There must be new management because many upgrades have been made over the past year which include all new SWE (full hookups) street lighting, and campground markings/numbering. I've been coming here for years now and the people in the office are always pleasant and fellow campers are nice and respectful as well. Great place situated in a great area with lots to do all within an hour's drive. Even camping during a pandemic was peaceful & fun!
As part of the Thousand Trails group, this campground has many amenities. It offers a pool, playground, and activities that include bocce ball, shuffleboard, and horseshoes. We loved our full hookup site minus the neighbors’ weekend ragers. (At least they turned off the music at quiet hours).
The creek that runs by the campground is gorgeous, and my kids had fun finding Crayfish.
The nearby towns are adorable and offer shopping, hiking, farms, and more.
Nice place. Only ever been during mid week and the place is empty which is nice. The general store isn’t always open which can get annoying at times. Bathrooms are clean, campground could use a little more attention to cleanliness but overall not bad. Great access to the beaverkill. It’s perfect for a quick getaway.
Recently, we camped here for a week. We don’t ever post negative reviews like this. The last day, we experienced a violent attack by a very large and aggressive Pit Bull. The Pit Bull did not have a collar or a leash and was accidently let out of the RV to roam free and unsupervised. It immediately ran to our site(4 sites away) and attacked our dog that was tied at the time. The incident was unprovoked. While trying to save our dog, my wife and I were also attacked. The wounds were serious enough to require emergency transport to a hospital for treatment including stitches. All we could think of was what might have happened if our granddaughter had been playing with our dog.
To put it mildly, their existing pet policy is grossly lacking. They never checked what breed of dog or ask to see documentation of shots when we were registering. Yogi Bear Jellystone Park needs to better manage their pet policy to address aggressive dog breeds and ensure the safety of campers. We camped there for seven days and saw multiple sites have more than one large dog, which in many places we’ve camped at would have been banned due to breed type or size. We have RV’ed extensively across the US and have never seen such careless enforcement of a pet policy regarding aggressive dog breeds. Seriously, think about avoiding this park if you have pets or small children.
While looking for a campsite that would play host to our daughter's first camping trip, we stumbled upon this place and managed to snag a reservation last minute. We are tent campers…can't speak to the accommodations for RV/5th-Wheelers or the rentable cabins.
- The farm, playground, beach, and shallow river make it a great, easy entry point for new and younger campers.
- Restrooms were very clean every time we needed them, and they were easy to access from the tent sites.
- It appeared there were additional activities we could have partaken in - kayaks, paddle boards, canoes available for rent onsite - though with how shallow the river was, I would have been pretty nervous to take a tumble out of a kayak or paddle board. Maybe the river is higher at different times of the year and these activities are less dangerous? We saw some people tubing on the river as well, though I think you have to go offsite for those rentals.
- GREAT fishing river, though the riverfront the camp sits on isn't the best in terms of depth or activity. A short drive down the road in either direction will put you in much better locations for angling.
- The downtown area is adorable, well-stocked in terms of stores/restaurants, and only 3 minutes down the road. Plus there is a brewery AND a distillery:)
- The"tent sites" (that's what they call them, but they look just like all of the other RV sites with a giant cement pad and utility hookups) are VERY close together, and there is nothing separating them. If you're looking for quiet seclusion, don't even remotely consider this spot as an option.
- As I mentioned before, the tent sites are not actually built for tents. The ground is worn over and very rocky. If you visit, bring incredibly thick sleeping pads or air mattresses if you want to sleep semi-comfortably.
- The cleanliness of the bathrooms doesn't carry over to the campsites. Ours was littered with garbage, broken glass and fish hooks. SO DANGEROUS! Definitely don't walk around barefoot.
- While they boast about the convenience of the General Store, when we visited (and keep in mind, this is still in the time of COVID) it looked like a bomb had gone off inside. It had virtually nothing of value to offer, and it was closed more often than not. The day we arrived it was closed by 3:30, and the day we left (at noon) it still hadn't opened. The grocery store in town is very close, affordable, MUCH better run, and is open until 10 pm. Give them your business instead.
- While snagging a campsite next to the river is nice in terms of ambiance, it also means that you get to act as the gatekeeper for every other camper trying to get to the beach area. We had strangers strolling straight through the middle of our site throughout the day to get to the beach…not very safe, especially when you have children, and incredibly annoying.
- There isn't any kind of smoking policy (I know, nitpicking here since we're outside, but with the sites so close together, it would have been nice), so we got hit with waves of cigarette smoke from the campers that were 5 sites down from us every time the wind shifted. YUCK!
- While you can't see it, you can hear the traffic on the main highway very clearly. Every time a semi used its air brakes on the long hill, it echoed through the camp. Also, be sure to ask about the status of the construction before you visit…we were lucky enough to get to hear the constant thumping of steel poles being driven into the ground across the river from about 9 am to 7 pm every day.
Nice, quiet place. Our site was up front and we didn’t venture into the park. We did use the laundry room, which needed some updates, especially some lighting. It has a pretty large staircase and at night with a handful of laundry, it was a little scary navigating without lights. Other than that, it was a good stop over for a couple of nights.
