This is our third time here. I have noticed a vast improvement in the staff since the first two times. Before the staff was not very friendly, but this time they are nice and helpful.
This sites are nice, level and spacious enough, but not huge.
The thing is that this is the only place around here! We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in a Motorhome.

Everything explained at check-in. Extra for cable. Level site. Easy in/out. Needed propane while there. Was promptly taken care of with responsible price. Bathroom and showers were very clean. Ground clean. Only negative - train noise during the night from RR behind campground. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots of things to do for kids. Not much to do in the area.

We stayed here twice, once on our way South and again on our way North on the same trip. We arrived on a rainy night and found the pole with our utilities in the middle of a small pond of water. Campground staff graciously allowed us to relocate. The sites for transient guests are level, gravel, pull-through and full service. It takes a little while to get connected to the internet, and the connection is not strong. The trains mentioned in other posts are present, but we did not find them that disruptive. That said, it is very conveniently located off of I-95. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in a Motorhome.

The trains are very frequent and run 24 hours a day sounding like they are right in the campground. We were given an open spot which worked with our satellite dish. It was a side by side site but no one was next to us during our stay and the RV on the other side was a long ways away. The site was long and gravel but very rutted requiring us to go up on boards to level even with our hydraulic leveling system. We were there during the week and later in October so the park was very quiet but they were preparing for Halloween weekend activities as we were leaving. We arrived after the 1 PM check-in time and no one was in the office but when I called the park someone came right away. The park worked for our needs but it is almost an hour's drive to Petersburg and there little around. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed on their Halloween celebration weekend and had a great time. The level pull-through spot made it easy to setup in the dark since we arrived late. My son loved all of the festive activities. The staff was great to deal with. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Big Rigs stay clear. We couldn't keep power. For what you get they are overpriced. I wasn't told about cable when I checked in but found a cable connection. I called the office and they said that would be $2.00 more dollars. I don't like getting nickel and dimed. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is all about expectations. If you're looking for a 'kid-mania' Jellystone park like Luray, this is NOT it. We feel it's a bit on the expensive side for what we got. With that said, it's a well maintained park but it's an older park. It looks like it's caught in a late 60's early 70's time warp. Kind of a throw back but a very nice throwback. There are quite a few permanent residents that have the best spots in the woods and they put the short-term visitors in the open sunny spots. The pool is great but the playground is dated. They have a large bounce pad for an extra charge although they waived the charge for us.. The Mini-golf is an extra charge as well. The wi-fi is terrible. As others have commented, the worst part is the trains. They come at all hours of day and night. There was one at 3:15AM blowing it's horn. Overall a nice quiet park but not the typical Jellystone that we've seen before...and for some that's not a bad thing. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here as a one night rest stop, the pull-thru site was wide, 30 amp power, table fire ring etc. We used the laundry room, was very nice, this is a park for family's with kids, the site was not very level, we had to stack 2 boards under one side, the big complaint is starting at 5:30 am the trains start blowing there horns, the tracks are very close, this goes on every 45 minutes up to about 10 pm, a $40 a night park after Sam's discount with that noise is a problem, a $22 park you expect that, next time we will travel farther to another park We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Older but clean park. We camped here overnight; overnighters were put in a sunny area. Wooded sites seemed to be available for others. Pool and mini-golf available. Good as an overnight stop. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in a Motorhome.

This was a nice park. It was very convenient off the I-95. Coming in late was easy. The sites were easy to access and there were lots of trees around for scenery. Loved the crisp Fall air and the crackle of leaves under my feet first thing in the morning! The bathrooms were clean. The only hiccup with the shower was something with the valve - needed to have 2 showers running in order to get hot water. I wish I had known that before I showered that morning! There is Wi-Fi, but I found it totally impossible to use. Slow, and extra logins were a big pain to get through. Overall, it was good value and we would stay here again.

Campground is nice and clean. The shaded pull through sites (30/50 amp) will take two or more sewer hoses to reach. The facilities are really clean, staff is friendly, activities for the children were great. Yogi Bear was present. No golf carts allowed was a blessing!! Overall, the campground was a typical Yogi Bear facility, charge extra for everything. Paying extra for children is really too much. Before long, I am sure they will start charging extra to use the bath houses. The train does come by, but it is at a distance and didn't pay much attention to it. We probably would look around for another place to stay if in the area, that didn't charge extra for everything. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our second visit to this campground. We stayed here for the long 4th of July weekend in a 50/30 amp pull-thru site number 10. The pull-through sites have ample space with shade on this side of the campground. The right-hand side of the campground has no shade and more for one night stays. They've added a 9-hole mini golf course which was nice and it's $2 a person. Yes ... The campground is near two different train routes and their schedules seem like they come through every hour with their horns blowing. You get somewhat use to the train noise but if you don't like that ... then it will get on your nerves. Things that I don't like: They charge per day for each child and for cable. It's $2 per day for cable per day and ages 3-11 is $2 per day and goes up to $4 a day for 12 and older. The rate covers two adults only!

This RV park is okay for an overnight stay and is average in ambience. Good Wi-Fi and nice staff. Sites were level. Only downside was the noise from nearby train and whistle. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in a Motorhome.
