“Excellent place to camp!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Wonderful place to camp. Would recommend to anyone. We go to Jellystone at least once a month during the spring and summer and they have something going on at all times for everyone in the family. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Thanks for letting everyone know that our staff is the friendliest staff ever!! Our entire staff works very hard and does their best to be kind, courteous and helpful and they appreciate the compliment. Rachael Stine, our manager, has been with the park for several years and is truly "hands on" and very involved. She is always at the park to make sure our guests are happy and having a wonderful time!

Happy Camping!

Great to hear that you have been camping with us for 3 years and hope you will be camping with us for many more!! Our recreation staff has a great time with everyone and really enjoys getting to know the children better. They do a great job building healthy relationships with returning children.

We stay at Yogi a couple times a year. This year our first visit was Easter weekend. We camp in RV's and had several campers in the party and as always had an excellent time. The activities for the grandchildren are exceptional. Everyone is so nice and really makes it special for the kids. Our next, trip is scheduled to celebrate granddaughters 6th birthday.

Thanks for your kind words on Trip Advisor. Jellystone Park is all about families and having fun together! In fact, many of our guests are grandparents camping with their grandchildren! There are so many grandchildren who have very found memories of camping with their grandparents at Jellystone Park. In fact, families with multi generations are camping with us very often. Family time goes by fast and is so precious. It is wonderful to see children with their parents and also their grandparents all camping together!

Hoping to provide you with more family fun this season!

I was very impressed with the campground. They have something to do for little kids, teenagers, and adults. The site was easy to get into, stay if there was very helpful and friendly. Even though the river was up that day I could see if be a great place to go kayaking. We will be staying there again.

Thanks for reviewing us!! We are glad you enjoyed your stay!

The James River has provided much fun and enjoyment to our camping guests. It is a wonderful river to paddle or float. Canoe and tube rentals are offered or you may bring your own. Campers enjoy our shuttle service which takes you and your canoe or tube 8 miles up river and you spend the rest of the afternoon canoeing, kayaking or tubing the James River back to the campground. Please visit our website at for more info on our Shuttle Service and rental program.

We look forward to having you at the park again!

Sincerely,

We absolutely love this park! Rates are higher which limits our stays (we would stay every weekend). There is something for everyone here! Staff is wonderful, facilities are clean, snack bar has a lot of options and store is well stocked!

Thanks for taking the time to share your feelings on Trip Advisor. We are glad you found the facilities clean and the staff wonderful. We have added more variety and items to both the store and snack bar this season and our campers seem to love it! We do our best to provide a good value for the rates charged. Please keep in mind that our rates vary throughout the season and rates are lower mid week than weekends. During many of our discounted periods you will still find many of the same great activities and amenities!! Please visit our website for our rate schedule. Our reservationists are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding activities and amenities during each discounted season.

Happy Camping!

We rented cabin L136 recently. We were floored by how squeaky clean it was. I think L136 and those 4 other cabins around it are brand new--they certainly looked it. It was well-stocked and had everything we needed except pillows--none! Bring your own.

The cabin backed up to a little stream, but there was a busy thru-way that leads to the fishing pond right in front of the cabin, and it is next to a busy road--all vehicles travel within 50 yards of the cabin to get to the the main entrance/check-in area. That said, it was more car/truck/RV/golf truck traffic and noise than we experience in our home on a cul-de-sac, so that was not great. We also could hear clearly the activity from the nearby racetrack on Fri & Sat night. Not a big deal, but not exactly peaceful.

The location was great for walking over to the children's activities. Super close--a short stroll. Our neighbors all had golf carts to get there and back. Personally I like to walk, and I think it's good for the kids to walk. To each his own.

There were tons of activities for our very small kids. The jumping pillow was a huge hit, and there are several playgrounds. We did a staff supervised craft, about 4 holes of mini-golf, and some fishing. They had a mini-carnival going on with face-painting, games with prizes, etc.

The camping spots down by the river are gorgeous, and the bathhouses looked as clean as could be. Everything seems pretty well taken care of. I've seen other complaints that facilities are in bad shape--I don't know what people are expecting, but this is a rustic campground, not a Hilton. Everything was safe, and is surrounded by beautiful mountains and the lovely James River. Keep a realistic perspective and you will not be disappointed. Staff and other campers were very friendly. Everyone seemed very family-oriented.

This is not back-to-nature camping. It's not private, or quiet. But, it was never super loud (no loud music or parties around us), and the 10pm quiet rule was in full effect.

If you want to go somewhere cars/trucks/golf carts are not whizzing by every 60 seconds all day, Jellystone is not your spot. If your goal is to have some quality family time with very young toddlers that need to be entertained most of the day and eat dirt if you're not watching, try it out.

Room Tip: L141 faces the fishing pond, and has no neighbors. It is private at night but during the day you'...

Thanks for your realistic and thorough review of our park. The large deluxe cabins are very nice and a good value and conveniently located. There are also cabins available which are more remote yet still close enough to walk to the activities and fun! Please do not hesitate to request a specific cabin or area for your next visit. Our housekeepers try very hard to keep the cabins and the restrooms very clean for all our guests. We will be sure to let them know you complimented them on their hard work:)

Hope to see you back at Natural Bridge again!
