“Disappointing”

Reviewed Jul 01, 2016

Overall Rating

This park should not be a Jellystone Park. We travel fulltime all over the country and have visited many Jellystone parks. These RV parks tend to cost more than other places we stay, but usually the cost is justified by the fun amenities and activities that our family enjoys. This park is just a regular, no-frills RV park that is not at all like other Jellystone Parks we have been to. The worst part was they didn’t even have a pool open until 6/24 while most parks around the country have a pool open between Memorial Day and Labor Day at a minimum. The week we were there the temperatures were in the upper 90s (as high as 98 one day) yet no pool to cool off in. Most Jellystone Parks we go to have a huge list of fun activities for the kids starting Friday evening through Sunday. We usually never want to leave the park, but this particular Jellystone did not have many activities at all, and we ended up venturing out to find other things to do and other places to swim. And since we travel full-time and typically stay at state parks where we are not usually able to receive packages, we always look forward to catching up on our mail and deliveries when we stay at an RV park because they typically allow you to have packages delivered. Not this one! What a disappointment to find out I could not get caught up on deliveries while staying there, especially considering the price we were paying to stay at this “no frills” park. We were there with a rally of other traveling families, and one of the families helped the manager get the laser tag guns working. We thought that since they did not have a pool or anything else for us to do, maybe they would at least get laser tag working. Then we find out they are going to charge extra money to play that. Seriously? The park is already overpriced for what you get, the pool wasn’t open despite the hot temps, and now you’re going to charge extra for laser tag? No thank you! Like I said before, we’ve been to many Jellystone Parks, and several had laser tag, bounce pads, waterslides, splash pads, etc. and they didn’t even charge extra for those amenities. It was all included in the price we paid to stay there. Well for some reason this Jellystone Park doesn’t see the need to provide any amenities and if they do, they want you to pay extra for it. If you are looking for a park with lots of fun things for your kids to do, look somewhere else.
