A fantastic campground to go to if you have children! Your day starts with a flag raising with Yogi. There are daily activities and crafts. Our grandchildren made princess crowns and pirate hats, shot bows and arrows, and took a hike to find arrow heads! There's a sand beach, 2 water slides and a huge inflatable slide in the middle...

We have thoroughly enjoyed previous stays at other Jellystone locations and this one was no exception. The planned activities are great for the kids and other activities were lots of fun too. Fishing on the lake was a good time and we were very appreciative that the swimming lake was still open until this weekend, as it is late in... More

This was our first Jellystone experience. The grounds were clean and well cared for. Our two full hook up sites(323, 325) were a little on the narrow side, but the fire ring area made up for that. These two sites have adjoining fire ring areas which was perfect for our group. Activities The kids loved the planned activities throughout the... More

This was our family's first camping trip! We had a blast! The campground is clean, our lot was spacious and beautiful (T-2) and the activities were so much fun! As other reviewers mentioned, the showerhouses have individual shower stalls/changing rooms and are super clean and not even buggy! It was a decent 2 minute walk each way from our camp... More

We had a beautiful spot (213), with an incredible view of the beach. Everything was well maintained and many activities for our 3 small boys. Crafting, gem mining, beach, paddle boats, swimming. I would recommend renting a golf cart when you reserve your site, some of the hills can be a bit much for small kids or if you are... More

We are a family of four, with 4 and 6 year old boys. This resort was perfect! We love Jellystones. We really liked the feel of this one. It has an old school feel in the best way. Our boys can get distracted by the bounce pillows and mini golf at other parks. I feel like we spent more time... More

We really enjoyed our weekend camping here. The kids loved the slides and swam all day. I do wish there was a lifeguard at the new slide in the lake. Some of the teens were a little rough. We also took advantage of some of the activities, which were fun. The older staff members were wonderful. We will go back.

I have been camping at Dogwood Valley, now affiliated with Jellystone Parks, for decades. The new owners are doing a wonderful job revitalizing the campground. Several positive improvements have been made over the past years. This year the beach has been expanded and a new life jacket policy has been put into place. All individuals regardless of age must wear... More

We booked a 3 day weekend a month or so in advance and were glad we did, because by the time we went to bed on Friday night the campground was full. Most of the people seemed to be families with children, and I can only say the campground would be a wonderful place to take the kids because of... More

Grandkids had a great time swimming, playing on both water slides, exploring, and crafts. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We had an issue with the power at our campsite. Could not run the air conditioner in our camper without the breaker tripping. The site was spectacular with a direct view of the lake and swim area.
