“NEW OWNERS know how to please!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

The new owners have really stepped up to the plate. The bathrooms are newly painted and clean. The pool is beautiful, clear blue to the bottom. The kids love it. Kid friendly with theme weekends every weekend. The Owners even help to accomodate those children that are not here on weekends and at special request may bring out Yogi for a Wagon ride or a photo op. My kids love it here and I love it here.
As new owners they are learning but you can see they strive to go above and beyond the norm to make everyones experience wonderful. I can see many more years of camping here.

Room Tip: We have a camper but they also have cabins, camper rentals, and a Yurt!

As new owners we are learning everyday!! Our activities and special events happen on the weekends right now but this will be expanded to week days as the park grows. During the week, Yogi often hides on us but there is nothing like the smell of a good pic-a-nic basket to draw him out of his favorite hiding places!!! This being said, Yogi is always happy to come out for a wagon ride or photo opportunity during the week as requested.

Happy Camping,

I have been camping here for three years and the new owners have taken over where old owner left off. Lots of activities for all, especially the kids. The campground is clean, the staff is friendly and helpful and we are very happy with our experience. The campers follow the campground rules, no dogs running loose, no excessive noise and the kids are at their sites in the evening. The owner and staff are always available if we have a question or need help and the pool is beautiful and very clean. As a first year campground owner I would say they are doing fantastic! We have been seasonal campers for many, many years and I rate this experience right up at the top.

The response from our seasonal campers has been terrific. It is important to my wife and I that the park is clean, safe, quiet and full of fun things to do!! We have had to learn quickly since we purchased the park just 5 days prior to opening. While we are sure a few mistakes have been made, we are committed to improving the park year to year.

Looking forward to the future!

Sincerely,

Our family of 5 from ohio, came to Maine for vacation. We originally had reservations at the whitewater rafting outfit, however it was definately NOT somewhere we wanted to spend a week!! So after driving around for several more hours (didn't have phone service north of Madison) we found this place.
All I can say is the people here and this campground saved our vacation!!!
Everyone was great! Everyone! Jeff, his wife, Dan, Paul, Libby and I am sure I am missing people's names!
Jeff got us a beautiful site and even accommodated us thru the 4th of July! When they were extremely busy. Paul was amazingly offering up fishing holes for my husband (no one gets off their fishing spots in ohio!), unfortunately he never got to fish cause we were so busy with everything else!
My son lost his cell phone during the dj party Friday night AND SOMEONE ACTUALLY TURNED IT IN TO THE OFFICE!
I am amazed by the friendliness and helpfulness of people in Maine. You do not find this around us in ohio.
I am very grateful to the people at this campground. Our vacation was almost a disaster but thanks to them, we all had a great time in Maine.
Thank you!!

We have been camping here for three years, and we have seen more improvements thus far in 2014 than we saw in all of the previous years. The new owners are very ambitious and have set out to make this the best camping experience in the area. They are well on there way to achieving that in their first year. The entire campground, bathrooms, and pool is cleaner than it has ever been (picture attached), every weekend there is a special theme, with kids activities and games. It is exciting to see the campground full of people and energy. If you haven't been here in 2014 then you need to give this place a try to see all of the improvements that have been made.

Thanks for letting other travelers know about the improvements to the park for 2014. While we are new to the campground business we are learning quickly and it has been alot of fun getting to know our returning campers. It is very rewarding to learn from all of you that the park has never looked better! We promise to continue the hard work and efforts to make Jellystone Park in Madison the #1 camping resort destination in Maine!!

I have been coming here for five years and this is the first year that I can say there has been improvement. Its under new ownership and they are out to make this the campground to stay at for you and your family. Activities are plentiful for all. Nice job to the new owners and I hope more fellow campers will come and check it out. There is nothing better than a full campground and the atmosphere and buzz that it produces.

Thanks for letting other travelers know about the improvements you have seen thus far at our park. We took ownership of the property just 5 days before opening and it has been a bit hectic to get the park opened and improvements made for this season. Both Libby & I intend to improve the park year to year, bring back the fun and friendly family atmosphere and offer activities and special events on the weekends! Hope to welcome new families and old friends to the park this season and many more to come!!

This place is now under new ownership due to the untimely passing of the previous owner.
This is a hidden Gem in Central Maine with tons of family friendly activities for all ages. the new owners are energetic and eager to please. while they have only been at the helm for a few weeks the improvements are happening every day. the mission statement seems to bring back the family atmosphere and promote fun for everyone.
