We arrived here after dark in a 45' MH, towing a 24' race car trailer. Did I mention it was also raining? To say we were probably the biggest thing that had ever visited this park would be an understatement, but somehow we managed to get in and out without causing damage to anything. The park itself was actually quite nice once we got in, set up, and I had a stiff drink to calm my nerves! My fault for showing up after dark, but the access roads could use a little TLC if they are going to advertise this location as "big rig friendly". We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Mill Run in a Motorhome.
Stayed here in June and July 2011. We kept our fifth wheel in storage during the between time to save gas. Camper was fine upon our return however, the brake cord had been stolen. It was replaced by the staff when they learned what happened. Our first site was at the very top of the campground and in need of landscaping and general grass care. All sites in this area lacked basic care and seemed messy. Our second site was on a loop and was extremely tight to get our camper onto it. The staff assured us they would move and place for us but they did not. The swimming area was brand new and great for kids, but there was still construction going on and made the whole area look unfinished. We had a good time, lots of activities for the kids but would not return as the campground was not worth the price we paid. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Mill Run in a Fifth Wheel.
The campground was great. Lots for the kids to do, however the people working in the store and registration were extremely rude. I even had one of the ladies in the store argue with me regarding the price of an item I was buying. The tag clearly stated the price however she refused to budge on the item and I was over charged. I gave the park a 7 because of the facilities but they would have received a 9 if not for the rude employees. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Mill Run in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped at this Jellystone the week following Labor Day Weekend in September. Our major complaint was the golf cart mania. Most campers were driving golf carts around the campground in excess of the posted speed limits, and many times younger children were behind the wheel, despite the rules disallowing this. We did not feel safe allowing our children to go across to the playground for fear they would be hit by golf carts. The quiet hours (11pm) seemed a bit late for our family. There was a DJ from 9:00 PM till 11:00PM with unavoidable music blasting throughout the campground. There is a put-put golf course that was in disrepair and when we were there, most of the fairways were covered with leaves. In addition, the showers in the bathhouse on our loop cost $.25 per 5 min. The one thing that we did enjoy was the new pool, that, during the week we were allowed to use anytime. Overall I would not recommend this campground unless you like the party atmosphere with kids involved. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Mill Run in a Tent Trailer.

Love this campground! Everyone is super friendly and there are activities planned every hour of the day. If you have young kids this is most definitely the place for you! If you are looking for a great camping experience this is it! The pools are great and also heated! They have firetruck rides, wagon rides, picnic basket express rides, you can even sign your kids up to be tucked in by Yogi and Boo Boo. It is very close to Idlewild park and Living Treasures Animal park. Nice large sites on the top also very wooded, you will really feel like you're camping. Can't say enough about this campground! It is a little hilly though so bring your walking shoes. All in all great family park, can't wait to go back! We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Mill Run in a Travel Trailer.

This was a very nice park. Lots to do for the kids. Very nice size pool for all kids. The pricing of the campground is very pricey and does not match the included things. Everything else extra. You had to pay and was not cheap. This did have nice updated showers and clean bathrooms. Workers were nice and polite, just need to fit everything into that high price stay. I would camp again if they added more activities in the price. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Mill Run in a Tent Trailer.

It is a great campground near many activities and attractions in the Laurel Highlands. We needed someplace to stay last minute. Were told we could be accommodated in our 43' motorhome. NOT! This campground is not set up to accommodate larger RV's without doing some major maneuvering to get in and out. The employees are nice, at check in we were escorted to our site, nice again. However, the large sites in the somewhat open area (on the hill) are not laid out well at all if trying to negotiate in a big rig. It took us a couple times backing up and wiggling around to get settled. Once in, could not level with our air jacks. We were by far the biggest thing in the park; even the owner's son (?) said we were the biggest he had seen there, not very comforting. On the bright side, the place is a mecca for families with tons of activities and things going on without ever having to leave the CG. Pools, slides, hourly activities, games, arts and crafts. You name it, they did it. If we had been with small children it would have been perfect! I can highly recommend for that, just not with a big RV. Going out of the campground we had to go the way we came in. There was no way to make the turns required to go out the actual exit. Luckily, we did not meet an other campers on the way in, so it was all good. I loved this place just for the excitement and energy it had, but not for a larger RV. Oh, and one note about the bridge discussed in a previous post. Yes, there is definitely a bridge you must cross just before the campground. The sign clearly is marked 12' 7". We had called ahead to discuss with the CG and they said no problems. We went through actually with me ahead in the tow watching DH in the RV to make sure it was ok as he (very slowly) made his was across. There were no problems at all. We need 13' 3" clearance and we had probably 6 - 8" to spare. Good thing, because I can't imagine how we would have gotten turned around on that road! Overall, great park, great location, but busy, busy, busy and not for the larger RV's unless you want to work at it. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Mill Run in a Motorhome.

This in an "OK" campground. I was as impressed as I thought I would be. First of all the campground is on a large hillside, so if you plan on walking with kids, good luck. The campground was clean and there was a lot of activities. We stayed all the way at the top of the hill. It wasn't wooded there and I really liked the sites. The wooded sites were very small. Also there is a lot of poison ivy in the wooded sites. I also seen a lot of kids with lotion on to treat their poison ivy. We stayed during their "Halloween" weekend. It was nice and a lot of fun.

We really didn't like being here on the weekend! It was very crowded, noisy, with golf carts racing around. The sites (we were on top in the pull through section) were very narrow. With our awning and slides extended, we completely filled our site. And our slide was practically touching our neighbors tent set beside their camper! Even though we had a pull through, it was hard to navigate in because of all the vehicles parked at odd angles because they don't fit in the sites. Plus, this is very expensive campground, when we also had to pay for the mini-golf (course on a hillside - that made playing uh, interesting) and waterslides (one was closed and the other was manned by an employee who would only let one person go down at a time until they reached the pool and walked out as we all waited and waited), and even showers!!! Things improved greatly once the crowds left on Sunday and most of the campground was empty. Know in reading this, we aren't "Jellystone type" campers. We do not stay in the campground all day or participate in planned activities. We are out hiking, biking, and whitewater rafting which were all nearby in Ohiopyle State Park and enjoyed very greatly! The state park camping does not accept dogs so that's how we ended up here. Will never return. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Mill Run in a Travel Trailer.
There are sites that accommodate Big Rigs ... BUT, they are not level. We ended up with three 2X6s under our front wheels and leveling jacks to get level. Many smaller motor homes had their front wheel hanging in the air. WiFi is available BUT not in the Big Rig area. Cost is $7.95 per day and you have to go to the main building to get access. Third (and most important) there is a steel girder bridge on Highway 381 that you MUST cross if you approach the campground from the north (Penn Turnpike). The stated clearance on the bridge is 12' 7". My motor home is supposedly 12' 6" tall. I held my breath and went for it. Made it across without incident but would NEVER try it again. If your RV is taller than 12' 6", I would NOT go to this campground via Highway 381 South. All in all, a good campground, lots of stuff for the kids ... but outdated when it comes to handling modern Big Rigs. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Mill Run in a Motorhome.
If you are looking for a relaxing park, this isn't it. Lots of activity all day and evening long. A lot of the activity is campground driven, but this is billed as a destination park so there has to be a lot going on in the park. The shower facilities are showing their age. I think they are letting some of the maintenance go, and are planning on the main facilities becoming the new ones under construction on top of the hill. All of the staff we interacted with were VERY friendly. Summary: Pros - A lot of activities going on all day. Friendly staff. Good location to see area attractions. Seem to enforce quiet hours. Cons - A lot of activities going on all day. Some sites are on the small side. Shower facilities need work. On the expensive side if you are just using it as a base to see the area. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Mill Run in a Tent Trailer.
Stay here every Memorial Day. This year we had 6 sites total so that our family and friends could be together. Manager and her staff our absolutely wonderful. Great people, great place! We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Mill Run in a Travel Trailer.

We went up for the trick or treat weekend, our friends have a 38' 5er and we were parked right next to them as requested, we had an end of the row lot which was a nice view for the kids. Golf carts were 60 for 24 hours, which I thought was outrageous, but other than that I can't complain. Water attractions were closed due to the time of year we went up, but that is to be expected. Very hilly, don't plan on power wheels or bicycles. Staff was friendly enough, and accommodating. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Mill Run in a Tent Trailer.

Very nice owners. This is a very family friendly campground with many activities for the kids. There are two separate swimming pools, a small fishing pond, an 18-hole miniature gold course, a water slide and many other activities and adventures for children. In October, most of the sites in the park are decorated with Halloween decorations. And you can take a "hay ride" through the campground to see all the decorations that campers have put up. One of the advantages of the park is its proximity to Ohiopyle State Park and the Frank Lloyd Wright houses Falling water (only 4 miles away) and Kentuck Knob. There are also a couple of National Parks within an hour's drive as well as a cave tour off of Highway 40. Also nearby are two ski resorts: Seven Springs and Hidden Valley if visiting during the winter. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Mill Run in a Motorhome.
