This park may have been upgraded since the last review. When we got there, the area had just been mowed and trimmed; it looks very nice. The forty asphalt pads looked brand new to us. They're 45 feet long, but only about 8 or 9 feet wide. The bathhouse looks new, as well. The floor is concrete, but aside from that it's large and very well kept. The Wi-Fi worked well. The $29 rate reflects the discount with a military ID. No matches were going on, so there were only 2 to 4 rigs there the whole four days we were there. They do have a lot of ants; take some yard spray. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice clean park but it has gone to the dogs. Until last week there was a no pet policy, now its changed. There is no WiFi or swimming pool but the beach is within walking distance. The wife and daughter went wading and got some kind of redish oil on them. Got to see the ROTC in training. (Looked like a nice bunch of younguns, so I think it was Jr. ROTC.) The price is high for what you get, but the cheapest in the area. I was staying here to get some repairs done on the air conditioner. I would come back if needed to, but not by choice. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Camp Perry is the home of the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP), along with Ohio National Guard units. Because it is a dual use facility, non-military has access to the facilities for a variety of uses, and it is a great place to stop. The RV park is located about 1/2 mile inland from Lake Erie and has a large, sandy beach. The RV park is new within the past two years. A brand new shower/rest room facility just opened in June 2008 and it is superb. Access to that building is via your key used to unlock your campsite water & electric. Each site is a back in, but the sites are huge and will accommodate the longest RVs. Each site has full water, sewer, electric. There is a small PX located nearby that is quite well supplied. Camp Perry is used extensively for military and Civilian Marksmanship Program shooters, so if the sound of small arms/machine gun fire is not your cup of tea, this place isn't for you. Military barracks are located across the street from the RV park, but the soldiers keep to themselves. The park is immaculate, well maintained, and easy access both in and out. Check in at the Camp Perry Conference Center to get key for your site. The parking lot for the Conference Center has two sides; park your RV in the LEFT side as you enter, and you'll have plenty of room to turn out for the RV park which is about 1/2 mile away from the conference center. GPS coordinates for the RV campground are N41deg 32min 33.15sec/W083deg 00min 58.86 sec W. Conference Center coordinates are N41-32-46.13/W083-00-47.49, readily visible on Google Earth. RV Park is not shown on the Google Earth picture, because the overhead shot is vintage 2002, but it is located at the coordinates given. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our 4th time at this park and it won't be our last. We had such a great time. The rear dump station comes in handy when leaving when most folks think only about the one station at the front of the park. Shower house/bathroom in front was not spotless but not bad either. A lot of foot traffic there. As some others have said the card entry is somewhat of a pain but on the other hand you know only people who are actually staying there are using the park. This is a busy park but the campers are friendly and the park has a lot to do for the kids. By 10pm at night it was darn quiet so that was nice too. We'll be back again next year. Site 141 rocks! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed for 2 nights during the week on our visit to Put In Bay and New York. Very easy to find and easy access for big rigs; we have a 40ft 5th wheel and had no problems getting into our site. They had a very nice gentleman take us to our site which was a nice touch; no issues figuring out where you are supposed to go. Nice big campground with 4 very clean pools. Nice snack bar and camp store. 1 mile from the Miller Ferry to Put In Bay. If you want to come and go from the campground you must have a key card that you put a $10 deposit on and get back when you leave. We left very early in the morning so we turned it in the night before and were promptly refunded our $10. We did not have a full hook up site and used the dump station on the way out with no problem. Great RV Resort. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a holiday weekend and I thought the price was acceptable. I loved that there was an adult pool along with a toddler, family and sprinkler play zone. Lot was VERY level (for our 42 footer) which we always appreciate. Camp staff goes out of their way to help. Campground was great for adult bicycling. Close to Jet Express and Port Clinton. Will come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Mixed thoughts on this park. It is quite large, and had a lot of permanent/seasonal rigs, and cottages. Our site was in the middle of these. Good recreational facilities. Showers were older, but well maintained. Only two washers, two driers, which is inadequate for a campground this size. It's a mature campground, with lots of nice big shade trees. Alas, it also shows signs of age, and could use a face lift. The wooden deck at our site had rotten sagging planks, that someone will fall through one day soon. Likewise, the picnic table planks, being unfinished, were warped and split. Didn't trust it either. My most common complaint about campsites applied here too. Too many places just don't get how important WiFi is to travelers these days. WiFi here was office only. Considering how cheap WiFi repeaters are these days, it's hard to understand why parks don't pony up a few hundred dollars to cover the entire park. Not a bad pitstop, and convenient to the Bass Island Miller ferries, if you're going to Put-In-Bay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Most of the short term sites do not have sewer. There is so much to do in the area so the park is full most of the time in the summer months. Because of the local entertainment we have used this park for 5 years as a family reunion site. They work hard to meet our needs and get the family all camped in the same general area. The management is nice and tries hard to meet all needs. There is such a large turnover of campers it is hard to keep the showers/restrooms clean and they do try, however every time we needed them they were dirty and needed cleaning. With such a large turnover, many tents and no sewer it would be very hard to keep them clean all the time. The advantages are all the things for the kids/families to do in the area and at the campground. We will stay there again with our family. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We really enjoyed this campground. The pools were really nice and camp store had extensive inventory. The sites were of ample space and shaded well. We also liked the close proximity of the park to the Miller Ferry. Would definitely recommend! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Cedarlane is mostly a seasonal campground but has many sites available for weekend and holiday camping. Most transients sites are located on the backside of the campground, away from the seasonal sites. The sites are level, long, wide and shaded with a lot of room between sites. The park has three pools, one for adults only. The bathrooms were clean but old. The showers were free but water could have been warmer. This campground is close to Put-In-Bay and Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky. This campground is ideal for a short stay since it does not have cable. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I've camped for many years and found this campground to be very clean and impressive. We rented a cabin for two nights and had a great time. The cabin was clean and contained beds and other furniture, a dorm-style refrigerator and microwave. The bathrooms and showers were clean and well stocked; the only negative being that the electrical outlet in the shower facility didn't work. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The camp store is well stocked and the prices are reasonable. There are four swimming areas consisting of three pools and one water park-type facility with buckets that fill and pour on you and water showering you (very cute) types of things. One pool is a kiddie pool, one is an adult pool, and the third is for everyone. You have to get a bracelet at the camp store each day before using the pool; this is to ensure that only paying customers use the facilities which, in my opinion, is very reasonable. The park also has a laundry room. Although I didn't use it, I did check it out and found it to be clean and adequate. There was a MAJOR thunderstorm one of the nights we were there and the park staff was out immediately after the thundering/lightning stopped, while it was still raining, to clear up the tree limbs that fell. I was very impressed by this. There is also wireless Internet available for campers' use right behind the store. There are three picnic-type tables under a roof and electrical outlets are available. The wireless Internet worked very well. Additionally, there are numerous interesting places to visit nearby, including the private community of Lakeside and the Marblehead lighthouse; Cedar Point Amusement Park is pretty close, as well. Finally, be sure to stop by Jolly Rogers in Port Clinton for a delicious fish sandwich--YUM!!! It was so relaxing that I wish we had been able to spend our entire vacation there! We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
Very nice park a short drive from the Put-in-Bay ferry. Three pools, one adults only. Sites are grassy and there are a lot of trees. The bathrooms were clean but old, and the water could have been warmer. Lots of seasonal campers. Nice staff, good store. Wi-fi works around the office/store. Security gates, so you have to go on the intercom to get in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground is mostly seasonal sites and was very quite during are weekday stay. We stayed in a pull through site, which was spacious, but had no shade. Site had a slight grade with the sewer connection at the top end of the grade and our TT connection was at the bottom. Three pools an adult only, a wading pool 18 inches deep max and a kid pool 3 feet max. Also a splash zone for kids and a nice playground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice park. Our site was sod and level. Many permanent rigs. Owner said only about 80 sites are used for transients. Also store boats and RV's in one area. Speed limit within park was posted at 5mph and road had many pot holes that kept anyone from driving faster. Quiet, well landscaped. Showers and restrooms were immaculate. Friendly staff. We were camped, at our request, right next to a dump station. It was fine until an employee came to empty the large collection vat from all of the permanent RV's, then we wished we were a little farther away. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is very nice. Clean, level in the area we were in, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. There are a lot of seasonals here. The site we had was shaded although most of the ones at the rear of the campground were not as lucky. The pool was clean and they have a nice kiddie pool. There are several dump stations all over the place so when it came to dumping on the way out, there wasn't a big delay. Overall, very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here for several nights with our grandson. The campground has exceptional swimming and play areas, including an immaculate wading pool for little children. However, they are at one end of the campground, which is long and narrow, so your site could be a long way away. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the store was well stocked, including much information about places to visit in the area. We enjoyed the campground and would definitely return there if we are in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed here on Resort of Distinction (ROD) membership for 7 nights in B section. Lots needed repair including electric and water. Was told water was city, but could not drink or cook with it - heavy chlorine. The rest of park was great. They also were in off season mode. Would come here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Main road is very good. Camp site roads are gravel and need to be graded. Large drive thru sites. All hook ups worked but are in need of maintenance. Site slightly off level about three inches side to side. We were there 5 nights and every day had a sick acting skunk wonder around the RV's. Brought the skunk info to the maintenance attention and they could care less. The park could use some TLC. Would probably use again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed for 10 weeks during the summer of 2012. The website makes the resort look more luxurious than it is. A good listing of attractions in the area. They are not connected to social networking. I found most of the online reviews pretty accurate, and would average them out to a two-star destination. Membership resort, so rates vary from member to member. Confusing! They do try to get members to upgrade, but a negative attitude flows, due to the resort going downhill. Close to RT 2. Port Clinton is a water town, and about five miles away. The only thing missing from town is a laundry facility. Went all the way to Fremont for that. The entrance to the resort is beautiful! Problem is security does rounds a few times a day which creates a long line at the entrance. RV sites need a lot of work. Grass kept cut. Nice lakes. Roads good. Facilities are hotel, marina, RV area, recreation building with two pools (in and out), game room, racquetball courts, playgrounds, pool tables, snack bar, store, rental boats, laundry facilities, cottage rentals. Everything is looking run down. Terrible laundry facilities. Dryer out of order the entire stay, in both the RV area and hotel. Pool is nice, but they’ve started a new policy where guests have to go to the entrance every day to get a wrist band. They are also charging $5 for guests. When I asked why the bands were not available at the pool area, I was told, “Too many people were complaining to the employees, so they moved it to security. It was not to inconvenience guests.” Unfortunately, it does! Marina is sadly empty. RV area is run down and electrical units need repair. Putt-Putt area ripped up, non-functional. One racquetball court not up and running two years in a row. Playgrounds okay. Community feeling within resort is non-existent. No activities to bring guests together. Something is wrong here. There does not seem to be communication among the employees. The overall attitude is it’s all about making their job easier, not treating the guests with professionalism to encourage return visits. It’s also odd when making a reservation, they always give the impression the place is full, but in reality it’s empty. No pet parks, but also everyone seems to do a good job of cleaning up after their pets. Great walking areas. It’s free wireless with several towers. Way too slow over the weekends! Otherwise, I was able to watch a video with few slow downs. I have T-Mobile; husband Verizon. Lost a signal every once in a while, but overall no problems. My lasting Impression is something is wrong. Either owners are just not involved or don’t care. I have never seen the manager out and about in two years. Members are as a whole, not happy. They don’t seem to know how to generate profit without hitting their current members. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is Coast-to-Coast. The sites are all gravel pull-throughs. Sites are spacious - both wide and long. I needed 2 full inches to level side to side. There are few trees and no shade. Laundry consisted of one washer and one dryer. Both cost $2. Restrooms were clean, but they had insufficient heat. The showers were cramped and there were no hooks. Water temperature was impossible to control and the hot water was exhausted after 3 minutes. There was no hot water in the sinks. The water tasted OK, but the hot water did have a faint sulfur odor. Both water spigot and electrical pedestal were in need of maintenance. Free Wi-Fi was so slow it was useless. Guards manned the security gate except in the dead of night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice campground, but had to decrease rating because their electric melted our 30 to 50 amp plug, due to electrical problem on the power station. All the 50 amp sites are taken by annual/seasonal campers, so all that is available for travelers are 30 amp sites. There was a bag over the power station when we arrived to our assigned campsite. We called for maintenance, and their electrician assured us after testing that the power was fine. We hooked up, and it seemed fine, but when we went to disconnect a week later, found that damage resulted to our power converter plug. It was melted and took lots of effort just to remove it from the power station. Thankfully, we have a surge suppressor on our RV, and it protected our RV from damage, so we only had to buy a new 30 to 50 amp plug. Also the water spigot handle was broken; told the maintenance staff about it when they were checking the power when we checked in, but they did nothing. When we left, the water would not turn off, so there was a gusher when we disconnected our water line. They then fixed it for the next camper. The pool complex at this resort is very nice, they have adult only time 9 to 10 AM daily at the indoor pool, spa, and sauna. Very convenient to Lake Erie parks and ferries, also there is a Kroger and Wal-Mart within 10 miles. Seemed to me that maintenance, security, and recreation staff did not really care about serving campers, it was just a "job". Overall, the facilities are much nicer than other campgrounds in the area, so they do well. We stayed through our ROD membership. Would stay here again, with reservations about the electrical. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in our Motorhome at this park just after the FMCA Rally in Bowling Green, Oh due to proximity and desire to explore. The staff did not return 2 different calls for reservations till next day. Upon check in, they assigned us a 30amp spot when 50amp was asked for but denied. While hooking up, found several empty 50amp spots in same location and asked guard shack if we could change and we were allowed to do so. Wi-Fi is available but seemingly only at clubhouse. To be fair, the facilities (what we used) seemed very nice. Close to town & Lake Erie activities, but will not return due to attitudes of schedulers and reservation problems. Too many other RV facilities in area for them not to be proactive with traveling campers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice ROD park. Came closer to deserving the "Resort" designation than many we've seen. The staff was friendly and helpful. Amenities include indoor and outdoor pools, tanning bed, golf course and marina. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Many of the sites do NOT have sewer connections - we were assigned one of those sites at first and went to reservations to get it changed. We could NOT get a 50 amp site - so suffered in 90+ degree heat with one ac. We would go back because there is so much to do in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful park with large sites. They have Wi-Fi even though they do not advertise it. 24 hour guard at gate and pool has lifeguard. Great maintenance and a pleasant staff. This will be a target park for us! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is part of the ROD membership system. While the entrance makes a good first impression, the ranger at the check-in station was rude and had their car parked in a spot that made pulling over to check in very difficult. The campsite roads were in poor shape and the campsites were not very well maintained. There are a lot of untidy seasonal sites there which give the campground a very cluttered appearance. Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very convenient to Camp Perry. Sites are kind of narrow but OK. Lots of seasonal sites.
Owners were very nice. I was there for 8 nights and they gave me the weekly rate ($100) plus one night. If I make it back next year, this is where I'll
stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed 2 weeks, employees are great. EPA is after them and all campgrounds about dumping gray water on the ground so they pump out. Power was fluctuating enough to kick our surge protector. An electrician was called in and it was fixed within two hours. Sites are gravel/grass, big rig compatible. Lots of trees, we wiggled back and forth until our roof mounted satellite locked on. The lake has a bounce thing to keep kids busy; plenty of activities. Park is mostly seasonal, but does not have that mobile home park feel. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I guess it depends on what you're used to, but we thought this was an extremely poor value for the money. While they claim to have 50amp service, they actually only have 2 sites with 50amp. Everything else is 30amp. We feel that $32 for a grass site with only 30amp service, water and NO sewer, No TV, NO shade is a lot to pay. There is nothing special or even nice enough to talk about when trying to describe this park. I would not stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here for the National Matches at Camp Perry. Nice clean park, dog friendly, stayed two weeks. The weekends are more crowded than weekdays - lot of seasonal campers. Sites and roads are gravel, big rigs stay up front. Seasonal folks are friendly but get testy when you have to drive on their site to make it around a corner. Gray water is allowed to drain at site, but black tank must be pumped out or drive to on-site RV dump. Most campgrounds in Northern Ohio are like this. Employees are very helpful and professional. There are planned activities i.e. movie night, pot luck. The swimming pond has a trampoline-like bounce thing and a beach. I will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is the definition of bland. First impression when arriving is this could be cute. Opinion quickly changes after you check in. The registration / store is open until 4:00 pm then closes. The store selection is sparse at best and the condition of the store is uninviting. This park caters to seasonal sites and offers maybe 15% of the park to transient campers. The sites are grass, but were still relatively level. The park offers a small playground for children and a small pond for swimming. We did not see any other amenities for adults or children. During our stay, we did not see any park employees or any security. The one thing that is present and often is a train track that seems to have activity constantly. It didn't seem to what time of day it was, the train rumbled by, blowing it's horn. Since this park is also and the end of the runway of the local airport, you often heard small aircraft taking off and landing throughout the day. Between the planes and trains, this is not a very peaceful park to rest at. We assessed this park as OK if you wanted to stay in your unit and do nothing, otherwise it was boring and dull and showing signs of being decrepit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Level sites with decent spacing, trees, and grass. Combination fishing/swimming pond with entertainment on the weekends. Decent WIFI, but bath house is in serious need of a remodel (and bug spray)! Lots of children and dogs, nearby (busy) train tracks and small airport next door make it a little on the noisy side. We plan on trying a different park next time, but it is not off our list for future stays. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a fairly well maintained park located in the Lake Erie Island region. The park has many permanent units that are above average in maintenace. The park has activities for all ages of campers. The weekend that we were there they had an evening beach party with DJ, activites, etc. The also have many other activities during the summer. The management does a fairly good job of maintenace and responding to the campers needs. We did notice low voltage during the afternoon. The temperature was in excess of 90 degrees and there were a large number of motorhomes in our area. There are many activites in the area including Cedar Point, Lake Erie Islands, fishing charters, etc. There is EXCELLENT shopping within 2 miles. I would recommend this campground if East Harbor State Park does not have available spaces. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
