Bay Shore was a decent campground. The playground is older, but we liked the concrete pads on each site. They charge extra for air conditioning which we never even used but oh well. Some our family members really love Bayshore but we thought it wasn't anything special. - Ilove2camp

We have been camping here for 5 years. This year we decided to get a seasonal site here. Best decision yet. This gentleman runs a very clean campground. He doesn't put up with shenanigans of any sort. The restrooms are spotless. There are lots of fun activities. They have at least one band a month in the summer months. July had two bands. This weekend is Mardi Gras weekend and there will be two bands playing on Saturday afternoon and evening! We've made some good friends and every weekend is a blast! - KellyK

This is a really nice private park right on Pymatuning Lake in NE Ohio. The campground is well-run with lots of activities that you'd expect at a campground like this. The pool is rather small for a campground of this size and tends to fill up pretty quick. But the mandatory "breaks" that they take every hour helps to move people along. The rest rooms and showers were very nice and clean at all times. All of the RV/trailer sites have a sewer hook-up so that was a nice feature as well. And be careful with the water pressure. It's like a fire hose, so definitely bring a pressure regulator along. - tdslsmo

Pymatuning State Park is not like the other Ohio State Parks we have visited. Most spots are taken up by seasonal campers. Many sites are 20 amp, some are 30 amp, and a few are 50 amp full hook up. Most sites are not adequate for our 35' motor home. The spots are too short and not level. However, we stayed in the pull thru spots (1-7) and were quite comfortable. There was shade on our spot so we didn't need the 50 amp service to run the two air conditioners. The park is clean, well patrolled, and quiet. I would camp here again. - Tammy7

Stayed in a walk-in RV campsite for a week or so before July 4th weekend and through July 4th weekend and a few days later.
First impressions of a campground start at the office personnel. The staff at Pymatuning State Park, OH side were extremely friendly and accommodating. No matter what time of day, even amidst other customers yelling at them, they were very friendly and patient.
Not only were the staff friendly but so were the seasonals. Just about all of them would make small talk or say hi when walking by.
The campground is huge with a ton of families. Lots of children, which my children enjoyed. Most of the kids seemed to get along just fine no matter where they were from; be it Cleveland or rural areas.
The bathrooms were a little beat up structurally, but clean, with lots of hot and high water pressure. There are many places to find drinkable water to include filling the RV's fresh water tank. Many accessible dump stations. A ton of playgrounds. The beach was a little small but it didn't matter with the kids. Lots of fishing from the lakeshore.
4th of July weekend was a blast with fireworks being launched along lakeshore. They even had an outdoor movie theater playing Disney type movies. Lots of happy energy that weekend. Every weekend had many families with children. Even mid-week was full of families with children.
Wifi was rocking from the camp office if the RV wasn't more than 3 or 4 rows down toward the lake, else you need some kind of range booster to pick-up the wifi.
We really enjoyed the vibe of the campground and general area. Just an easy going laid back feel.
It's the kind of campground that you want to return to.
The only negative I observed was the park ranger/police guy. He seemed to be looking to harass people, but other than that it's a near 10. - mynyel

Had difficulty leveling our vehicle. Other than that a lovely place to stay. Staff were extremely helpful. - trtog7
