Stayed again for the halloween weekend. Great time. I had a very good lot near the haunted barn. Trick or treating was great for the kids. Costume contest was good.... even though the judges seemed to favor the seasonals. Pumpkin contest for the kids, bingo, hayrack rides.... all in all a great time, once again. Great job guys!

We were guests of Jellystone this week and to say the least, we were very disappointed. We rented Cindy’s Cottage A and we were so grossed out by the crusted hair in the drain of both showers, the heavily stained carpeting, the awful smell of the water and the old mildew smell of the entire cottage. the unit looked like it had not been updated in 30 years! Please please update and clean thoroughly, remove all carpeting and replace with laminate flooring with throw rugs. Much more easier to keep clean. We wore our shoes the entire time. Did not let my grandkids touch the carpet or couches. The miniature golf was really run down and the prices in the store were crazy. The new owners need to pay attention to their investment.

NEVER AGAIN!!! where do i start? needs updating asap!! w/ all the $ they bring in you think they could update the bathrroms/showers! the showers didnt have doors only curtins and the bathrooms needed more sinks (only four for a 6-8 stall woman's bathroom)..plus they stunk! the womens was closed on july 4th night! bc some nasty people had clogged them up.....took forever for them to re open...
the general store very overpriced..$3.75 for paperplates? are you kidding me? pack everything you need or you will go broke just in the general store!...the pools (while there are 3) were way overcrowded and there was no room to swim! the "gem mine" they advertise is a joke! it is basically dirty water i wouldnt even want to stick my hand in, its so nasty! they need to take that off the web site. it is very misleading!...the hey ride didnt have hay..it doubled for a garbage truck in the AM.... our campsite was surronded by rude neighbors who seems like they only paid for 2 tents but by the end of the night 5 tents were up on their lot! they were loud, rude and drunk. i would never bring a child into that environment. we told the "staff" if you can call them that, that our neighbors needed to turn down their music bc it was after 11PM, nothing was ever done about it. when we got there in the AM our neighbors stole our picnic table and used up all but 1 of the electric outlets. once again staff does not monitor or care. its all about $$$ here.... this place needs to be updated..the golf couse is old and out dated, bathrooms gross and i wont even say where they can shove their golf carts up! we saw tons of people speeding around them w/ beer in hand! real family friendly huh??? once again no staff to be found or care...NEVER AGAIN...save yourself...pass this on!!! do not stay there w. kids..it is dirty and over run over priced and the staff and your neighbors have no care or concers or common curtosey! BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD@!!!!!!!!!!

Horrible

Date:

We rented a golf cart for 10 minutes. They came to the swimming pool and publically took it back from us because we allowed our 4 year old grandson to drive. He sat in his grandpa's lap and pretended to drive. He is 36" tall so it is fairly obvious he couldn't really drive the golf cart he couldn't reach the pedals. There was no explaining this and they kept our $200 deposit for this reason as well. They were willing to ignore the circle of 10 drunks swearing and playing their music loudly at 11:30 AM in the presence of a pool full of children. They also ignored a group blasting their music that could be heard 3 roads over where we were at with lyrics of "yeh, you're a crazy bitxx, but you fucx so good". We expected a nice family place with lots of activities for the kids. The staff was horrible. Don't take your kids there, it isn't family friendly.

Great experience

We had the best time of our lives on vacation. Better than Disney etc. It gives you the opportunity to bond with your children like never before. Fire building skills retreiving sticks for marshmellows, of course swimming friends of all kinds. We met lots of grandmas and grandpas my kids don't have. They had running rights. They staff provided my kids with their first crushes, that wasn't listed in the brochure. It is great to hear my adult kids tell others their memories. Thanks O'Connells for the good times. Now I am looking for a smaller trailer and will be back for the grandkids. We miss you. If you like call me I do remember where the best marshmellow sticks are. 630-788-8754

rude, impersonal

This used to be a family owned place, since it went corporate it has gone down hill. Management once upon a time was friendly and caring, now they are rude, abrupt and impersonal.

On busy weekend the bathrooms have a lot to be desired. Usually one one the three pools is closed for some reason or another. Just isn't the fun place it used to be.

Golf cart rental/usage is irritating/dangerous. Very expensive, not very natural.
