folks down, and they are sharp and create a real thump. The sites we were on were grass and not level. It took a bit of doing, but we got there. The walk to the bath houses is uphill and no paved path, so not ADA compliant. Same for the pool: it is big with lots of chairs and tables, but no easy path to it. Coming in and out of the campground are some tight turns that might be an issue for larger rigs or long trailers. Finally, although they have some nice cabins, they put camping sites right in front; I would suspect in very busy times you would have NO view of the lake, just someone's RV. We would stay again in the off season, but definitely pass on this when crawling with lots of kids, noise, and crowds. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Camp-Resort at Crystal Lake in a Motorhome.

Staff was a bit rude during check in and they were not very helpful. Sites are close and difficult to back into. The cable at our site did not work. We didn't have a good time here and probably will not be back. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Camp-Resort at Crystal Lake in a Travel Trailer.

Great park for families with kids. Always activities going on for them. Pool was huge and clean. Although we were in a tent we camped on a RV site so we could be right on the lake. The tent sites are up on the hill with none having lake front. Fishing for the kids was awesome, the lake is the best stocked lake I have ever seen! Wi-Fi did work at our site. It was a little crowded though and got noisy at night and nothing was done to quiet it. Long walk to the main office, playground, and arcade from most of the sites.

Stayed here while visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame. Usually love the Jellystone CG's. However, this one is not on par. The lake is poorly maintained and very unappealing with the amount of debris in it. We were surprised at how many permanent campers there were. The trash pick up at your site is great, but if you don't want to sit at the arcade, you will not be able to use the Wi-Fi. The staff was a mixed group. Some nice and some indifferent. Will skip this CG the next time around. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Camp-Resort at Crystal Lake in a Travel Trailer.

Pretty, quiet campground that makes a good base for seeing Cooperstown and the surrounding area. It is very relaxing here, and if we are in the area again, this is where we will stay. There are only four 50A sites so if you want 50A, probably best to make a reservation. Verizon air-card doesn't work very well at the site and their wi-fi doesn't work at all the the site. But both work great outside of the arcade where they have tables and comfortable chairs. Many activities are available and the employees were very nice and helpful. Trash is picked up at your site twice a day. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Camp-Resort at Crystal Lake in a Motorhome.

This is a great campground to experience with children. There were many planned activities, hayrides,visits with Yogi and Boo Boo, a clean pool, arcade, boat and bike rentals. It was clean and private. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. We arrived after 11 pm and were guided in to our site by the security guard. This park was not crowded and sites were reasonably spaced. It's a great place for families! We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Camp-Resort at Crystal Lake in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for July 4th weekend. We were very disappointed since it was a Jellystone Park. The employees were mostly very rude and had a I don't want to work type of attitude. They enforced none of the rules. Some of the sites had 2 to 3 tents per site. They had asked some people to leave due to the fact they were cutting down trees with axes and never enforced it. Some people were fixing cars on the campsites & washing dirty dishes in the road. The lake was very dirty. I found this campground to be very trashy. We will not return.

I don't know about the past, but this was a fabulous park for us on our recent visit. You will pay for amenities, but this place had it all. With young children, it's sometimes hard to keep them busy at a campground. At Jellystone Park, there are constant planned activities, as well as a nice game room, miniature golf, boat rentals, and a store that has all your needs. The bathrooms were always spotless, it appeared to me that they cleaned them at least 4 times a day. Having your trash picked up on site was also a nice perk, as well as the visits from Yogi and friends. My 3 year old son LOVES these parks (we also stayed at the one in St. Louis). The staff was pleasant and helpful. Can't say enough good things about it. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Camp-Resort at Crystal Lake in a Motorhome.

My wife and I joined her mom and three other couples that we invited to camp along with us at Jellystone Campground at Crystal Lake in Garrattsville, NY over the week of the 4th of July holiday. We had camped there a couple of times over the past few years and really enjoyed the campgrounds. The kids loved it then and it was a no brainer to go back. Now I do not know if we will ever go back. It is under new management and not nearly as well run as in the past. Granted, there had been some severe rains and flooding in the week leading up to our trip, so I will not mention the logistical problems that that created, but we found it inexcusable that the bathrooms were filthy, out of toilet paper a number of times, and, in one really terrible example, both toilets in the men's room were plugged and about to overflow. We would notify the office when supplies were low, and in one laughable example, after telling them that both bathrooms were out of toilet paper, they sent a staff member with one roll. The place is seriously understaffed. I think that one girl was assigned to clean all of the bathrooms and shower buildings on the grounds the whole week. The activity staff didn't seem very friendly, actually ignoring me as I waved to a couple of them one morning. The snackbar and campstore/office closed early nearly every day that we were there, one time as early as 6:30pm. When the snackbar was open, it was out of paper products a couple of times. Tiles around the pool were cracked and falling off, leaving jagged edged pieces around the pool area and in the pool. The dumpsters at the park were full and overflowing by Sunday (our second day there) and did not get emptied until Thursday. Now, I understand that the holiday was Tuesday, but, come on, we made our reservations for the holiday week back in the fall and I am sure that most of the people there had reserved their site long ago. Management knew they were going to have a full campground, it was no surprise to anyone. Why not make special arrangements to ensure that dumpsters get emptied? We do not have need for the dumping station, but I heard from some campers that it was full and overflowing by Sunday also. I personally know of two campers who pulled out early, before the holiday, due to the conditions. Trailer Life gave this campground a very high rating last year, and I trust that rating. Hopefully they will look closely at it this year before rating it again. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Camp-Resort at Crystal Lake in a Tent Trailer.
