Jellystone Quarryville, PA

Hello, We spent ten days at Jelly stone in Quarryville PA. It is a really nice campground. When we first got there, they do something a little different. They check your name at the entrance and they escort you strait to your site. You get all setup then you go to the ranger station to check in. The campground water park and pool were clean and fun. They had many activities planned every day we were there. They had a nice playground, pedal cars, mini golf, fishing pond and a cool bounce pillow. They have many sites from shaded under trees to full sun. Something to accommodate what anyone would want. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and the campground was super clean and maintained. The water park can get a bit busy so go up early to get a spot. I would recommend this resort highly. It has a very high turnover rate we saw campers coming and going all the time. We were in site PT1 red carpet. It was a bit sunny but was a nice level concrete pad. There were thing to do in the area also was a bit worried about that , but there are some great museums near by like the toy train etc. Really COOL.

we were there all last week. we originally had sites 127/128 with my sister and her family, but we asked to switch to a less busy location. we ended up going to the back of the park jt 18/18a. these are buddy sites. my sister had her 5th wheel backed in and then i backed my tt in. sites were very spacious and quiet. we will be back again but for a 6 hr drive this will be an every other year adventure.

We were there for a week in July. It is one of our favorite campgrounds. We took one day off from the park's activities to take the kids to Dutch Wonderland, the Strasburg RR, Train Museum and the Choo Choo Barn. We also picked up some fresh Amish foods to cook at the campfire. We're going back for Halloween!

Heading there in August

I appreciate the review DD. We are heading there for three days in August. That is our half way stop on the way home from Myrtle Beach. Good to know we picked a winner.

It is funny we stumbled on this one almost by mistake... I have never even looked at a Jellystone because they looked so Hokey with the Yogi Bear theme. But the more research I have done the more it seems that we may have been missing out on a great series of camp grounds.

Yea you are missing out staying at Jelly stones. They are really nice campgrounds. The only thing bad is my son just turned six. He did not know who Yogi Bear was. The cartoon is not on TV like he used to be and its ashame . I showed him on you tube and he loved it.

It's a great place. We have been going there even before we bought a camper. We stayed in cabins before pulling the trigger on a camper last year. I'd say we started going there about 4 years ago... Always a good, clean and fun time...

The Jellystone in Hagerstown Maryland is very good. After reading these reviews I am sure we will try the one in Quarryville next.

We've done multiple trips to the Hagerstown, Quarryville and Luray Jellystones. They are all very good.
