This was a clean, pretty park and you could see Lake Erie from many of the sites. There were several playground areas and the equipment was all newer. They have beautiful walking trails that are not too difficult for seniors, but watch if you have little ones because there are some steep drop-offs. We didn't use the swimming area and cannot comment on that. They have run new electric lines and upgraded service at many sites but left the ground lumpy and uneven and difficult to walk. Hopefully that will be corrected. We had an extreme black carpenter ant problem at our site. We discovered ants were climbing the electric pole and walking the electric line into our camper. We put tape over the hole and notified park officials, who came immediately when we complained, put down some kind of ant powder and gave us 2 ant traps. We've pulled everything out of the camper since we left the park, and four days later it looks like we may finally be rid of the ants. Many campsites are perpendicular to the road and difficult to back into. We discovered many people pulling up the site marker poles, which came right out making it easier to back into, then putting the poles back. Bathrooms and showers were clean, individual and completely private but no way to dry your hands in the bathroom. Great water pressure. Sites 10 and 11 looked good, great lake view and easy to get into. All in all, a nice park. We camped at Lake Erie State Park in a Travel Trailer.
Dunkirk is a short drive away and they have a free summer music festival on the pier. They have different groups on the weekends and you can bring your own lawn chair and enjoy the music. Very enjoyable. You can probably Google to find out who's playing on any given weekend.
