We're hoping to spend several weeks camping near Akron, OH this summer again. We're looking for a park that we can stay for probably 4 weeks or so with 3 small children that has plenty for them to do all day, and a lot of other friendly campers.
A couple years ago we stayed at the Yogi Bear Jellystone park for a few weeks and really loved it. That same year we stayed at Clay's park and weren't impressed at all (actually had 4 weeks reservations and left after the first few days).
I see that the park that was a Jellystone is still there but no longer part of Yogi Bear, and is now owned by Morgan RV Resorts. My kids loved all of the Yogi related activities that they used to offer.
So this year we're wondering where we should stay. Does anyone have experience with the new owners at the Jellystone? Can you recommend another park in the area we should consider?
Any input is appreciated.

I am a seasonal at Roundup Lake which is the old JellyStone. The Jellystone franchise was dropped early last season and besides not seeing the characters walking around nothing really has changed(they have new characters...kind of cheesy). There is still daily activities for the kids and weekly themed weekends. The lake has been better then ever and the pool looks great.
With all of that said I am no fan of Morgan RV and if the park was not so nice I would be looking elsewhere. I do think there is a $289.00 a week special going on right now.
As for the new owners...... Morgan has owned this park for many years.
