First time out..EVER

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park
340 Blackburn Road
Quarryville, PA 17566


We recently purchased a used 1993 Prowler 24M. We decided to give it our first test run this past weekend. The Jellystone park had been suggested to my husband by a couple coworkers as a good site for first timeing. Plus it was less than an hour away from our house.

I called Friday morning to see if there was any space. The staff was very friendly and thrilled that we would come there for our first time and picked out a space for us that would be fairly easy to get in/out of and hook ups.

We got there with no problems and since I had done most of the stuff over the phone we were taken immediatly to our site. We had a decent site, which might have been easier to get into if one of the trees was not there. Anyway, we got there at 5 and was grilling burgers by 5:30. Set up was that easy. Because it was our first time the reservation guy put us at a site that had water, electric, sewer and cable. Did not really need the cable but didn't really have a choice. The site also had a fire pit and a picnic table. After we ate dinner, we went up to the Ranger Station to finish filling out the paperwork.

Staff there was friendly. Usual camp store stuff. You could also buy boxes of firewood or ask for a load to be delivered to your campsite. We opted to not have a fire. We were also given a list of events happening around the park for the weekend.

Needless to say, we did much of nothing. Watched a couple movies on the laptop, snoozed, swam, made a walmart run for things we needed.

The site itself was not totally full. It was quiet and well patrolled. We had to use the bath house on Saturday morning to shower because we had not figured out the hot water tank yet. They were fairly clean, just some muddy footprints on the floor in mine. The hubby had 2 big moths in his shower curtain so he didn't use that when he showered. While I was showering the shower curtain fell down which is always fun with a head full of shampoo.

Anyway, we had a really good time and would probably go back. Have loads of other places to try first though!
