Do you know how some parks you just don't get a good vibe from? This is one for us. The whole dog shot records that took up more than 45 min while at the gate was not needed. We had all our dogs paperwork but they didn't seem to know what the heck they were doing.
They got our site wrong and put someone else in our site...they found an open site for us but had to spend another 45 min waiting on everyone to sort that out.
There are tons of tent campers here...they walk through your campsite like you are having a yard sale. It's sad really.
They are TONS of RV parks in this area. Avoid this one. They nickel and dime you to death at this park and they are rude.
We'll never return here. We camped at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Hill Country in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
Don't put anything out under your awning you don't want taken.

We have been to this Jellystone several times. All our experiences have been very good! They have good activities for kids of all ages. Love the pancake breakfast they host often. It’s nice to give me a break cooking! This last Thanksgiving we also were at Jellystone. It was great fun at the group dinner!! The only thing that would improve this campground is some updates in the restrooms. They are very clean, but a little on the dated side. Very friendly helpful staff! We are not Winter Texans, but they had a very fun group staying there the last time we went. We will return again!! We camped at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Hill Country in a Motorhome.

Had a great time here this weekend. Park was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. Plenty of activities for kids, great scenery in the hill country. Many Yogi parks are expensive to begin with and then nickle and dime you for everything, but I think this place was fairly priced and you get a lot of bang for your buck. Restrooms were clean and well taken care of. RV Parking spots were a little to cozy. Our RV neighbor's fire pit smoke kind of bombarded our RV but all was well. Sites were pretty level, hookups clean, and easy to use. Wi-Fi was pretty well useless. Got a signal but could not load any webpages.

Stayed here 3 nights, because third night was free. Park staff friendly and helpful with area attractions. If you are going to float down the river, they will call a tube company to pick you up at the park and drop you back off. You don't have to worry about where to park. The park has a lot of trees, so good shade. The sites we stayed at was gravel, but we were able to level up our 40 footer without any problems. We will stay here again.

Rate reflected a club discount and a "buy 4 stay 5 nights" rate. The Good: Only about a mile to the nearest food store and ACE Hardware which is good. About 2 miles to Canyon Lake. Thirteen miles to New Braunsfel. Eight hundred feet from the Guadalupe River - excellent tubing and kayaking. Our site had lots of shade. The staff was great. Check in fast and easy. Good gift store, if you need any supplies. Basketball court, volleyball court, laser tag and frisbee golf - if you are interested. Cable TV worked fine. Propane refill on location. The Bad: The sites are just tired and old – some had fire rings – some didn’t – some were on a semi flat – some were rough. Our site was OK - but most of the sites seemed pretty small and cramp. I was sort of on a turn, so had plenty of space to my left and right, but the other five trailers after me was literally close enough to touch each other. None of the sites are paved - all are gravel. Most sites are not level, so bring plenty of leveling blocks. The pool is small - both the indoor and outdoor pool are small. I believe that its closer to the size of a residential pool then a location that draws hundreds of kids in. The sites are old - tired. The structures seem to be in neglect - until something actually breaks and then they fix it. Water pressure was low. Useable - but low. Wireless was hit and miss - sometimes you had good speeds - but mostly it was slow and difficult to connect to. Probably won’t come back here. Once again – great staff – just cramped, tired spaces. We also stayed at the Jellystone in Fredericksburg, which we gave a 10. We camped at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Hill Country in a Fifth Wheel.

Had high expectations for this place. Our kids did enjoy the indoor pool and pedal cars. The jump pad was always over full with kids pushing and throwing sand on each other. The site was unlevel on chalice with no trees. There were many kids running unsupervised all over the campground at all hours. People kept walking through our site. One tried to open the door, and another ran by, knocked and ran off. We were in a 35 ft RV and in the big rig area. Our experience might have been better in another area of he campground. The sites are very close together. Camp is in a central location to visit sites in the area. We camped at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Hill Country in a Fifth Wheel.
This campsite is just down the street from our house. This was our second trip to Yogi Bear and they have made wonderful improvements to the outdoor pool area since our last trip. The pool is very nice and the children the zero entry and 3 foot pool area. The kids had a great time playing in the game room, jumpy pillow and playground. The park has two hay-rides which everyone enjoyed. The RV sites where very nice and shaded. We will be coming back to camp again soon!

This place is fantastic. The amenities are off the chart, the campground is beautiful and tranquil, and the staff is the friendliest we have encountered anywhere. First, the setting. It is in the hill country of Texas, away from any hustle and bustle, in a very wooded setting with a couple of mid-sized creeks winding their way through everything. Plenty of great space to ride bikes, walk, and relax. Nice metal fire rings available for each site. The amenities: heated pool open year-round, another beautiful outdoor pool open in the warmer seasons, a video game room, a big mess hall for watching movies and having potlucks, a gem mining machine for the kids, a fully stocked camp store on site, a large jumping pillow for the kids (and adults too), 4 different laundry facilities, and free Wi-Fi that *actually works*. Nearby, there are nice hiking trails and some beautiful sites, such as Canyon Lake Dam. When we arrived late at night, one of the workers who was off his shift asked us if we knew where to go based on the late check in info I had received over the phone. When I hesitated, he said, "I'll be glad to lead you there. Just follow me." he turned out to be the owner. The whole staff is just that pleasant and friendly. In the winter, there is a group of "winter Texans" who stay there. These folks were also very friendly and helpful. In the warmer months, the park is near and part of all the river tubing that goes on in the area. Our rate reflects a monthly rate of $435 for 29 days in February. We will be going back.

Stayed here several times and have always had fun. The grand kids join us and have a ball. Sites are of a nice size and reasonably level. Staff are very friendly and helpful. We gave it an 8 because it is sometimes difficult to get the site we request, though they try hard to accommodate us. They are pet friendly. This is a great place for kids to learn about the fun of camping. They sometimes have weekend pancake breakfasts, weekend hayrides which the kids and adults all enjoy. They also have arts and crafts. Their website lists most of the available activities. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Rafting/tubing and Canyon Lake are a short ride away for lots of summer fun. Much quieter off season. Indoor and outdoor pools and big outdoor jumping/trampoline at no extra charge. We camped at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Hill Country in a Motorhome.

Nice!...Great staff on site from phone reservation to escort to site to ladies behind the store counter. Clean sparkling pools for kids, hay ride, movie night. Movie night is geared for adults and children, not just a plain rated G movie. So its nice to sit there in the theater with your kids. My back in site had plenty of shade, with picnic table..just an excellent time for us and the kids. We camped at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Hill Country in a Travel Trailer.
One of the best parks in Texas. Excellent sites that had plenty of room and trees. Friendly and accommodating workers ("Rangers"). Quiet hours were observed by all. Family, kid and even pet friendly. Two nice pools. Bathrooms were large, with AC and clean. Staff worked hard to find availability on a very busy weekend. The jumping pillow is unique and a big hit with the kids. The pedal cars was a big hit also. If you want to play games (horseshoes, basketball or volleyball), bring your own equipment. We camped at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Hill Country in a Tent Trailer.
We loved this campground! The staff was friendly and helpful! Moreover, the activity personnel took the time to get to know each young camper's name. This really personalized the events and helped the children to get to know each other. My 11 y.o. participated in most activities and had a blast. My 13 y.o. was not as interested in some of the activities, but managed to find plenty of other fun things to do. The campsites were nice and well kept. It didn't really matter, however, as we spent so little time there! This is not a 'singles' campground, but I highly recommend it for families! We will be back next year for another week! We camped at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Hill Country in a Motorhome.
My kids thoroughly enjoyed the pools, movie nights, hay rides, balloon bounce. Rock pad sites are not level and may need some repacking soon. It is most noticeable if you are pulling in with a 30ft and above trailer. Staff is a little rough around the edges, but all in all we enjoyed our weekend. County was under a fire ban and we showed up without a bbq pit with lid. Office was kind enough to loan us one for the weekend.

We live 5 hours away and this is our most visited RV Park. Very family friendly and has lots of activities for the kids. The owners are great people and we enjoy seeing them every year. Plenty of shade for those hot Texas summers. For families with big rigs, there are plenty of oversized sites available. We camped at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Hill Country in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for the 4th of July weekend. Reserved four nights, received 5th free. We were in the "B" section, but still had a good site. The numbering was a little confusing. Even though the weather was not very good for camping, the park had excellent activities planned. The facilities were clean and good shape. Two pools, one indoors. Our entire family (16) was in attendance for several hours one day and we had 4 grandsons under 7 who had good a time. This park would be considered a "resort." We would stay here again, especially with children. We camped at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Hill Country in a Travel Trailer.
