Date of Stay: April, 2009 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

That 10/10 review could only have come from the owner's mouth! After my experience at Tunkhannock Yogi Bear Campgrpund this spring, I will never take my family there ever again under this current ownership. First off, we accepted a promotion to camp one night free with the agreement to spruce up the campground. When it came to “cleaning” time, my family, including my elderly grandparents, was made to rake and pick rocks, not only in our area, but over the entire campground. People were even chopping wood and one camper had to paint a building, all this while the owners sat and watched! Another event that weekend, offered a free meal, which ended up requiring that you bring your own can of soup. One visitor was screamed at for not stopping at the front gate to pay a $5.00 visitors fee. Also, our neighbors had a 16 year-old visitor that left 5 minutes past visiting-hours and was surrounded by a group of people, including the owner, who blocked the road, and the boy had to call 911 after allegedly being assaulted. We are not the only group who had had difficulty with this campground. I was sharing my experience with a local business owner and found out that they had been “evicted”, losing $1,700.00 before the season had even started. Why? Their son drove into the camp to clean up their site and he didn’t stop to pay his girlfriend’s $3.00 entry fee! Again, the season had not yet started! Many people throughout the community share similar stories. One sweet old woman, a seasonal camper of 35 years and widow to a Korean War veteran, was forced to leave with no reason even given. The Tunkhannock Yogi Bear Campground is certainly not family friendly or fun. They are just taking people's money. I have been traveling out that way for years and think Tunkhannock is a beautiful area and a tight knit community. I doubt very much that they will stand for this brand of business for long. We camped at Cozy Creek Family Campground (formerly Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park) in a Motorhome.
