I don't understand the ratings this park is getting. We've camped here for years in an RV and decided to tent it this year. IT IS A WONDERFUL campground. The flat river is perfect for kids to go down. We tubed once and canoed the second day. MY son who loves fishing was very lucky on this river. The horses are wonderful and we went for a ride 3 days in a row. They have nice bike trails and a little BMX track for those interested. The pool was warm and clean. I love the back part where it is wooded. It is bit bumpy, but this is camping - I don't want a lot of cement when I camp - even if I am in an RV! The lots on the river vary in size and some are more conducive to groups. Be sure to ask when reserving. This is one of the most beautiful private campgrounds I have ever been to. Please don't let negative comments keep you away. Also, they have a golf course that we've never played but it looks nice.

We're used to "up north" camping but decided to head south when we saw the forecast. What a pleasant surprise! Friendly staff, great location (Toledo zoo, Cabelas, Lake Erie, Monroe), clean showers, nice size sites, excellent laundry room, and lots of tress and things to do. Kids loved it, son fished and fished, daughter met lots of friends and rode her bike endlessly. Park staff kept cars to a crawl and I felt very comfortable with letting the kids have a bit of independence. The cg had putt-putt, a nice swimming lake, water slide, sports fields, and a great store with very fair prices. This probably isn't the place for you if you want solitude and quiet but it is excellent for families for a close to home get-away.

This State Park is awesome. The campground needs some maturing, but the trails are great as is the fishing and swimming. But please be aware that although the lake at the campground is still okay, Big Seven Lake had it's dam break and is partly drained. This was the best lake for swimming although it is quite a hike from the campground. Hopefully they will get funding from the state to repair this situation.
