The campground is approximately 5 miles from I-75 traveling on acceptable country roads; a bit narrow but fine if done slowly. Roads and sites in the campground are gravel and relatively level. We drive a 45ft MH with a tow and were able to navigate the campground without removing the car. Utilities and sewer placed well and worked fine. The owner checked us in and was very friendly and helpful even getting up early to let us through the gate the next morning, although we could have done that ourselves. The campground is mostly shaded making satellite and OTA reception poor. Verizon hotspot worked adequately for email and basic internet surfing. There are a few sites with less tree cover which would alleviate this issue. We did not use the restrooms or laundry so cannot comment on that. Campground is gated so security felt good. We would use this campground again if we were in the area and needed a spot to stay. We camped at Totem Pole Park in a Motorhome.

Many trees. Office staff are very helpful. Park is gated and completely secure. May be better closer to the office. Rural setting, nothing nearby commercially. No credit cards accepted. No discounts. We camped at Totem Pole Park in a Motorhome.

20 miles from Toledo and the excellent, world-class, Museum of Art. Highly recommended. Then have lunch at the Maumee Brewing Co., also excellent.

I am not really sure where the bad reviews are coming from. We stay here year after year and enjoy each stay. True, the road into the campground and the road in the campground are dirt but are well maintained and potholes are promptly patched with gravel. We saw many places in the campground that had been recently taken care of. The water does have an odor and if you are picky about your water I would bring plenty in. WIFI is said to be available throughout the camp, but we were not able to connect. It definitely needs to be upgraded. That covers any negatives. The staff there is very nice, very helpful and have always been pleasant to us. The beach is sandy and clean. The lake was fine to swim in with a sandy bottom. No evidence of any problems. The kids certainly enjoyed swimming and playing there. The playground was full of kids the whole time we were there, having a wonderful time. The restrooms are kept clean and the showers are some of the best we have experienced. The water pressure could be low if there were a lot of people showering. Cell phone coverage is fine for both AT& T and Verizon. Our site was large, fairly level and well maintained grass. There is a nice mix of shaded and sunny sites. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Totem Pole Park in a Travel Trailer.

We use this as a base to go to Cabela's and wine tasting. There are numerous wineries within 30 minutes of the campground. Our favorite is Pentamere.

Awful place. The "crystal clear lake" they mention is horrible. Wouldn't swim in it on a bet. Water supply is contaminated with sulfur, so be sure have bottled water. Dirt/gravel road into campground and throughout. Wi-Fi weak and slow. Convenient overnight stop, but I'd check out other options. We camped at Totem Pole Park in a Motorhome.

Decent park with a nice sandy beach and pond. Couldn't access Wi-fi despite being only a short distance from the office. They do let outsiders in for swimming and gatherings. Gravel roads, but not much trouble maneuvering. Camp store offers some basic items. We'll probably stay here again. We camped at Totem Pole Park in a Fifth Wheel.

No Internet access, no cable TV. Overpriced for end of season. Ant nests everywhere. Site had little grass and was mostly dirt. Would not stay here again unless in a pinch for an overnight. We camped at Totem Pole Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here to visit family. Hot and humid and park is full of mosquitoes. Some people had permanent trailers and came mostly on weekends. They were by far the most unfriendly people I have ever run into. I would never stay here again. We camped at Totem Pole Park in a Motorhome.

A simple campground. Very nice counter help upon checking in. Not much in the way of a camp store. We were really disappointed to see several dog walkers failing to clean up after their dog(s) and nothing to encourage them to do so. We were visiting the Toledo Art Museum and this was a good campground to visit Toledo. Has clean and tidy bathrooms and there's plenty for children to do. We expect to return when we need to stay in the area. We camped at Totem Pole Park in a Travel Trailer.

Campground is kept up. Easy access with large grass and gravel sites. Wi-Fi worked pretty well. Air card and cell phones not so much. No laundry. Local TV signals were strong, ask for a SAT site, many are blocked by trees. About 3 miles from US 23 use exit 9 north or south bound. The road from exit 13 is pretty bumpy. Quiet relaxed campground. We camped at Totem Pole Park in a Motorhome.

Check in was friendly, and we were given a long pull-through where we wouldn't have had to unhook. The sites are grassy with a narrow strip of gravel, but we needed blocks to level. There are both shaded and open sites. The restrooms were very clean and the playground was nice. There are some seasonals, but sites were kept up. Cable TV is not available, and we were only able to locate three local channels with our booster. We could not get a WiFi signal the several days we were here. It is expensive for what is offered, but it is definitely the best campground in the area. We will return to see family in the area. We camped at Totem Pole Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park has very friendly and helpful staff. We were passing through the area and needed a campsite: called as the office was closing, staff stayed open and gave us directions to the campground. Very clean and attractive campground. We camped at Totem Pole Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a marvelous park. We were here in the fall so during the week it was so quiet and peaceful and the weekend that we were here was the park's Halloween weekend which was very busy with lots of children of course, but lots of fun as well. The owners and staff at this park were wonderful. The park is absolutely immaculate. The downsides, which is why I gave them a lower "rating" were in spite of HUGE open areas, which is wonderful, there was no designated dog space - with all this space why not put in a large off leash area? Also, there were no laundry facilities on site. Additionally, we came into the park for three or four nights and due to unforeseen circumstances needed to extend which brought us into a week ~ however, the owner would not prorate us to a weekly rate, claiming that we needed to "sign up" for a weekly rate when we first came in!!! UGH ... guess that worked well for the campground however, since because of our situation we ended up needing to be there for a week and they got the daily rate - In spite of that, which really "turned me off" we would probably return here, but would certainly investigate through rvparkreviews the other campground(s) in the area. We camped at Totem Pole Park in a Motorhome.

We have camped at Totem Pole Park many times, used to be once a year we camped there, generally being the only place we camped locally. This year we camped there 2 times so far this year, and will be camping again here soon. The last time, and next time, will not be with the camper, but tent camping. We're taking my nieces and nephew camping again, July was their first time and they loved it! This is a great park for families, children and adults alike. Very friendly, very clean, beautiful place, well kept. Can't wait to camp again! While they don't have a pool, they do have a 5 acre lake for fishing and swimming, which is well maintained as well. We camped at Totem Pole Park in a Travel Trailer.
