I think we beat the price issue by using a Groupon deal or something. But, pretty spendy but can be worth it for water-loving families.

We stayed at a Jellystone park somewhere west of Chicago. We were just driving through and pulled in on a Monday following a long weekend. The park was dirty, dirty, dirty, the site wasn't level, the pool was dirty, garbage everywhere and it was pricey. I just thought this was the way campers left the CG in this part of the world. The Jellystone park here in Nova Scotia is pricey with small lots, lots of activity for the kids and very clean.

The one in Fremont Ind. was nice , has been awhile since we've camped there, kids are grown so don't need the "amusement park" camping, prefer nature, trails and outdoors.

We've been to two in Grayling MI and Frankenmuth MI. No issues but stopped going because the price is way to high for what you get and the one in Frankenmuth is in city limits so no fire pits just a community pit.

We camped at one here in New York. It was off season get one night free deal. They had all kinds of activities that my kids did not get to do including the jumping pillow because we had to by a wrist band for all four of them if we wanted them to have access to anything but the playground. The band were $20 each sir it was twice as much as I payed to camp there.

The age of your kids plays a big part. We actually destination camped at Jelleystone, North Java, N.Y. last year. At first glance it seems a bit pricey but everything was included. I didn't feel nickel and dimed to death! Pools, big waterpark, mini golf, laser tag, pedal cars, canoes and Kayaks... Kids were 7 and 9 so right up their alley and easy for us to keep them entertained!

Either Millbrook or Amboy. either one is usually very nice!

We stayed a week at the one at lake Eufaula in Oklahoma last summer. It was pretty good, a couple of spots of algae in the tile cracks of the pool and there was some on the the lake inflatables too. But it was like 110°+ (we had a record 113 or 115° that week) so algae was growing pretty uncontrollably.
-I think it was a pretty new park too. It cost $69 a night last year for rvs, wife just checked earlier this week and it was $89 a night now.

Co worker camped at the Jelleystone near Marion, NC this past weekend. She would agree that for the money they wouldn't go back. She said the pics on their site were old and the campground had changed since they were taken. She saved me a trip.
