In response to Mike and family: I don?t know why somebody would write a review of a campground using 1 day out of 9 as an example of what the staff at Paradise Pines was like. I am one of the staff. I am the Staff that you woke up at 11:30 PM the day you checked and took you to your site! I am the Staff that you asked if you could get some wood at 11:30 at night and unlocked our woodshed and brought you 2 bundles of wood! I am the Staff that did most of the Hey rides and train rides that your family participated in while you sat in you car night and day for 8 days. I am one of the Staff that helped your children into the hot air balloon on Saturday and was talking to your wife about what a great time they were having for the last 7 days. I am the Staff that you asked Sunday morning if you could bring your belongings to the large pavilion to sort out and dry. I am the Staff that rearranged the tables in that pavilion so you could get your belongings out of the wind and rain. (It was the beginning of hurricane ?Irene?). I was one of the Staff that was trying to eat lunch in the small pavilion when you brought your 2 dogs in an eating area, past the no dogs allowed sign, to ask if we had some dry towels to dry your dogs off. ( Which we gave you). I was one of the Staff that told you that the dryers would not work without power as you were walking towards the Laundromat with your arms full of clothes. ( You were not happy but it was not our fault! NO POWER! ).
Tenting is always a challenge and in the Adirondacks is even more of a challenge with our changing weather. Most people that tent do not bring a lot of electronics with them and if they do they will usually keep them in there vehicle to protect them from adverse weather. It started raining Sunday around 1 AM. It was the leading edge of hurricane ?Irene?. We checked the river at 8 AM Sunday and it was still 2 to 3 feet below its banks. The owners of the campground (Mike and Gina Lenhard) offered everybody in tents the option of moving to a cabin at no extra charge as it was raining very hard. Animals are not allowed in any of our cabins (its an allergy thing) but they had decided to break there own rule for the people in tents.
I don?t know why your wife wanted to talk to the Staff and I never heard of our Staff saying they were too busy to talk to a customer. I don?t know of anything the Staff could do for you that wasn?t done. There are a lot of things that go on in the background that campers don?t see but take for granted. We were busy trying to get electric to the well, boiler and phones. If it was at this time that you wanted attention from the Staff we may have told you that we were busy this is not the norm at Yogi Bear @ Paradise Pines.

After 40 years of camping at various campgrounds throughout the Adirondack region. In 2001 we decided to become seasonals at Yogi Bear Jellystone Park - Paradise Pines much due to Gina & Mike Lenhard and their wonderful staff of knowledgeable, caring people. It is a fun, friendly, relaxing campsite with numerous activities for the kids and families, not to mention the fun theme weekends. Gina, Mike and their staff make you feel like family.
Hats off to this years staff. Despite two floods and a rainy summer they were there helping campers and improvising programs whenever it was necessary. A special thanks to the staff who arose at 2:30am when ?Irene? came calling, with the rapid rising of the Schroon River to flood stage. This staff rescued a family that had become trapped in a flooded cabin, relocating them to higher ground. The staff continued to work all week readying the camp for Labor Day Weekend. A weekend that was enjoyed by all.
Paradise Pines is a terrific family campground. Try it ? You?ll like it!

My children and I camp at Jellystone every August. It is a fantastic family oriented campground. It's safe, well maintained and there is always lots for the kids to do. When we leave, I always have to ask the kids how their vacation was, as I hardly see them! They hardly left the jumping pillow when we were there in August 2011. Great addition!
I highly recommend this campground for a fun filled family trip.

We enjoyed ourselves until we needed the staff most. Our Tent and everything in it and everything in our screen-house and the screen-house itself was under 4 inches of water when we awoke at 6:30AM Sunday August 28th and the river just feet away from the tent was overflowing on to our site. My wife tried to talk to the staff but was consistently told "We are Busy and don't have time to talk" we couldn't believe the rudeness but we decided to try to get as mush of our stuff to safety as possible. Needless to say we lost almost everything from our Laptop computers, Ipads, Iphones, Kids Nintendo 3DS's, Portable DVD player, Tent, Screen-house, Stove, clothing etc... you get the point, but in no way did we fault the staff for anything but we were just asking for help. We didn't know what to do so we threw almost everything away since we couldn't bring all of the Soaked stuff into the Car so we started to pack up all of the unaffected stuff which wasn't much and load it into the car getting ready to leave a day early since our blankets were soaked with filthy water and they had no power to wash anything. Then as we are about to leave they finally come to us and say we could use one of the cabins for the night and we just laughed since we were already ready to leave Soaked from head to toe and exhausted. My kids were Sad and My wife and I were very disappointed with the staff even though we knew they weren't responsible for anything but they were downright rude except for 1 who came to me right before we were about to leave and was very nice but overall the Place was nice until the storm but the service the whole trip wasn't the greatest. We spent 9 Days there and it was very expensive for a campground but the kids had fun BUT I would NOT recommend this place until they replace the current staff with more people friendly staff and when we were in contact with the main "Jellystone company" we were told it was being looked into before our incident. Beware of this place because they don't handle people or problems well!
