Yogi Bear's Jellystone Parks

Any one camp at any of these?

Pro's/Con's?

Was it worth the money ?

We've stayed at 2 here in TX...Fredericksburg & Burleson. They were ok...the kids had a good time with all the activities...but we've never been back to either of them...I did think they were a little over priced. That's my $.02...

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Parks

We go to one that’s close to us once or twice a year. If you have kids, I think it is worth it. The one by us has big water slides, kiddie slides, lazy river, 2 pools, mini golf, fishing pond, and other activities for the family. They have a pretty nicely stocked camp store so if you run short on adult beverages, you can buy it there instead of leaving the park.

Edit: the park has gotten a little more expensive than it used to be when we first started going 4-5 years ago

I went to a Jellystone Park years back near Syracuse NY for a few days. It was a nice campground, except the whole time there I felt like I was in Stalag 13.

Kinda a funny story. At 4:00AM one morning my beagle woke me up because he had to go pee pee. So I get up, take him outside to walk around the loop and have him do his business. Then all of a sudden this Sgt, Schultz type character sneaks up on me, shines this blinding spotlight and yells “halt!". Apparently there was a dog walk about a quarter mile away for dogs to do their business. It was too late as good old Ozzie already watered a tree.

We’ve never been to one but are taking the 4 and 5 year old grandkids to one in OK next week for 4 days. We’re hoping there are a lot of things to keep them busy as well as getting them started on camping.

This was our 14th year at Jellystone in Cherokee N.C. in the Smoky Mountains. We meet up with six other camping families each Memorial Day and for 10 days each July 4th. We all have prime river spots and the host gives us first pick for the same site every year. I have been on the same site for 13 years now. The host are great and the park has lots of activities for the kids. Problem is since Legacy purchased then the prices have gone up every year. They took our good sams discount away for holidays and this year they said since the 4th was on wed. it was a 10 day holiday from Fri. before the 4th till the Sun. after the fourth. Cost us $70.00 night for 9 nights. Other problem is Legacy won't spend any money for gravel so the roads at bad when it rains. Our site has lost over 10 ft from the river washing it out over the 13 years. In a couple years I'll walk out my door and fall in the river. Our problem is you can't find 7 nice river spots to p/u and move on holiday weeks.

Thank you all for the input.
Just wanted to know if it is worth the high cost.
My DW and I were thinking about taking our 3 kids 16, 15 and 12 there for 4 nights. I see they have a deal stay 3 and get the 4th free?

We stayed at the Madison FL facility a couple of years ago.
The water park, lazy river, slide was fun for grands (and PaPa).
The activities for kids was enjoyable for them.
On the negative side: Price, I thought too high; the sites are TOO close together (I understand why, the closer sites mean more sites which mean more $$ per night); I did not care for the constant Four wheelers and golf carts traversing everywhere and with kids driving them.

My .02 worth. Over all good for kids, but not for MaMa and me.

Quarryville. It's beautiful there with big sites, mulched gardens and stone sites. Very level. We didn't even need to level our camper side-to-side. We're regulars.
