This is a great park. Very nice sites, all with asphalt pads. Our site was grassy and large enough for our 30' trailer and screen room with room to spare for the kids to play. You must travel by ferry from Marblehead, OH to the island. The fee was approximately $186 round trip for our car, trailer and family of 6. The island is quaint, with most people traveling by golf cart. The state park does not allow golf carts inside, so it made for a very quite, low traffic stay. All interior road are asphalt and in great condition. You can easily walk from the campground to the beach on Lake Erie, water is sandy and very shallow, great for kids. Not alot to do on the island, 1 mini golf and several little tourist shops. The island is not big, so you can bicycle it easily. It was a great place to relax. Prices are very high for grocery items etc, so plan ahead and bring all your supplies to avoid having to shop on the island. We all enjoyed this park, and would go back again.

This was the worst campground that we have ever stayed at. The entrance to the park was difficult to maneuver with a travel trailer. The one lane bridge to the entrance is an accident waiting to happen. The campsites were so small and close together that you could not even park your vehicle on your site. Other campers thought nothing of just walking through the middle of your campsite to get where they were going. Including walking right between the lawn chairs you were sitting in! The quite rules were not enforced. They have many permanent sites and golf carts at this campground. People were driving by at all hours of the day and night. One night at 12:30 a.m. people were driving by in golf carts yelling and honking their horns. For fire pits they had metal tubs with holes in them that looked like they came out of washing machines. Our campsite was so close to our neighbor that we could hear everything they said. Including the cursing fist fight that the man and woman had in the wee hours of the morning (4:00 a.m.) that went on for over an hour. No one from the campground came to break it up or even speak to these people. The bathrooms were so dark and filthy, my children were afraid to go in them. This is not a family campground.

Very nice park, good sized sites. Had many activities for the kids: outdoor movies, planned activities like scavenger hunts and craft projects. The lake was not very clean, but the kids did not seem to mind. Nice play areas and interior roads. This park also had a laundry mat.

This is an older park. The restroom facilities were in great need of updating and repair. They were not very clean either. The rest of the park, however was clean. The owners were very nice and helpful.

This is a great park. Beautiful lake front sites, clean, clean, clean. The owners are friendly and accommodating. Swimming area is great, and fishing is good too. The restrooms are wonderful, new and always clean. Clean laundry facilities on-site. This park is so great you need to book a year in advance.
