We were able to enjoy the last Halloween weekend of the season! It was our first time staying at Yogi in the Smokies and we plan to return. The playground equipment was given a A+ from the kids along with the surrounding games and rec center. It's hard to find a campground with activities but this place has just the right amount. The weather was awful and raining but the management arranged for the trick or treating to be held in the rec center which was FABULOUS news for the kids. It was a great trip!

We are so grateful for your detailed review and the A+ rating from the kids! We're happy that we were able to change the location for the trick-or-treating and provide the kids with some great Halloween fun, despite the poor weather. It was a treat to have you camp with us and we hope to see your family again real soon.

We stopped at this campground in early October of this year - and we were VERY pleased with the campground in general and especially with out campsite. The campsite was right along the river - and the sounds of the water were fantastic. We watched some river otters play about dusk not 25 feet from us - that was fun! I wish the road noise was further away - there are some loud exhausts out there! But all in all, we enjoyed this campground.

Stayed here two nights to be on the Cherokee area to sight see. The cabin was clean, except the coffee pot. The staff was great very nice. We leased the bedding since we were flying in. The blanket was super thin so we needed the heater during the night and the air during the day. We were able to have one homemade breakfast which was nice all the utensils were in the room. Wifi is hit or miss.

We stayed at Jellystone campground in Cherokee, NC (also called Yogi in the smokies) for 6 nights ($56/night) in our 29foot travel trailer. The campgrounds were clean and kid friendly with a nice playground, river access, pool (closes around Laber Day), and craft house that is opened everyday from 10:30am-5pm. The staff at the Craft house were always friendly and gave the kids lots of praise for their crafts. The site(121) we used was gravel and level and riverside but there was a retaining wall that you had to climb down to get to the river. Some sites are at a higher point on the retaining wall and others are right by the water so do your research to get the right one. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had an issue with our neighbors fire pit being on our site and really close to our camper and the staff quickly moved it with no problem. Some of the sites are smaller so it gets a bit cramped when you have to park your truck beside your camper so again do your research to get a site with plenty of space. Site 130 seems perfect with a large lot, low retaining wall and a slow moving area of water for little ones to play. The bathhouse we used (at the far end of the campground) were clean, spacious and modern. We opted to use the bathhouse instead of our camper because they were so nice. The craft house rents tubes ($10/day) so you can go tubing down the river. You can also bring your own but I suggest high quality ones that are specifically for tubing because the rocks are unforgiving if you use a cheap Walmart float like we did ;) . We went tubing the length of the campground with our 7 and 10 year old with no problem. The kids got the nice rented tubes and had a great time. Well we all had a great time but my husband and I have a few bruises from the rocks due to our Walmart tubes being so low in the water. I would definitely recommend this campground for a family friendly vacation.

My family stayed three nights at Yogi in the Smokies. The employees are very nice and helpful. The river is nice and it is very peaceful. The wifi is very spotty. We weren't very far from the router, but the log in would come and go. Very frustrating. Also, be careful of the speed bumps/humps coming into the campground. A couple of them aren't painted and you'll hit them before you realize they are there. Overall, nice little place.
