I agree, the Jellystone brand could be soooo much better than what it is today...they really need to overhaul the concept.
Like others, we've been to way more disappointing JS campgrounds than great ones!

We were just there about three weeks ago. We liked it. Of the three close to us, Luray is the cheapest (but still pricey) and was nice. They also did not have any add on charges except for some of the craft stuff. So the laser tag, super slide and jumping pillow were included in the site fee. The bathhouse needs additional ventilation - was very stuffy with all the showers going but was kept fairly clean considering the amount of traffic. We only go there for the kids. Would not go there otherwise.

Stay out of the Jellystone Park in Montrose, CO. Yogi wouldn't stay there either!

Just stayed 4 nights in Larkspur, Co. First time in a J S park . No complaints other than the spot they gave me was a little tricky to back in but the grounds were clean, kids had a blast and the trash pick up at 11am is kinda nice. Staff was super helpful and nice.

Well we are back from Yogi in Luray Va. It was great nice park clean and big did miss not having the outside movie screen and no pedal carts. Nice water park for the kids and a good Miniature golf.

Just spent 5 nights at yogi in Hagerstown. Very pricey, the most expensive campground we have been to but all activities are included in the price. Our kids love the pool, watermark, pedal carts, jumping pillow and laser tag. They had a number of teenagers working there that were outstanding and so kind to us and our kids. One rude employee was a lady working in reservations. As with a lot of campgrounds they have good sites and others that aren't as good. We enjoyed the premium site, all grass and large but few trees. There is an older section that is heavily shaded but we wouldn't stay in that section because muddy after it rains. Of course we have friends that will only stay in that section and love it! It's all in what you are looking for, know what you like and go with it.

Even though expensive so there is so much to do we never left the campground and spent money on other forms of entertainment.

Yes, of the three Jellystones in our area, I think the Hagerstown is #2 most expensive. The site charge is the cheapest, but they then tack on a 9 bucks/person charge for the first three nights for the amenities (for 4 people, that is an extra 36 dollars/night). Luray is cheaper, but a little farther away and Quarryville Pa is even more expensive. We have been to all three, the Hagerstown was the one we liked the least. All in all, these Jellystones are all pricey but they are all decent CG. Once the kids outgrow this, we will probably not go back.

We normally go to the Hagerstown location for one of their Halloween weekends. Expensive, but the kids have a great time.
