Great place for the whole family
Jul 29, 2014 by: Kristie T from Baltimore, Maryland
This was our second trip to Jellystone Park in Hagerstown and it did not disappoint. We had ages that ranged from 9-60 and a fun time was had by all. The pool area is neat and clean, the slides are super fun and the grounds offer plenty of activity for the kids. I did not rate 5 stars because the bathing facilities are not the best. There are too few and not a lot amenities in the bathroom. Honestly, some of the state parks have better restrooms/showers. Overall, it's a great place to go and I would highly recommend. The staff is courteous and truly offer excellent customer service.
Not worth the money

We camped over a weekend in late July (check in Friday, check out Sunday). With the check in time being 3:00 it really didn't give us much time to explore and use the campground on Friday, we spent a short time in the main pool and it was crowded but not to bad. Saturday was a totally different story, I have taken my family to Disney during peak season and it has not been as crowded and chaotic as this place was. No room in either pool, the campground was like a major highway and sites are literally right on top of each other. Myself and family spent most of our day in our camper as we were tired of feeling violated after trying to spend time at the pool being knocked around by obnoxious kids with parents who don't care and waiting in line for almost 30 minutes just to go down the water slide. However the worst thing of all for me was the bathroom (specifically the mens room near the main entrance to the campground). We were closest to this restroom and noticed upon arrival a odor coming from the direction of this building. After setting up camp I walked across the road to visit this so called mens room and it was something out of a horror movie. Flies everywhere, a smell that made your eyes water and hard to breath to say the least. There were 2 toilet stalls in the mens room and both were broken with one being over flowed with feces on the floor. I said something to one of the staff members after visiting the rest room (this was Friday afternoon) and long story short when we checked out on Sunday there was no change. No working toilet and feces on the floor. I made the longer walk to the next closest mens room the rest of the weekend and not much better. I have been to campsites where I have paid $30/night that have been nicer, cleaner and much more relaxing. This place in my book is not worth the money, what they advertise and what they deliver are totally 2 different things. I will NOT be going back to this campground ever again.

This was our first time visiting, and will NOT be our last. It was a fantastic place to visit. The hospitality was wonderful, they escorted us to our site, everyone was exceptional polite, and the park was very clean and well kept. It was a very nice change of pace. I would recommend this park hands down. The only concern I had about writing this review is if I tell you how wonderful it is, It will make it more popular and possibly raise the rates, but it was truly is a wonderful place to visit with lots to do.
Great park, clean and a lot of fun

We traveled with our 9 year old son and two other families with children ages 5-8. We all had a great time. There were so many activities to do, we never needed to leave the campground. While this campground was more expensive than many others, we did not need to spend any money once we arrived (other than for adult tickets to zip line.) The children were kept occupied the entire time and were exhausted by the end of the night. The sites are narrow, but ours was a pull through, so we had no problems setting up our 34 foot travel trailer. We would definitely return.
Our first time camping here

This was our first time here and will be the last. The park was very clean and the rv site we had was very nice. But too many people for such a small pool, we could barely stand and the kids were bored standing too. You just had no room to move and the whole pool is only 3 ft deep. During the week it's not bad but on Saturday it's way too crowded. The teens working there definitely needed more experience especially at the peddle carts. People practically took over and the poor girl didn't know what to do. Also no one seems to know where the hiking trail started on the lazer tag/peddle car side. We never did find the entrance. Also, our site neighbor was poring his gray water directly on the ground as were a few other pop up campers. We complained about our neighbor and the did make him put his hose in the sewer. Between that and the 2 dogs barking on the other side, filled with 6 adults and 2 children. Let's just say I was glad to come home. Oh, and the wifi only seemed to work In Front of the store.
