If we had been in our big 5th wheel instead of our tent camper, our rotating might be a bit higher. The Transit RV sites are in a big field and the sites are much cleaner. We were in a water/electric/30 amp back in site in the trees and the site was uneven and all dirt. Rain made it very messy. Like several places we have encountered in the northeast, showers are in a separate location from the toilets and showers require payment for use. Shower/toilet houses were old but clean. Verizon phone/hot spot worked well. Did not use campground wifi. Lots of seasonal campsites that were well kept. Lots of chipmunks around our site. We would not stay here again.

We were assigned a back in site behind the pool house at our request since it was near the bathrooms and shower house. Site was grass, short, but very wide which suited us just fine. Sites across the street from us were full of big RVs and some had to park tow vehicle across the street because there was no room for it on the site. Office staff was friendly. Ice was sold in the office along with firewood (will deliver a fire ring to your site) and wifi was available though we did not use it and it seemed people came to the laundry to use it. Laundry was clean but very expensive at $3.50 for wash and $.25 for 10 minutes of drying time. There is no sewer at sites but campground does have a dump station and a pump out service. Showers are pay showers even in the cabins and cost $.50 for 7 minutes so bring quarters if you need to use the campground showers. It is about a 4 mile drive to Acadia. We would stop here again.

This campground has both pros and cons. It is a sandy/dirt place with tons of trees which makes backing in just about any size of RV difficult. Trees are not trimmed and the couple of big RVs that we saw enter our campground loop scraped trees on both the sides and top of their unit. There are only a couple of sites that would accommodate big rigs and we saw people have a great deal of difficulty backing in with their small RVs due to the location of the trees. The bathhouse is old but clean. Water pressure is very high so bring a pressure regulator or risk damage to your RV water system. Verizon cell and hot spot worked fine. Swimming beach was lovely which seemed to be the draw for most people. About half of the campers while we were here were in tents. Campground is not located in the main state park area. The campground does not sell ice or firewood which is odd considering the amount of tent campers. The roads are atrocious coming into the camping sites. This campground is grossly overpriced at $57 per night including reservation and out of state fees. Some of that money should be used to fix the roads. We would not stay here again.

This is a lovely, small COE park located in the woods with water and electric hook ups (there is a dump station). The roads are gravel and the sites are some sort of dirt/sand. There is a steepish hill to climb to get up to the camping loop and no one seemed to have trouble. Sites and roads are big enough for big rigs. Our assigned site was immaculate having been raked (and it was a large site) and the fire pit was clean. We are traveling with a motorcycle tent trailer so clean bathrooms are important to us and these were great. The toilet stalls are some of the roomiest I have seen and even though there is just one shower each for men and women, it was spacious with plenty of room for clothing and toiletries. Interaction with the staff was pleasant. Verizon cell and hot spot worked well. Just a couple of minor negatives. The trash dumpster is all the way outside the swing arm gate exiting the campground and they do not sell any ice. Not sure why more people do not utilize this campground because it is wonderful. We would return if ever in the area again.

I am going to give this state park campground a low rating due the the bathhouse and how disgusting it is at least in our loop. We are on a motorcycle towing a tent camper so bathroom facilities are important to us. The bathhouse structure looks ok from the outside but it is horrible in the inside. It was so bad that since we stayed only one night, we refused to shower there and will wait until our next destination. And the showers are coin operated too. The bathhouse is scheduled for renovation next year but that is not soon enough for us. We were on a full hook up site that was not level as many of the sites are not level so choose carefully (some are dramatically unlevel). Looked like many of the rigs were medium to small RVs though there are some sites that would fit bigger RVs. Picnic table is located on the grass and mud. Verizon cell and hot spot worked well and it appeared that there was no wifi which is normal for a state park. Utilities worked as advertised. Our site and access road was paved and our site was easy to pull in to. Campground was easy to locate. We would not stay here again.

This is a first come first served military campground. It is not a great campground either. Parking pads are concrete but entrance to site is just dirt, rocks and dead grass. Fire ring was overgrown with weeds and full of trash. Picnic table was useable. Bathhouse is strange especially the shower area. There is a big room in both men and women's restrooms. There is only a long bench for all three showers to use and absolutely no privacy before or after stepping into/out of the shower. The room is quite large and it seems that some sort of privacy could be arranged. The water does not taste great but the utilities (no sewer) worked fine. Verizon cell and hot spot worked well. The campground is not easy to find and we got an unfriendly feeling from the gate guard to the campground staff. There are several commercial business near the campground that were busy through most of the night. This is not up to the usual standards of most military campgrounds. We would not stay here again.

This is an interesting small campground that is more suitable for tents and medium to small RVs. There are a few sites that would accommodate larger RVs but not many. We had water, electric, picnic table, and fire pit. Verizon cell and hotspot worked well. Bathhouse was interesting. The showers had about an 18 inch step up/down for the shower. Thankfully, a grab handle was provided. Staff was friendly and even volunteered to bring us some firewood since we were camping with a motorcycle and tent trailer. We tried to tip the young man who brought our fire wood but he refused. There is a covered bridge in the state park and a very popular beach area. Lots of kids were running around screaming until very late in the night so if that bothers you, beware. The grounds were well kept and the site including the fire pit had been cleaned before we occupied our site. Cooperstown and the Baseball Hall of Fame is a short, lovely drive of less than 15 minutes. We would stay here again.

This campground is located right on Lake Ontario and has sites with electric and water and also some dry camp spots right along the lake front. it is big rig accessible but some tree trimming should be done. There is a working lighthouse in the campground that offers tours for $1 per person. There are several bathhouses. The big one at the entrance is air conditioned and there is another small bath house right beside it. There is a fairly new looking bath house down by the light house but it is not air conditioned but did have washer and dryer ($1.50 each). Verizon cell service it hit or miss because of the closeness to Canda so make sure you have your data roaming off. We were on a lakefront water and electric site and the utilities worked just fine. There are nearby dairy farms and when the wind blows a certain way, the farm smell is apparent. Cannot speak to TV reception as we have no TV in our tent trailer but people did have their antennas up and there are some wide open sites that would work for satellite TV. We loved this place and found it full of friendly people. We would love to return for a longer stay.

This is a small campground geared more for medium to small RVs and tents although we did see a couple of larger motor homes enter the campground. RV would fit on site but there is no place to park towed vehicle or large truck. Bathhouse was extremely old but kept clean. The weird thing is that there are toilets/sinks in the camping loops but one must go to a centrally located shower house/laundry and most people had to drive or ride a bike to use as sites are electric only. Definitely very inconvenient. Beach area is very nice though there were no lifeguards. Washers and dryers were fairly new and $1.50 each per load. However, do not just leave your clothes in the dryers because they are smoking hot and it took only 30 of the 60 minutes to dry. Sites really do not have any vegetation to separate you from your neighbor. Verizon cell service was ok. We really did not like this state park that much and would not return.

This was our first time staying at an Ohip state park and it was a great one. If you cannot find something to make you happy here, there is no hope. They have a swimming beach (Lake Erie), golf course, marina, hotel, conference center, activities, etc. The campground was not full during our weekend stay but it is a large campground. The grounds were well trimmed and the sites adequate for a big rig. Vegetation separates the sites so one has a feeling of privacy. Gray water dump and fresh water is available throughout the camping loops. Verizon cell service worked well but no provided wifi as far as we could tell. Sites are electric only. The only negative is that the trash dumpsters are all the way at front of the campground and could be a very long walk. We were just passing through for a couple of nights but this would be a great destination campground to spend vacation. We would return.

Price includes $9 one time entrance fee in addition to our camping fee of $37.00 ($9 out of state, $7 for Indiana resident). I would consider this a very popular but primative campground out in the middle of nowhere surrounded by corn and soybean fields. Sites are dirt and and many flood badly during rain (ours did) and we had to change sites because of the flooding. There are sites that will take big rigs but many are short. Verizon cell phone was not good but our AT&T hotspot did work (no free wifi). Sites are electric only but fresh potable water is available throughout the campground. Bathhouses wear old but clean. Camp host was very helpful when we were flooded out of our site and helped us even though he was off duty. Camp host sold ice and firewood usually in the evening. The person checking us in was polite but seemed "off" to us. For us in a tent trailer, getting flooded off our site was not a great experience and we probably would not return to the campground.

This was an overnight stop for us and this appears to be a very popular campground with a mix of tents and RVers and lots of kids. Looks like that it is big rig friendly depending on the site. Utilities were fine but the bath house was old and needed much more attention due to the high volume of users. Had 2 bars of Verizon LTE at our site but only 3G at the campground entrance. Campground hosts were very friendly and attentive. Public roads to the campground are pretty narrow. Do not take Exit 171 off I-75 because some of the roads are extremely narrow for our dually truck. Campground had a very popular pool and miniature golf. I liked this place better than my spouse and we probably would not stay here again. SWe stayed in a motorcycle tent trailer.

This was an overnight stop for us after picking up our motorcycle tent trailer and the first time we have stopped at a Tennessee State Park. Sites appear to have been recently redone with concrete parking pads with some sites still having the wooden forms around them. Parking pads are very narrow with about 6 inches of clearance on either side of our dually truck. Campground roads are also narrow and as an owner of a big rig and long time full timer, I would not consider this campground big rig friendly. The parking pads had big drop offs on either side. The picnic table and water were located in peculiar locations, well away from the actual camping pad. We had a bit of a problem figuring out which picnic table was associated with our site. We finally discovered a number on the picnic table pad that was covered with grass clippings. Electric was adequate and Verizon cell worked well. Bathhouse was old and one must dress out in the open after showering. There is a small lake filled with Canadian geese. It was quite the spectacle in the morning with lots of noise and bird droppings in about 1/3 of the campground loop. Not sure how anyone could sleep through that noise as they were surrounding several RVs. Maintenance workers began mowing and weed eating at 7:00 probably because of the extreme heat. Overall, it was a ok stay with very nice neighbors. There are some interesting turns on the roads getting to the campground. One turn was immediately following a raised railroad crossing. It was a lovely looking state park and we would consider returning if we were using our motorcycle tent trailer but we would not stay in our 37 ft 5th wheel.

This campground is mostly occupied by long term campers with only a few sites for transients. Office staff is outstanding. We arrived for just an overnight but found upon setting up that we had a mechanical issue. Campground is associated with the RV Dealer next door, and office called them in our behalf. We also had an urgent medical condition and the staff assisted us in finding an urgent care clinic. Our overnight stay turned into 10 nights until the needed part could arrive and the repair completed. Even though there are many long term campers, the sites were neat and not cluttered with junk. This campground is heavily treed and our pull thru site had a large concrete pad. Ants were a problem from all the trees and someone came out and sprayed our site. One day it looked like they fogged for mosquitos. There is a nice pond at the front of the campground. US19/US82 is a busy road so it might be a problem for the light sleeper. Verizon phone worked well and we did not use the campground password protected wifi. Utilities worked well. Good Sam discount was available for 4 nights and they do have weekly and monthly rates. We would stay here again.

We stay at this state park once a year to visit family. However, this is the first time we have stayed during the summer months. I must say that our stay this time was pretty disappointing. The water spigot at our site and the one next to it were leaking and I do not mean dripping, the water was pouring out of the faucet with no way to shut it off. The picnic table and fire pit were not usable because the weeds had encroached on the parking pad so badly that we could not use them. When we camped here in the past, the sites were raked and clean, ready for occupancy. The trees really need a good trimming. We saw numerous rigs with trees hanging on RVs. The bathhouses were not cleaned very well either. I am not sure whether it is a lack of state funding or if the campground is only taken care of during snow bird season. The campground was not full over the July 4th holiday. This campground is sort of big rig friendly. We had to do some creative parking to keep our truck off the road and many parked on the grass even though the rules did not allow this. The roads are narrow and some of the pull-through sites are shaped in such a way that it is difficult to pull in a big rig. Choose your site carefully. We never saw a park ranger patrolling the campground during our stay. We will return because it is an economical place to stay when visiting family.
