This campground was very noisy after hours. A few drunk party goers made sleeping impossible. Our site was very muddy and was quite a mess. There wasn't as much for the kids to do as it seemed. Overall, we were very glad to get home. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort at Mantua in a Tent.
Very nice, family friendly park dedicated to the children under 12 years old. Many staff directed activities for the kids. Safe playgrounds next to camping areas. The shower / bathroom areas are the cleanest I have ever seen. Nice roomy sites, safe electrical hookups, good water pressure. Fishing lake has many catchable bass and bluegill right from shore. Kids caught at least 5 each with worms on a hook. Highly recommend Yogi of Mantua! We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort at Mantua in a Travel Trailer.
OMG!!! Yogi was ok, but now needs help BAD. The staff was overwhelmed and slow to do anything to make it better. I will look for a better Yogi park closer to home. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort at Mantua in a Fifth Wheel.
The upkeep on this CG is going down hill fast. Grass not cut, pool not cleaned, restrooms dirty and the Wi-Fi was down. Years past this use to be an OK place. I will not go back. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort at Mantua in a Fifth Wheel.
Staff was taking reservations when we called for our sites. They indicated that they only had a few sites left in the park and that we could not get the sites requested. On arrival we discovered the park nearly empty, but expected a large influx during our stay, this did not happen. There were only eight other campers in, our table was in bad need of repair, with broken boards with sharp and broken ends. The park is large and could be very nice but really needs some TLC and hard work. The rates are reasonable. They need to look at offering cable and Wi-Fi. Would probably stay again for an overnight.

Overall this is a nice family oriented park that if not for a couple of staff oriented issues would have gotten a higher rating from me. Check in was very fast and while no one offered to lead us to our spot we were able to find it very quickly. The spot that I was given, D1 was not meant for a rig our size but we made do. If it had been a busier weekend it may have been an issue as we were not able to back the trailer completely in our spot and we did over hang the next spot by a good few feet. With that said our space was wonderful. Very well shaded and close to the very clean showers and bathhouse. The campground had outdoor nightly movies and hay rides which were fun. They even had a "wet" hay ride where they had water stations set up around the camp ground and as the hayride passed they soaked down the passengers. Now for the problems. Saturday dawned hot and sunny and the kids wanted to go to the beach at the lake. Once we arrived we noticed all the kids were out of the water. A parent told me that the life guard was on a 15 minute break. One hour later there was still no lifeguard. We telephoned the office and they told us the lake was closed for the rest of the day. The next day we decided to try the pool instead. We were told the pool was closed due to no lifeguards. We went to plan "B" and took our daughter to arts and crafts and paid the fee. About an hour later I look around the corner and the pool is open. Major staff communication issues I guess. We will return and try it again.

We were in the sites nearest the putt putt golf. The sites were very close together (if you have slides and your neighbor does too...it's a close fit!). We had a cement pad on our site, but just for the picnic table, the parking pad was stone. The pool was terrible. No kiddy pool (it was drained) and the big pool was so cloudy, you couldn't see your feet in the shallow end. Lots of stuff floating in the pool. The beach is very nice and is open to the public ($). We enjoyed the beach more than the pool. Garbage was to be picked up daily...never was until Sunday around 10am, by then large piles had built up. Firewood was expensive and new cut wood that was wet, wouldn't burn. House across the street sold good firewood dirt cheap, buy it there. Not a bad campground, but not a great campground. I won't go back, I will look for something else in the area. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort at Mantua in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great park for families. It is very busy on the weekends during the summer. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and the roads were crowded w/kids on bikes. You have to be very watchful. We have a tall fifth wheel and the spot we were in had low hanging branches from a tree in our site. We asked the manager if someone could come and look at them before we left and no one has shown up yet. The pool is small and cloudy, but the lifeguards did seem to be on top of using the net to get out what hair, leaves, etc. out. The general store doesn't have much in it. There were a lot of events going on through the week for kids to enjoy. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort at Mantua in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great campground if you have kids. There is a beach, a swimming pool and many playgrounds within the campground. We never used the pool because it was always full, but there is a beach here also that the kids can have fun at. They also rent canoes and paddle boats. We had a great time here, the only thing I didn't like is how often the restrooms were cleaned. It seemed that no one checked them between 10 PM and 10 AM the next morning. But when they were cleaned they were spotless. Overall we had a great time and probably will return. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort at Mantua in a Tent.
We camped here over Memorial Weekend. Overall the place is nice and clean but in the area we were in (Section N) the sites were very close together. For the money, you could find other places with similar amenities. Although there were activities planned each day, my kids (5 & 7) only found a few of them interesting and some of them cost extra. Since you are not allowed to bring wood in (due to Ash borer containment) you can buy it from the ranger station for $1 a log.

Campground was very nice facility. Sites were good size. Staff was very friendly. Heated pool was a plus. Unfortunately lake events were closed during the two days we were there as campground experienced a problem with staffing. Kids were disappointed in regards to this. Would stay at campground again.

This campground is a little expensive. It has a very large lake and a lot of sites, many of them seasonal campers. There are a lot of activities for the kids. The full hook-up sites in section N are pretty tight. We stayed in section E and had a little more room. One complaint was that we had some heavy rains while we were there and our site got a little flooded. The water ran through our site and collected in a low spot behind our site. The campground was very busy, almost too busy if you are looking for a relaxing atmosphere. The park is also very large, so you’ll need bikes to get around, especially to the swimming section of the lake. You can also rent golf carts. The pool was warm and decent sized. There was not always a lifeguard on duty at the pool, though. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort at Mantua in a Motorhome.
My family and I were very impressed with the cleanliness and amenities this park had to offer. The grass and landscaping was all nicely manicured. The lake area has a nice new playground along with several older playgrounds scattered throughout the park. The full hook up sites along Rt 82 (Section N) are tightly packed next to one another and the traffic noise from the road could keep you awake at night if you leave the windows in your camper open. To their credit however, all the sites were level and on gravel. Strangely the picnic tables are bolted to the patio. That can pose a challenge when trying to park your camper next to it and get your awning directly over it. There are planned activities for the kids all day long. The free daily wagon rides and movies (Yogi Bear cartoons) at the outside theater are a nice touch that the kids really enjoyed. The camp store has limited camping equipment and a few overpriced groceries and souvenirs. There's a modest game room and snack bar on site which can keep the kids occupied in bad weather. Most activities are free and they offer golf carts and pedal cars for rent. Criticisms aside, we will definitely make this an annual destination even after the kids are grown & gone.

This was a very nice park. Very kid friendly for all ages. There was so much to do within the park itself. The park was very neat and clean and well groomed compared to other parks. I was surprised for the amount of people in the park how quiet it was at night. The only con would be that, it is expensive but in my opinion worth it for the cleanliness of the park.

We camp here once a year, my kids love it! Yes it is expensive, but they do have a lot for the kids to do. The pool is great and the kids love the big sand pile at the beach. They now have water inflatables at the beach. The sites are close together, but we don't camp here for the camping experience we camp here for the kids. It is also very close to Geauga Lake.
