The reviews that describe this as an amusement park with a campground are spot on. The directions are good and bring you to the office. To left is mini golf, pool, water park, etc. Access is paved, but interior roads are dirt and gravel and sites are gravel (other than premium sites which give you a paved site and a fireplace). We needed blocks under our jacks since the sites are not level. It rained and the area around the sites turned to mud. The pedestals have a cable port, but there is no cable service in the park. (But the ads indicate cable service.) Satellite service is impossible due to trees. You can get over the air TV from Chicago and Milwaukee. Lots of places to walk dogs and they have an off leash dog park. Dark at night - no lights. The place is clean with no litter. If you call, you will likely not get an answer. I stood at the desk quite a while, and the phone never stopped ringing. We also called the office from the campsite, and only got an answer after about 10 minutes. If you want to make a reservation, email them and have them call you back. Note that once you say "okay" they bill your card for the entire amount. Refunds are only given more than 20 days out, otherwise you are out the entire amount. They have a strict 4pm check in time. You can check their web site to see if your site is empty and if so check in as early at 1 pm (for a $10 fee). Check out is 2 pm. When you check in you will get 2 pages of rules. I can only imagine this place in the summer with the kids out of school. Yikes. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Motorhome.
We've been staying at this campground for years and will continue for years to come. If you have kids, this is the place to camp. Some sites are narrow but most are pretty level. Hookups are updated and close to pads. PLENTY for the kids to do, along with scheduled activities on weekends. The staff is friendly and the owners are great! They have activities for kids ages 2 to 18 and even have adult activities! A fun place to be. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Travel Trailer.
This park is all about making money. We checked in before 4:00 pm and they charged us $10 extra for early check in. We went to the office to tell them the trash from the previous site renter's trash was still on the site some in a bag some not. If you use firewood from outside the park they fine you $200. If you are caught without your wrist bracelet they kick you out. We won't come back here again. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Motorhome.
This is a theme park surrounded by a large campground. Cabins to tents. It's fantastic for kids under the age of 14, there are kids and families all over the place. And they do add a premium for their services and are a bit stringent with rules and regulations. But there really is a lot of stuff going on. We camped here with no kids and still didn't mind paying the premium. My complaint would be is that they are deep in the woods and do not provide cable TV. This is a real problem with me. With what campgrounds like this charge today they should spend the money for cable. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Motorhome.
This campground is essentially a theme park, and we unfortunately hit 'Christmas in July', but that wasn't the fault of the campground, so not the reason for poor rating from us. Check in was confusing - we got different information than our traveling partners. We got no receipt, had to ask for one. Charge for the site was $51 - but then there was a head charge of $7 per person per night! Obviously this was for use of the amenities like the water slide, but we would have been better served had those amenities been charged per use. At $51 this was already an expensive campground, that advertised Wi-Fi, but had in fact almost no access to the internet. Posted booster sites didn't always even exist, and our only option was to walk the length of the campground (and it's huge) to a pavilion with limited plugs. Staff were pleasant enough, but not knowledgeable for the most part about internet. The site itself was scruffy, certainly not expected at the prices charged. Would NOT recommend this as a peaceful, quiet place to stay - but if you have a young family, and lots of bucks, you'd probably enjoy it! We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed over memorial weekend. Changes have been made to pricing and Incorporated some events just need to show wrist band for free. There is one section that that we we were in that does not pick up Wi-Fi if that is what you are looking for. We did not rent a cart but choose to walk which is convenient. We will go back. Very dog friendly. Staff was great and if they did not know the answer called someone. We are going back for a full week in July to a pull through for bettor reception and Wi-Fi.

We camped here for three nights. Two rows of pull through sites were available due to the fact that the campground does not open until mid-May. If we were in the area we would stay again. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great park if you have children. There is a lot for them to do and well taken care of. The park itself is all in the trees and some sites weren't very level and somewhat close. The site we had required two levelers to get level although the one next to us didn't require any. The seasonals were well kept and nice. We didn't use the Wi-Fi but the TV antenna brought in good stations. We used it as a base to visit Milwaukee and the surrounding area. We would return.

This is a resort destination RV Park for families. There is no way to get out of the facility charge which of course adds to the daily rate. There are no discounts for Passport or Good Sam memberships. The basic sites are not worth the rate – narrow and not level. So if you want the pool, mini-golf, etc, etc, etc, - OK but for an overnight it is way overpriced! We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park. Big rig easy. Two premium sites 70+ ft long with concrete patio. Close to the Hwy (94). No dog park! Busy and crowded! 30 minute ride to the Harley Museum! We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Motorhome.
If you do not have kids, do not stay at this park. The base rate is reasonable but you will pay a $6 per day amenity fee per person for the first three days of your stay; for us that tacked on an additional $18 daily. Campers also must wear a wristband (even adults) to prove they are registered guests. Any visitor staying longer than 20 minutes will incur a $10 visitor fee - no exceptions. Clean? Yes. Quiet? Yes, given the number of people there on a weekend. Office staff was courteous but in a "business-like" way. Seasonal units very well maintained. There are lots of things for kids to do and organized activities. We were in a back-in site that was not terribly large, not very level, and suffered from poor Wi-Fi reception. This is a nice park in many respects but not a good value for the money. We will not return. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Travel Trailer.
My family has been going to Yogi Bear campsites for four years. We have been to the Dells twice, Amboy once and Calendonia twice. So far Calendonia has been great! We have gone for the Halloween festivities in October and now this time in July. It was great. Sites are nice, bathrooms are clean, lots of entertainment for the kids and a great staff. We go with 4 families and everyone was satisfied and we will go back in October and next summer. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Tent.
Overall on a busy 4th of July weekend the campground did a good job. But to show up and not have our grass cut, and a TON of mosquitoes. We were in the pull through section, site was semi level and big enough for all our outdoor swag. Daughter had a good time with Yogi and friends, the pool was VERY crowded, but to be expected on a hot holiday weekend. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is extremely nice, well taken care of and well shaded. The spots are wide, and mostly level. This is a family park, and if you like crowds the weekends are perfect for you. I would recommend that for any family traveling to the Chicago / Milwaukee area this is the place to stay. Our kids enjoyed the pool with water slides, the cartoons on the big screen, seeing the characters, etc. The park has a lot to offer to kids and families, however, there are a few drawbacks. First, they have cable on the pedestals, but do not offer any cable TV, and you can not get satellite due to trees, but you get some over the air stations. The other main drawback is the weekends, we went into Chicago Friday morning, upon our return to the park it was PACKED nearly full, and every single person was at the pool area. You can not check out on Saturdays as they do not allow it, and Saturday mornings the pool opens at 10AM and there is a line to get in. The pool was absolutely packed full with people to the point you had to stand in one place. Overall a very very nice park for families, but be aware of the weekend crowds. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Motorhome.
The nightly rate is one thing, the amenity fee is another $24 for a family of 4. The pool is great for kids, but once the kids get older they'll be looking for more. Plenty of activities for kids. Our pull-thru site could use some gravel and grading as our sewer hook-up was about 1 1/2ft higher than the ground around it making the tank dumping a bit challenging. Nice jumping pillow and nice new playground mid park for little ones. We'll stay here again as it's the only decent full service park between Milwaukee and Chicago.
