South Haven Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park™ Camp-Resort
Reviewed 31 August 2013

This is a great family campground. Facilities are nice. My in laws had a cabin, it was very clean. They don't let you on your lot or in the cabin early. They told us our lot was full, but when it was 1, and we got our lot we knew it was open the whole time. Same w/ the cabin. Not sure what the big deal is if you want to get on the lot a hour early....Not much shade here either.

We are so glad we found this gem. The owners Susan & Kyle are the best they thought of everything!

We rented a cabin with a hot tub, our unit was spotless just as described on the campground web site. We did not have a bathroom in our unit (which we knew upon renting). But we were so surprised, there are street lights (dim of course) along the street using the bathroom during the midnight times was fine it was only 60 seconds away on flat grounds plus no need for a flashlight!

There were various flat bikes, games, water wars, jumping pillow, battery operated race cars to mention. Plus a huge swimming pool with a nice deck and lounge chairs along with a fantastic playground area for the kids. Great stay! We are coming back next year & renting a larger unit for just myself & husband I am so excited!! The grounds are so well maintained, the staff is so very friendly. I hate to even submit this review as others will start to find out about this terrific getaway. Also, in all honesty if you are a couple seeking a getaway (been on the road as a sales rep despise hotels/ along with bed & breakfasts) I just want to sit by a campfire, swing on a swing on the porch & enjoy the beauty of Michigan. This camp ground is close to Saugatuck, Holland and Grand Haven there is a lot to do!! Loved it!! I used to tent camp never again these cabins are great! Reserve early great location, friendly staff, camp store has everything that you need including fire wood & fire starters prices are very reasonable plus an espresso bar & café who could ask for anything more?

Room Tip: They have a great site map for you to choose lodging depending on your needs & family size

Sadly, we had a terrible experience at this campground! The facilities are very nice, well-kept, and clean. There was a lot for the kids to do. BUT, we will never be back! The way they treat their employees is appalling. If I heard Susan, the owner, speak rudely one more time to her employees we were willing to pick up and leave. Every single encounter that we had (including check-in) with the owners had a rude tone to it and made you feel like you were an inconvenience to them. Example: A simple question about where we should park our second vehicle came with a snarky response.

Almost all of the activities cost money. Therefore, for a family with three children, it is very expensive. After paying $45/night, I find this a little ridiculous.

Definitely, would not feel comfortable recommending this campground to friends and family!

Clean, efficient, family friendly, lots for kids to to here and wished we could have stayed longer. Our cottage had a tv, wifi, separate room with bunks for our boys, bathroom, and dining area with kitchen. We loved it! I would recommend it to others in a heartbeat.

We rented the cabin with the loft and hot tub. My family LOVED it. The area is very clean. The cabin had a tv with cable, microwave and mini fridge. It was nice to unwind in the hot tub after a day full of activities with the kids. Just an FYI the water spout is well water so if you are coming stop and pick up drinking water (.88 cents at walmart down the street)or you can buy some in the general store on site for $2.50. The Campgrounds are fairly new so no mature trees so tenters beware summer months are HOT. No shade. The great thing about this campground is it has everything you need for a great family vacation and is very close to downtown south haven. We will definitely will be coming back in the fall for some Halloween fun can't wait. The best part it is dog friendly. They have a dog fenced in area and thank goodness they are strict with the barking. If you plan on doing some downtown fun ie; jet ski's or south/north beach I would suggest Critter Cuts Dog boarding and Grooming right down the street on the way.

Unfortunately, this was just a one night stop on our road trip, but we will be back again! We stayed in a basic cabin, but it was far from basic with a flat screen tv, fridge, and microwave! It even had it's own swing, picnic table, and fire pit out front. Very comfy mattresses! Our cabin was in an excellent location across from the bathrooms with the forest behind us, just wish we had chosen one closer to the playground to watch the kids play. The pool was large and clean and the restrooms were clean with private shower rooms. We rented a four seater bike to ride around which was great, but it can start to be a bit pricey if you do this AND the jumping pillow multiple times. We had great service, we even got there late and they helped us with getting everything together even though it was after their store hours. Would definitely stay there again, maybe with the private hot tubs next time!

Room Tip: The cabins behind the store are very close to the bathrooms and back up against the forest, but are...

The workers here were incredibly rude!!!!!!! The campground itself was nice and very clean. But that means nothing with terrible service. When I asked to speak to the person in charge about the rudeness, they refused and made excuses.
