Nice Park for family's with kids. Was just my wife and I. We stopped in for two nights. At check-in they gave wristbands to put on, told us if we lost them it would be a $20. charge. If we got caught without them on they could throw us out. Not having fun yet. Dinner plans with some local friends. Not putting it on. Maybe a clip on badge would work better. The site was muddy with a street drain in the middle of it but level.

Great place for large family's. Not for couples. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Lazy River in a Travel Trailer.

Sad to say that after camping in our RV for many years at Jellystone in Gardiner New York, this past Memorial Day 2016 weekend was my family's last.

This used to be a nice friendly family owned campground until it was sold to Michigan based Northgate Resorts making it a corporate owned campground. Under corporate ownership the rates have risen higher than any other campground in New York State. You are nickel & dimed to death for every little thing.

As with all campgrounds, there are rules to follow which I believe makes for better and safer camping. This campground has a list of rules that are given upon check-in. I was told that if we break any of the rules such as not wearing issued wristbands or move the fire ring, my credit card will be charged $25 for each offense. If you have a young child that happens to lose a wristband they also charge $25 for a replacement. I've been camping for 35 years and this is the first campground where I had to wear a plastic wristband and if I'm found not wearing it, I will be charged $25.

When we were here on Memorial Day weekend, the 10-month old water park was closed the entire time for repairs. When I called the campground office a few days ahead of our arrival I was told the water park would definitely be open for the holiday weekend. When we went to the Tiki Bar for ice cream we were told they didn't have any yet. How can you not have ice cream for a major holiday weekend?

The current top management has very poor customer service skills. When you ask a staff member a question, they cannot answer simple questions about the campground. They need to be trained in customer service skills and campground policy. With the new management in this campground the customer is always WRONG and it is now the campground of NO.

So if you like speeding golf carts, high prices and where the customers are not treated well by the staff, then this is the place for you. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Lazy River in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first camping experience, close to home, people were great, they are doing a lot of upgrades and adding a new water park, not yet completed while we were there. We had a (premium river view site) that was great, with some tree cover. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Lazy River in a Travel Trailer.

This was an overnight stop on our way to New England. The sites for 50 amp are in the back on a hill. The 50 amp sites are about 70% seasonal. It took a little maneuvering to get it but, was OK. Weak WiFi - Cable TV was good. Little pricy for what you get. Would probably not stay here again. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Lazy River in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park but too expensive. They charge for everything. Off the beaten path but a nice setting. Charge for Wi-Fi. TV on cable is good. Long, level sites. No AT&T phone service. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Lazy River in a Motorhome.

I have stayed here many years Memorial Day weekend and this had to be the worst. There was no hot water for 2 days, had to call several times to have the bathrooms cleaned, no soap for two days and bathrooms were disgusting to say the least. Paid for WiFi and still could not connect. Not sure why they would not have kayak rentals or snack bar open on one of the busiest weekends of the year which is terrible. Candy bar bingo was terrible instead of doing more games they gave out 18 to 35 pieces of candy for the winner which with the amount of people there do more games the place was packed. Staff is extremely rude we paid top dollar for this weekend but yet they do not give you anything that the summer campers get (snack bar, kayaks, pedal carts) They definitely cater to the seasonal and the golf carts flying around there from the seasonals are so dangerous. I have been going here for at least 4 years but I have to say after this weekend it is my last trip there. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Lazy River in a Motorhome.

Great setting on the river, well maintained and a good mixture of seasonal and transient sites. We stayed one night on our way south, enjoyed the park for the time we were there and would return for a longer stay. Definitely big rig friendy as the roads around the park are wide and easy to negotiate with our 40 foot four slide RV. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Lazy River in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed at many jellystone parks and this by far has to be the worst. From the moment I checked in i got a bad vibe. The check person was unfriendly rude and acted like i was bothering him. The rental place (for bike and kayaks) opens and closes when it feel it like(supposedly it an outside operator). You get nickel and dimed to death. The WIFI was $5 a day. The golf carts are dangerous, often speeding, and kids driving them. It seems the staff would rather have seasonal campers over the weekend people. The only "YOGI" theme is the signs with the characters pictures, I have to young kids (2 and 5) and we saw Yogi once a day. They have a lot of nerve calling this place a Jellystone park. The only plus sides are the place is pretty, the recreation staff is nice. The level sites have plenty of gravel. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Lazy River in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed here several times and have never been disappointed. The sites are level, campground is clean and staff very helpful and friendly. Has two pools: one more for kids than the other, great camp store, has everything you could possibly need. Plenty of activities for kids and relaxing for adults too!

Very nice park. We were the only campers here. They do have a few seasonal campers here tho. Wife used the washers and a couple didn't work. She also said the floor is sinking! They need to fix the laundry room but the rest of the park looks to be in great shape. We had site 153 so had great satellite and good Verizon with our amplifier on. Their price of $4.95 for Wi-Fi usage is to high. Glad we didn't have to pay it. Nice place without the summer crowds. Would stay here again in the off season.

$55.00 for W/E (30AMP) in an open grass field was very high. Has no sewer and no cable TV. We were considered in the "overflow" area. WiFi was a $4.95 per day fee. Of course we did not pay. (In Canada it was free at all the campgrounds we stayed in.) In order to get to the dump, once we were out of the EXIT gate, we had to unhook our toad and back the motorhome up to the dump. Very poor arrangement for the placement of the dump. Guess since they were one of 2 campgrounds in the area, they could charge what they wanted. This place was CROWDED.

One of the cleanest parks I've been to. Great place for families. Activities galore. Pools and snack bar are great. I have and will continue to recommend this place to others. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Lazy River in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a well maintained campground and we camp there annually every Columbus Day. It has a lot to offer for families and the Halloween weekend was a blast. However, the 2 reasons I can't give a higher rating is the high holiday rate and their reservation policy, because each year it changes. We used to reserve the same sites each year, if we booked them before we checked out. This year, other campers we able to reserve our sites without giving us the option. When asked why the change in policy, the owners insisted it was always that way, and it did not matter that we've been camping there for years. It seemed that they did not appreciate their loyal customers. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Lazy River in a Travel Trailer.
