I've reviewed this campground before, and it remains our family's favorite campground...anywhere! Our latest trip was for Halloween Weekend. We stayed in the new "A" Sites at the creek...we were specifically on A42...beautiful view of the lake and backs up to the creek. I simply can not say enough good things about this place and the staff! We love Jellystone,...

This was our first time at the park. In February, We reserved a tent site near the entrance and close to the ranger station. It was shady and grassy and perfect for my middle son who is disabled. He can walk a short distance with help. When we got there in June, we saw that the site we ended up...

We camped on a group site the first weekend of the Halloween season, overall it was a great weekend with the exception of the Haunted House. It was NOT a kid friendly event, numerous kids were hysterical including my own who didn't go through it but was terrified from the sounds. Since everything is kid focused we were surprised that...

Hello, Susan! Thank you for your feedback on the Haunted House. This will help us a lot in the coming weeks. We took your concerns into consideration and we have decided to begin a "Light Haunted House" before the full event so our younger or more easily scared guests may have the opportunity to pass through without becoming too spooked....

We took our 8 year old twins for a weekend. The campground does a fantastic job of having events all day long (some with a fee). We had smores on Friday night, and watched a magic show on Saturday night. For a fee you can use the miniature gold course and canoes all weekend. We were really disappointed that the...

We took our two children (2 and 4 yrs old) tent camping here. The staff was super friendly and we met one of the owners "mama bear" who remembered and called our girls by their names the whole time! A nice touch! Lots of fun activities for our 4 year old and our 2 year old enjoyed the playsets and...

Very disappointed. The entry and roads are all steep hills making RV travel difficult. The bathrooms and showers in our area were really barely passable. The shower curtains are moldy at the bottom and should have been replaced long ago. The biggest negative is that the pool and facilities are open to the public till 4pm. So there are loads...

We have been going to this campground for 5 or 6 years and love it. Our kids enjoy the visits from Yogi. But the best is when he shows up at the dance and does his dance. The campground has grown so much from when we started going, it is getting harder to get into.

So, we have stayed at other Jellystone parks and Marion had the same rating as the one we enjoy the most. The contrast was the swing between positive comments and negative ones. Every campground is gonna have a fee negative reviews, even Fort Wilderness-Disney World. But the reviews should have tipped me off. First, our site was pretty nice. Good...

Thank you very much for your feedback and we are glad to hear you enjoyed your site albeit it was not level. We have had a significant amount of heavy rain this year which has caused several of our lakefront sites to become slightly eroded. Now that we have an opportunity we are in the process of re-grading these sites....

This was our first time visiting Jellystone Marion. We tent camped with our 6 year old son. Lots of things for him to do. Crafts, pool, waterslide, mini golf, geocaching, fishing...he loved collecting all his stamps on the passport. We had such a good time, and will definitely be back!
