Date of Stay: May, 2007
We stayed here for free during opening "cleanup" weekend. Being our 2nd time there, we knew what to expect but were still impressed with Sherwood Forest. To me, the campground staff can make or break a stay and they were great! Everyone we dealt with was very friendly & helpful. It's just an overall great park, our kids love the playgrounds, good size sites, nice layout, just a thumbs up all-around. It has a very welcoming, comfortable feel to it & that's the kind of place I like to come back to.
Date of Stay: June, 2006
We took a family trip to Sherkston Shores in Sherkston, Ontario, Canada in June 2006. We found this location after doing much research online for the Niagara Falls area and were not disappointed. It is a stand-out among campgrounds, actually more of a resort. There was one large heated pool, a kiddie pool (was cold, though) and even water slides. There were 2 hot tubs, but do not let your children near them! There were many lifeguards on staff, but they won't even let kids dip their toes in the hot tubs. We went off-season so not all attractions were open, but still plenty to do. Sand volleyball, mini-putt, arcade, etc. Had laundry facilities and convenience store. Was a swimming quarry there as well, with sandy beach. The best asset is it's right on the shores of Lake Erie and was just beautiful. Cars can even drive right onto beach, which may get hectic at times. It was a large campground and very scenic, although no privacy between sites. Nice shower building but was not kept very clean while we were there for a period of 4 nights. Plugged up toilets, no toilet paper, dead bugs all over, mildewy showers, etc. The staff were split between quite nice and quite indifferent. Apparently, there are permanent residents who own park homes there and I felt they were somewhat rude to us as tent campers. So each person's experience may vary. Also, I should add we have 3 children under 12 and that surely made us stand out a bit. The majority of people there when we were seemed to be older and very few kids there at all. That and the fact we were the only Americans there as far as we knew, we felt a little out of place! Very pretty location a bit outside of touristy Niagara Falls, we'd give a 7 overall. Plus: beautiful location. Minus: Not enough attention to detail and some rude staff.
