There is so many activities for the kids and the campground is extremely well maintained. The people are very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be going back!!!

Room Tip: This is a campground not a hotel!

We support the Jellystone Park franchises because our kids love these parks. This campground at Kozy Rest was nice. We drove about 3 hours for a 2 night stay, mostly based on Trip Advisor ratings. We were escorted to our site in the middle of a downpour, and assisted with backing in. This is an excellent service and very much appreciated. The site was spacious, somewhat level, and very clean. The entire park was clean, including the bathrooms. The characters were out, and available 4 times during our stay. They engaged with the kids, and all 3 bears and the Ranger were always a part of the gathering. I did have a less than positive experience with the front desk: our reservation quoted a $12 activity band for the kids, and they raised their rates to $15. They did not honor the reservation rate, even though I had it on the form. This is not good customer service, but they did not care. It is not my fault that they cannot or have not updated their reservation form. The bounce pillow, mini golf, and pedal cars should be included in the rate. I do not feel that this campground is cheap as it is, but adding the additional cost of the activities makes it quite expensive for our family. Bingo should have been cheaper or even just played using candy bars. It cost our family $25 just to play the 2 games of Bingo. But, like the bounce pillow, they "got you" because the kids want to do it. They must know that as parents it is hard to say "no" to everything. They didn't do much with the "theme". There was a DJ at night, which the kids enjoyed, but that was it for the "themed weekend". The playground looked new. Mini-golf was dated. The pool was nice, but small (and cold). There were some activities throughout the day, but the kids expected more based on past Jellystone Park experiences. Maybe if we haven't been to so many other Jellystone Park and had such great experiences, our standards may not have been so high.

I apologize that you weren’t completely satisfied with your stay. I am glad to hear the escort service was helpful to you! We escort every guest to their site and help them back in regardless of precipitation! In regards to the price of the activity wristband, we did add the brand new Jellystone Park Jump Zone that is now included under the band and the price did go up $3. From your valuable feedback, we realized the price had not been updated on the pre-arrival email that everybody receives that informs them of the updated price. That has now been corrected, however we will still honor the email that you received and we are sending you a $25 Gift Certificate to make up for our mistake. I take full responsibility and apologize for the inaccurate information you received and the staff not being aware that we would honor such a discrepancy. I also apologize that you felt the price of the band was expensive. The band includes unlimited games of Miniature Golf, unlimited 30 minute pedal cart rentals and unlimited jumping in the Jump Zone everyday, all day, up to 7 days. If you golf once and rent a pedal cart once, that is already $8 so we attempted to make unlimited fun on these items extremely reasonably priced at $15 for up to an entire week of use or even 3 days of use in your scenario. In regards to Bingo, cards are $1 and can be used for all 10 games we play. We do have kids candy bar bingo on select weekends and during the week between Memorial Day and Labor Day but it wasn’t scheduled for that particular weekend, unfortunately. You were correct that the Playground is brand new and the Miniature Golf Course is a little more simple than some elaborate courses you may find some places but it was rebuilt and resurfaced just last summer. I would also say the pool was likely to be a little chilly as it is solar heated and we had a rather chilly spring this year but it is usually close to 80 degrees most of the summer because it gets a lot of sun! In regards to the activities, we are a little smaller park with a little smaller staff than some of the other Yogi Bear parks but we do our best to attempt to offer almost an activity every hour of the day all weekend long from Friday night to midday Sunday and then a little more limited activity schedule on weekdays. Thank you very much for making the 3 hour trip and we greatly appreciate you taking the time to give us this detailed feedback as it is extremely helpful in assisting our growth and our goal of continual improvement as a family owned and operated business!!!

If you ask our kids what their favorite thing to do in the summer is, they would say camping! If you ask them where their favorite place to camp is, they will say KOZY REST!!! Friends introduced us to Kozy Rest a few weekends ago and we have already booked for many weekends over the Summer and into the Fall. Your campground is such a great place for families to getaway for the weekend! We have been camping many times over the years and we can now say we found our favorite campground! If your looking for a fun, well-kept, beautiful campground, Kozy Rest is your place!

My family spent the first few years with our travel trailer trying out every campground we could find. Then we found Kozy Rest! The service is unbelievable, the children's activities are second to none, and best of all the entire staff treats you like family. We now take advantage of their gas saver program and our trailer is at Kozy Rest more than it is at home all summer. We brought friends up with their trailer this year and after just 3 visits they are sold and looking into the gas saver program too.

Kozy Rest is a very welcoming campground. They have lots of activities and some beautiful hiking trails. Bathrooms are updated and clean. The staff does a great job at keeping the campground clean, even on busy holiday weekends.
