Review of Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Campground in Goodfield, Illinois
September 2009 – 2 Nights
There are a variety of campsites here. The park has quite a bit of of permanent or seasonal campers but there are still quite a few weekend campsites. There is a mix of open field sites and ones that back up to woods as well. The park is actually quite well. There are some tent sites right on the small lake.
Campsite spacing is mixed. Some sites have a decent amount of space but most seem stacked together fairly tight. We were in site number 117 which was probably one of the largest pull thru sites. Most of the pull thru sites barely had enough room to pull out an awning.
Some sites are gravel drive and others are all grass depending on what you pick out. Our site was a fairly level, full hook up, pull thru site. I’d say site quality is very mixed depending on what you pick. Some of this has to do with the spacing.
I do not believe that there is any hiking at the park.
There is a small lake that you can rent kayaks or paddle boats on
I did take a few casts off of the bank, catching a smaller largemouth bass.
This campground is geared nicely toward the kids with the Yogi Bear theme and Kyle really enjoyed it. There is a wagon ride with Yogi, and a variety of other activities for the kids.
Overall this park would not be my first pick of a place to camp but since it is only about 20 minutes away I believe I will find it to be a convenient place to go for the first trip of the season. If you are close to the park and have kids, it might be a good place to go for a weekend. I tend to like state parks with a more rustic feel to them. Kyle did really enjoy Yogi Bear though.
