What can I say about the best campground we have stayed in. Now have stayed 17 nights and have enjoyed them all. Activities great, facility extra clean, staff extremely accommodating and friendly. Cable TV of over 80 channels! Free WiFi near excellent. This is proof of you get what you pay for. Worth the $$$. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Lazy River in a Motorhome.

Second time staying here. Had a great spot right on the river. Water park feature and two pools are great for the kids. River is also quite good, though it was a bit shallow given the dry spell recently. Still, were able to wade/walk in it, and kayak too. Highlight for us was being able to rent a hot tub! They brought it to our site, filled it with hot water, and it was waiting for us when we arrived. Used it every day- just awesome. Food by the pool was surprisingly good. Campsite store was fine. Getting a good seat by the pools can be a challenge- should get there early. Also, the river front sites with the concrete pads are pricey- that was my biggest negative. But all in all, enjoyed our time here and will definitely return. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Lazy River in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this campground in 2016 without issues. 2018 presented many issues. The campground has been greatly expanded since last season with both new cabins and new sites. Escorts in golf carts took each camper to their site ---except for our 39' rig and most likely others too. We were abandoned by the escort as he indicated he didn't know where our site was. He never came back for us!!!! He had the same map we did and after a nearly 30 minute wait we figured it out for ourselves. None of the new sites were numbered even with temporary signs. There was no fire ring (very chilly weekend) or cable for our site. We called and had to leave a message which was NEVER returned and we asked an employee who NEVER got back to us either. Communication is a HUGE issue as we wrote a letter (4 weeks ago) to the campgrounds with these issues and have NOT heard back from them. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Lazy River in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for one week and we have nothing but good things to say about this campground. The facilities are spotless and the staff is friendly and professional. There are many activites for kids and while this is not a quiet campground in the afternoons or evenings, quiet-hours are respected by all. We will definitely be back!

They have dumped a bunch of money into the park which reflects in price to stay. The pool is great, lots of activities. They seem to be catering to the cabin rentals and have put in a ton of new ones, so you get lot of "non camping" people. Dog park is really nice. Lot of new sites up on hill but out in the sun. more sites have concrete pads and patios also which is nice. It's close to home so I will be back.

This is a nice park, although a bit pricey. We stayed in a full hookup pull through site on packed gravel that was very easy to navigate and reasonably level. We had initially booked one of their deluxe riverside sites with an upgraded cement pad. but took a reconnaissance trip to the park a few weeks prior to our trip and didn't like how close the river sites were to the busy access road. We changed our reservation and we're glad we did. Cable and wifi worked fine for us, and we enjoyed our campsite, which had okay separation from neighboring sites and partial shade, as well as picnic table and fire ring. But this park was CROWDED. They really pack the campers in, so there's lots of coming and going throughout the day. Things settled down in the evening, but the park featured a live weekend band so it didn't really get peaceful until about 11pm. There's plenty to do for kids in this park, with a jumping pillow, water park, playgrounds, etc. The camp store is well stocked and not too pricey. The campsite rates, however, seem high for what they are. All in all it was a good time. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Lazy River in a Travel Trailer.

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.

We stayed at a site on a newly created section they call "Up on the hill" and it definitely was. Weather was extremely hot and it was compounded by the fact that the "Hill" had absolutely zero shade. The campground itself was clean and well kept. The pool and children's water park were pretty crowded but given the nearly 100 degree temps that was to be expected. There were not enough chairs around the pool area. I learned later that the water park is open to the general public for a fee so not only were there campers and cabin people there but people that were just there to use the facilities as well. That caused more overcrowding than was necessary. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Lazy River in a Travel Trailer.

This was a nice park if you had a family. Great water slide pool but not too much hiking. Sites were close together and not secluded. Very noisy

Nothing special. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Lazy River in a Motorhome.

We stayed on the hill, next to the party house that the campground rents. There is no facilities on the hill. All gravel no bike riding downhill safely. This is the worst campground we have ever been to. They have a staff of children who don't know anything. This is poorly run, and charge you for each thing you might do. They charged $15 to go in early (2 hours) and no one was on the campsite. Their internet is worthless on the weekends when they are crowded. The internet was down for days and all they said was .."Up in a few hours" The showers were damn and dingy and we had to drive to them. Save your money, this place thinks they are Disney...they need to visit Camp Wilderness to see how to qualify for the high price they charge. Save your money go to a state park at all costs. This place is packed with lots of children and they have lots of teenagers running it. If I see the name Jelly anything or see any park associated with this one I will be speeding by. Learn how to run a campground and study about tourism. Gardiner is a wonderful town, what a bad taste you would have if you only stayed here.

This is an expensive campground. Sites are $75-$100+/night. Cabins are more. The sites are large but we have found that people have no problem walking right through them and not respecting your space. Management does nothing about this. The activities are great, lots to do including splash pad. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Lazy River in a Motorhome.

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.
